    Tim O’Reilly Web 2.0 Meme Map

    For those who want it in pictures, Tim O’Reilly’s posted a map of all the memes that make up Web 2.0. Alex Barnett goes one step further and annotates it with links.

  • Microsoft, Google & Cross Dressing

    Whew! Take a week off and all hell breaks loose. First the rumored Google Secure WiFi service looks to be a reality. Danny Sullivan does the rundown of motives but still wonders why Google would go to such extremes to maintain an infrastructure so far outside of their core expertise when they already have so […]

    Video Games Live with Full Orchestra

    Advertised in the entertainment section of my paper as, “A groundbreaking live event celebrating the music of video games,” comes Video Games Live, a full orchestra performance of the music of Halo, Zelda, Warcraft and others. Partially backed by Clear Channel, the performance will feature, “music from the world’s most popular video games performed by […]

  • The Walk to School

    Over on the work blog I’ve posted about switching jobs to work at Yahoo. I’ll be starting next week so I’m spending this week clearing the decks and getting ready. Tyler’s bummed because I will not be able to walk him to school anymore and it’s been the time of day when we get to […]

  • SF Fisherman Survive 8 Hours in Icy Waters

  • The New Yorker on DVD-ROM

    Every issue of The New Yorker since 1925 is now available on DVD-ROM for $100 from thenewyorkerstore.com. Don’t you wish they would put all these articles online via Yahoo Subscriptions or Factiva?

  • The Baseball Collector

    Six Apart has a partnership with Major League Baseball to enable their fans to keep blogs. It’s been an amazing glimpse into America’s #1 obsession to see how many different perspectives people have on the sport. Every now and then I check back to see what’s new and today see that they’re featuring a blog […]

  • The Ultimate Disclaimer

    I read & review quite quite a few legal agreements in this job. If you do too, then you’d appreciate The Standard Catchall Universal Disclaimer Notice. The fine print includes such nuggets as: ADVISORY: There is an extremely small but nonzero chance that, through a process known as “tunneling,” this product may spontaneously disappear from […]

  • Sack Artist

    Julia has taken to wearing an eyeshade when she goes to sleep at night. We have a couple of them from trips taken on Virgin Air. This one says “cat nap”
