Jason Kottke, my hero, is talking about wireless Internet on his site, and how it'll all blow over. Many moons ago, I forecasted axactly the same for WAP (the wireless application protocol). As everyone in my office was running about babbling about WAP this and WAP that, I was sitting calmly, observing the 'bleeding egde' of technology. The fact WAP rhymes with crap didn't help. Then at a meeting with a big mobile company, the top executives declared that they were dropping WAP. Suprise suprise. Not.

My most recent musical purchase has been the special edition Hybrid Album, 'Wider Angle'. Talk about great! This is the best CD I own and that's saying something. To check out more about this band, check their label, ditinct'ive. Shame about the site...

See you later.
