Some reading for the Christmas break.
Charles Stross has a wonderful big-picture overview about mobile phones, Google and Apple.
Mark Coleran has assembled screenshots of his work on Fantasy User Interfaces.
Not at all festive, but a wonderful post by Edward Harrison at Barry Ritholtz on "The recession is over but the depression has just begun."
A wonderful insight into how to treat complexity (or not) in Afghanistan. Very entertaining article and do download the powerpoint. Winning the War through Powerpoint.
And of course, the campaign to bring back The Mogambo Guru.
