It’s quite funny: Old Rowan Atkinson Shakespeare sketch still makes me happy

March 24, 2010 { Internets, Life }

I first saw this over ten years ago, unexpectedly, on cable or something, under the eaves over the garage in the room I lived in in a house in southwest Portland with Mike and someone else who was possibly the Devil. Enjoy.

Funny: Beeker’s Ballad

February 10, 2010 { Internets, Life }
Beeker's Ballad

Okay, this might be the fifth/thirtieth/umpteenth time you’ve seen this already, but it is just that good that I feel like I owe the world the public service of sharing this video of the Muppets’ Beeker singing “Dust in the Wind.”

On Heroic Ancestors: For Posterity

February 7, 2009 { Internets, Life }

Three-fourths of my grandparents were WWII veterans and I wish I could express how much gratitude I have for that. Whilst I belong staunchly in the pacifistic camp, I nevertheless hold those who give their service, honor, and sometimes their lives in the highest esteem possible. Though I am, in the strongest terms, opposed to [...]

Wikipedia: On How I Want to Give them Photos but am Scared

December 30, 2008 { Internets, Photography }

A quick break from end-of-year musings to revisit a slightly more real world. I had an interesting conversation with Pete Forsyth at the Green Dragon during Beer and Blog last Friday (I know, that’s a mouthful; I don’t talk that much about the tech junkets I go on, but they are frequent and often cleverly-named). [...]

Presidential Debate and Party: Thanks for a Great Night

October 8, 2008 | 1 comment { Geek, Internets, Life }

Last night was neato. We filled the Mission Theater in Portland with a lot of enthusiastic debate watchers. Rep. Earl Blumenauer spoke and said nice things about us and the potentials of technology like this. Team members (including me) got a chance to take questions and show off the capabilities of the application. So, if [...]

How Much Fun I Had Helping Make the Obama iPhone App: Tons

October 2, 2008 | 16 comments { Geek, Internets, Life }

It is with great joy that I am finally able to share with you the project that I (and a ridiculously talented small group of people) have had the good fortune to be a part of: Obama ’08, the official iPhone application for the Obama/Biden presidential campaign. Neat, huh? The amount of energy that went [...]

eBay Strains my Faith in Humanity

September 11, 2008 | 4 comments { Internets, Life }

It may be a bit of a stretch to see a Web site as a metaphorical anathema to one’s philosophical bent, but there is something deeply disturbing about eBay. Something that at once makes me feel offput, angry and sad. It is unsettling to have such a personal reaction to a font of commerce. I [...]
