  • Pardon The Mess

    April 3, 2006

    Please forgive the mess as things get moved around here. (Nothing like overwriting essential files inadvertantly.) Look for some big changes sometime this week. I promise it will be worth it.

  • The Style Contest

    March 30, 2006

    After literally hundreds of hours of work on this project, we (Arvind, Elise and I) are finally doing what every good parent has to do–letting our baby wander out into the world. Meet our baby: Basically, it’s a chance for web designers to get paid for doing what they love (except for me, who volunteered... Read More

  • PlasticMind Forums: Apologies and Upheaval

    March 19, 2006

    First off, I’d like to apologize for some of the crap (pardon the language, but that’s truly what this garbage is) that’s been showing up in some of the forums (an incorrectly configured set of permissions is to blame). I try to police the forums well, but belligerent spammers don’t care about you or me,... Read More

  • Cardboard White: Swag, Feeds and Beth’s Faux Paus

    February 28, 2006

    Ok, so Cardboard White obviously isn’t perfect. But I’m really working at making it something that’s useful (if for no one else but me), so I’ve added a few more things that may help make it easier to stay current with our profuse groups’ posts. 1. First, I added an Atom and RSS feed so... Read More

  • The Style Contest

    February 10, 2006

    Well, this is one of those things that has more to do with my business than my personal life. But then a.) since I own my own business, they are one and the same and b.) I’m not getting paid for this. Essentially, several friends of mine from the Movable Type community approached me and... Read More

  • Apple’s Big Thing

    January 10, 2006

    Steve Jobs, every geek’s Santa Claus, just spilled some seriously tasty beans. Here’s what Apple has in store for us: iPod with FM tuner Mac OS X 10.4.4 released with all sorts of new widgets New iLife released: iWeb, iMovie, iDVD, iPhoto Photocasting, aka the Flickr Killer “For years intel chips have been bored in...

  • Be Amazed: The Optimus Keyboard

    January 9, 2006

    Ok folks, start saving up for my birthday (April 5th) because this has just taken slot#2 on my wish list: the Optimus keyboard. Each key is an individual display–you read it right, a small screen on each key–that can be changed by the program currently running. So if you’re playing Unreal, the AWSD keys would... Read More

  • Is This Google’s Chance to Kill Microsoft?

    January 3, 2006

    Seems as though Google has clarified that they won’t be pursuing their own own OS. So now hopefully Google and Mac get together to create the unstoppable force that could overthrow Microsoft. Maybe. Some very interesting news came across the wire today, a sort of one-two punch for the giant noone thought could die. First,... Read More

  • What the… Flock 0.5pre?

    January 1, 2006

    It’s calling itself “the social browser” and claims to be the champion of Web 2.0. Visit the site and you’ll find humongous type and a free-spirited blurb about the way the web should work, but what is Flock and should you be excited about it? It claims to be one of the first browsers that... Read More

  • Apple and the Impossible

    October 12, 2005

    Everyone was guessing about what Apple’s big announcement was this afternoon, and boy is it a shock! With the release of the impossibly small iPod Nano just a few weeks ago, all of the geeks (including me) were saying it wasn’t going to be the rumored video iPod. Everyone’s hunch was a brand new iMac... Read More

  • Del.icio.us!

    October 11, 2005

    Some of you may be familiar with this social browsing experience, but those of you who aren’t should really get on the bandwagon. You read the title right, that’s the domain name: del.icio.us — no www’s (so cliche!) just exactly as you read it there. What del.icio.us is at it’s core is a bookmark storage... Read More

  • Laptop Surgery

    October 8, 2005

    UPDATE: Well, after a long, tedious surgery and a few mishaps involving thermal compound, I’ve pieced it together and it’s running like a charm. Matter of fact, it’s running SO quietly that I thought the fan wasn’t working! Hurrah for geekism! Well, so I did it. I dove headlong into a complete dissection of my... Read More

  • Paradigm Lost?

    October 7, 2005

    OH NO. I’ve stared death (comma the blue screen of) in the face and lived to tell. That’s right, my laptop has gone to the great BIOS in the sky. I’m hoping to roll the stone away and call out, “DATA, COME FORTH” before it gets comfy up there. This certainly puts the paradigm on... Read More

  • A Whole New Paradigm

    October 6, 2005

    Well, you know how I am when it comes to talking things up. But no, really, this should be interesting. I’m going to be moving this blog to a new domain and giving it the respect it deserves. When my own dad can’t even remember my blog URL, you know it’s time for change. I’ve... Read More

  • PixelZion Podcast: Guest Appearance

    September 19, 2005

    I recently connected with an interesting community effort to bring light to the digital art world from a Christian perspective. PixelZion consists of a decent size group of artists working together to bring something valuable to the field, and they asked me to join them for a discussion about browsers on their podcast. This hour... Read More
