Because Sharing is Caring!…google-maps-battery

Google Map’s Location Sharing just received an update that allows you to view your location sharer’s battery status.

Why? Well, if your friend’s battery goes dead, the phone, and it’s location information, is sure to follow. At least, armed with this foreknowledge, you’ll know why they went off the grid and not take it personally.

An Interactive Newspaper

The future of printed press?

While vacationing in Zürich, I had the privilege to visit its Landesmuseum, the Swiss National Museum).

Of the great many exhibits here, one that most impressed me was this interactive journal; a digital journal, projected onto plain paper, that changes and reacts as you scroll through it.

Reading can be a tactile and even olfactory pleasure. For any one who’s sat curled up in an armchair, or tucked away between the aisles of bookstore,  book in lap..scent of aged paper wafting in their nostrils… fingers gliding across a page, their anticipation builds as one nears the bottom of the page, readying for that page turn.

The format of book appeals to us bibliophiles who appreciate the weight of a printed page. It equally appeals to we tech-savvy research moles, who prefer to navigate across the web, in order to pull together a larger narrative.

Cheers,
