Link: Convergence vs. Specialization: Which Will Win Out? [ReadWriteWeb]

“One of the enduring themes of technology is convergence, when different products evolve to do similar tasks. The smartphone is the prime example of convergence in this era, bringing together voice and data (web) applications. Plus, in recent times, high quality photography and video. However, we’ve entered an age where we have multiple Internet-connected devices within our grasp. Many of these are specialist devices, such as the Kindle and Xbox. We’ll see many more examples soon, as specialist household objects such as toasters and fridges get connected to the Internet. So, does that mean specialization will win out over convergence? ” By Richard MacManus. > Weiter bei ReadWriteWeb

Link: Can Angela Merkel hold Europe together?

“Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, has the future of Europe in her hands. As the biggest creditor country, Germany holds the key to resolving the euro zone’s sovereign-debt crisis. As the continent’s economic giant, it is the biggest determinant of the European Union’s direction. And right now Europe may be embarking on a path that could tilt the union away from economic liberalism, risking a split and, ultimately, even a British exit.”

Bruce Sterling talk on “vernacular video”

“Here’s a very stern and sardonic Bruce Sterling at the Vimeo Festival discussing “vernacular video.” Bruce notes, “This speech goes on for 56 minutes, practically forever by vernacular video standards.” Despite that, I was riveted by all 56 minutes’ worth — Bruce takes an unexpected turn through the history of the Dick Van Dyke show on the way to explaining how to predict the future and then wraps it up with a sinister turn around the morality of cigarette sponsorship and what it is that vernacular video does that runs parallel to selling coffin nails.” Via Cory Doctorow/Boing Boing
