Still Alive!

Musings

I know it’s been awhile – I’ve actually been away from the computer more and more, and when I *am* here, I’m working.

Project Ideas

Musings

The situation, in a nutshell, is this:

  • I’ll be in hotels, airports and venues almost exclusively – not places amenable to creative focus, so the idea has to already exist and be executable in at least one of these, preferably all three.
  • I’d love to take into account the places I am, despite the fact that I’m unlikely to even leave the venues in most cities.
    • The cities are Mexico City, Jan Jose (Costa Rica), Lima, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Sao Paolo & Rio De Janiero
  • I can’t promise that I’ll be creative or motivated in any or all of these spots, so cool things like “here’s a group of things that are different, presented interestingly” is probably out.
  • As tools, I’ll have me, myself and I.

Hello

Musings

This is one of those times when two weeks have gone by, almost identical, day-by-day and every day, I think, “I’ll post something in the morning…” and every day, well… you know.

First Prince and now Time Magazine?

Musings

So by now, you’ve probably read that Prince thinks that the internet “is over”.  Thanks, genius.
Whatever.

But today I saw a piece on Techdirt pointing out that Time Magazine is publishing only excerpts of its articles online anymore.  Maybe Prince called them and explained to them that the internet was over?  I dunno.  But the idea of getting Time articles only on an iPad or in print is pretty fucking stupid.  I’m especially sad because I grew up with Time Magazine in the house and it’s one of those things that I wish I could continue to like and use in my adult life.  But if Time thinks that I’m going to continue to support deforestation, poisoning the environment through ink bleed and related detritus, truck shipping of trees, pulp, materials and finished magazines, it’s not the kind of magazine that I want to be a part of. That’s to say nothing about the support for Jobs’ absurdist self-fellating power trip.

So Time Magazine goes with Chevy in the pile of stuff I grew up with and would dearly love to continue to support, but who fucked up badly enough to push someone who wanted to support them away.  I can only imagine if you’re only neutral (or, god forbid, a Ford/Newsweek guy) how unappealing this move is to you.

Anyway, rant over.  I wonder if they’re going to recind the Computer’s Man of the Year award now.  Or the time they awarded it to bloggers (2006?).  Fucking Time.

Today has been a little better than yesterday, since every day I’m getting a little healthier and a little better rested.

Of course this week is Windows 7 week

Busiest week in who knows when?
Check.

Windows 7 Beta starts crashing on purpose every 2 hours?
Check.

I know I’m not supposed to be running Windows 7 Beta anymore, but I’m still mad.

quick update

Weekend Update

Hello there!

So this has to be quick because I’m still slammed busy and overtired from the end of tour and the weekend, but I wanted to update about the last bit of my trip, etc.

So in Charlotte, I got to see Justin for a couple of hours – it was nice to see him, but entirely too short a visit for my taste.

This is not a Hotel Review

Musings

I would very much like to post a picture or two, but the cable I brought is all wrong and the stupid Apple computers we use for this job haven’t deigned to include useful storage access.
