I recently read a frightening 2008 post by David Pogue about the breakdown of homemade DVDs. This inspired me to back up my old DVDs of my dog to my computer (now that hard drives are so much bigger than they used to be), which led me to install HandBrake. The Handbrake web site includes this gem:
“The Law of Software Development and Envelopment at MIT:
Every program in development at MIT expands until it can read mail.”
I thought of that when I heard that Facebook is launching a (beyond) email service.
(The side benefit of this project is that now I get to watch videos of my dog sleeping whenever I want to.)
