Uncrippling Tablets · David Wein­berg­er points out in Will tablets al­ways make us non-social con­sumer­s? that tablets im­ply a less-interactive “lean-back” re­la­tion­ship with the In­ter­net and thus the world. It’s pos­si­ble we can fix this by just un­crip­pling the key­board; I can’t re­al­ly have a con­ver­sa­tion with the world if I can’t jam text in fast, in­ter­rupt­ing bursts of high-word-flow with flur­ries of lo­cal ed­it­s. I sure don’t want to live in a lean-back world.
