Mobile, ecosystems and the death of PCs — Benedict Evans
So, a simple answer to a complex question - when we say 'mobile' we don't mean mobile just as when we said 'PCs' we didn't mean personal. This isn't about the screen size or keyboard or location or use. Rather, the ecosystem of ARM, iOS and Android, with 10x the scale of Wintel, will become the new centre of gravity throughout computing. It will take over things like IoT and wearables in one direction and, in due course, the data centre in the other, and it will push onto the desktop. The smartphone is the new sun.

Is "Undesigned" the Next Great Web Trend? Fat Chance
"Dadich's immersion, Fried's speed, and Meaney's context-specific clarity already co-exist in digital design's big tent. The future of web design lies in expanding that tent, not folding it up. ... So what are the right notes? On this, of course, designers differ wildly."

A Whole Lotta Nothing: Broken feedback loops
Let me be clear this isn't an ownership issue, it's not a frail ego issue, and it's not that I don't love remixing (I do!). My point is when there are half a dozen places someone can hit a like button or mark as a favorite or leave a comment that I have no knowledge of, the feedback loop is broken.

How Information is Actually Getting More Expensive
"If information wants to be free, it's failing. ... We tell ourselves that we're paying for connectivity, but obviously we're paying to be connected to information. ... Today's media mindset is 'A thousand dollars for access, and not one cent for content.'"

Journalism.org- The State of the News Media 2009
"There are growing doubts within the business, indeed, about whether the generation in charge has the vision and the boldness to reinvent the industry. It is unclear, say some, who the innovative leaders are, and a good many well-known figures have left the business. Reinvention does not usually come from managers prudently charting course. It tends to come from risk takers trying the unreasonable, seeing what others cannot, imagining what is not there and creating it. We did not see much of it when times were better. Times are harder now."

The Buzzwords of 2008 - NYTimes.com
Picking out political buzzwords from 2008 is like shooting moose in a pigpen. The fundamentals were so dizzyingly strong, it could be tough to keep them all straight. Before you knew it “The One” had become “That One” and the “team of mavericks” were going rogue on each other. You mixed up Client 9 and Candidate 5 at the holiday party and tried to change the subject.
