There’s a slick new operating system out there for the masses. The best part? It’s the latest version of an old operating system that has long seemed to enjoy frustrating PC users around the world. Now, can it finish the comeback attempt?
I’m finally adding a proposal to the SXSW PanelPicker for next March’s edition of SXSW Interactive. I figured I’d try to explain it via the blog since 140 characters doesn’t seem like enough space to truly say anything about it. It is about suggestions for online and offline engagement after all…
I’ve owned a Palm Pre for six months now. I figured now is as good a time as any to write a review of how it’s survived so far.
A week later and I’m still remembering how much fun I had at BarCamp Chattanooga and a couple of lessons I got out of the quick trip to Tennessee’s Scenic City.
Since I last posted regularly to this site, I’ve become what is essentially considered a web worker (most of my friends from college may find it surprising, but not by much). The idea of mobility and access have become central themes in my daily life. I normally plan where I go and what I do around access to a wireless signal and how comfortable it will be to work from that location. As a result I’ve become a regular fixture in several area coffee houses and occasionally even an area music venue or two.
Those that know me also know that I’m a late adopter on many things, despite my constant tracking of new trends in networking and communication on the human scale (I just loaded Skype onto my new laptop – the account’s been active for at least two years). So when I was offered the opportunity to test out a Verizon Wireless USB727 modem through a presenting sponsorship for The Terminal’s Anniversary Party in mid March, I was a little nervous. Partially because I wasn’t sure if I’d like being that connected or if I’d be disappointed in the level of access. The results were very interesting (and fun).
