A new home for a great service

The folks behind Twitter have found a new home for Odeo. If you haven’t seen it, Odeo is one of the most underrated tools on the internet. There is no easier tool out there to publish, create, and syndicate audio. Can’t wait to see what’s next. technorati tags:odeo, sound, audio, tools, startup

Anti-social behavior, and complacency

“…many people don’t have the social skills to notice how offensive they’re being. But even the people who are quite social and competent misbehave and, furthermore, they support a culture where this misbehavior is acceptable. I don’t exclude myself from this criticism.” Neither do I. He’s talking about geek culture, but this is something that [...]

If I were a gamblin’ man…

$100 for a 1 in 1000 chance of winning a new hybrid car? Those odds don’t sound too shabby. Especially when it’s for a good cause. (via VDB)

Elements of Style

While in Maine over the easter holiday, I had the pleasure of stopping by one of the state’s wonderful Goodwill stores. For some reason, these are consistently some of the best thrift shops I’ve ever been to. During this visit, I found a copy of William Strunk Jr’s The Elements of Style. It was not [...]

“Do you have any websites in the car, sir?”

Heh. Besides an entertaining opening story, Jesse Bennett-Chamberlain’s recent article in Digital Web Magazine is a wonderful, in-depth case study of the recent ExpressionEngine site redesign. Seriously, though, it’s worth going there just for the hook.

Naming

Stumbling onto Rich Skrenta’s post on naming (via) reminded me of something cool I came across the other day. David Sant has put together a mashup that uses Flickr tags to make suggestions for available domain names. You can enter a specific tag or a user name. Besides being a lot of fun, it’s a [...]

The “backwards” facing flag

On police cars, uniforms, etc. the US flag is always printed in reverse from how we’re normally used to viewing it: When worn in this manner, the flag is facing to the observer’s right, and gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward. Interesting. As an aside, YAHOO! [...]
