Gary Cho invented the “Caring Cot” that potentially allows parents to get the entire night’s sleep. As a relatively new parent myself, the concept of more than a few hours of sleep at a time was just inconceivable for the first several months. We’ve gotten a little better at ignoring the minor sounds … [Read more…]
I’m deeply inspired by the efforts of Dunstan Orchard and friends in the development of a dynamic banner on his webpage. A friend of mine, Sean, pointed this site out to me. You just simply have to read the description, but here’s an excerpt:

We traveled out to my mom’s place, Dancing Goat’s Farm, for the day. There we visited with her and my grandmother and her sister. They’re “refugees of Hurricane Ivan” as Gwen (my grand aunt) put it. At any rate, my mom enlightened us to the behavior of a male goat with a … [Read more…]
I’m just getting home from our session on the square this evening. Balthazar (who’s 1.5 years old as of this writing), insisted on staying up the entire time. Last time he fell out after a couple of hours. This time he remained pretty lively – though walking like a drunk – and … [Read more…]

This is an interesting conversation to have with a Microsoft goon, but a good one nonetheless. His take on OpenSource was familiar; that without corporate backing and support, there can be … [Read more…]
“It’s been a long time since my output has risen above sea level. This is the benchmark for me”

“‘The execution of today’s warrants disrupted an extensive peer-to-peer network suspected of enabling users to traffic illegally in music, films, software and published works,’ Attorney General John Ashcroft said in a statement. ‘The Department of Justice is committed to enforcing intellectual property laws, and we will pursue those who steal copyrighted materials even when they … [Read more…]
“The computer industry’s track record is just shameful. In what other area of our consumer life would we accept ‘buggy’ products that only work some of the time? If your car (assuming it wasn’t a jalopy), tennis racket or can of Coke failed regularly, you’d be pretty upset. Yet, the software industry has failed to … [Read more…]
