Site relaunch coming soon

Hi everyone. It turns out that this will be more than a site redesign, it will be a whole new type of site. It won’t be run with WordPress, it’ll be run with Drupal. That will give you an idea of the scope of the changes that are going on. Watch here for more details. […]

Fail day

Fail day

Everyone has heard the saying that sometimes, everything comes together for the greater good. The same can be said of the reverse. The very fabric of what holds your technology together can suddenly de-rez and leave you with doorstops. This isn’t a post about how I had a bad day as much as it is […]

Chaotic Nerdy #1 – “Bunny Suit”

Chaotic Nerdy #1 – “Bunny Suit”

| April 29, 2009 | 0 Comments

(special thanks to Renata for suggesting a fix for the Bunny Dwarf) The first thing I can remember wanting to do growing up was draw. I guess every kid did, we all had our box of crayons, but I was different. I didn’t have a box of 8, I had a box of 64 with a […]

We’re living in wonderful times

We live in amazing times. Even though the internet has been around for over 20 years, this is the first time in history we’ve seen people have the ability to not only communicate globally, but to write and have their voice heard without having to go through the anguish of being published. Traditionally, you had […]

Has Twitter changed how we blog?

Has Twitter changed how we blog?

In the last few months since I started using Twitter, I found that if I wanted to throw an idea out to the ‘net, I could do so in 140 characters or less and get feedback from other people directly. This was a satisfying way of having a small, isolated conversation about a particular topic […]

Second Skin trailer is up

Second Skin trailer is up

Back in March of 2007, Ren and I were filmed for the documentary “Second Skin”. It’s been along time, but the guys at Pure West Docs finally got the trailer together. It looks better than I expected it to, and I can’t wait to see it. It follows the lives of seven gamers, and how […]

A few months ago I was working on a blog post about data security which I never got around to finishing. This issue with Robert Scoble rekindled that. I’ll sum it up for those of you that don’t know: Robert was using a Facebook app to scrape data from Facebook so that he can use […]

What I learned in 2007

What I learned in 2007

| January 3, 2008 | 0 Comments

I have to say, 2007 was a crappy year for me. Here’s a list of things I learned. 1) Family > everything. 2) Never go into business with someone you’ve known for less than three months. That’ll give you enough time to see the happy/sad/sober/drunk/depressed side of them, and see how they treat you. Usually, […]

On October 5, I turn 40. In some ways, I really don’t care, but it is an important day and I wanted to spend it doing something special. Sure, the usual thing is to go to Vegas or Atlantic City or something, but then you have to bring people and most people don’t want to […]

A day at the Faire

A day at the Faire

Yesterday we all went to the New York Renaissance Faire. Back in college I used to go there every day it was opened. Last year was my first time there since around 1989. As always it was a lot of fun. I always love seeing people in costume, but what’s funny is when you catch […]
