  • Blog Post: Death by Email

    Ever feel like you just can't get on top of this? It's startling to think that I have over 1 GB of work-related email now. That is, of course, only one of my six or so various email accounts. How many messages do you receive per day? How many do you process per day? How many do you delete per day? How...
  • Blog Post: Watch a developer evangelist multitask

    At CommunityNext in Hollywood (a dimly lit bar on a Saturday morning, wierd), networking, listening to Scoble now, working on the demos for the presentation shown below for Monday, twittering, texting, IMing, debugging WCF, talking with Heather about DigiGirlz Camp, talking about Twiistup4 , consuming...
  • Blog Post: Sore arms, but not from coding

    rather from the last of my vaccinations . 8 in total, I am supposedly ready to go anywhere in the world for 10 years now. The big question this year is whether I'll have time to go anywhere. It had been my plan to return to Lusaka, Zambia to do in-country work for the SmartCare project (I do work remotely...
  • Blog Post: FriendFeed - ok, I give up

    I simply can NOT keep up with all the social networking 'stuff' out there. Now, there's this 'friendfeed' thingee. What do you think - should I do it? Now really, do you actually know what all of those little icons that you can 'hook together' really do? Maybe I'm just 'socially fatigued', but... FriendFeed...
  • Blog Post: Why Data Mining Matters

    When I tell people that I am writing a second book on data warehousing, business intelligence, OLAP cubes and/or Data Mining, I generally get the same response, "Huh, wow, that's deep stuff". Well, yes it is, but I don't have any formal training in math and I can 'get it', so can you. Really - even stuff...
  • Blog Post: Is Facebook over?

    Is it just me, or are you bored with Facebook already? It started off as a curiosity, then evolved into a kind of fun and amusing site, now, for me, at least, it's bordering on the dull. I notice that when I do send messages or posts, my friends tend to respond quickly. This indicates to me that we are...
  • Blog Post: I don't do snow

    Nah, not for me - you see, I got quite enough of it, growing up in Fargo, ND. For those of you who've never experienced a North Dakota winter - here's a view of the 'front yard' of my house one January when I was about 9 years old. I would be the one on the right. Southern California 'weather' suits...
  • Blog Post: It's lonelygirl15's world, isn't it?

    It's lonelygirl15's world, isn't it? Maybe not yet (at least for me) After spending a day at the New Media and Podcast Expo , I am thinking that the 'next Web' is all about micro-content. Well, that and oddly-colored hair if the attendees are actually influential. Viral video presenters on a panel with...
  • Blog Post: It's 4, not 3

    Well, for the first time ever (in over a year of frequent air travel), I had the bad luck to get the picky security lady. Oh, you know the one - she reads the size label on each of your toiletries and delights in telling you which ones are not allowed "That's a four ounce container, nothing over three...
