I’ve been playing around with MediaTemple for a few project and finally decided to move all my personal stuff over to them. I’m happy to say that all my many domains moved without a hitch and I’m really enjoying their GRID service. On the off chance you see something broken or weird, please let me know. Thanks!
I recently moved my office from West End to Center615 in East Nashville. We’ve only been here a couple of weeks, but I’m really enjoying the new space even though they still have a lot of projects ongoing and everyone is still settling in. I too am settling in as I learn a different commute, different parking, locations of things (like the post office), etc. Yesterday, I stumbled upon a new little habit I have, that I particulary enjoy.

Google Reader has been in the news a lot this week due to the fact that Google is shutting down the service effective July 1. There has been a lot written about the subject and I wasn’t really planning on adding to the conversation, but then I read Mike Rohde’s article Bye Bye Google Reader and as Mike often does, he inspired me.

They say that the first step is admiting you have a problem. So be it. I have keyboard fever. Looking back, it would appear that I’ve had this addiction since my early days of computing, however, I didn’t realize just how bad my addiction to keyboards was until recently when my Apple Bluetooth Wireless keyboard suddenly stopped functioning. A few simple Google searches and I found myself deep in the weeds and realized I had bottomed out.
OK, I think I’ve worn that analogy about as thin as pancetta, but I truly do love keyboards and there is no doubt that I have recently gone off the deep end with them. Like anything I love, I always feel compelled to share it with others, hence this series of blog posts. Series? Oh yeah, ya heard me. Continue Reading
I signed up for Gmail on June 14, 2004, two months after the service launched and thus was able to secure my favorite username. It’s but one of the many, many e-mail addresses that I’ve used over the years but it’s still my go to for sites that I’m not 100% comfortable sharing personal information with. Which is to say that this isn’t a primary address that I value extremely highly, or even check every day. However, I do use it and plan to do so for many years to come, that is until something weird started happening that’s made me reconsider it’s value.
The other day I came across a new app in my daily news feeds that caught my attention. It’s a notes app called Mochi that has one standout feature that my other notes apps are “missing” – tasks. The Bees Are On The What Now?  Yeah, I know, it sounds weird, but I think it’ll make sense if I explain my notes workflow.
Apparently I’ve had this blog now for almost 10 years and in that time there have been 4 different looks to the site and with this post, I’d like to introduce the 5th version! I did a recap back when I hit version 3, which you can find at this link, so I thought I’d do an update to recap what changed since I posted that entry back in 2010. Continue Reading
I came across the video “What I Have To Offer” this morning. Don’t remember how I found it because it completely stopped my morning routine, but I just had to share it.
Charlie Kaufman is most known for his incredible screenplays Being John Malkovich, Adaptation (among others), and his directorial debut Synecdoche, New York. I’m a huge fan of his work and last year he gave a closing lecture to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in their Screenwriters’ Lecture Series.
Eliot Rausch took an excerpt from Kaufman’s talk and created a short film around it and, well, blew me away.
If you’d like to listen to the full speech you can find it on the BAFTA web site at this link. There is a highlight video at the top of the page, but the audio player below is what you’re looking for.
