Internet shape our minds

June 23, 2009

More than a century ago, when first microcomputer walked in our houses, young boys used to play…work with that new toy for many ours.
Childs use to be very quick learning machine with new tech-toys, rather than jurassic adult people.
Do you remember yourself or your childs in these words ?
Here is a paper about how new toys (internet) change our minds.

For more than a decade now, I’ve been spending a lot of time online, searching and surfing and sometimes adding to the great databases of the Internet. The Web has been a godsend to me as a writer.
For me, as for others, the Net is becoming a universal medium, the conduit for most of the information that flows through my eyes and ears and into my mind. The advantages of having immediate access to such an incredibly rich store of information are many, and they’ve been widely described and duly applauded.
My mind now expects to take in information the way the Net distributes it: in a swiftly moving stream of particles. Once I was a scuba diver in the sea of words. Now I zip along the surface like a guy on a Jet Ski.

Google Fusion Tables: an experimental system for data management in the cloud

June 18, 2009

Today we’re introducing Google Fusion Tables on Labs, an experimental system for data management in the cloud. […] Fusion Tables […] is on fusing data management and collaboration: merging multiple data sources, discussion of the data, querying, visualization, and Web publishing. We plan to iteratively add new features to the systems as we get feedback from users.

Opera Turbo: some cookie problems

June 3, 2009

Opera Turbo is a great solution for low bandwith lines.
Last days Turbo Mode has a problem with cookie: they aren’t stored.

No chance to login Yahoo! Mail nor this blog.

Disabling Turbo Mode everything works fine.
Activating “Ask me before accepting cookie” is a way to check if your case asa well.

I’m not the only one experimenti this behaviour, of course. πŸ˜‰
There is a post about it on Opera’s Forums, here: Opera Cookie Problems .
Hoping they are just tuning Turbo servers. πŸ˜€
