- Gruber on the WWDC Keynote yesterday… The only thing I disagree about is the coverflow thing. I can see a lot of cases where rapidly scanning through a large number of files would be profoundly useful.
- The Telegraph has been covering the whole Olympics logo debacle in a particularly interesting way… I think people miss the point. Think about an Olympics that isn’t about the nobility of sport, Greek aspirational betterment of the soul through domination of the body, and start thinking of the energy and fun of running around like a maniac. Makes sense
- CNN Money on Facebook’s Transformation into a platform for other people’s products. Huge. Now you don’t compete with Facebook, you compete with other people on Facebook. Reminds me of Ancient Greek concepts of masculine and feminine. I suspect no one thought of this before because it’s such a male industry.
- Stephen Bayley in the Guardian rips the Olympics logo a new … er … ring? The one thing he says that really resonated with me was that people are now obsessed with brand as a mask for reality, rather than brand as a representation of something fundamental to your organisation or product. Agree with that.
- Vile Telegraph logo that rips into the people who came up with the Olympics logo… Apparently the media are camped out around the houses of people who did the work. And can I just say that ¬£400,000 is a reasonable cost for a medium sized team of people for a year doing skilled work.

Would you care to elaborate on your comparison of Facebook integration to Ancient Greek concepts of gender?
