Off-topic rant: Why are browsers such terrible writing instruments? Shirky's spot-on: "really, the browser has been around for a long time now; why should anyone even have to make an argument that autosave, undo, and re-sizing are good functions for an app to support?"  11:58:33 PM  permalink  

Mobile Phone Advertising That's Pull, Rather Than Push: Interesting note on ads that engage cellphone users. First, a billboard that shows a you video when you sent it an SMS (and presumably sneaks in an ad). Second, a magazine that encourages readers to photograph the pages and send them in to the publisher to enter a sweepstakes (and presumably pay closer attention to the ads).  It's reported that people have been snapping ads already to share images of clothes and hair that they like.  11:40:26 PM  permalink  

GmailFS: "GmailFS provides a mountable Linux filesystem which uses your Gmail account as its storage medium. "  Pretty neat - apparently similar hacks are available for yahoo or hotmail systems.  One more step to "the web as platform".  9:32:41 PM  permalink
