A longer commute, talk radio, a loving father turns into an angry, bitter, obsessive… brainwashed by a poisonous media. Continue reading
One of my favorite things to do is to show the developer of a function or piece of software something it does that they just weren’t expecting. I know, you’re thinking bugs, and bugs are fun too. But what I’m really talking about are cool tips and tricks that can get you out of PowerPoint jams and into really cool solutions. Continue reading
In 1981 an Italian artist, architect, and industrial designer named Luigi Serafini worked for three years crafting an alien artifact that pushed the concepts of beauty, alienation, and book craft to new dimensions. Serafini created a tome, thick and large, embellished with impenetrable glyphs and symbols that by style and repetition of forms can be nothing but a language, but one no human has ever spoken.
Why wear two watches? And why don’t they tell the same time? A bit of a puzzle of course.

No secret to anyone about my love of this book. So why is it news today? This morning Nancy Duarte announced that “the multimedia version of Resonate is now available on HTML5 and iTunes for FREE! You can read, learn, … Continue reading
Sometimes we have to put the tech, and the presenting and the other stuff geeky aside and just enjoy a glass of wine. But maybe we can combine a few of these. The latest tech in wine storage. The geeky … Continue reading
I’m a big fan of books. Not just the stories, but the book construction as well. From bindings, paper choice, typeset, typography, layout, it’s all interesting to me. Mark Z. Danielewski is most famous for House of Leaves, an inventive … Continue reading
Stunned, I have few relatively important thoughts this morning. This is the primary one. Civilized people know they do not need “a militia.” The time for that has come and gone. The retention of this false assurance is maintained by deluded … Continue reading
I signed up for Intuit’s new GoPayment card system yesterday. Thought I’d share a few thoughts. GoPayment is a way for regular folks to take credit card payments from other regular folks using your cell phone or tablet. It’s advertised … Continue reading
Update! We replaced with the same model, this time in purple. They were out of red. Frankly, the toaster market is insane with technological innovations. There are models that slowly lower your toast into the chamber, any number of digital … Continue reading
Our pretty red toaster died this week. Sunbeam Oster. It wasn’t even three years old. I know, I know, they don’t make things like they used to. But it’s just a toaster, it’s supposed to be pretty fundamentally simple. … Continue reading
Last Friday I installed a new thermostat in the house, the first one since we moved in. Now the prior thermostat was programmable, hourly and daily you could configure it to heat and cool as you like. It made a … Continue reading

Just got notified that there’s a Silverlight update for the Mac. OK, I’ll update, what’s the… Wow. The instructions are so dense with unnecessary text, and eventually tell you to first uninstall any previous version, which necessitates removing half-a-dozen files … Continue reading
Well, everything old is new again. Today the Microsoft PowerPoint Team Blog did me the honor of pointing out one of my posts from earlier this year, The Blur Trick, with an invitation to write more later. I had the … Continue reading
For a short period of time I had a small blog on Microsoft Spaces. Unfortunately Spaces will be going away. But Microsoft and WordPress worked out a deal where the archive of the old Spaces posts can be moved to … Continue reading
