iTunes + Twitter April 19th, 2012 @ 8:50 am PDT
It seems to me that it would be a no-brainer for Apple to update iTunes so that I could easily post a song to my Twitter account. The app could automatically insert a link to purchase the track in the iTunes store (or not, if it’s a song that doesn’t exist there).
f.lux April 3rd, 2012 @ 11:38 pm PDT
I can’t say enough good things about f.lux. It’s a small and free little app that automatically changes the intensity of your laptop’s screen based on the time of day. If you frequently find yourself using the computer long after you should be asleep, you need this app.

I wrote software which managed the processing of human tissue (knees, fascia lata, femurs, etc.) for implantation into human patients. I was very young and very stupid at the […]
The Google Segway August 7th, 2009 @ 11:25 am PDT
Remember the Segway? It was supposed to revolutionize human transportation. Remember the hype? It was everywhere. It was amazing. And now years later it’s nowhere. The day we all finally got to see a Segway I felt just about exactly the same way I felt when I finally got to see Google Wave: It’s nifty, […]
