  • Ted Nelson’s 1974 book “Dream Machines” is very much in the spirit of the Whole Earth catalogue. I bought this book at the Stanford bookstore when I was studying computer science. On the front cover is “Dream Machines: New Freedom’s through computer screens, a minority report” and the back is “Computer Liberation: You can and must understand computers now.”

    This is the culture I still see today alive and well in the indie developer community

  • Now we have an existential challenge: Sustainability and the subproblem, Climate change. We have about the same length of time to solve it. This risks of inaction are enormous. My thesis is that developers can lead the way.

  • This is going to be a $4.3 billion market in 7 years. Let’s make sure that data is available.

    Look at CC diagram. We need people in each of these areas pulling data together and developing open source conventions to share it, update it and give people access through REST APIs on, say, the Google App Engine.
  • These are both projects that are trying to take data and bring it down to the personal level.
  • Every corner of life, pulling open data, polished and usable.
  • Bill McDonough talks about the sustainable world is build ecologically balanced systems of abundance, like the natural world. This new system has more liveable cities, better tasting. You feel more healthy. Some of the most beautiful and clever designs are cradle-to-cradle. This is what I believe, and I’m directing my apps towards this purpose.
