A few pundits have been remarking that part of the story behind the Apple v Feds is that Apple won’t let Super Apps onto their phone like they do in China.

Putting aside the obvious “well that’s good then”, I am bound to ask why Apple controlling all my life and having to work out how to keep me there is any worse than some dubious super app seeking to do the same, and whatever phone I use - there it is. Yes - convenient - but is that what we want?

At the beginning of the year I had grand plans for this series. A daily long-form post about something that was rattling my brain that day. And then life. For a while, I was even just dropping markers - to revisit. I came to realise that part of the problem was the complexity of the structure for each post - so that went away. Simplicity really is rather nice. As I write on 240413, I am now going back and filling in the gaps. PLUS - unless something strikes me immediately, I will not classify until the end of the day and go back to move one of the posts of the day into the 366. Also - if you are wondering how I have update the words at the bottom of over 100 posts at a stroke, well - THANK YOU Andy Sylvester and his Glossary plugin.
