India will become one of the most interesting mobile markets in the world when the rates really enable broadband. The speeds still remain slow. Mobile computing will redefine India in the home and out and about. I say bring on the low rates! The economic consequences will redefine the developing world.
"Seeking is the granddaddy of the systems." It is the mammalian motivational engine that each day gets us out of the bed, or den, or hole to venture forth into the world. It's why, as animal scientist Temple Grandin writes in Animals Make Us Human, experiments show that animals in captivity would prefer to have to search for their food than to have it delivered to them.
Do we really keep searching to get our next fix?
I'd enthusiastically endorse the direction in this post. It also made me realize that I have to do more to capture and share my pictorial and webcontent. Most bloggers end up being bandwidth challenged with any success so they outsource the photo and video storage to the likes of flickr, or YouTube. For me that means a new host. I'm all for aggregating and controlling one's content or at least being the source for it.
So it's time to look for a new host. I'm also with Om that there's a lot more we could do with the WordPress platform that is both social and personal. While I've installed things like Tweetbacks and using Twitterfeed and Feedwordpress to aggregate content I may post else where we are nowhere near the point where it is as simple as using Twitterfon on the iPhone.
I think I'm waiting for Twitter Client to grow up and be blogging clients too. Now that would really help.
