  • Georgia Theatre

    All over Athens, people have been mourning over the Georgia Theatre fire today. When I got home, I found a weird voice mail: “Hi, Mr. Greene. My name is <removed name>. I would like to discuss with you the property at 215 North Lumpkin. Call me at <removed number>.” I listened to it a second […]

  • Relative Truth

    Found an interesting comment on an article the state of Georgia observing the Confederate Memorial Day…. The truth of history means very little to those who are dead set against learning anything from it. No matter what the history books used in our public school system say, most will never believe anything other than their […]

  • Resolutions For 2009

    Read 10,000 pages of science, economics, health, history, or policy books. For 2008, it was read 25 books. This year, I thought to change it page-based as the previous one shied me away from larger books. Two 350 page books vs one 700 page book shouldn’t be a concern. See Reading for last and this years’ […]

  • Eduyawn

    Edupunk is “Do It Yourself” in education or instruction technology. Free or at least cheap tools suitable for classroom use are so ubiquitous, the faculty have plenty of alternatives to the monolithic “enterprise” LMS. If edupunk was a boat, then what would it be? A bamboo raft? This is not something new. My mom conned […]

  • MPG

    I scored 39.1 miles per gallon on the drive home yesterday. Its not a hybrid, so I think this is pretty good. By doing more drafting or cutting back on driving so fast, I could break 40. tag: car, environment

  • BbWorld Presentation Redux Part II – Monitoring

    Much of what I might write in these posts about Vista is knowledge accumulated from the efforts of my coworkers. This is part two in a series of blog posts on our presentation at BbWorld ’07, on the behalf of the Georgia VIEW project, Maintaining Large Vista Installations (2MB PPT). Part one covered automation of […]

  • Software Sucking So Seeking Something

    So many to cover let me number them. Trillian has been my IM client of choice since their beta. I’ve used Gaim and any number of programs who do multiple IMs from one client but found them lacking. Trillian was even the first software for which I was willing to pay my own money. (Otherwise […]

  • BYOB

    I may have to go to an IKEA store just to show my support. The plastic bags I hate. The paper bags I hate. This is awesome. Attention Shoppers: Bring Your Own Bag – Newsweek: Tip Sheet Environment – MSNBC.com: Apparently BYOB translates a little differently in Sweden. At least for IKEA, the privately held […]

  • Science News

    News about scientific topics annoys me. The latest, on the melting of the Martian polar ice caps hinting at a warmer than usual Sun causing global warming makes me wonder if Kate reads about science as voratiously as I do? I mean, as I started to read this, I recalled that the number and size […]

  • Look for a Patent Wiki in 2007

    Patent review goes Wiki – August 21, 2006: That’s the basic concept behind a pilot program sponsored by IBM and other companies [including HP and Microsoft], which the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office appears poised to green-light. The project would apply an advisory version of the wiki approach to the patent-approval process. The issue is […]
