Off to a Good Start? January 13, 2007 – 9:47 a.m. – Permalink

The first two weeks of the year have already occurred, and I’d like to bring your attentions to several events that have influenced the Web recently. But as you read these, I ask you: Are we off to a good start? Or are we simply going to collapse on our faces and provide the ultimate catalyst for the Web’s demise?

A Trivial Lawsuit?

There is a lot of hype about Apple’s new iPhone and all the other cool things it’s supposed to be releasing soon. Jørgen offered some predictions before the Macworld conventions, and apparently he was left speechless afterward. But to get to the point: Cisco Systems seemingly had a trademark on the name iPhone, and they sued Apple for it.

It’s unfounded and I really don’t see how it matters that much to Cisco that they maintain their grasp on this intellectual property. The ultimate conclusion: Apple chose to rename their cell phone the Apple Phone. Ugh.

La Marche de L’Empereur

An ad for the film March of the Penguins. ’Tis golden.

The re(print)

Seraphic Zephyr hosts an event called (re)print every year (well, it wasn’t called that last year). Every February, some of the finest bloggers in the Colorado Springs region will contribute four articles, constituting a quartet of expository excellence. You can look at last year’s if you want. Several of those people will be submitting again this year.

Next entry will be about a content management system Brian’s working on.
