Now you can find weird flexible ones, dragon style tooth brushes that clean both sides of the mouth at the same time and tooth brushes with plastic extensions that massage your shoulders while you use them.
But isn't the conscientious usage the key here?
Yesterday I attended the GeekMeet in Stockholm. Mingling with people in between presentations by the wise redheaded Chris Heilmann, I noticed that even the geeks consider a bit overwhelming the amount of web tools that pop up every day.
Is this good or bad? I think it's like the tooth brushes. Get a fancy one or get a more classical one, but use it religiously.
One of the presentations was called Playing With The Web in which Chris advocates for reusing already built APIs and tools in web development. There are a couple of nice existing platforms to build upon out there. Using them gets even easier to make new products. And that's a good thing because it generates more options for us, the users.
But I think we're becoming sloppy in what we're doing. We're buying too many clothes and not using them, we're changing our mobile phones every other month for a newer model, even before using the one we have to the full potential and we're also just trying out new web tools without getting the best of those we already use.
Or maybe it's just me. I have to get this.
