This oldie but goodie was from July 9, 2013 by yours truly here:
While the discussion of free software is often met with skepticism, Apple is in a great position to set fire to the assumptions regarding the company’s focus. If they are truly focused on hardware differentiation, they need more free and exclusive software that other companies can’t match. With the iWork applications moving to iCloud and the forthcoming Mavericks release, Apple could be poised to set its software free.

Did the Internet community peak at bookmarks? Asked in a different and perhaps more complete way: just as technologies like RSS and email in their purest forms are hard to beat even as technology marches forward, what better technology exists to keep track of information on the ever-expanding Internet than bookmarks? Taken a step further, what better way to share the bookmarked information than a site of your own? As such, I‘ve been reading, which is why I write now.
Working in and having a passion for libraries, I am struck by the fact that the way bookmarks work in the physical world is not directly analogous to bookmarks in the digital world. Bookmarks in the digital world are instead like dog-eared pages or highlighted passages; if you think of the Internet as a single tome, that is. In any case, anything that moves you to deface a book should probably be shared or become immortalized in some other way than just a reference for a future version of yourself.
