Internet, you so fickle. Without much thought, you ca share something frivolous and people are all over it. You're on fire. You get an idea in your head you think will get spread, and it falls like a lead rock on Jupiter. I've only marginally followed the story, but seeing Brett Gaylor's tweet https://twitter.com/remixmanifesto/status/628246019797422080 I ...

Well, you might only be able to go back to 2007. And Google Streetview often does not provide too many exit doors. But this seemed like a cool discovery, simply at random. Last weekend I was driving north from home on highway 87, and coming down the hill from the op ...

Something to unclog the CogDogBlog Blog Clog... both of these were made on the long trip back from Hong Kong. I wish I had talked more to the guy who makes the naan at United World College East Campus in Singapore, or at least, gotten his name. Every day, blissfully, he ...
