Two hours ago, the alarm clock went off, and it took me a good ten minutes to remind myself that I wanted it that way. A change seems to have come over me, and the guy who once hated early mornings has now taken a liking to them. Sometimes I hate that guy, until I realize that that guy is really just me. A new version of me, sure, but me nonetheless. He’s figured out that, were he actually...
Here's where I'm at.
I am a devoted gadget nerd. Certified. I love my computers, I have a smartphone and a Kindle, and an iPad. I’ve fallen into the trap of believing that the “Look what I can do!” mentality is somehow more interesting than the “Look what I made/created/wrote/designed!” one. I found myself using my iPad to follow tech news, on an endless quest to find out just how much I...

Omigod you guys!
My honey took me to the theater to see Legally Blonde the Musical just now, and it’s all I can do to sit still right now because it was so stinking cute and catchy and god I love that man.
angleofattack: producermatthew: First video of shaking from a massive 7.9 earthquake that struck Japan less than a half-hour ago. Live coverage on aljazeera. There was a 5.6 on Wednesday. I flew out of Narita yesterday. I hope everyone is OK. It’s been upgraded to an 8.8. Plus a tsunami. Holy crap.

In my quest to be the best I can be at something, I’ll overthink things or invest more time in thinking about something rather than, simply, doing something. I can imagine grand scenarios in my head, picture the future the way I want to see it, envision something creative and know that I have it within me to make that happen. In these...

gordonshumway: On this side of the Atlantic, where our breaded fish comes with fries, where we skip tea and embrace orthodontic treatments, you don’t expect to flip through the sports section to read about cricket.

An open letter to developers everywhere.
Dear Developers, Kudos for all the hard work you do, and for making nerdy hearts the world over content with cool software for computers and applications for phones. Your tireless efforts do not go unnoticed. However, can we all please agree that in-app purchases are the worst inventions of all time? Nothing turns a guy off more than paying for a brand new app (or new software) only to learn...
