Reading the New York Times yesterday about the new version of Hypertext Markup, which will present website owners with various new user tracking opportunities (New Web Presents A tangle of Risks by Tanzina Vega). Also a good piece on a secret Google project (not any longer) concerning software that allows vehicles to drive themselves.
This makes me think (in a rather disconnected way). Isn’t it a bit nuts that we buy Sat-Navs so we no longer have to learn to read maps, but then we go out and buy brain training games so our brains don’t freeze up because they are no longer being used.
By the way, if there are any bloggers out there that would like a copy of my new book, Future Minds, drop me a line and I’ll see if we can send you a copy. I can’t promise because the publisher will only send out so many copies, but I’ll try.
Max? Dan? Bradley? Ross? Gerd?
