  • Fake Steve Jobs is Unmasked

    Turns out Forbes columnist, Daniel Lyons, was the one behind Fake Steve Jobs’ blog. Brilliant timing too (heh), his satirical novel written in the voice of Mr. Jobs is due to hit the shelves in October.

  • The Journey Begins – Consolidating multiple blogs to WordPress

    Over the years I have maintained blogs on a number of different platforms. I started in 2003 with Blogger moving later to TypePad and finally to Movable Type hosted on Yahoo Small Business.

  • We’re the Nicholsons

    Six Apart featured a few of our Flickr photos on their new microsite promoting how blogs can be used for a holidays. I like what they wrote about Julia’s photo under “Melanie’s Music Recital.”

  • Blogs by Mail

Slate (now owned by the Washington Post Company) was Microsoft’s last big effort at content creation and for that effort they […]
