Flying

(Actually from last night during the flight, but then I got home…) As part of my new position for CampusEAI I’ve had a fairly aggressive travel schedule over the past few weeks (the cost of not relocating). It has however forced me to become much more closely acquainted with the airlines (and Continental in particular) ...

@ SakaiCon

Just got off the plane and am at the hotel for the Sakai Conference (explains the flurry of blogging — no distracting internet, so time to write 🙂 ) I’ll be out in Newport Beach, CA from Fri 11/30 – Fri 12/6. If you’re around (esp. Fri night) and looking for something to do give ...

In Denver @ JA-SIG

Made it into JA-SIG: ran into Susan on the flight from Newark, which was kind of surreal. The irony was that immediately before seeing her at the gate, I was thinking to myself how strange it is that I’ve never run into anyone else I knew while travelling out to one of these conferences. Arriving ...

Sakai Conference: Arrival

Why I’m a Mac User

Urban Legends: Automobiles (Sweet Revenge)

Judging from the entries made on one police blotter after another, cars around the nation are having their gas tanks sugared by those whom their owners have displeased. Why is this happening? Because, according to widespread belief, sugar poured into a gas tank will Sugar, Sugar turn into a poor man’s version of liquid cement ...

Video iPods That Work

The Future of Portable Video Players – But Mr. Jobs outlined three reasons he doubted video players would ever approach the success of audio players – not even counting their high price ($700 and up) and the time-consuming difficulty of loading huge video files onto them. It was clear from his answers that Mr. Jobs ...

Pay College Athletes?

Tien Mao mentioned an ESPN report on the gift bags distributed at some of this years bowl games. Both Husker and Spartan players will receive an Oakley 2.0 Crush watch, a wool letterman’s jacket with both the Alamo Bowl logo and the team logo and finally, a blue, red and yellow Alamo Bowl throwback jersey. ...
