The wide-ranging effect of technology on our lives is widely discussed. Porn and shopping tend to dominate, but there are things that astound me everyday that don't include Amazon or DP.

Today it's the New York Times' fight to get the city records of 9/11 published. A good dose of old-school broadsheet journalism mixed with the internet gets us to this.

It's absolutely riveting. Only a few years ago it would have meant a trip to a NYC library or a big fat hardback, but here I am reading it on my telephone.

This isn'’t a new or indeed original thought, but still makes me think we live in a far more interesting world than it can frequently feel like.

So there.
