Tap tap tap… is this thing on?
Have to post now so I don’t have a one-year lapse on posts here. Just have had nothing significant to post here since I got the old Twitter feed setup there on the right. Is anyone actually reading this?
Blogging’s 10th Birthday
I was reading Scoble’s post about his 7th year of blogging and some of the issues he’s had locating his old post that have gotten lost for several reasons. I know that I had some blog posts that I didn’t have in my WordPress database that I’ve lost, but then Scoble’s post reminded me of […]
The Stage Before Blogger’s Remorse
Ever wanted to blog about something, but realize before you post it that it probably wouldn’t be a great idea from a personal and/or professional standpoint? One of those days… I guess it’s better to realize this before posting it, though.
Blog ripoffs. Grr.
So, lots of people have posted about other sites scraping their blogs data, but I just stumbled across a weird one. I won’t link to it, because that only validates their purpose. Instead, they seem to be scraping from me anything tagged with ‘wireless’, and posting it. Along with lots of other blogs that are […]
I hate web spam…
I really hate web spam. Since I used to run [Movable Type](http://www.sixapart.com/movabletype) here, lots of spammers used to hit up /mt/mt-tb.cgi and /mt/mt-comments.cgi to try to auto-spam my blog.

Today, I was checking out my [Mint](http://www.haveamint.com/) statistics, and I […]
A blog for the foodie crowd
Came across this on a mailing list that I’m on: [Serious Eats](http://www.seriouseats.com/) has launched recently. It’s an interesting concept – chatter among a userbase, along with reviews/features/etc. from a more structured editing crew (don’t know if they’re paid, or if it’s freelance, or what…). Very nice. I’ve subscribed to their RSS feeds for now.
Blog ugly for a while – upgrade in process
I'm in the middle of updating the blogs back-end to Movable Type 3.31 and I've come across a potential bug that I'm trying to resolve. In the meantime, the blog will be, well, ugly.
How to build traffic to your blog
One alternative: Criticize Scoble by calling him a “fake computer geek” and have Scoble respond and link back to your blog. Seriously, though, I know that Scoble likes to give corporate blogging advice of find negative feedback, link to them, and blog about them, but I just don't see why Scoble needed to respond to […]
How much is a blog worth?
According to some analysis by technorati tags: My blog is worth $3,951.78.How much is your blog worth?
You're probably noticing a bit of change here. I got bored with the old look, and sat down and redesigned the website. Let me know what you think; I think it looks quite a bit better than the old orange 'n grey.
