Many Apple Laptops (and a Few Others) at GnomedexI wondered why this photo from suddenly became so popular, accounting for nearly half of all the views of any of my photos at Flickr. Well, after following the chain from Chris to Steve, now I know (click the "large number of Macs" link).

I also enjoyed the link to an old article in Wired by Dave Winer. What's interesting is that Bill Gates did turn the supertanker around—and now Dave hasn't been a Mac developer for years. Yet he also wasn't wrong 10 years ago. Despite its best efforts, Microsoft doesn't control the Internet. It managed to slow the change, and it may continue to ride the wave, but the company no longer defines where things are going.

Which is probably good for all of us.
