Low viscosity, floating on water

After not really blogging for several weeks, I'm finding it a bit hard to get back in the flow of things, but with the academic year starting soon and the next four months dedicated to finishing my dissertation (yay!) I'm sure it will come back to me.

I've spent this morning catching up on my favourite blogs, and following some interesting threads. Here are a few things that caught my fancy:

- Matt Webb finds a leopard in the garden

- Howard Rheingold reviews Rich Ling's The Mobile Connection: The Cell Phone's Impact on Society

- The Feature: Encouraging Cameraphone Use -- For Less Than Encouraging Reasons

"For all the attention cameraphones, or any mobile technologies receive for being 'disruptive devices,' it is important to remember that technology itself is neutral. Wireless devices can just as easily aid the oppressor as the freedom fighter."

WTF? How does that indicate neutrality?!

- Peter Lindberg and Matt Jones on computers and architecture

- Ross Mayfield on the reliability of the Wikipedia and Caveat Lector on heuristics (UPDATE: Matt Jones on the difference between authority and autonomy)

- Peterme on ethnoclassification and vernacular vocabularies

- Simon Roberts on the politics of glancing - to which I will shamelessly add this
