  • Looking ahead to what's next

    23 February 2010

    The announcement of the iPad, Apple’s new device for accessing media and information has caused a lot of interest and excitement. I believe it will be a very popular product and herald a significant change in the way we consume content and even the way we work. I’m really looking forward to the change’s that will follow this and I’m excited to think about what we should be doing next…

    For anyone who isn’t so sure yet, this ‘take’ from the MDN website may be painful but is also insightful if not a little amusing!:

    “Here’s to the dull ones. The luddites. The tedious. The non-achievers. The square pegs in the square holes. The ones who refuse to see things differently. They’re extremely fond of rules. And they’ll do anything to maintain the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t help but do is to ignore them. Because they never change things. They don’t invent. They don’t imagine. They don’t heal. They don’t explore. They don’t create. They don’t inspire. They retard the progress of the human race. Maybe they have to be boring, unimaginative, a-holes. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see nothing whatsoever? Or sit in silence and hear nothing at all? Or gaze at a red planet and not even see it? While some see them as the dull ones, we see criminals. Because the people who are uninspired enough to think they can never change a thing, are the ones who hold us all back.”
