This is my first entry made from my iPhone using the third party WordPress app developed for it. I’m impressed with both.

My Directorial Debut

05.19.2008 · Posted in Autobiographical, Technology

After seeing Joseph Jaffe record himself on his fancy Flip, I had to have one. It was last month at an event organized by Tim Brunelle for his Future of Advertising class at MCAD. I put this together today after fighting with iMovie trying to figure out how to make the playback speed faster and ...

Nike’s latest product

I’ve officially been Googled and I couldn’t be more ecstatic! Google Maps has released the Minneapolis area of their Street View functionality.

You’d think I would have learned my lesson after the last time my computer went kaput. In fact, I had. I setup a nightly syncing mechanism that would copy everything onto another drive on my home network.

Google quiety supporting fight against global warming?

Google frequently changes its logo during holidays, special events, or what have you. Today I noticed the regular old Google logo at their landing page: You can see all of their previous logos online. Today, on their search results page, where the logo is found in a smaller version at the upper-left corner, they have ...

I’m a self-proclaimed google geek. The technologies and innovations they develop are simple, yet useful. I love them. However, I’m not quite sure what prompted this ad to appear on my website. ...
