  • Bloggers & the Law

    Those looking for a little legal advice on corporate blogging would do well to read Ephraim Schwartz’s column in last week’s InfoWorld magazine. He’s done some of the footwork and consulted with several attorneys and summarized his findings. Much of what he says map to the guidelines that have been published by others but it’s […]

  • The very first Mommy

    A tough questions from the weekend from our little inquisiter, Tyler: Who was the first mommy? With all the debate around intelligent design it wouldn’t be fair to just point to a picture of a monkey and leave it at that. I need to think about this, gather all sides of the debate and present […]

  • Fresno Bee does RSS

    Mark Thompson over at the Fresno Bee is turning on the paper’s online readers to the wonder and glory of RSS with a nice little how-to piece on Beehive, the site’s blog. A couple of people in the past few weeks have told me to check out what the Bee is up to and I’m […]

  • QR Code shortcuts text entry

    This is  old news for those of you who have been to Japan. Anyone that’s used UPS or Fedex has seen these newfangled barcodes (QR code stands for "quick read") that allow them to be scanned from any direction. There is a lot of information that you can pack into these codes which can hold […]

  • Spring Skiing

    I’m catching up on my backlog of photos here but a two weekends back we headed up to Tahoe to catch the last of the snow with our neighbors who have an enormous cabin up near Donner Lake. Poor Julia couldn’t ski because the rental place didn’t have boots small enough for her but she […]

  • O-Hashi

    It’s been said that a girls fine motor skills advance more quickly than boys and much to Tyler’s frustration, he’s seeing that play out each evening at the dinner table. Julia has mastered the chopsticks to the point where she can pick up individual peas while her older brother is left to shoveling them into […]

  • Game On!

    Game On!

    Tyler’s T-Ball league teams are all named after real Major League teams. Tyler plays for the Washington Nationals who were most recently the Montreal Expos. Last weekend we all went to the beautiful SBC Park to see the real Washington Nationals play the San Francisco Giants. It was pouring down rain on our way in […]

  • Department of Defense can’t keep secrets

    The Pentagon recently posted a heavily censored document concerning the accidental shooting of Italian intelligence agent, Nicola Calipari, on their website but forgot that blocked out text in digital format isn’t really blocked out. You can find links to the source materials at Memory Hole but the real news is that the Department of Defense […]

  • Walter Cronkite blogs the way it is

    I smile when I read Walter Cronkite’s first post on Arianna Huffington’s new group blog. I grew up with Uncle Walt rounding out the evening’s news and it’s great to see him back again and rolling up his sleeves to work on his blog.

  • Six Apart is Hiring
