Offbeat – 07 June 2013


Perhaps someone will come up with a virtual bar app. Network by video with friends, in a virtual bar. Enter the number of drinks as you go along and watch the display become fuzzier and fuzzier to match your level of inebriation.

Computing fascinates me, though perhaps that is the wrong word. ‘Infostream’ sounds more apt. Those old things that used to run programmes or, if you remember the Eighties, used to allow you to write programmes, are redundant, mostly, unless you are a programmer. It’s all about various types of information and little else.
