Goodbye US, and hello Tartu! I am back home after a three week trip, with a few quick thoughts for this, my first post after returning home.
- Even if Doggie and Catsup smell a bit funky, it’s great to be home, because mobility is not an issue here,,
- Om Malik thinks that ” As a society, we are entering an increasingly narcissistic phase, enabled by web technologies …”, which is why blogs must become more socially interactive. I think that I am already narcissistic enough, enabled (among other things) by my brother in law’s excellent cooking. OK, I too seek the holy grail of enhanced interactivity … But only if it means I get to talk more.
- Fred Wilson thinks that geek technology . promoting better and more sticky information flow (my interpretation of his nice post) is about to go mainstream. I am a great fan of all kinds of flow (which reminds me that I should have a PSA test soon), but am already too old to wax poetic about getting sticky. Anyway, Russian based spam has followed me around for a while already. Comrade … trust me, you need p**** enlargement right away, quick!
More seriously, Om and Fred discuss some new apps that are fun — and Fred gets into Fire Eagle in another post. The beat goes on. But — am I alone in thinking that they are trying to generate buzz? … More bluntly, we are not yet at the better living thru mobile apps stage.
BTW, the old DuPont ad line “better things for better living thru chemistry” has achieved a meaning that DuPont never expected. The phrase is now shortened to “better living thru chemistry“, which also changes the meaning, leading to things like the image below from Young Frankestein:
Rather heroic, n’est ce pas? I recommend a Google images earch for “better living chemistry” (which is where I found the above image).
