Ready for “micro” 2008

You've been Microscobleized

Douglas Karr says 2008 is year of the “micro.”
I totally agree with Douglas’ good post, which gives me a good opportunity to bring out my business card. Thanks to Hugh Macleod for that! Douglas started his post with “Perhaps it’s obvious but I believe 2008 is really the year that applications and strategies go Micro.”

It’s great to be ahead of the trend. :-)

Oh, and I just uploaded new pictures of the real “micro-scobleizer,” my son Milan to my Flickr account.

  1. Going ‘micro’ is merely the commodity market at work, things always go from big to small, pack more in, better space efficiently. House-sized vacuum tubers to Mainframe to Server Rooms to Desktop to laptop, laptop to PDA, PDA to Blackberry/Cell Phone. Nothing’s “going micro”, it’s always moved that way. And it’s well beyond micro, into the virtualization invisible.

  4. Robert,

    It’s always a thrill to get a trackback from the guy who inspired me to blog (after reading Naked Conversations). I was very close to putting Video up… and then didn’t, but you and Nil are correct so I’ve updated the post to include it.

    Thanks!

  7. Robert, when we was still young and impressionable, PCs were called micro-computers. :) Remember that? Funny how we’ve come a full circle. What next – CP/M-2008? dBase 08? VisiCalc MMIX? :D

  10. Still too early for this stuff. An iPhone, especially one that isn’t on a 3G network, isn’t enough.

    Better luck in 2009 … and even then, “micro” may be too early.

    Besides, the world in 160 characters is a sad world, indeed. Instead of microblogging, read Plato’s “Lysis” this year. Might give you a new take on social networks and what it really means to be a “friend.”

    Happy New Year!!

  13. Hey! I said that too, LOL. Seriously, though, he’s right.

    But why doesn’t he mention microvideo: utterz, seesmic, qik? That’s where *a lot* is going to happen.
