____________________[PRO] Cell Phones Alter National Park Landscape

When Sean Morrissey scaled California's 14,491-foot Mount Whitney for the first time a few years ago, he couldn't wait to take in the view. A woman who made the climb at the same time couldn't wait to dial her cell phone.

"This one woman was making call after call," said Morrissey, who is from Los Gatos, Calif. "It seemed very out-of-place. It seemed out-of-place to go through all that effort to make an outbound call."

____________________[PRO] Gmail сделает Microsoft ненужным

[PER] яблоко, Uncertainty of Human Knowing и ipain

что такое яблоко, или The Uncertainty of Human Knowing.

так вон и учат они детей "познавать мир". помнится, шабельников всегда хихикал над подобным редукционизъмом, взамен, конечно же, пропихивая свою "психику как фукциональную систему". пропихивал довольно бойко, до сих пор в дырявой моей голове много чего осталось из той книжки.

____________________[PRO] information keeping strategies

"The keeping decision is fundamental to the management of personal information and fundamentally difficult to do. In the ideal, we keep only useful information and nothing else. And this information is filed, tagged or otherwise organized so that it is available later when we really need it."



для тех, кто всё ещё далек от идеала - хорошее введение в information keeping strategies.
