I was lucky enough to speak to Horace Dediu today at Swipe Conference. We discuss the rise and fall of the PC, and some of the parallels that can be drawn from the rise of mobile platforms today. Which mobile platforms are destined to succeed, and who will fade away? And why can’t some analysts count the iPad as a PC replacement? Horace also discusses the amazing iPad app he used today in his presentation.

Webstock 2011 opened with an excellent workshop by the inimitable Merlin Mann, entitled: What’s (Maybe, Kinda, Sorta) Next for You? Steps Toward Futureproofing Your Passion.
Merlin was kind enough to sit down with me after his presentation to chat about his many podcasts, Getting Things Done, Productivity MacGuffins, insanely good Mac software and Paul Hogan.
I apologise for the rambling nature of this podcast. I was incredibly star struck by Merlin and his generosity of time and spirit caught me a little off guard. But it’s a wonderful experience to meet one of your idols and find out they’re as good a person as you’ve always hoped they’d be.
