Prezi, all grown up

My inbox this morning contained a message from the creators of Prezi, the “zooming presentation editor,” saying that Prezi is out of beta and just about to go public. Yay! I went back to my previously created Prezi about the 2009 Horizon Report to see if the download is working, and indeed it is! I […]

my email is making me cry

I feel so betrayed. My inbox, once a stable, reliable place, has become a chaotic, shifting world of violent upheaval, much as I imagine a newly-forming planet or the inside of a volcano to be. Email that I KNOW I have read and left in my inbox vanishes. Email that I have read and filed […]

um… what?

My mom just tipped me off to the new search engine that was released Monday (yes, I’ll admit it, my mom got the drop on me) called Cuil. Say: cool. Yeah, that’s a problem right there for those of us who don’t speak Gaelic (sorry, Dad). There’s a neat little story in the FAQ that […]

Highlights for me were seeing one of my idols, Kathy Sierra, give a knockout talk that made me want to take up […]

Twitter’s AWOL

It started last night. I hit “reload” to find out what everyone was doing just before I quit for the night. Nothing. Blank white page, little spinny Firefox icon. No updates. No avatars. Okay, I thought. I can cope with this. It’s late, and I can just check in the morning. No problem. Except I […]

still don’t get Twitter? try this

If you are one of those people who still don’t grok Twitter (and there are many, so don’t feel even a little bit bad about it), this may help explain it to you. Load the page, sit back in your chair, and just watch for a minute or two. If you DO get Twitter, you […]
