The Medium and the Message

Posted by: by John Parsons on August 24th, 2012

McLuhan’s famous line (misquoted here) was brought to mind recently by the struggles of someone close to me. Let’s call him Frank. An otherwise insightful and witty writer, Frank is a somewhat erratic speller. However, to the already whimsical spelling rules of the English language has been added the benefit/curse of computerized spellcheck. Many of [...]


Print as a “Nimble” Medium

Posted by: by John Parsons on July 14th, 2012

In this blog, I’ve spent a great deal of time talking about our over-consumption of data, and how difficult it is to convey relevant information in the swirling digital chaos in which we live. For the record, I still hold that a better method of “tuning” information to our individual needs will make things better [...]


Why Gray Matter Matters

Posted by: by John Parsons on July 8th, 2012

A character in one of my favorite science fiction novels, Heinlein’s The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, is a computer that has become self-aware. “Mycroft” (a highly-augmented HOLMES IV system), wakes up and starts making its own choices when the total number of digital connections surpasses the number of neurons in the human brain. In [...]


PowerPoint Lessons

Posted by: by John Parsons on June 26th, 2012

In today’s business world, few of us have been spared that rendition session known humorously as the PowerPoint from Hell—a uniquely painful experience that was, unfortunately, perfected too recently to be included in the Geneva Conventions. These wonders of enhanced interrogation feature dense, incomprehensible text—worthy of a detailed report on bauxite mining in the mid-1920s—coupled [...]


Senses and Sensibility

Posted by: by John Parsons on June 8th, 2012

Just when I think that our over-consumption of data could not be greater, some technophile comes up with a new way to pile it on. GM’s new Cadillacs now have something called a Safety Alert Seat. When the car’s cameras and whatnot detect a dangerous condition—like drifting out of one’s lane or oncoming rear cross [...]


Software Review: Instapaper

Posted by: by John Parsons on May 31st, 2012

My grandmother’s humorous but persistent reminders to call or write would sometimes include a 2-inch piece of cardboard cut in the shape of a circle, with the word “tuit” printed on one side.[1] As I splash around in an ocean of information, looking for ways to find more time to deal with it, I find [...]


Some Thoughts on Content Tools

Posted by: by John Parsons on May 11th, 2012

There’s an age-old saying: “To someone who has a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” Too often, the tools we are accustomed to using distort our perceptions and limit our ability to adapt to new situations. I was vividly reminded of this at a recent reviewers’ session for Adobe’s latest incarnation of Creative Suite—number 6, [...]


Nimbleware Consulting debuts unique nūzmūz app for Apple iPad

Posted by: by Nimbleware Consulting on May 7th, 2012

Nimbleware Consulting today announced the release of a new topic-based information app for the Apple iPad. Dubbed nūzmūz (www.nuzmuz.com), the app is an RSS feed reader that moves away from the source-based approach used by news and content aggregators. Instead, it focuses on user-defined topics, such as current events, career goals, or entertainment. The free app is available in the Apple iTunes App Store.
