  • The finger plus camera equals douchebaggery.

    This morning I came across this picture of Francisco Dao (founder of StrategyandPerformance.com), at the TechCrunch August Capital Party, giving the finger to the camera. There used to be a time when I found this to be funny. I used to do it myself a lot. I guess it was a comical way to show […]

  • GE Calls For More Exports from the US

    On the way to work this Friday morning I was listening to NPR. They broadcasted an interview conducted by host Renee Montagne with General Electric’s CEO Jeffrey Immelt. Mr. Immelt spoke at an economic forum in Montreal earlier in June. He is asking for the United States to increase its exports, especially in areas where […]

  • XBox 360 no video, only audio

    Over the weekend I had some lack of video from my XBox360. Nothing that some heat couldn’t fix. Apparently most problems with the Xbox360 are fixed by that which kills PCs – heat. I have an XBox360, which is one of those that was born with bugs and “genetic” issue – meaning an early version […]

  • What is the point behind a URL shortening service? Why are there so many?

    What is the point behind a URL shortening service? In essence, why is everyone using them and why are there so many?

    The following quote is from my desktop Dads calendar, given to me by my wife: A Dad Moment Ricky held his one-year-old daughter Emily in his lap. She was jabbering in baby talk as she flipped the pages of a picture book. Nearby, Ricky’s five-year-old son Tim said, “Dad, make her read it in English […]

  • Web design and standards. Key word standards!!

    I am working on a new project with my brother and his publishing company. One of my tasks is to set up a new site for his company. One thing I am really, and I mean really, good is modifying things. Be they digital or physical, I can take something and turn it into something […]

  • Friendfeed and Twitter – is it time for an intervention?

    I have decided to write this post sort of as an echo of Michael Arrington’s call for an intervention with Robert Scoble’s addiction to Freindfeed and Twitter, who has spend more than 2600 hours interacting with those services. I am rounding up from Michael’s post, because Robert states that he spend at least 7 hours […]
