A Frenchman And A Japaneseman Go Into A Bar
This very interesting and wide-ranging conversation between Loic and Joi Ito is well worth a listen (and a slightly unexciting watch - sorry guys). It covers some things I've thought about before like avatars and others that I haven't. They stimulated, alarmed and irritated me in equal amount which is always a good sign.
Some thoughts to ponder as you listen
How many generalisations are made to justify theses?
If multiple videos of the same event are mashed up - do you get a better reality or a deliberately distorted one?
The average TV viewer watches 19 hours a week, does that make Joi's 35 hours of gaming an addiction?
What quality of business processes would be created by people who "can't really write".
Two geeks in a bar and no beer in sight? Is this verification of the staggering cost of Scandanavian living?
