I was recently in an online discussion about whether or not technologists should use “managed services” like the one I work for.Read More Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose
Today Google announced that they were releasing a new Composer for GMail. It’s awful. They made the window small, and right justified it. I feel like I have to crane my neck at an unnatural angle in order to see what I’m writing, and worse yet, they’ve turned my good old message composition interface into something […]Read More I’ve gone native. (Or – Google’s UI and I are parting ways)
For me, this election is personal. When a candidate and the party that backs him set out to legislate what goes on in the bedroom (telling us who to love and marry) and in the doctor's office (making decisions about my reproductive health and that of my wife) it's an affront to me and every […]Read More What This Election Means To Me

Despite all the blather out there about it being a self indulgent waste of time, I think it’s become pretty clear to anyone open minded enough to actually wake up and smell the coffee that it’s a communications medium like any other, but one that lends […]Read More Twitter is not Facebook, let’s keep it that way.
I am being amused watching people run around panicking over the coming snow. THIS IS NEW ENGLAND PEOPLE. IT SNOWS HERE! GET USED TO IT! Actually, I’m looking forward to this storm. Unlike the freezing rain and ice issues we’ve had of late, you can actually frolic and play in the white fluffy stuff and […]Read More FEAR THE IMPENDING SNOW-POCALYPSE!
As others have pointed out, both sides on this issue are jumping up and down shrilly screaming the facts as they claim to see them at the top of their lungs…Read More Conflicted about MA state Question 3: Banning dog racing
I had a rather ‘meta’ moment today after reading another article bemoaning the death of the PC as a gaming platform (An assertion of at best dubious nature).Read More DEAD is dead!
