  • Bill Hill: The Future of Reading on the Web, Part 2

    Great interview. i particularly liked the part when it turned to tracking and the evolution of our alphabet.

    Lascaux cave drawings
    Lascaux wiki

    In my subscription to National Geographic there is an add that has a picture taken of cave writings. I was fascinated by the idea that these are early forms of writing. Place a camp fire in the cave and let it flicker on the walls and you have early form of moving pictures that must have been mesmerizing to the creator and his friends. I wonder what the price of admission was. Maybe they traded furs or stone cutting technologies maybe it was some kind of social bonding.  The art work and rendering of such animals is remarkable. I think these cave paintings are a testament to the legitimacy of the human brain during prehistoric times. Ill bet these people had the intelligence to use a computer if they had them. It makes me think, that if we compare the computer technology to those cave drawings that there are still many more advancements to be made in technology. Particularly in writing and communications.

    Bill suggested an interview with Greg Hitchcock. Is any one at Channel 9 heading over to him to hear about hinting fonts?

  • Bill Hill: The Future of Reading on the Web, Part 1

    I’m not a fast reader. But I like to read. I take my time to take every thing in. I went and started to read the book found on your web site, The Mabinogion. I read for about an hour. I read about the fountain, the castles and black nights of who acquire mortal wounds to the head with a sword. All interesting stuff. I pushed F11 and read the book at full screen mode on my 19" monitor desk top computer. I would like to go back and pick up were I have left off. Some kind of book mark would be nice.

    Something I really miss about reading on screen is having an actual book in my hand something I can touch. A physical representation of volume. I had a hard time getting a good representation of how far into the book I was in relation to the finish. I saw the page numbers and that helped some. I had to page threw several button pushes to see how close I was to finishing the chapter. I don’t know if this is relevant to any one ells but it’s my first thought when reading. I like knowing how big the book is im reading. I evaluate the time i have to reading. I like to be able to finish the storys i start.

    I liked the font, it was clear to read. Much more clear than the Gutenberg.org. The button up at the center top broke me away from reading. Maybe a button at the bottom right on the last page might help so I don’t have to search as far for the method to turn the next page. I think scrowling also distracts from reading.

    (Edit: links to the different chapters would also be nice. )
    (Edit: i went back and finished the first story. in the book)

  • IE 8: Privacy - It's about more than cookies

    I had a visitor use my computer. Once they were done with it I keep getting junk mail delivered to my email address with the visitor’s name. At this point its just annoying but its also a little creepy to think that some how my email address is getting out there just by browsing the internet.

  • Jillian Venters - A Goth inside the Deathstar

    I loved this interview. I got a kick out of how many times Charles said "interesting" in this interview.
  • C# 4.0: Meet the Design Team

    Fascinating interview. I found the most interesting part was when the conversation was turned to concurrency.
