I don’t know if you’ve tried these things out, but I gave it a go. They could be great because it appears to be liquid graphite, and erases cleaner than the real thing! However, the mixture is too prone to clog and it comes off being a cheap ballpoint pen. *Mental Note: Doodle more.
I’m attending Wordcamp this year for the first time, and it’s a nagging reminder that I haven’t actually been a user or the product for some time. I am an advocate for the product, so I need to be more involved in all aspects of its feature set. If we met each other here at… Continue reading WordCamp, ATL
“The Story of Stuff”: Trash In, Trash Out
I just watched “The Story of Stuff” by Annie Leonard and was inspired. I am already one against disposable or individually wrapped goods, so this story really hit home with me.

Zune 30 Pandemic
Oh, good grief! I awoke this morning to find my Zune in a less than pleasing way. I was concerned that the number of times I’ve dropped the device had finally caught up with me and I was paying the ultimate price. However, I decided to check out what was being said online about this… Continue reading Zune 30 Pandemic
Zune 3.0 Coming
Mmmm…Zune 3.0. I’ve just read Jason Dunn’s (of ThoughtMedia.com) report on a recent Microsoft meeting discussing the Zune 3.0 release. I am completely sold on the Zune platform and am greatly encouraged by the up-and-coming release.

Where’s “My” Community?
I am imagining a better WordPress. For those of you who don’t know, it’s the engine behind Gradin.com, as well as countless other blogs on the Interweb. I have been using WordPress for several years now and I really enjoy it. Its many features have grown, and grown on me. Now that I am expectant… Continue reading Where’s “My” Community?
