While browsing through Larry’s photos, I stumbled across one that had a Zappos shotglass in it. I asked Larry where he got it from, and he told me it was a giveaway at SXSW he had picked up. So, I did the most logical thing and sent Zappos CEO, Tony Hsieh (@zappos) a tweet inquiring… Continue reading A gift from Zappos
Today Mozilla officially released Firefox 3. If you haven’t grabbed it yet, what are you waiting for? These are some of the extensions that I now use: AnyColor – Currently available for the Windows version of Firefox 3 only, this add-on lets you shift the color/appearance of your current theme on the fly. It works… Continue reading Firefox 3 add-ons I can’t live without.
I disabled Disqus commenting on my site. As it stands now, it just doesn’t integrate fully enough into WordPress for me to be happy with it. I’ll see if I can migrate the handful of comments over to be on my site within the next day or so. I think Disqus has a lot of… Continue reading Disqus
Derek Powazek’s article “It’s 2008. I can’t believe we haven’t figured this out.” spoke loudly to me. I’m tired of content scrapers. I’ve had articles stolen, simply because they covered popular subjects I’m still offering full text in my feed, but for Derek, that’s no longer an option. The problem with splogs and spam in… Continue reading Scraped

I’m not sure how it’s going to work out, so consider this an experiment for now. The idea behind Disqus is that commenting becomes more interactive for readers of this site and… Continue reading Disqus integration

As I develop this iteration out further, the reason I added the sidebar will be more apparent. I have done no… Continue reading Minor Tweaks
Today’s almost over, but since I was asked about it… Today (April 9th) is CSS Naked Day. This is the second year I’ve participated. To know more about why styles are disabled on this website visit the Annual CSS Naked Day website for more information. (I’d write more… but I’m on vacation right now.)
Let the Viddler lovefest continue, I say! I’ve just incorporated Viddler video comments into my site, so if you’d like to respond visually instead of typing out a response, feel free. (Or you can do both.)
My son trips me out sometimes. Here he can be found “singing” along with “Flow Rida”. As a side note, this is my first time uploading something to Viddler. It’s a great service that’s really innovative! when it comes to video tagging, commenting, and more.
A recent editorial in the latest issue of the American Journal of Psychiatry entitled “Issues for DSM-V: Internet Addiction” posits that Internet Addiction should be treated as a Mental Disorder. I’m inclined to agree. Internet addiction appears to be a common disorder that merits inclusion in DSM-V. Conceptually, the diagnosis is a compulsive-impulsive spectrum disorder… Continue reading Internet Addiction
