Don’t read this without a cold shower nearby. It’s about the future of the computer and why they’re rubbish right now. Mindf**k.If you can possibly be interested in how to speed up the loading time of a website, here’s a good article.The Limits of Copyright talks about how far we can go.Fortune article about the hot new idea of the year.

But the figure, attributed to market researcher DoubleClick, was more than triple the 3.2 million visitors logged by Media Metrix. Theglobe.com quietly recanted its statement a month later. DoubleClick blamed the miscalculation on human error and faults Theglobe.com for using the data in a securities document without permission. Theglobe.com declined to comment.” Some people I know will find this funny!Who believes in website visitor figures anyway? This is an interesting article in USA Today (bizarrely) that discusses the issue.
