David Weinberger, quoting Anil Dash: Now being introduced as a blogger “is a little bit like being introduced as an emailer.” The idea that there was a culture with shared values has been dismantled. He challenges himself to substantiate this: “We have a lot of software that forbids journalism.” He refers to the IoS [iphone […] Continue reading
How many people will die if they are unable to reach basic internet services?
attacks are becoming increasingly powerful, and computer security experts worry that if they continue to escalate people may not be able to reach basic Internet services, lik… Continue reading
I was thinking of calling this post the post “The World According to Gargle” (and then I thought of Harry Nilsson’s “The Most Beautiful World in the World” — and I did a little variation on that theme ). The Gargle search engine tends to reduce people to single websites — if people post everything […] Continue reading
The idea captured in the phrase “user agent” is a powerful one, that this software we run on our computers or our phones acts with agency on behalf of us as users, doing our bidding and following our wishes. But as the web evolves, we’re in fundamental tension with that history and legacy, because the […] Continue reading
If you hear that “everyone” supports a policy, you should ask whether “everyone” has been defined to exclude anyone expressing a different opinion
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/18/opinion/krugman-marches-of-folly.html What we should have learned from the Iraq debacle was that you should always be skeptical and that you should never rely on supposed authority. If you hear that “everyone” supports a policy, whether it’s a war of choice or fiscal austerity, you should ask whether “everyone” has been defined to exclude anyone expressing […] Continue reading

http://www.hyperorg.com/blogger/2013/03/16/what-the-new-yorker-doesnt-say-about-aaron You don’t come out of it with a sense of what Aaron accomplished or of the impact of those accomplishments. I understand that Larissa was not attempting to write the definitive biography, and that she was more interested in exploring Aaron’s character in the context of those who loved him. But I’m afraid that […] Continue reading
They’ve got a pretty nice interface for it, btw — the magical Google Now. It knows what information you’re likely to want to see, and shows it to you. It’s really good. An example of how good/creepy it is. My friend Jen was coming to visit from SLC. Google Now told me her plane was […] Continue reading
I enjoyed a recent article by Francisco Dao: Factions: I’ve seen factions develop in groups as few as four people, but typically I’d guess factions become a genuine problem somewhere around 30. Think about trying to get a classroom full of people all on the same page. If you’ve been part of the very early […] Continue reading
