It is Super Saturday, the day before Super Sunday, and I have nothing to do on a cold and rainy day besides blog...
Ann Althouse: Sarah Palin was a blithering idiot until she became a devious genius, in response to an article in the NYTimes. "What I love about all this is the extreme contrast to the way Palin was mocked when she resigned as Governor of Alaska... Her political career was over. She was 'toast.' [Now] Fox News is building a TV studio in her house in Wasila. That's so not toast."
Perfect! The Internet has been nominated for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize. "The nomination was proposed by the Italian edition of Wired magazine for promoting 'dialogue, debate and consensus through communication' as well as democracy." Given past winners I give it little chance, but it is a great entry. Stay tuned!
Jeremy Allaire: The Future of Web Content - HTML5, Flash, & Mobile Apps. "I’m often asked 'Will HTML5 replace Flash?' on the Web. The quick answer is no." I think much depends on how well Adobe's upcoming Flash for iPhone converter will work... if it works, Flash will remain king, but if it doesn't, then it will die a slow death. For most developers being able to run well on iDevices is crucial.
More iTalk: Charlie Rose hosts Walt Mossberg, David Carr, and Michael Arrington. I thought it was a great discussion. Dave Carr has an interesting non-technical perspective: when you're using the device, it just disappears. That's very promising...
Huh, looks like Google may have a Super Bowl Commercial. Interesting! Will it be 1984 revisited? Stay tuned (in the 3rd quarter)!
Panda-monium: sixteen panda cubs pose for a class shot. Wow, how awesome is that!
Okay, that's it; time to go for a ride... wish me luck.
