Damn, this looks amazing!

Also, selling digital markers and pens is going to totally be a hot business!

Fascinating article about the book publishing business.

"Book publishers could have a future. Beyond controlling access to the marketplace, book publishers provided one other, very valuable service to authors - book editing. And the demand for editing, guidance and advice for authors is growing as the number of authors grows. Book publishers could find ways to transition their business models to serve the growing number of eBook publishers, instead of hoping that Barnes & Noble shuts them out. But it's becoming clear that they won't."

yes, we all owe a lot to Ritchie's pioneering work on Unix and C. It's not been a good month for computer industry pioneers.

Windows 8: most ideas clearly ripped off from iPad and Lion. Once again, MS proves they are excellent at copying ideas!

I like the way Windows 8 looks, but for me it's too little too late.
