People keep going on about “convergence”. Television is going to be the web is going to be your TIVO is going to be your iPod and your phone and blah blah blah. I’ve always said that “convergence” would be a bullshit buzzword that amounted to nothing until there was a place where all your media […]

My Mom can’t figure out how to watch a Diggnation episode, so rather than walking her through five screens and then telling her how to scrub through a quicktime movie, I just mashed together all the JJ bits from Digg Episode 55 so she could see what I meant when I said I was doing […]
Heya! Lach has sent in the last of his trip photos and stories from recent ramble abroad. Some fantastic shots and excellent writing as always – check it out! The main “Lach Africa” page is here, or you can go directly to the latest update is here.
Back from Comic-Con! I met a load of super nice people at the Diggnation taping, which I dropped in on. Check those photos here. The Diggnation episode with me in it is episode 55, which goes live today (July 25th) at the Revision3 site. Someone blogged about it here. My first time “in public” and […]
Yahoo! I love Comic-Con. I’ll bring my laptop to see if i can’t do some updates from the road. See you next week! Oh, here’s another example of people with too much time on their hands.
Hey! So I bought a car. Yeah, I know. I’ve been hailing the benefits of car-sharing, because i’m a birkenstock wearing hippie (pffft). But this one kind of just fell in my lap. See, this nice lady, Tanya, moved to Vancouver from back east about four years ago. She ended up living in Jeff’s apartment, […]
Hey, so, you know Jay, AKA Janus? He was in town a while go (actually, a long while ago, but I only recently found the photo). Jason now works back east, for a large investment company, and is very sensible. He doesn’t come out west very often – Toronto is more of the investment capitol […]
Everybody else is doing it, so I figured I’d give it a whirl too. Â
Hey, if you’re a Boards of Canada fan, there’s a new EP out called Trans Canada Highway. It’s really great. Only a few songs, but hey. It’s still BOC, and they rock steady. I’m a HUGE fan of these guys; they’re a couple of dudes from Scotland, of all places, who grew up watching old […]
Have you seen my new dining room ensemble? Oh, you know you like it. Some people munch while seated at a sensible dinner table. Some nibble from a coffee table. Not me, though. I eat (and more often, drink) at my VERY OWN BAMBOO TIKI BAR! Oooooh yes, check it out. It’s FANTASTIC. Real bamboo! […]
