Moblogging

It's a beautiful day, for once (we've had many rainy cold days in a row - unusual for May.) I'm sitting at an outside table, at one of my more favorite haunts in Amherst (I'll miss it,) Rao's Coffee, waiting for a friend to arrive. I decided I'd try my hand at Moblogging (blogging from my cell phone).

Interesting ...

Maybe this is the cure for my Gadgetaholism?  OK, you're right, it's not. But it's fun, nonetheless.

Sundries

I've been catching up a bit on my blog reading, and caught a few interesting tidbits I thought I'd pass along. First, in my never-ending quest for nice places to hang out, sip, and surf, I found a very cool site, called the Delocator. Type in a zip code, and get a list of Cafes with WiFi. Very helpful. You can also add a cafe that you know about.

Professional Bloggers?!

I happened across this site, called "View from the Isle" which landed in my RSS feed from iPodder.org. At some point, I'll post about Podcasting, since I know a lot of folks don't know a lot about it. But back to "View from the Isle" - it is a blog by a professional blogger, who does things like blog consulting. He is a founder and board member of the Pro-Bloggers Association.

To Do lists and such

This is a great time to introduce folks to 43 folders, a blog I've been reading recently. It's blog with tips, reviews, hacks, tools, and all sorts of good stuff. What's also cool is that it's very Mac-centric. :-) Today, there are two good posts to talk about. The first, one that I need badly, is Cringe-Busting your TODO list. Basically, it's making a list, and looking at what makes you cringe the most.

The "Nuclear Option"

I don't know how many of you are following this whole thing about filibusters. Daniel Harper (Another Unitarian Universalist Blog) has an entry on it today, quoting our fearless leader, Bill Sinkford, on the whole issue. (That last link, by the way, is not only Sinkford's quotes about the issue, but a whole host of very helpful links.)

Progressive Religious Movement Stuff

It's taken me a while, and I'm clearly behind the eight ball, but there are some very interesting things happening in the realm of the "progressive religious movement" or whatever one might call it. I'm beginning to gather bookmarks on it, and will share them when they reach a critical mass. But one group to look at are the Christian Alliance for Progress. I know, sounds dangerous, but read their stuff.

Strange and Compelling

I came across a very strange website today, found through BoingBoing. It's called CwE or "Crying while Eating". It consists simply of  10 or so people, both men and women, being filmed crying about different things while eating at the same time. On one hand, it is definitely reminiscent of times when, for what ever reason (someone had died, I'd broken up with a partner ...) I'd cried over my food. But it also is strange to watch other people do it.

Reality Sinks in

It's really beginning to sink in. Today, two things happened. One, I had to go to my lawyer's office, to check out the purchase and sale agreement on the condo. The closing is set for July 8th. Basically, the next steps are for me to sign it, for the buyer to sign it, and then, unless for some reason they can't get a mortgage, it's done.  Well, no, it's not done. The sheer amount of things I have to do in order to get it done is rather overwhelming right now. But I'm trying not to think about it.

People who are out of their minds

There is a new book out, called "The Bottomless Well: The  Twilight of Fuel, the Virtue of Waste, and why we will Never Run Out of Energy". There's a blurb on the book (which has a nice little propoganda film). It was written by folks who are part of the Manhattan Institute, which is a conservative think tank.

I'm speechless.
