Another Saturday, another afternoon of global cultural inhalation. | January 25, 2009
Yesterday I found myself once again doing what I've done on numerous pleasurable Saturdays -- making my way through thousands of random photos and indie-rock songs and blog entries and podcast episodes from amateur artists around the world.

Look at all the crap I got accomplished this weekend! | February 13, 2006
Wow, look at what an efficient motherfucker this new home broadband connection has turned me into! Today, lots of details of all the new things this home desktop connection has so far brought to my life, including: a recap of my del.icio.us account, detailed last Friday; how to now send an audio comment to me, straight from your computer's browser; new ways I'm interacting with Flickr now; a new service that tracks your comments around the blogosphere; I finally have an OPML feed (maybe); and of course lots of tweaks to the site itself, for geeky designers who care.

[randommedia]: My first Odeo recording | February 10, 2006
An episode of my podcast [randommedia], literally a collection of random audio posts from various moments in my daily life. Here: My first-ever recording, in fact, using Odeo's Flash-based browser software, which you'll see is still a little buggy; there are lots of tiny little skips from my original monologue in the MP3. Still, though, pretty cool.

Team, and Bloc Party. Plus: The Mayor wants a 2016 Olympics; reader feedback on my recent field report of Marshall McGearty Tobacco Lounge; alternative lyrics to "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition;" more about Heather Hamilton; and why I'm not too damn excited about all the recent mobile video announcements.

Random notes - the St. Charles, media-rich edition. | December 27, 2005
Just some short notes about how my holiday has been going this week, down here in suburban St. Louis, Missouri. This update in particular includes lots of photos and links to audio files, since I have access to my dad's laptop and WiFi connection, making it just so easy to load such media in the first place.

Regarding decentralized social networking. | December 19, 2005
