  • A comment on Talk: George Dyson: The birth of the computer

    Jun 17 2008: Does anyone know where one might find the beautiful printouts he used in the End slide...I think they were outputs from Nils Aall Barricelli's "creatures"? I would love to have a large print of that for my living room. Great talk, I've heard the history of computing many ways, this was fascinating and entertaining.
  • A comment on Talk: Robin Chase: The idea behind Zipcar (and what comes next)

    Feb 8 2008: I don't believe Robin is suggesting we shun mass transit. And although delivery could be a bit snappier in terms of drawing people in her ideas are sound. Congestion pricing aside, the idea of using mesh networks with open standards is not just sound, but could in fact have profound impact on the world. Free, equal access to information pushes us more towards a meritocracy and we're going to need all the merit we can get to get out of the climate crisis. If information is free, it will be good products and services that get money, not just those that happen to have a stranglehold on markets. There is a great need for more open standards advocacy.
