I realised the other day that the “Network” section doesn’t exist per se anymore. (One of those things one doesn’t notice within a paper; one files just the same but the titles change around you. We used to just change editor and keep on churning things out. Ah, the 90s.)
Anyway, the Science + Tech pages for this week are up. First is my column on Peter Cochrane and his futurology (I’m a fan). Then there’s a reader’s experience moving from Windows to a Mac, which I suspect may attract some Net attention. (In fact, get us slashdotted.)
John, who describes his experiences, got in touch out of the blue earlier this year as he’d decided to move from Windows (his ancient Gateway was giving up the ghost) to an Apple Mac. I encouraged him to keep a diary. In a future week we’ll have another person who moved from Windows to Linux. And that’s why I’ve been seeking someone who has moved from the Mac to Windows: I wanted some balance. It’s proved harder to find that I expected.
When the science features appear, I’ll add the links to those.
