  4. Chris Messina:

    The future of digital identity should not be determined by one company( namely, Facebook), i still believe that competition in this space is better for consumers, for startups, and for the industry. And Google still remains one of the few companies( besides Apple, perhaps) that stands a chance to take on Facebook in this arena -- but Google +, as I see it, has lost its way.

  5. Simon Hanson:

    Drummers can have the effect of two bass drums by having a pedal which is double where you only have one and the mechanism will play as if it's a double bass drum. It's similar to that in a way, i think because the drummer's not directly controlling it from his brain - although it looks like might be able to do that in the future, which has its own complications - it would for me be an add-on to a kit so I could trigger a sample or a different instrument. The basic drum kit is great. Two hands are okay and when I'm producing and there's other drummers playing I get them to play with one hand because I think drums with one hand sounds better in many ways.
