My New Super-Secret Blog

I realized some time ago that there are a lot of things that I needed to write down, and that I wasn’t doing it. I wasn’t doing it mostly because they were things that I didn’t necessarily want my whole Twitter feed reading. So, I started a new blog and Twitter feed that will probably […]

Still Waiting for Video on the Web to Work

It is 2010 and video on the web is in a sorry state. – It is choppy on all OS X web browsers, no matter the video source. It is better on Chrome and Safari, worse on Firefox, but definitely choppy on all three. – It doesn’t work on the iPhone. – There is too […]

CNN Pipeline

CNN.com has launched a new service called CNN Pipeline. I have waited a long time for something like this. What a beautiful concept. On-demand, low-cost, commercial-free, online news. Four simultaneous video streams, three of which are unedited. It is $25 for a whole year. I will be signing up for this when I get home, […]

Wikipedia decision making

Today, it was announced that Wikipedia is restricting article creation to registered users only. Many might choose to argue one position or the other on this issue. I happen to not feel strongly either way. However, I find the process by which it was decided to be questionable. A week after being contacted by John […]

Top Websites

Here is a list of websites that I find to be best for these basic purposes. New tools are constantly coming out that are later and greater than what is currently out, so this is simply a current snapshot. weather National Weather Service maps/directions Google Maps reference Wikipedia news Google News all-in-one homepage Google Personalized […]
