Here are my weekly notes:
- Really interesting introductory piece by Arthur Brisbane, the new Public Editor of the New York Times.
- In case you haven’t seen it yet, take some time, and read this New Yorker article on the Koch brothers, “the billionaire brothers who are waging a war against Obama.”
- I would say the Netscape offices are a pretty important piece of Silicon Valley’s history, which is why I was surprised to read that AOL is moving out.
- Headline says it all: It’s 2010 and Canadians pay the highest cell phone bills in the world.
- For the geeks reading this: Vampires (programmers) versus Werewolves (sysadmins).
- Do you ever talk on the phone anymore? I rarely do. I much prefer text, email, or some other form of communication. That’s why I think it’s so interesting that cell phones, which make it possible to talk anywhere, are the devices that are killing voice.
- One of my favorite links of the week: Information Overload in the 17th Century.
