OK, as someone working in the online world, this is a trend I need to be aware of, but really ... "crafting a nuanced experience in the physical world"? #floatychairpeople #penny #TBBT  

I must be getting old and cynical.  Oh wait ...  

> We’re Living in an Experience Economy, Design Accordingly.

"...the growing number of technological solutions to problems we didn’t even know we had is staggering, and it gives practitioners plenty of fuel for their creative engines, but as the distinction between digital and non-digital experience continues to dissolve, it’s equally important to remember the importance of crafting nuanced experiences in the physical world."  #firstworldproblem

Agreed.  Autumn is my favourite time of year in the Northern Rivers.  Mild to warm sunny days and cool nights.
 
Autumn is a rather agreeable time of year, old chap. Boulders Beach Lennox Head.

An article in the Harvard Business Review HBR blog network from November last year, very interesting.

Wonder what Australia is contributing beside resources and agriculture?

> If You Want to Change the World, Partner with China.
by Peggy Liu  |   8:00 AM November 22, 2013

"China has packed the equivalent of 200 years of industrialization in America into just two decades.  A population of two million is considered a small city.  A Chicago of new skyscrapers is built every year.  And 200 million more people will move into cities in the next 12 years.  Here, big is bigger than you can imagine.

This vast scale means that if China can’t carry out breakthroughs in sustainability fast enough, the consequences will break the planet.  But the speed of change means China has an opportunity to leapfrog to the latest practices.  And changes in infrastructure and behavior are in many ways easier to trigger here."

Why is inequality growing? Democrats are more likely to blame the tax system, while Republicans are more likely to blame Congress and government policies. http://pewrsr.ch/1klNip3

So there'll be no more excuses about "baseload" demand now, right?

The Atlantic, 15/4/14; "Scientists Discover How to Generate Solar Power in the Dark.

The next big thing in solar energy could be microscopic.

Scientists at MIT and Harvard University have devised a way to store solar energy in molecules that can then be tapped to heat homes, water or used for cooking."

Meet 'photoswitches,' a breakthrough set of materials that act as their own batteries, absorbing energy and releasing it on demand.
