Tech writer Alexis Madrigal joins us as our new contributor for all things digital to review Apple’s software release of iOS 7:
Of course, it’s not the first time that Apple has updated its phone software. IOS 7 is, logically, the seventh version of the software. But previous revisions to Apple’s mobile operating system nibbled around the edges of a design that they first unveiled in 2007 along with the original iPhone. IOS 7, by contrast, is a complete, post-Steve Jobs overhaul, spearheaded by the company’s head of design, Jonny Ive.
To be clear: if you’re an iPhone user, everything — your email, your calendar, your texts, your phone dialer, your photos, your notes — will look and work differently.
In reinventing its key software, the real big change — the visionary change — is that the idea of the operating system is radically new.

BRICs — Marcus Lyon:
"In 2008, a watershed was crossed and the world saw the irreversible shift from a global majority of rural dwellers to a new army of urban residents. Mass urbanisation trends predict that the world’s urban population will double in the coming 40 years. The cities of the developing world will account for 95% of that growth. These are the megacities of the BRIC economies, the urban giants of Brazil, Russia, India and China. These people-magnets draw in rural workers with the promise of higher wages and a better quality of life, but the delicate balance between expanding population and limited physical space defines the human condition of these powerhouses."

It has been a busy summer so I haven’t been on Tumblr that much. Here’s an update in the form of a photo. Last weekend, I visited a few friends up at Dartmouth College and we went hiking. What a view.

!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy this show is back.
Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.
