In part two of my TPD “Road Trip” series I share a few reactions to some discussion that’s been happening in the forums about the new media opportunities and dangers presented by the app-based approach to computing heralded by tablet computers like the iPad.

Filed under Podcasts, Thunder Punch Daily

Today I leap on some thoughts that occur to me as I head in to Kids Read Comics 2010 and the ongoing convention season.
