Robert Kuttner, co-editor of The American Prospect, cites EPIC in a recent column. Too bad he calls the movie’s mega-company “Google-zon”… it’s like those weird older comics where they’d be like, “Beware the Bat-Man!”
David Vise peers into the soul of Google for The Washington Post’s Sunday Outlook section, and finds some stuff I didn’t even know was going on. (Googling your genes?) Good, quick read.
This one’s from 1987, made for Apple. And you know what? It’s not all that outlandish.
I’m not sure exactly what John Blossom’s talking about, but he mentions EPIC. Must be something brilliant. (Via Read/Write Web.)
Neighbornodes are group message boards on wireless nodes, placed in residential areas and open to the public. These nodes transmit signal for around 300 feet, so everyone within that range has access to the board and can read and post to it. This means that with a Neighbornode you can broadcast a message to roughly everyone whose apartment window is within 300 feet of yours (and has line of sight), and they can broadcast messages back to you. Boards are only accessible from computers that go through the local node.
Additionally, Neighbornodes are linked together, making up a node network to enable the passing of news and information on a street-by-street basis throughout the wider community.
Google announces plan to destroy all information it can’t index. Also: The Onion is sporting a nice newsy-lookin’ redesign. And it’s opened its online archives back to 1996. Hott.
The Seattle P-I is starting a new project, the “Virtual Editorial Board,” and Mark Trahant cites EPIC in his introduction.
