I like this. Buying old iPod Shuffles on eBay, filling each with music by a single artist, and using them as single musical units. Music and player in one.
The first of seven posts, which I’m looking forward to. I often find myself agonising over related things: a nostalgia for past futures at the expense of… well, whatever I might otherwise think about the future.
@tomcoates Well, with such a watertight argument I bow to your superior position!
@tomcoates Is your average build quick, sell up, cash out tech startup any better for a society? Possibly too much for 140 chars :)
(Following up on weekend tweets... Bocca di Lupo have been very apologetic about their mix-ups, and we’re looking forward to returning.)
Pleased that after 7 years I still get emails from people asking for mp3s of stuff I taped off the radio years earlier http://bit.ly/dSRvdd
@realmonkeybear Exactly, me neither. Or “[device] can’t do [activity]” when it usually just means they don’t use it for that.
@Zoonie So it’s not a *work* computer, for certain (many) kinds of work. That’s very different to “it is not a computer”.
@Zoonie My iPad can do a lot more than any computer I owned in 80s/90s. Other than me program it directly. But it’s not a “computer”?!
@macintosh Oh no! I read a book on my iPad last week, but it’s not a reading device! Is it broken? Should I return it?!
Woke up at four, furious blog posts fighting inside my head. It's like I've woken up ten years ago.
