Microsoft’s Vision For 2019

I think 2019 is still in the very far future. So I hope the Multitouch Screen will be implemented in society much earlier. Possible applications are education, work, tourism, but, although the technology is available since 2008 with Microaoft's Surface Table, a lot of experimentation has to be done before people know how to work and to cooperate with multitouch-technology.

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
