Opinion / Analysis

From knowledge graphs to knowledge portals

Whether you’re contemplating, planning, implementing, or looking to better utilize either of these, you should read Kurt Cagle’s thought-provoking post. (7 min).

Stable Diffusion is a really big deal

Stable diffusion was released a couple of weeks ago and has generated a lot of excitement as an alternative to DALL·E and other image generation tools. The main reasons for the enthusiasm are that it is completely open source, you can run it on a PC, and you can run it on a cloud for just a few dollars a month without being technical. Simon Willison has more details. (5 min).

Apple AR glasses: a next big thing?

Apple Augmented Reality (AR) glasses are a good candidate to be Apple’s ‘next big thing’. But it doesn’t seem likely that we’ll learn much more about them at tomorrow’s Apple event. Jean-Louis Gassée is skeptical they’ll be coming anytime soon and explains why. (5 min).

Brave integration deepens support for Unstoppable Domains

Brave announced that more than 2 million Unstoppable domains can now be used to display decentralized websites in Brave, a secure and privacy-centric browser that allows you to explore the Internet without being tracked. Through the Unstoppable Domains integration with Brave, creators can build decentralized content with a domain that they fully own and control – or explore the nearly 30,000 websites and counting that have been created using an Unstoppable domain. Brave integration goes beyond .crypto to include more top-level domains such as .nft, .x, .wallet, .bitcoin, .blockchain, and .dao.

Through the Brave integration with Unstoppable Domains, domains like Sandy.nft and Brad.crypto function just like normal Web2 addresses, but are hosted on the InterPlanetary File System (IFPS), a decentralized, peer-to-peer network. Brave offers a browser with native support for IPFS—meaning you don’t need to take any additional steps, or download any additional software, to access decentralized sites. Navigating to an IPFS URL is as simple as clicking a link. Native support for IPFS is a key piece of infrastructure for decentralized websites where both the domain and Web content are owned entirely by the user and distributed across a network of nodes.
