Some people seem to think Google’s ChromeBook is just a cheap laptop with Linux on it. But I think that’s short-sighted. This is yet another attempt at a network computer. Read about it on ComputerWorldUK.

☞ Bureaucracy Rebooted?

  • Public notices and inquiries should be moved from the newspapers and the bowels of the web online to where we are: networks like Facebook and Twitter.

    An important topic, but the solution proposed here needs thinking through some more to take into account locally-important minority channels.

  • regulatory capture occurs when a state regulatory agency created to act in the public interest instead advances the commercial or special interests that dominate the industry or sector it is charged with regulating.

    This also applies to standards bodies and to procurement policies. The only solution in my view is a combination of extreme transparency and a fixed life for the agency after which it has to reboot.

  • We bet everything on Apple and iOS and then Apple killed us by changing the rules in the middle of the game.

    Surely there has to be an anti-trust case in here somewhere?

  • This rework of the New York Times is, as Jeff Waugh commented on Twitter, beyond awesome.
