Sunday, November 30th, 2008

The book, Mock Stars: Indie Comedy and […]

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

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 […]

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

My friend JJ got me a book a couple months age — it’s the 33 1/3 “How-This-Record-Came-Into-Existence” series’ book on Born in the USA. Bruce Springsteen and I go back — I was eight years old, with my mom and my sister in a K-Mart, and we were in the music section. My mom gave […]
