Today's essay in the Register takes on Google Wave from the perspective of visionary change versus incremental change and suggests that visionaries should be transforming the todayness of our lives rather than leapfrogging. Wondering if Google sensed this when they famously said they were worried about having too many geniuses http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/12/02/google_hiring_practrices/ Asay re-makes the point that the open source development model necessarily builds on a community of contributors and users and not the mad scientist in an ivory tower."

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:
