If only all blog comments were this smart

Charlie Stross has another insightful post which he starts with a few semi-random links, and his readers then link them together into a discussion on housing, energy, homelessness and potential messed-up futures. Really interesting stuff. And the commenters are both insightful, and courteous as all else. I can’t get five comments on some sites without ...

Was 1993 this important?

My first thought about 1993 was that it was my first year after high school, but I don’t remember it being this influential … in fact, 1994, being my first year of exposure to the Internet (or probably more 1995), seems far more important to me. But Wired, in a further effort to play up ...

More pics in my posts

Note to self: Have got to put more pics into my posts. It looks like WordPress has got its act together pic upload wise, so it really is easy! And with a new theme that I like, I will get more plugins in there too. And I don’t believe big sites care now if you ...

Surprise gifts

A few days ago I got an email from a company I’d spoken to a CeBIT the week earlier. I’d gone to the CeBIT show for a few hours to look at new stuff and recommend things to my current employers (I’ve gone to it the previous two years as well for previous jobs). It’s ...

Let’s see now …

Another tough one today. Still not getting into the writing as I’d like to, and there’s no one to blame but myself. I know that. Clear skies again fortunately, but it’s suddenly got really cold … insanely so for only April. Hate to see what it will be like in July. Then again, it might ...

Sun, football and back to work

It’s late so there isn’t much to say for now. Woke up in Nelson Bay, another really nice day, and we headed to the beach again. But the water was still dirty and it was surprisingly hot. We didn’t last more than a half hour before heading back to pack up and head home. Listened ...

Logos and musical intelligence

The job goes on nicely, and the bad weather goes on not so nicely. So some different things: A nice story today that goes into the behind the scenes details of how the unique production company logo is created for the end of every episode of Battlestar Galactica. It’s starting its 4th season in the ...

What you know and what you can explain

I find myself wanting to know more about Search Engine Optimisation. Both so I can do more at work … and so I can explain more about what I’m doing, and back it up with “pro” opinion. The impression that I’m really getting is that I not only need to do a whole lot of ...

Wii Day

Finally the family has a new game console, for the first time in eight years. And it’s my first ever Nintendo system. Finally, we have a Nintendo Wii in the house. So naturally, not much else to say here because we played Wii all night. I didn’t get home until later because I was out ...

Ready for anything

I realised today that I’m already doing so much more than I ever did at my own job with the new Penthouse gig — and it’s only been three days. Spent this afternoon working on video editing, and it was kind of unsatisfying, but should be fixed tomorrow morning. Don’t know if I’m just unfamiliar ...
