    In a Fast Company article about Boing Boing (I haven't read the whole article yet but this jumped out at me and I really need to write about this): "It isn't that Pescovitz doesn't understand what the blog business has become; he just figures that...

    Man, I hate medical metaphors. So I apologize for my pseudo-medical blog post title. And I ask Daniel Pink to stop using "sclerosis" unless he decides to get an MD (though I should say that I otherwise find him a very interesting writer). This article...

    People are seriously wigging out here about some weather. Monday it snowed; a couple inches, now deemed a "storm"...I even saw "blizzard". Ach. I contend that everyone who insists on driving on a "snowy" day do ten years of snow driving before they...

    Twitter on my TV is much more interesting than the Twitter telling me what you had for lunch

    I'm generally a little disintersted in technology when it has a vague reason for existing. LinkedIn was something I couldn't see being important to users because connecting with people they didn't know seemed like an anonymous popularity contest. And...

    Trapeze progress

    Yes, there is some progress. Not the greatest video quality because the actual catch was real solid, but anyway, here it is...

    Now this is where you have to get out of the binary thinking in your head

    Computer Engineer Barbie is making me 1) love the intention and 2) hate the medium. But I 1) love that the kids are excited and am 2) throwing up a little bit. And also 1) this is not the 1950s and 2) can we stop idealizing what it means to be a woman...

    Many Annoyed by Bad Cell Phone Etiquette

    • 1 Comments
    As opposed to that good cell phone etiquette that delights. Oh jeez. OK, it's really just the title that is bad (just sayin since I have been a little critical in this category lately), because this study looked at what behavior people actually participate...

    when picking a college major, I had indulged my right brain more than my father. Because I could totally be working here: This jealousy brought to you by FastCompany. Yeahawesomethanks. Oh, and speaking of design, someone at FC again (again!...

    This survey brought to you by Twitter

    • 1 Comments
    Sometimes I think the Interwebz are dumb. Or suveys are total BS. Someone is jumping to a causality conclusion when perhaps a little commons sense could be employed. Like maybe comparing the Twitter usage to other media, online and otherwise, than...

    SAP apologizes to Oracle? There's no crying in baseball and there's no apologizing in court.

    Sometimes a salary bump is about something else

    • 9 Comments
    You'd have to be living under a rock to not know about the Google salary bump reported this week : Google increases employees salaries by 10% with some other stuff thrown in. Sweet. It's not an entirely stupid move on Google's part because...wow, the...

    Tech Titans Ridiculous Homes

    • 0 Comments
    Oops. Did I just write that on my blog? I look at the homes of the top ten tech titans (by someone's standards) and I really wonder at what point "enough" transitions "into way over the top." OK, there are some steps in-between, but still. So, I will...

    Ralph Nader and Full Body Scanners

    When I first read about this , I was thinking, well asking actually; "when can America get over its fear of nudity?" You know, if everyone stops making a big deal about it, then we could all just relax, for crying out loud. I get the concern about...

    Microsoft opening certification training center in Baghdad

    OK, now *this* is interesting . This kind of investment is a little different than I had envisioned when I thought of getting Iraq back on its feet. But it makes sense if... 1) There are people that are interested in technology but lack resources to...

    Speaking of "do I fit into your target market?": Facebook Deals

    • 0 Comments
    I'm a Groupon user and a FourSquare critic. I like deals, and as long as I can convince myself NOT to buy things I won't use on Groupon, it's something that I will continue to be interested in. FourSquare is less interesting to me. And by less interesting...

    This is the part where I decide if I can be a "casual gamer"

    Kinect launched today, well this morning, at midnight . Hmm, I am a little confused if midnight is technically today or yesterday. Can it be both? I have never really seen myself as a "gamer". My exposure to video games, at least in the last decade...

    Can Google Cause a Re-count?

    • 0 Comments
    This is a sucky, though interesting, problem. Google sends thousands (how many thousands? Dunno) to the wrong polling places. OK, Google is a company, not a political entity (well, not as it's sole purpose for existing). But this does raise a question...
