The word “creativity” was made up less than a hundred years ago. It is time to stop using it.

"So is that a tablet in your pocket? Yes. LTE didn’t just change our phones into things that look like tablets; it also changed them into things that act like tablets. Older cell networks, even 3G, used dedicated connections to move your voice, just like a landline. But LTE turns your voice into data packets like the rest of Internet traffic. Until last year, carriers were mostly using older networks and technologies to carry voice calls, but now everything’s moving to voice over LTE, or VoLTE. It’s basically VoIP—like Skype."
Don’t buy another phone ever again. That’s a weird thing for us to say, right? We’re WIRED! But by the end of last year, it was fancy-ice clear that the distinction between phones and the other little touchscreen computers with over-the-air Internet connections had become blatantly artificial. The only reason we still have electronics with that Bell-ian name is so carriers can sell us a plan.

Vandaag worden de Nobelprijzen uitgereikt. En minister Jet Bussemaker (Onderwijs, PvdA) wil dat de Nederlandse wetenschap meer gaat samenwerken met bedrijfsleven. Een goed idee? Ik ga aan tafel met Nobelprijswinnaars Jan (1903-1994) en Niko Tinbergen (1907-1988).
