: Pay more atttention to FEED Magazine. I’ve been reading Feedmag since it was founded in 95, but I often neglect to go by for weeks at a time, which is stupid of me. In terms of online magazines, it’s the smartest thing going. Actually, in terms of magazines in any format, it’s as good as I’ve found.

a regular part of my updates recently to comment on other weblogs’ commentary, but Brig Eaton’s comment on eatonweb, that it might all be about brand, is worth noting. Brand is an ever increasing part of the mix of things that make up the value of products, at least in North America and Europe. So, contrary to what I understand Jakob Nielsen writes, there may be value in extending a brand through “wild” design. I do realize that this might be the most obvious and even trite post in the world, by the way, to most people who read here. Not quite sure why I’m writing it.
today on A List Apart called Beyond the Browser discussing what’s coming with several important technologies. It’s good – it doesn’t go too far (as I tend to do).
interesting: HomeRF Gets Up to Speed. Anything that moves things along the path to wireless is worth watching. Massive broadband will never come through wires – I’m talking 70-90% penetration in North America, and not just to a single box or two, but to a whole home.
I’m curious to see whether there’ll be a wire into the location and then a transmitter or if everything will be wireless. I suspect the latter, with every network transaction encrypted, auto-config of new devices entering the space according to rules, and a distribution of network monitoring duties among devices (i.e., no central server in a location controlling everything).
