Words Spinning into the Future

March 1, 2007

As we blog away, write away, who knows where these words will be read. All it takes is one inbound link into a collection of thoughts, and they become accessible to future generations.

So often it takes a bit of a stumbling attitude to discover new things. It has happened in science, and it happens in art – a chance combination of words, or fluid stroke, an odd chord – the creative leap into a new space.

All is not grand though: we work in an electronic and digital medium; things can be erased instantly. No power, and we lose our built-up archives. We trust there are guardians and safeguards in place.

We do our work and our thinking; now and into the future.


What are we all Waiting For?

December 26, 2006

The 3 big consoles have arrived, Intel have made their Core Duo play, no one cares about Vista, and there’s enough ipod models to sink the Queen Mary 2.  So what’s everyone waiting for in 2007?

1. WebTV?  Nah, bandwidth hog, and who wants it on a laptop?  Cable and HDTV are too close a fit.  Youtube fills the snippet market.

2. Macbook Thin?  Nah, the 13 inch model for low-end, and the 15 inch Pro take care of the two markets.  A 12 inch superportable just ain’t enticing enough.

3. Human Assisted Search?  Nah, I trust google.  They’ve got everything else of mine, they can have search too.

4. Jesus?  Don’t know.  I think the Mayan Calendar points to 2012.

5. Get Rich Quick?  where?  sign me up!

Conclusion?  2007 is going to be a dull year for tech. Web2.0 and ajax will mature and refine, but 2006 will go down as the revolutionary year.  All the money is on climate change as being the number one issue.
