Forget two-point-oh, the web is turning two-oh (that’s twenty) in just over a month. Please join the celebration.
So what is it I do anyway? Lots of different things. For example: Today I’m leading a faculty workshop on Firefox 3.5, so here’s a mix of awesome cyber-geeky pop tunes. And here’s sneak peek at the slideshow I’ll be using. (I’m still working on this so it may be a little unfinished in places.) [...]
I’ve been playing around with a relatively new music-sharing website called 8tracks. It allows you to create and share playlists legally. Here’s a silly little playlist I uploaded this morning: Using their nifty new Mac app I was able to upload this playlist directly from iTunes. It contains eight songs — one for each day [...]
Something tells me this list shouldn’t be posted in the clear.

Only this time, I notice a different blurb: Sunsweet Dried Plums are so nutritious, people send us amazing testimonials! Read [...]
Reading the promotional text on the back of my Sunsweet Gold Label Cherry Essence Dried Plums led me to the Nutrition Density Index. Basically it’s just a big image which looks a lot like the back of the fruit package which led me there in the first place. No new information. It’s one of the [...]
The shrook.com website has been down since July 4th and it’s really chapping my ass. See, my favorite news aggregator, Shrook, uses shrook.com for distributed checking of all the sites I read. Distibuted checking is cool; it appeals to my notions of a good cyber-ecology. Sure, I could run Shrook without using shrook.com, but that [...]
