Emotional threads are woven like a spider web, gently, fast and everywhere... After a while they turn into a thin, but strong web, that waits for flies that fly around. And where is the spider? Where is the author that generously created this artistic -emotional piece? Look out: you might accidentally meet him in the reflection of the mirror.

It’s our preference to use a text editor, like HomeSite, TextPad or TextMate, to "hand code" everything, rather than to use a wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) HTML and CSS authoring program, like Dreamweaver. We just find it yields better and faster results.

The next 12 months for TV interfaces: way more personalization. Although the barriers are who shares who’s data with who. We’ll see it at the app and platform level. Across multiple devices. But (the questions remains) can TV be made more relative to the household based on all of the data?
Apple has always tried to create an emotional response. They’ve designed the software to make you feel a certain way. They use terms like ‘magical’ and ‘beautiful.’ The way Apple goes about controlling its ecosystem feels very much like the way the church controlled content.
We’re in an age today where the ideologies that form who we are and what we believe are being shaped by the technology developers. By the people that control content. A small algorithm that puts one news story in front of another. The people who are pushing those ideologies - for good or for ill - are folks like Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and you and I.
The cathedrals were designed to illicit a response. The tech devices are designed to be magic like the cathedrals were designed. Look to the future…the devices are getting more intimate. More powerful.
Google’s mission is to compile all the world’s knowledge and distribute it in a way that is accessible. They are also working on translation. That will be an extremely powerful technology. Imagine if you could get translations to the Middle East protests in real-time.
Apple changed the game when they introduced the app store. They created an eco-system. They control the content of everything you see and everything you do.
More data is created in 48 hrs than was created from the beginning of time to 2003.
Steve jobs doesn’t say, ‘When you buy an iPhone, you buy $188 of parts, built in China where lots of people commit suicide…and you’re saddled with AT&T, the worst wireless network in America. Jobs doesn’t tell you that…he sells a dream.
