Oh, The Thrill of It All!

You know how it goes: Small things break, get messed up, or otherwise need a bit of attention. But they aren’t that important in the moment. You think, “I’ll fix it when I get around to it.” Well, over the past year or two or three, little things on my blog, small yet annoying things, have broken and needed a… Continue reading

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

The Latest Beauty Treatment

I came across this on Twitter. It would be hysterical if it were not true, and I’m just as guilty of this as anyone else. Almost nothing that we see in photography and videography is actually true to life. For better or worse, just about everything is “enhanced.” Fotoshop by Adobé from Jesse Rosten on Vimeo. This commercial isn’t real,… Continue reading

Five Upgrades for Tim

@Twitter has refreshed the user experience at twitter.com, adding functionality I love and use on my iOS Twitter clients. Nicely done. You do follow me on Twitter, right? My link is in the footer of every page here at tt.us. @WordPress has just officially released WP 3.1. The new version seems to have a few nice additions and several under… Continue reading

Can’t I Change My Mind?

I know I’ve sworn for decades (ok, at least in internet years) that I would never have a Facebook account.  I blogged about it.  I’ve given good reason for why I would never do it.  But, well… Damn! I’m using it as a tool to keep in touch with people I would otherwise never have the opportunity to keep up… Continue reading

Traumatized!

On Saturday, October 23, 2010, I walked nearly 18,000 steps!!  Yes.  Yes, indeed!  I walked all over Atlanta! Tragically, since I didn’t travel with my computer, just my iPad, my Fitbit didn’t report this on Twitter! I was traumatized by the fact that this enormous record (for me anyway) went unknown, uncelebrated, without the ceremonial distinctions it truly deserved!!! But… 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

Nicholas Carr on Tweets

Nicholas Carr’s writing over at Rough Type often makes me think. He recently posted “Does My Tweet Look Fat?” I laughed. I’ve grappled with Twitter for some time now. Yet I still don’t know what I think of it. I have no interest in knowing “What are [most people on this planet] doing?” at any particular moment in time. Most… Continue reading
