Apollo is stupid

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

From Niall Kennedy’s (always excellent) analysis: Adobe’s first big Apollo app is an Internet video application codenamed Philo. The pervasiveness of Flash Player created multi-billion dollar Internet video startups powered by the Flash video format. The Philo team hopes to expand the display size and quality of distributed videos and get publishers encoding using the […]

Where are they?

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

I’ve always heard considerations of scale used in favor of there being other intelligent life in our galaxy – There are so-and-so many suns with so-and-so many planets, many of which have the same conditions as our planet when life arose here. Surely there must be lots of other life and surely there must be […]

Gareth and Francis have been tearing up and down western America. They stopped over with me in San Francisco, and now Gareth is beautifully evoking how Vegas always fails to meet expectations but the Grand Canyon blows them away.

Gave up on AllPeers 0.5
