When your TV is a docking station, who needs a Tivo (or Boxee)?

Sun, 01 Mar 2009 18:04:26 +0000

At lunch with Brian Dorsey last week, I noted how I was using my TV as more of a docking station these days. A couple of years ago I made my way over to “Mantasyland“, and bought a 50 foot SVGA cable and some 1/8” stereo jack extensions to set things up. While I’ve been […]

Attencion! Camp — Starbuck vs. Samwise in a Fight (and what does that have to do with the Attention Economy?)

Fri, 27 Feb 2009 19:32:21 +0000

As I’m getting around to documenting some of the fun things I’ve gotten to do over the last year, this one was quite the blast. I updated my (Geek Fight * Attention Economy) talk with a new character — this time a woman who kicks serious ass. At the very first BarCamp Seattle last June, […]

Kindle My Faith (Book Pitch 2.0)

Fri, 06 Feb 2009 18:32:40 +0000

I’m not working as of yesterday and I have a Kindle on backorder — which is kinda funny when you think about it. I’d been debating ordering one for a year or so. Would I really use it? My friend Randy Stewart said he didn’t like his and got rid of it — recommending I […]

Had coffee with Drupal aficionado Gregory Heller over at Top Pot in downtown Seattle on Tuesday and he pointed me to Jakob Neilson’s new article on the 10 Best Intranets of 2008. Design seemed to figure directly into business results. Here’s a short money quote — The productivity gains from polishing the user experience are […]

Ignite Seattle video featured on Lifehacker

Wed, 12 Sep 2007 14:49:52 +0000

One of the Ignite Seattle videos I produced was featured on Lifehacker this AM. Wow. Rob Gruhl’s preso on “How to Buy a Car without Getting Screwed” is a perfect example of why I spend time capturing these snippets of community gatherings. It’s such a treat to watch these things take on a life of […]

Barr on Twitter Pitches

Tue, 20 Mar 2007 15:31:13 +0000

Jeff Barr has an interesting post from the other day on Twitter Pitches Earlier today I coined the phrase TwitterPitching to describe the act of encapsulating an entire business plan within the 140 character limit of a Twitter post.
