Running up hills forces the knees to lift higher, one of the most desirable developments for any runner, because this governs stride speed and length.

Lydiard (with Garth Gilmour) in his book Running With Lydiard.

The bottom line, Williams said, is that the internet is “a giant machine designed to give people what they want.” It’s not a utopia. It’s not magical. It’s simply an engine of convenience. Those who can tune that engine well — who solve basic human problems with greater speed and simplicity than those who came before — will profit immensely. Those who lose sight of basic human needs — who want to give people the next great idea — will have problems.

Getting beat in beatdown. Touted as the best beat them up on iOS this game lives up to it’s billing with responsive controls. And a satisfying feeling to landing punches.

In real life, I’m in the studio at 3am. Waiting for the last bug to be squashed before submitting our own game/app to the App Store. Two awesome programmers are with me doing some hard yards.

I never cared much about the internet. Until I could take it with me.

I didn’t notice the beginning of the internet. Maybe I was too young or ignorant. But I did realise pagers and handphones. Camera Phones. Palm pilots. Nokia Communicators. Game boys. SMS. Twitter. And the iPhone. 

I’ve lived life as a nomad, always on the go. This made me care about things I could bring with me that gave me a sense of place. This made me care about the things that we now collectively simply call; mobile.

I never cared much about the internet. Until I could take it with me. Before and even in the early days of iPhone, twitter was the main container for the internet on mobile.

But flipboard emerged and could contain even twitter. It is the internet in a beautiful package. A mobile first experience that has just entered the web space. And I just love the idea of the internet being informed by what started out as a mobile app.

Mediums change. And some are better than others. I feel a ‘web page’ was a transitionary technology. Like a pager or a fax machine. A flipboard magazine. That exist both in a mobile app, and on the web I think something like this will out live what we know today as website.
