The wire is buzzing this morning with some big news. Let’s start off with a little Apple smackdown before moving into the latest Microsoft attempt to synthetically increase profit margins.

In true geek fashion, I took little interest in the Superbowl, tuning in mainly for commercials. I did manage to catch the amazing Steelers play. But reset assured, fellow nerds, I still have no idea who was involved and likewise, who the MVP was for the game.

Now back to your regularly scheduled blogging after the break.

Not a lot of interesting news to discuss lately (in my mind), so I’ll bring you this instead:

It looks like there’s a new law coming that would require cell phones to “click” when snapping a photo, with no way to disable the feature. I’d like to know who drafted this and how they managed to miss the infinite possibilities to completely bypass the law without risking any charges. None of which require a full sized camera.

From a minimalists point of view, the “hecticity” of the world seems fraught with “inefficiency.” I try to apply my principles to everyday life but sometimes even I get caught in the manusha of “things.” AJAX and Web 2.0, PHP and Python, it all comes down to delivery. Do we deliver correctly? When you rely too much of budding technofads, sometimes it’s forgotten that we take in information at our own “pace.”

It’s cold outside today. Or at least what Floridians call cold. The annoying sort of cold that doesn’t quite let you dress comfortably. Unfortunately my rugby jersey and Dickies jacket do nothing for my hands and nose, but there’s not a whole lot I can do about it, so we deal.

this is it

Don’t get scared, now. First post, and not one of noticeable impact. Perhaps later, when I’m rested, more aware, will I begin my path to becoming a better writer.
