The Great Etech Outbreak of 2005

Sometime during the extreme lack of sleep leading up to my departure from Canada, I developed a nasty little cough. No runny nose, none of that sort of thing, just this dry cough that won’t go away. Well, I’ve apparently given it to everybody at Etech. The morning sessions have been marked by a continuous […]

Google Code

Ooo. I heart open source software. I heart Google. I doubleheart Google Code. Do they ever stop announcing things? Tags: [tag:code], [tag:google], open source

Support Darren’s 30-Hour Famine

From Darren Barefoot: I’m doing the 30-Hour Famine. The 30-Hour Famine is a program run by World Vision Canada, an NGO that fights hunger in the developing world. For 30 hours on April 1st and 2nd, I won’t eat, as a kind of symbolic gesture of support for the 800 million malnourished and starving people […]

Bad Motherfucker Redux

A friend, Craig brought up an interesting point in relation to my previous post, “Andy, Motherfucker”, that in reality one would rather be a “bad motherfucker” than simply a “motherfucker,” so it may be in my best interests to be known as “andy, bad motherfucker.” A search for that, at the moment, brings up a […]

Cool Labs Stuff from Etech

I’m at Etech and they are about to start the “From The Labs” section. They’ve always got tons of cool stuff to show for these things, although it will be tough to beat Applied Mind’s dynamic 3D topographical map. Microsoft is talking about storing all data from somebody’s senses, as it should only really take […]

Looking For A Place In The Bay Area

Due to some unusual circumstances (more on those later) I have to move back to California rather suddenly, so I thought I should get a quick blog post up to help get the ball rolling on finding a cool place to live for a few months. I am looking for a room in the San […]

Andy, Motherfucker

During a recent stint of self-righteousness and Googlejuice measurement, it came to my attention that searching for “andy, motherfucker” did not bring up my blog. I know, I know, it boggles my mind as well. How could Google, our omniscient and peaceful master not see the obvious connection between those two words. Andy. Motherfucker. Come […]

Happy International Women’s Day

You go girls. There’s really something to be said for women, they really operate in a completely foreign world. They endlessly torment us with their unbelievable appeal mixed with immense unattainability, yet in the end all decent men will crawl after every scrap of love their particular Venus lets fall to the ground and never […]

On Will’s Idea To Stop Phishing

One of Will‘s recent posts, How To End Phishing With RSS, brings up an interesting idea to deal with phishing (if you don’t know what it is, read the post, it has a perfect explanation of it). When you sign up for an online service, you’re given a private, randomly generated RSS feed. The URL […]
