reloaded on IMAX

A while ago I read somewhere that a technology was under development to convert standard 35 mm (or 72 mm) film for IMAX projection. The first movie to be converted was Apollo 13. Now it seems that Matrix Reloaded has been converted too, and will be showing in London starting today. There is an IMAX theatre here in Dublin, in Parnell St., but I've never seen it open. Oh, well.

ozzie on mobility

[via Francois]: Ray Ozzie on Extreme Mobility:

I believe we're currently in a transition period for personal computing: from a tethered, desk-bound, personal productivity view, to one of highly mobile interpersonal productivity and collaboration, communications, coordination. We're focused right now on devices and networks because we're coming at the problem bottom-up: preoccupied by gizmos and technologies' capabilities rather than focusing on how our lives and businesses and economies and societies will be fundamentally altered.
The article also includes an interesting summary of the evolution from Notes to Groove.

the great leap

[via Karlin] An article from the guardian on the change in human behavior that resulted in our dominant status today:

60,000 years ago [was] the low point. Then there were as few as 2,000 humans in existence. The worst time in the history of our species; one we nearly didn't survive.
