Hi folks, glad to see ya’ll here on the new forum!
There’ve been two really great articles on personal computing that have really struck me this week already, and I just want to share them:
Musings of Michael McThrow: Where Did Personal Computing Go Wrong: The Abandonment of User Empowerment, The Rise of “Big Platforms,” and Solutions (mmcthrow-musings.blogspot.com)
What I Want From The Internet - Christopher Butler (chrbutler.com)
Both caused me to come back & review the Mission statement, the 7 principles here. I think the first link is a little closer/more obviously related to us here. But I also strongly think the only tenable future for software is an online future, that the Internet has to be the place where what happens next grows, & that ties back to What I Want.
