Production values at TED are astonishing. Partly because of these guys in the back. (at Vancouver Convention Centre West)

Yep. This. (via Okay Everyone Now Listen Carefully | WeKnowMemes)
Awesome video about NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson. “We were called ‘computers’.” Incredible that we are only ~50 years removed from this.
From today’s WSJ story. (sorry about the paywall)
But this image from Flurry tells the story:
So, the big questions: will that time in the browser go up? Down? Does anyone care about browsers as they’re constituted now? To really be relevant again, do browsers need to change? What will they look like? Who will make them? It’s somewhat structurally (although debatably) in Google & Apple’s interests to continue their push towards native.
So that’s the challenge & opportunity as I see it.
Right now, we use the mobile web a lot like we use SMS — as a lowest common denominator that we know will be installed on everyone’s phone if they don’t have the app.
So: what’s next? Who will do it?

I retweeted this earlier as a new Banksy, but looks like it’s in Vancouver, so probably not Banksy but someone else.
Nonetheless, I’m sort of entranced by it. It’s wonderful. Captures so much. Obviously captures a real & current challenge in our house & others as devices pull our attention into the interwebs and away from the children who need us more. That’s something I constantly struggle with and want to be better about.
But it seems more universal than just children. Speaks to our relationship with online, with connectivity, with 24x7 contact, with seeking approval, more.
Love the work and the statement a lot.
