How suiting, am getting settled in San Diego for the Uplinq conference and one of the first messages that I received after getting my mobile back up and running was a note for this week’s Carnival of the Mobilists at MSearchgroove.

Back when I initially got into the mobile computing area called PDAs, there wasn’t much of a thing called “memory management.” Sure, there were applications that were big and small, but for the most part, you didn’t have to think about it. You installed, it ran, you deleted the app if you didn’t need or like it, you moved on.

Funny, I tagged this mobile, but it’s a different kind of (and some would argue traditional) meaning to the word.

I have heard it said many times that the definition of insanity is doing something over and over again, and expecting the same results. So, why do we in the US continue to subject ourselves to the current wireless (educational, governmental, and a few hundred other areas) environment, wishing that one day it will turn into something that works completely for the advantage of consumers?
I think I’ve had enough. And I have a good friend Tomi Ahonen to thank for this.

Am sitting at one of my favorite coffee shops, reading on the iPad while listening to music via Mobbler on my N97 and I can ever so slightly overhear an older group of people talking behind me. Of note, I keep hearing them remark about computing, my behavior in respect to using an iPad on a glass table (one of those neat UI moments), and the overall change of media to passing through a computer.

This morning I started another book (Quitting Church, Julia Duin) and I’m already through the first six chapters of it. For such a thick and emotionally sparking topic, I’m making my way through it pretty quickly – mainly because I can associate with the author’s memes, and the perspectives of those interviewed and quoted throughout.

Came across a link today in my reading, and happened to be on my iPad while doing so. After clicking from Twitter to the article, I was greeted with a very novel solution for displaying text on the iPad’s screen.

One of the articles that helped me pass the time outside of work this weekend got me thinking again about this idea that technology really has jumped the shark (eh, correction) jumping a major hurdle into an area of safety/well-being in respect to being something that serves my needs, rather than me being the one to serve its needs.

Father’s Day should be one of the most important holidays we have. And yet, many times, I get the feeling that its more of a holiday to quell the energies formed around Mother’s Day and graduations, than to actually honor the men who have done an excellent job in raising their kids, and even the kids of others.

I have to admit that I’m not all that much a fan of business cards, nor the behaviors around them. You give someone a slip of paper, and the expectation is that the moment of putting that paper in their hand will give them initiative to reach back out to you. Then, there’s that matter of putting that information into some address book (paper, roll, or digital) – which is always a messy affair.

This is an interesting story, and not because of the scale of the project, nor its goals. Its interesting because it will put the onus of learning back on the functions of speaking, story-telling, and recall – and not in rote remembrances.

I think I talked it up too much. Yea, I totally did.
