Adoption · I don’t of­ten de­vote a whole post here to just one link, but I think Si­mon Phipps’ The Adoption-Led Mar­ket de­serves it. If you’re in the busi­ness of tech­nol­o­gy you prob­a­bly need to read it. Espe­cial­ly the “Consequences” sec­tion.

Compact Camera Talk · Last month at the Moose Camp, I gave a short talk on high-end com­pact cam­eras. I whipped it up in a few min­utes, made a links page, and the whole thing was well un­der ten min­utes. It was fun. It turns out that Bruce Sharpe was in the au­di­ence with a video cam­er­a, and he pol­ished up and pub­lished it un­der the ti­tle North­ern Voice 2008: Best Com­pact Cam­eras. The qual­i­ty is re­mark­able, par­tic­u­lar­ly when you con­sid­er that the whole ex­er­cise cost Bruce ap­prox­i­mate­ly noth­ing. If any­one read­ing this is in­ter­est­ed in a point-&-shoot with pre­ten­sion­s, they might find it use­ful. But here’s what’s in­ter­est­ing: in a world in­fest­ed with videoblog­ger­s, any pub­lic ut­ter­ance, no mat­ter how off-the-cuff, is, po­ten­tial­ly, an au­dio­vi­su­al pub­li­ca­tion. A per­ma­nent one.
