Interesting to consider how ironclad and immutable the companies will try and make their eco-systems (beyond the obvious "more than we, as end users, would like.") http://www.forbes.com/sites/quickerbettertech/2011/08/22/google-buys-motorola-mobility-and-so-begins-the-dark-ages/

Well, the author does seem to wax nostalgic for the Roman Empire--forgetting it was mainly great for the Romans (everyone else came second), but besides that: vertical ecosystems do go beyond web protocols. Consider the recent FCP debacle. Yes, there's paths leveraging Apple hardware, but the most interesting thing I thought of was his mention of developers needing to choose an ecosystem to develop for--so that consumers may be happy with choice, but developers and business may want a return to Rome, as it were.

As if to reinforce this, I know at least one group that used a local borders as its regular meeting place.

It reminded me of a "Hinz and Kunst" sculpture Kim got me a couple years ago (http://www.hinz-kunst.de/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=258&Itemid=263). Not the same, but sort of in the same 'phylum' if you will.

Especially for Indie filmmakers, exciting to see distribution channels becoming less theoretical: http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-0712-vuguru-20110611,0,7874437.story?track=rss
