Some Sunday morning to share.
Google unleashed lots at the I/O conference. Among the lots was the next version of the Android OS (Froyo) which is running the Flash 10.1 beta. Lots being said but lots. Here are some interesting takes on Flash and the announcements fromHarry McCracken, John Gruber, and MG Siegler. Bottom line it is open war fare and as I said here, for the first time, Apple is playing from behind.
Scoble has some interesting videos on how the iPad is changing art and music. Given that we saw some interesting things on these fronts with the iPhone, it is no surprise that the iPad furthers the journey.
Bill Maher has a very entertaining rant against the Republican Leadership. Excellent read.
Meanwhile in Texas history continues to be re-written in the textbooks. Two thoughts on this. This is a pendulum swing back from what had been a very liberal re-writing of many issues of our history. Second point, whenever you feel you need to re-interpret, re-frame, re-write history to shine the light on current thinking, you are in good company. (The communists, the current leader of Iran and other Holocaust deniers, etc...) Civilizations have been doing this for centuries. It's easier to make the past fit your current reality (or the one you want) than it is to deal with the complexities. Does make you wonder how this wacky era will be viewed in the future. But then again, when you can edit out facts you don't like (on all sides) and pump up views you do, it just shows how little faith you have in what you believe in.
