I have managed to survive last week’s surgery to correct my Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. The surgeon went in and removed an inch and a half to two inch strip off of one of my ribs so that my vein has more room and the blood flows freely from my extremities back to my heart. They tell me that the procedure worked well, although I developed a hematoma and they went back in to drain it. I know that I am still here, and while I am rather swollen, I’m not in a lot of pain.

Chris Miller, one of the founders of Podiobooks.com, came to me in late August and asked if I would be willing to read a book and write a review for The Secret Lair, his online magazine dedicated to the plight of the grown up geek trying to survive in this modern world long enough to achieve world domination. Because I’m a nice guy, and it represented an opportunity to reach out to new readers and listeners, I agreed. Chris sent me an e-copy of Gary McMahon’s “Dead Bad Things”. I’m not really a fan of horror, but I gave the book a read, and my review went live yesterday over at The Secret Lair. Please check it out, and take a peek at some of the other things that Chris and his partners in crime have to say about the state of geekdom. Read more...
Today my guest post at ChocolateScotch.com went live. This is part of the Creativity series, where different creatives from around the net have been asked to present their ideas on Art, Creativity, and Inspiration. This has been a really interesting and varied series. My article is post number 54, so there are a LOT of folks chiming in on this. You can find my essay over on the Chocolate Scotch site, and while you’re there, take some time out and read some of the other articles!
It is a really excellent series, and I’m proud to be a part of it.
Next up from the Wayback Machine, the fifth episode in the Bird House Rules/Nifty Tech Blog joint review of Twitter clients for iPad. In this one we’re looking at TweetTime. We weren’t happy with the original audio from this episode, so then we re-recorded this the night before the post was to go live over Skype. This was also the first time we had to pan an product after we’d decided to include it in the series. Read more...

This is our third episode inthe crossover series Tee Morris and I did for Bird House Rules. In this episode we took TweetDeck for the iPad to task. This episode is also the origin of “Gorilla Origami”.
I am still adding the other parts of this series to this feed, but I recommend that you check out the other episodes of Bird House Rules.
This year I have been fortunate enough to be invited as a panelist to Balticon 45. This is my first time being a panelist at a con, and I’m really looking forward to it. I also want to make sure I do my fair share of making the con an entertaining and enlightening experience for everyone (so they’ll invite me back…). I’ve submitted a number of ideas for Panels that I might be able to participate in, or even lead. Read more...
This is the second episode of the crossover series I did with Tee Morris for his Bird House Rules podcast. In part 2 of 6 we turned our attention to Echofon for the iPad.
I will eventually add the other parts of the series to this feed, but I recommend that you check out the other episodes of Bird House Rules.
My on-mic podcast debut was a crossover series I did with Tee Morris for his Bird House Rules podcast, an ongoing podcast about Twitter and how to get the most out of it. We actually met and recorded audio twice before this, but life got in the way and the audio got to be “stale” before Tee could get it edited. This show came from the third attempt, and it marked the beginning of a six part series.
I will eventually add the other parts of the series to this feed, but I recommend that you check out the other episodes of Bird House Rules. Read more...
