@bradsilverberg  Unity is always the example of a middleware platform. I always argue that games present a different model entirely—business and technical—so as a model/example it doesn't replicate. The underlying platform doesn't matter. Games licensed by consoles or in-app captive revenue.

Coronavirus: How Will We Ever Be Safe Inside? Social Distancing Is Not Enough We will need a comprehensive strategy to reduce the sort of interactions that can lead to more infections.

Hairstylists potentially expose coronavirus to 140 clients at Missouri Great Clips via @THV11 

Wuhan lab had three live bat coronaviruses, but none matched COVID-19 | The Japan Times // is it a coincidence that they had 3 strains or that the strains they had didn't match?

@gassee  The trackpad is a significant surprise in how fast and fluent it is (words chosen on purpose). The apps that don’t support the trackpad stand out and are essentially unusable. Windowing still has a number of mysteries. I feel like at some point there will be some affordances.

1/The announcement 10 years ago today of the "magical" iPad was clearly a milestone in computing. It was billed to be the “next” computer. For me, managing Windows, just weeks after the launch of Microsoft’s "latest creation" Windows 7, it was a as much a challenge as magical.

“One stunned engineer from a major Japanese automaker examined the computer and declared, "We cannot do it." // This is an expected and natural end state of outsourcing product development. PC makers experienced this same viz phones and also MacBook Air.

1/ 2010 was the start of a most interesting time of the PC (and me). Reflecting back at how the decade ending in a few hours began. From the outside it was an exciting time in the PC industry. Windows 7 had just launched. Things would seem to be off to a solid start.

Microsoft: we were wrong about open source // it isn't fair to place this all on Steve. Microsoft was founded on the principle that software was intellectual property. Some of what I experienced… 1/

Bankers, venture capitalists and investors poured cash… // Several times in this article the ire is directed at Silicon Valley, yet nearly all of the parties AND the company are in NYC. The SV people seemed to be the ones trying to put the brakes on.
