Best Social Network E.V.E.R–Hands Down

This would be really funny if it weren’t such an outrageous act of government intrusion into the innocent lives of its citizenry! Check it out at: http://getprsm.com Oh, and Mark Zuckerberg, over at Facebook, wants to give everyone the internet, declaring it to be a human right? And privacy and freedom of speech* are not?! His motives are just too… Continue reading

Near Death Experience

After having a consistently horrible week last week dealing with the ongoing frustrations of non-functional technology and the lack of closure on several essential, never-ending, home projects that have become non-productive time pits, I decided that at least half of today would be dedicated to being nice to Tim. My stress level last week was just outrageously through the roof.… Continue reading

Two [click, click] in One!

So I’ve gone crazy with Instragr.am, sending enhanced pictures from my iPhone like a mad man.  Now I’ve discovered Viddy, which basically does the same thing for video, although it has some limitation since it’s a new service.  (The Facebook, YouTube and Twitter uploads failed.  I had to upload it to YouTube through the iPhone’s Photos app.)  But I suspect… Continue reading

To Facebook Or Not To Facebook

That is a common question I get.  I recently read another article that sums up well why I do NOT use Facebook. 1.  I think the founder, Mark Zuckerberg, is a jerk.  According to the article in Wired, he “once joked dismissively about the ‘dumb fucks’ who ‘trust me’.”  I don’t trust the self-posessed, immature, opportunist.  He doesn’t have the… Continue reading

My Fitbit

I’m sure you noticed that my Fitbit tweets stopped for a while.  I’m confident of your concern about my exercise level.  Therefore, I update you: My original Fitbit died.  It would just turn itself off at random times.  Fitbit was good enough to replace it with no questions asked!  So now, I have a new one.  The regular (daily) updates… Continue reading

Fitbit Activity Report

Image via CrunchBase Well, despite the fact that I’ve had a horrible sinus infection/laryngitis this week, I have been wearing my Fitbit ever since I first got it. The results, even with being sick, are interesting.  I’ve noticed how unbelievably my stats dive when I spend a day working at the computer.  This must change!  And being sick has an… Continue reading

Naive, If Not Blatantly Dishonest

I have been asked numerous times why I do not have a Facebook page.  Originally, I had three main reasons: I thought Facebook would be another digital fad like AOL, MySpace, etc.  It would go away—and indeed probably will in time .  Something else would replace it.  Would I then have to jump on that social tool-du-jour? I have two… Continue reading

Imagine My Delight: The Planets Align Again!

Yesterday was an interesting day for me—most days are, actually. But the planets seemed to be especially aligned, or maybe yesterday was a “rip, a hole in the time/space continuum” that “take us thru the event horizon.” * 1. I got an email invitation to connect with another Tim Tyson on a social network site. What was particularly interesting is… Continue reading
