"Minidisc Transcribing" Update
About 72 hours after he published a post on the changing nature of advertising that contained an offhand mention of his desire for a minidisc transcribing machine, Doc Searls' post is the one and only result of a google search for "minidisc transcribing".
I choose to view this as evidence to support what I noted the other day: the tech isn't the hardest part of this...publishing and searching information are both getting easier and more efficient every day. The really hard part is figuring out what to with that information - how to respond to it appropriately. Oh, yeah: it's also a little tricky developing the software that accurately, intelligently, and consistently sorts, manages, slices and dices that big fat pile of information. But that's why god invented really smart software developers, and I'm lucky enough to work with a bunch of them...
