Web 2.0

I’m waiting for some video cuts to upload to Vimeo from a presser I did a few weeks back, and it got me thinking.

Back in the 80s, before my dad brought the PS/2 home, I recall getting onto an older machine using PowerMenu by Brown Bag software, this was before I was blown away by 3.1. How far we have come…indeed.

What is truly amazing these days is the software you can download and install in seconds – no coding, headaches or restarts. Thanks to AIR and others, Tweetdeck, Flickr, Twitter, Vimeo and others can all be operated simply and easily. This has to be one of the largest democratizations of software and hardware in history. The prevalence of netbooks, webcams, Droid phones and other devices brings this all together. I look forward to trying out the WordPress app on my BB, should be interesting.

There is still part of me that misses Run DOS Run.
