  • Guess The Google

    Here’s a bit of distraction for you. This site will pull together a set of images from a Google Image search and ask you to guess the keyword that generated the results. It’s addictive. Guess-the-Google

  • University of Minnesota upgrades to MT 3.16

    University of Minnesota’s UThink installation is one of the largest, (if not the largest) Movable Type installations in the academic world. Shane Nackerud, the administrator of their 1,200 blog network, has done yeoman’s work wrassling an earlier version of Movable Type (2.x) to fit his needs and written a number of scripts to help him […]

  • Online Media Meet Market

    Most writers view advertising as a necessary evil. Working for a weblog software company which makes the tools that many writers are using, I’m always on the lookout for an interactive agency that "gets it" and can provide a bridge for the considerable financial resources of its clients to make its way to my customers’ […]

  • Mary Meeker on Online Advertising

    Yesterday I visited the Ad-Tech show here in San Francisco to catch the last 20 minutes of Mary Meeker’s keynote and visit the exhibition hall. Let me first say that Mary’s presentation was fascinating but left me winded. We blew past 50 slides dense with stats and tidbits that raised an eyebrow when I first […]

  • I am You as You are Me

    Matthew Haughey says all this fuss over the Mainstream Media is meaningless when so many bloggers are now on TV and magazine publishers are now blogging. We are all the media and the line that defines mainstream has gotten so fuzzy as to be meaningless. Amen to that brother.

  • She Passed!

    Izumi’s had a bit of a struggle with getting her California Driver’s License and I don’t blame her.

While multiple choice, many of the possible answers are written in a twisted grammatical form […]

As of 2005, the Internet has replaced the desktop PC as the primary platform for APIs. Unlike Microsoft and the desktop, however, nobody […]

  • Blogs on the cover of BusinessWeek

    It’s going to be another busy week – BusinessWeek has a lengthy cover story on why companies need to pay attention to blogs. Go ahead and bellyache about blogs. But you cannot afford to close your eyes to them, because they’re simply the most explosive outbreak in the information world since the Internet itself. And […]

  • Artwork

    There is a difference in each of our kids’ artwork. Julia, the younger one, draws with determination to express an emotion. The drawing on the left is Julia’s and although she says that it’s a dragon, it bears a striking resemblence to her mother. Tyler is older and is much more detailed in his drawings. […]

  • The King of San Francisco

    As we were driving through the city Tyler asked who lived in the majestic building that is known as the City Hall. I said that the Mayor of San Francisco worked there but he didn’t know that term, “Mayor.” I said that the Mayor was someone who ran the city. “Oh, so the king of […]
