Adam Ostrow, Editor in Chief of Mashable.com, is really weird. He gave this presentation at a recent TEDtalk and managed to bum the whole audience out. To him, it would be super cool if – based on previous material posted by you – Facebook, Twitter et al, could continue to post and update your pages … Continue reading Adam, So What You’re Saying Is: Robot Ghosts?
Settle down. Don’t get too excited and try to stay focused. I know this winter’s been SICK and all of you are cold, pasty, malnourished and sick of watching too-tanned Brad Womack in a steaming hot tub, but you gotta stay with me here. I have some news for you. The world might be coming to an abrupt … Continue reading The Ice Storm Cometh

Someone recorded it badly. Now we all have to watch it. I’m sorry. Continue reading Kim Kardashian Is A Reluctant Pop Star
Have you seen these two? If you haven’t, consider yourself very lucky. For most of the holiday season, I’ve had to grunt, grind my teeth and bear through these incredibly annoying Hyundai Holiday commercials, over and over and over again. Every commercial break, there they are, on a loop, singing their syrupy, high-pitched versions of holiday … Continue reading Two things I won’t miss about 2010: Pomplamoose.
For Christmas this year, I accompanied my friend Heidi to her parent’s home in Sherwood Forest, Maryland. Yes, that’s right. The name of the community is Sherwood Forest, as in Maid Marian and Robin Hood (those are street names, too). We were in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by woods and nature, with no cable news … Continue reading Snowmageddon 2010!
