I went to a Blue State Digital event earlier in the week and assembled my tweeted aide memoirs on Storify: Blue State Digital THINKS. We discussed digital trends that are now mainstream.
Its a rather long Storify, so I won’t embed it here, but its worth pasting in the philosophical bit about mobile phone’s as an extension of one’s brain:
A mobile phone is not an implant, but it functions a bit like the bionic enhancements of science fiction lore. Crucially, it should make us more productive, because of the time we save and the time we find (for example, when we sitting down on our commute, or sitting down doing our ablutions).
