Letter from the editor – 50.23

To the amazing ML/LD community,


I’m getting more and more curious about the comeback of “dumbphones” and their ability to help people curb their tech addictions.

There is an old story (urban legend) about the Nokia product team getting drilled (fired?) and the internal memo “We are standing on a burning platform” as IOS and ANDROID smartphones started taking over in 2011.

Maybe all they had to tell the boss was to wait it out a decade :-  )
