There are two sounds heard downtown on occasion that remind me of suburbia-living: lawnmowers and firecrackers. Around this time of year it sounds just like you’re living in the ‘burbs with all the explosive warzone-like symphony of firecrackers and fireworks outside your window every night until Halloween (and these ain’t comin’ from a barge off […]

Blog vs mainstream media (msm) blogs, can they co-exist? Of course they can but often times at meetups and in general discussions with other persons-of-tech I find there’s a bit of laughter at msm’s expense. Is it that they just don’t “get” blogging?
