Things have been quiet around here, and I apologize. In no particular order:
- I was on two panels at the SES San Jose conference last week, which was fun. If you ever have the chance to test Gary Price’s knowledge of obscure ’80’s pop-culture trivia, I highly recommend it. The man is an encyclopedia both of amazing breadth and depth.
- I did in fact go flying in a Stearman, and I have the pictures to prove it. Except, umm, they’re still on my phone. But they do exist. Flying an open cockpit bi-plane that’s almost twice as old as I am is one of the more fun things you can do without going to jail.
- I work with really smart people. The Bloglines team is really great and I don’t say that often enough.
- I was going to blog something about how tags are bad, evil horrible bad, and highlight the failure of existing search technology, but I couldn’t muster the energy. High level message: tags suck and are unnecessary except in cases where no other textual data exists (like photos, audio or video). Discuss amongst yourselves.
