Exponential curves feel gradual and then sudden | cdixon blog
"Exponential growth curves in the “feels gradual” phase are deceptive. There are many things happening today in technology that feel gradual and disappointing but will soon feel sudden and amazing."

Theorizing the Drone : Longreads Blog
"An analysis of the pattern of a person’s life may be defined more precisely as “the fusion of link analysis and a geospatial analysis.” For some idea of what is involved here, imagine a superimposition, on a single map, of Facebook, Google Maps, and an Outlook calendar. This would be a fusion of social, spatial, and temporal particulars, a mixed mapping of the socius, locus, and tempus spheres—in other words, a combination of the three dimensions that, not only in their regularities but also in their discordances, constitute a human life."

cityofsound: Essay: On Tesla Powerwall, and the skirmish between Moore's law and physical laws
"all those energy specialists don’t really know what they’re dealing with anymore … what is the domestic energy version of “Unexpected item in the bagging area”? I’m not sure I want to find out. … As a form of architecture, Tesla Powerwalls will need to be designed with what Vitruvious called “firmness, commodity and delight” in mind. They’ve probably got two out of three; it’s the ‘firmness’ that will need to be perfect with energy. … Powerwall plus energiewende could be wunderbar. … This is the key question about Californian tech; can we ignore their ideology and lifestyle and just steal their machines? I don’t see why not. … the system design, the more fluid layer of services that is overlaid onto our existing infrastructures, that is the truly transformational possibility, predicated on this increasingly intriguing skirmish between Moore’s law and the laws of physics. That form of design, rather than traditional architectural thinking, is the force driving our cities now, just as previous generations of technology did."

Mobile first — Benedict Evans
‘it's actually the PC that has the limited, basic, cut-down version of the internet. … The interaction model is much more complex and sophisticated, and it continues to change all the time … a smartphone knows much more than a PC did … the smartphone itself is an internet platform in a way that a PC was not. … we should … think of the PC as having the basic, cut-down, limited version of the internet, because it only has the web. It's the mobile that has the whole internet.’
