Recommended Reading – 10th April 2010

A few things to read over your Saturday morning coffee (or a coffee at another time. Or a different drink. You get the idea)

Chris Heathcote has transcribed a lovely little piece about Londoners queuing, originally written in 1951

Graeme Wood has a thought-provoking piece on artificial scarcity, with regard to both music and the Digital Economy Bill

Scott Anthony uses the example of the MLB At-Bat application to highlight why releasing “good enough” stuff early is the best strategy

The iPad launch has led to a lot of blog commentary. Two of the better ones are Seth Godin’s take on why its launch was successful (I’d say that while the launch was successful, the product at an overall level may still not be) and Dave Winer questioning whether it can be more than just a toy.

And for those that want to exercise their brains, Stowe Boyd outlines his concept of new spatialism with regard to social structures and Tim O’Reilly has a detailed look at the state of internet operating systems and how the move to cloud computing is affecting them.
