My SXSW 2014 band picks

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Y’all. Twenty minutes ago I finished going through 4,489 songs by ~2,200 bands that are playing SXSW 2014. That’s 285 hours, or 12 days of continuous music (I started listening in January). Of those 2,200 bands, I listened all the way through at least one song of 1,000 of ’em. Of all those, these are […]

Taking care of @ColoradoTweets

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

Today the COTweeters group-tweet list (where anyone can send their tweets to the group, and the whole group gets them) succumbed to spam-bots. It had been getting worse and worse in the past four weeks. The bot-spammers are now winning over on COTweets, so I went and created a new Colorado group-tweet list, ColoradoTweets, that […]

On internet nastiness

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Long quote here froma good article about what gets rewarded online and what that results in: You simply can’t have a system which rewards nastiness over niceness and which offers no consequences for those who commit cowardly anonymous attacks and then act surprised when people don’t know where to draw the line. And if it […]

7 indications you might not be an internet noob anymore:

Monday, October 6th, 2008

…gleaned from my experiences working in an internet-inexperienced newsroom… You’re not afraid to type a URL in the address bar of a web browser. You know what “URL,” “address bar,” and “web browser,” mean. You’ve used a browser that doesn’t have “Explorer,” “MSN,” or “AOL” in its name. You know how to copy and paste […]

Adam’s new college and pro-sports aggregator site: Sportsify

Saturday, September 27th, 2008

The most successful web geek I’ve known personally, Adam Howell, launched another site. It’s his first Django-powered site, and which for no legitimate reason makes me feel a little proud inside (when we worked together at the Winston-Salem Journal, Adam started down the Ruby on Rails path at about the same time I started down […]

Three things, three videos about Tetris:

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

First, before we go all-tetris here: Tonight the Colorado Avalanche got swept, which marks the third pro sport team in Denver to exit with a sweep in a row (Rockies got swept out of the World Series in October, Nuggets swept in the first round of the playoffs this week, and Avs in the second […]

HappyJournalist

Monday, March 3rd, 2008

So, last night (Sunday) I announced the launch of HappyJournalist on my online journalism blog. The site’s a response to the AngryJournalist confessional, and so far, so good — 24 people have said what makes them happy, and hey, Gawker picked it up too. I launched the site just in time, too — a Missouri […]

Anybody want to play a game of chess?

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

Okay, so Adam kind of inspired this call-to-dork-action: We’ve been playing (as in, he’s been beating me at) chess online for a couple months … as has Vinnie … and it’s good, good fun. It’s turn-based, as in, you play a game over a week or two, whenever you have a chance. It’s fun. And […]
