This is great! This was one of the most interesting features of the OLPC XO laptops, and I don't know if that feature ever actually got fully implemented on that platform. I see it as handy for things like a chat app, but it could be absolutely amazing and literally lifesaving in an emergency scenario.

I'm curious, I believe in the XO's case, they had to design the wireless chips to be able to do this. If some of the comments are about Android and Windows devices doing this, is this now a standard capability of wifi? Or some specific chipsets? Or is this done with something like going back and forth between networks?

Great article on Apple and the whole market share vs profit share and an analysis of the three main arguments of why Apple is doomed.

My current favorite device is my Expert Sleepers ES-3 module. I'm loving it because it's letting me easily control my '75 Minimoog and a bunch of Moogerfooger pedals in quite interesting ways.

I've stopped being amazed at how wrong the general tech news is about Apple. They just have no idea what they're talking sbout and have no interest in reporting facts. This is a good little bit by John Gruber about that. I'm the most amazed that Apple's stock prices are based on this willful misinformation.

A long clip of my cat Mud walking with me down a long set of stairs and through our parking lot back to our place last year.
