Let’s face it, it’s not easy to make a list of great things that happened in 2001. My mental list of bad things probably could stretch for days, but I dug up a few highlights in an otherwise dreadful year: – I got to broaden my skills at a variety of employers and client projects …

This year’s xmas, or as
This year’s xmas, or as I like to call it “that magical time of year when every commercial on TV is for electric shavers,” was a good one. I got a warm coat for San Francisco’s cold winters (and summers), a fantastic book I didn’t know existed but one I needed for research, a nice …
Cory has a great article
Cory has a great article (it sounds like it could/should be a conference keynote address) at O’reillynet about the intersection of internet reliability and the business world.

Tomorrow I’m off to see
Tomorrow I’m off to see Frodo and Bilbo in the most anticipated movie of the year. I’m have high hopes, but I don’t think it will disappoint like that other blockbuster did.
Ev recently discovered Netflix, and
Ev recently discovered Netflix, and mentioned they could stand to make a lot of money if they carried adult titles in their catalog. The first time I checked out netflix (maybe six months ago, when I first signed up), for kicks I looked for adult titles and noticed they had a good deal of porn …
An excerpt from Cory’s book
