Weekend Pic

Carmen at TahoeCarmen and I spent a short weekend at Reno/Tahoe, and I snapped this picture of her at the shore of Lake Tahoe. A nice trip, alas, all to short. Love you honey! Every moment with you is a vacation all by itself.

Picture seems overblown because I used my cameraphone, and let’s face it, it’s not the greatest camera.


The more things change, the more things stay the same, and the snake continues to eat its tail.

Dave Slusher expressed a certain disgruntlement with KYOURadio, a commercial venture that would air podcasts produced by amateurs over the contentional radio spectrum. I wonder how he would react to the news that PodFather Adam Curry is poised to do precisely the same thing:

Mr. Curry will help choose material for “Adam Curry’s PodShow” from some of the thousands of amateur shows produced in basements, living rooms and dormitories. Sirius subscribers, who pay $12.95 a month for the service, can listen to the show on channel 148, “Talk Central.”

More and more, the new revolutionary medium seems to be led by those who are intent on just rebuilding the same media over and over again. In Adam’s case, even the face is the same.

No Intelligence in Intelligent Design

Periodically Slashdot runs a story to punch the creation versus evolution button. I must admit, it’s one of my hot button topics. I’d could rant substantially about it, but instead I’ll just ask that you read the comments and see how many of its proponents seem to be unable to spell the word “intelligent”.

A brief list:

  • intelegant
  • intellegent
  • integgegant

They also can’t seem to spell the word “atheist”, or apply it correctly.
