Day 1

Hate this Apple bashing that they aren’t opening up their platform. Keeping it with just the Web platform is an incredibly sensible move. “Opening” their (proprietary) platform will increase fragmentation… we should all be aiming for Web convergence. One Web platform for all.

Why don’t people bash Microsoft’s Silverlight or Adobe’s AIR ffs? It’s not the Open Web! I am sick and tired of Flash even. Can’t we recognise for the burden it is on the “open standards” Web??

A business model to be bought by Adobe. Great… not. This is not the open Web imo. People positioning themselves to be eaten up by a monopoly.

I don’t understand tagging. Why isn’t it in the same as “categories” in Wordpress? Should I be migrating my categories to “tags”? WTF! Thankfully Matt is around… :)

My thinkpad X40 hard drive is crashing… this happened about a year ago!

If you like this, you might like the stateless Web kiosk software I develop. Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
