  2. 2. “ It is only when they go wrong that machines remind you how powerful they are. ” —Clive James
  3. 3. It is the spirit that survives.· The culture of participation is spreading very quickly.· You will continue to receive a lot of stuff for free but yes, you can indeed make a payment if you like what I do.· Visual Metaphors Linguistic metaphor, however, only provides a tool for understanding the surface of the infosphere.· Computers and digital communications are the most direct expressions of this revolution.
  4. 4. Dont put gold buttons on a torn coat. Facilitate best-of-breed synergies
  5. 5. Only stretch your foot to the length of your blanket.· Control has now shifted to the Users and thats a good thing.· Closed and centralized ecosystems are becoming very expensive and thus hard to maintain· The leading apps include bookshelf, stanza which I have, ereader, feedbooks etc here is a good list.· We might very well use the same slogan: This network, "its the only one weve got.
  6. 6. “ What the country needs are a few labor- making inventions. ” —Arnold H. Glasow
  7. 7.
