I’m only posting this because my son and I saw this commercial before a movie, loved it, and then for the life of me I couldn’t find it anywhere online. I was (seemingly logically) searching for “Windows Phone Wedding”, sometimes adding Nokia 920… but no luck. The actual You Tube video is entitled “Switch […]
From Dave Winer: The flow there is pointless. It’s like trying to make a baby by having sex with a rock. First, it’s hard to get excited. And second, no baby.
It has been a crazy past few months for my health, or at least the appearance of my health. For about 30-something years now, I’ve had problems with my tonsils. This has included one or more bouts per year of tonsillitis, quite a few cases of strep throat and a ton of colds that just […]
Well, this certainly isn’t something that happens all that often, but after spending all day at a chess tournament (at Wellington Elementary in Woodinville) on Saturday, I ended up with a sunburn on my face and arms! It turned out to be a really nice day, which was good, since the waiting area for parents […]
A new father-son activity for Connor and me has been to go to chess tournaments, spending a few Saturdays throughout the year in some school gym.

We recently updated a few of our web sites with code that would provide a ‘nicer’ experience for browsers that were not compatible with the ASP.NET ATLAS (AJAX) scripts we were using. For some reason though, a few users who were running a fully compatible browser (Firefox 2.0.0.*), were seeing the no-script experience. We were […]
I’ve been fiddling around with mobile interfaces for both my personal site and for the various sites I work on (http://on10.net, http://channel9.msdn.com, amongst others) and I noticed the use of <meta name=”viewport” content… /> on some other mobile sites. A quick search and I found a great discussion of the viewport meta tag on furbo.org […]
I’m part of a dev team that builds blog/forum software and I’ve been thinking about mobile interfaces lately… so I’m trying to find a good example of site like ours that provides a good (enjoyable, useful and usable) mobile interface… one that will work across a variety of browses. It seems 37 Signals is thinking […]
