images and words

These are interesting times... I just found out that the next revision of our internet tablet will have WiMAX-support. Rest assured - modest will support that as well.

Also, recently I have been studying the (very much recommended!) work of Edward Tufte, on the visualization of data, and how modern technology is great at obfuscating real meaning behind snappy graphs. Still people are trying to generate meaningful (or sometimes just pretty) pictures out of masses of data. One of the masses of data being email messages. Check these great post on FlowingData which show many different visualization of email data. For a more practical example, look at MailTrends, which analyzes the emails in your Gmail account for your.

et tu, emacs?

I was very happy to see prebuild Emacs packages for Maemo. I wonder if my instructions are still valid, especially regarding key-bindings on the N810. Anyway, I'd be interested in the next steps in integration Emacs with the platform. I'd like to connect the HW-zoom buttons to zooming the fonts in Emacs, and maybe marry the emacs-server setup with the application menu -- ie., don't use new emacs instances for new files, but instead use new buffers in the existing instance. Now all I need is a little time.
