I just booked a flight to Vegas for the IP4IT conference, where I’m on a panel with Mr. Wikipedia Jimmy Wales, and the Orbitz waiting graphic popped up a talk bubble that said “Say hi to lady luck for me.” How nice! It’s little things like that which make me use Orbitz more and more, […]
Wayfaring is an interesting new site that lets you tag and create your own routes and places on Google maps, for everything from a good date night route to someone marking their favorite beer joints. (In fact I’m going to 21st Amendment later today.)
With all the fuss and bother over TypeKey, you’d think it was the end of the world. It’s being called the Patriot Act of Weblogging because it’s an over-the-top reaction to a problem. People are saying they’ll never comment on blogs that require TypeKey. I haven’t seen this much commotion over vaporware since… MT 3. […]
The quad-monitor setup is going well. None of them match each other, but it’s 62″ of total screen space. Life is good. Firefox still seems to have some issues when it’s used on a secondary monitor, but hopefully that’ll work itself out in a later release.
I’m hoping to blog this trip better than my last one, so here goes. I got through security without any troubles and began the trek to my gate which was quite literally the furthest in the airport. I got here find but my shoulder hurt a bit from my carry-on, so I was glad to […]
I’m very interested in seeing some alternative color schemes for the WordPress admin, so I thought I’d sponsor a mini-contest here. You don’t have to be a WordPress user or even have it installed to participate. The colors don’t have to match the logo or anything like that, I’m just interested in seeing easy-on-the-eyes color […]
I just tried to run Windows Update, and got a message explaining ActiveX to me and these instructions: To view and download updates for your computer, Windows Update should be listed as a Trusted Site in Internet Explorer. To add Windows Update to the trusted sites zone: On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click […]
Here at the WP meetup. So far we have: Jason Goldsmith Sibylle Schwarz Brian Calhoun Tantek Amber
For everyone in San Francisco the WordPress Meetup is tomorrow (Saturday) at 4 PM. However there is a slight misunderstanding about the location. All week I’ve been telling everyone it’s going to be at the Border’s at Union Square, when at the meetup site it’s listed as a Border’s someplace way out of town. So […]
Good with faces? Help me identify these people from the Supernova dinner in the comments to this post. Pictures can be referred to as #1, #2, etc. A lot of very interesting people were there. Please leave comments on this entry and not the pictures themselves. Thanks. 🙂
I forgot to post this before, so here it is. I’m on the Caltrain going to Mountain View for lunch, and I’m taking advantage of the much-needed downtime to listen to some music, enjoy the scenery, reply to email, and catch up on writing. Being offline has been productive, and I’m wondering if I should […]
And the weather is gorgeous! Rode the BART from the airport, and it was the most comfortable public transporation I’ve ever been on. The Muni was about the same as any other subway/train thing I’ve been on, except every third person had white iPod earphones on and a Powerbook in their lap. I’m sitting in […]
Must be performed before 1 AM, depending on your location. Go to Wendy’s. Get a combo with fries and a chocolate frostee. You’ll like this so Biggie size it. Take lid off frostee. Dip a fry in the frostee. Enjoy!
Eric talks about why he moved to WordPress. RSS import was a killer feature for him.
The infamous Eric Meyer, as you may know, powers his blog with WordPress. In the course of customizing WordPress to meet his needs we chatted quite a bit and he extended the functions he needed to extend using the 1.2 plugin format, and he is now sharing his work with the community. See his Meyerweb […]
Googlebot is up to something, but what could it be? This could be big.
Wherein I participate in the biggest blog meme I’ve seen.
I have procured a Gmail account. Now what?
Before Jon Hicks, before Dan Cederholm, before Doug Bowman, before Dave Shea, there was the original CSS garden.
