Men need to

(ETA: I have no idea why the template formatting is so screwed up on this entry. Possibly because I had to re-edit the pictures and then re-upload. It’s making me crazy.) I ran across a fabulous AdWeek story today, about the UN Women campaign using actual results from Google autocomplete searches — which are aggregated […]

Simple rules when using the Internet

Filed under: The Web

I know, I’m probably biting off more than I can chew here, but what the hell. 1. Don’t say anything you wouldn’t say to someone’s face. This goes double if you’re going to post as “Anonymous.” The only possible exception to this: you are whistle-blowing on some egregious, illegal practice that you can’t possibly own […]

SOPA/PIPA

Filed under: Politics, The Web

You’ve heard about these acts. The Internet’s gone dark today. You haven’t called your representatives. Why should you do anything? Well, because you’re not asked to do that much in general, frankly. And sometimes you just have to stand up and be counted. Call your representatives and say, “This is BAD. Vote NO.” Christ. Just […]

Fun Sites For You To Check Out

Filed under: Apple, Bicycles, Cooking and Food, Health and fitness, The Web

In case you’re looking for interesting things around the Web this New Year’s (and who, of course, is not?). The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, who also has a new book by that name (which I haven’t read but sounds very interesting and very much the sort of thing I’ve started doing on my own […]

Morning round-up

Filed under: Politics, The Web, Those Darned Links!, TV

• So, there is a movement afoot to take next year’s Foothill New Works Festival to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Pretty much the major reason why we wouldn’t do it is if the American dollar goes to, I dunno, 3 or 4 to the British pound. But! Doctor Who as Hamlet! I am so there! […]

Statistically improbable phrases

Filed under: Short Shameful Confessions, The Web

Things I never thought I’d type into the Google search box (but did, yesterday): Dr Who livejournal icons (Turns out there were a lot to choose from, too.) Feel free to post your own strangest Google searches ever. (Except for pornographic ones, because, like really, who cares? Nothing about pornography is statistically improbable, unfortunately.)

One side benefit of RSS feeds

Filed under: The Web, Writing

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m addicted to RSS feeds now — if a blog doesn’t have a feed, I don’t read it. I currently have something like 320+ feed subscriptions, and I’m trying to get it under control, but it’s such a great way to keep up with blogs. One great side benefit is that, […]

The MarsEdit test

Filed under: The Web

This is a test of MarsEdit, the weblog entry editor from Ranchero. They also do NetNewsWire, which is my new favorite app, as I’ve just discovered RSS feeds. (Yes. I am behind the curve on everything. I am still trying to figure out ringtones. I am an old fogey.) I don’t know if I really […]
