Don Norman on Wearable Devices | MIT Technology Review


MIT Tech Review – still some of the most thoughtful articles around.  This one is on wearable tech – Google Glass in particular but can apply to any.  “When used mindfully, wearable technology can enhance our abilities significantly.”  And I agree, there will definitely be uses, as augmented reality has not been easily accessible before now.   But also, “it’s a great myth that people can multi-task without any loss in quality.”  It will be an ongoing argument – this is an insightful piece discussing both the pros and cons.


WordPress Powers 18.9% of the Web, Has 46M Downloads


Article on The Next Web interviewing WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg.  Obvious the hold WordPress has on the web and that more and more people are using it (vs. Blogger, Tumblr, or platforms that used to be more popular) – new versions, powering 18.9% of the web, it’s impressive.  Not surprising, it is still a platform used primarily on the web.  I’m not sure how many are left that make that claim.  Article at TNW.
