First of all, let me announce what is prob­a­bly the worst kept secret since we announced we were preg­nant: Angela and I have made the deci­sion to move to Franklin, TN (that’s near Nashville for you non-Ten­­nesseans). We had been dis­cussing the idea of doing so since July. When I say dis­cussing, I mean Angela… Con­tin­ue read­ing Ch-ch-changes!

Flickr and Creative Commons

I’ve nev­er giv­en it much thought as I’ve tried to be con­sis­tent, but Flickr allows users to switch back and forth between Cre­ative Com­mons licens­es and tra­di­tion­al copy­right, despite this being in vio­la­tion of the CC license itself. Most of my work has been pub­lished under a Attri­bu­­tion- Non­com­mer­i­cal, Share-alike CC license since I first… Con­tin­ue read­ing Flickr and Cre­ative Commons

Collaboration Is Not Second Guessing

I real­ly enjoy most movies-based-on-books in which the author is involved in the film itself (“Hell­boy” and “Sin City,” for exam­ples). Of course, what hap­pens when a direc­tor or screen-writer decides to sig­nif­i­cant­ly change por­tions of the sto­ry (like in vir­tu­al­ly ever one of the “Lord of the Rings” tril­o­gy of films)? Well, I am… Con­tin­ue read­ing Col­lab­o­ra­tion Is Not Sec­ond Guessing

In A State of Vanity

When Angela and I first moved to Vir­ginia, we made the casu­al obser­va­tion that the Com­mon­wealth has a lot of van­i­ty license plates. We even told friends and fam­i­ly back home that we fig­ured Vir­ginia had many more than Ten­nessee due to the low­er cost of get­ting them here. Turns out, Vir­ginia does have more.… Con­tin­ue read­ing In A State of Vanity

The OS Triathalon

Wednes­day evening, I final­ly got around to upgrad­ing my iMac to OS X 10.5 (“Lea­pord,” a word which only appears to occur in the instal­la­tion screens). As I’ve had a num­ber of wonky things hap­pen­ing after upgrad­ing my hard dri­ve last month, I sim­ply decid­ed to do a back­up and then the “Erase and Install”… Con­tin­ue read­ing The OS Triathalon

Mommys Representing in NY

I real­ly enjoyed this bit from the cov­er­age of yes­ter­day’s NY City Marathon, where Brit Paula Rad­cliffe won the wom­en’s race: …there was some­thing sem­i­nal about the way Gary Lough emerged from the crowd at the fin­ish line at the New York Marathon yes­ter­day in order to hand his 10-month-old daugh­ter, Isla, to her moth­er, Paula… Con­tin­ue read­ing Mom­mys Rep­re­sent­ing in NY

Where’s My gPhone?

Google, along with a num­ber of mobile hard­ware man­u­fac­tur­ers, announced the Android mobile OS today. What became painful­ly obvi­ous, though, from read­ing Engad­get’s live-blog­ging of the con­fer­ence call is that the press mem­bers that were allowed to ask ques­tions have no idea what any of this means. Repeat­ed ques­tions of ‘so when is Google going… Con­tin­ue read­ing Where’s My gPhone?
