What is “overshare”? You know.


Webster's just picked it's word of the year. Dan Pink told me.
It's alot like the interjection in conversations "too much information!" when you want someone to stop divulging things that make you feel terribly uncomfortable or queasy. How about some understanding of privacy yours as well as mine.

EVDO is for me.


This is the story of trying to get high speed internet access where i live in philadelphia.

Let's start with Verizon.
Call them up. Give them the address. Can't find the address in their database. Hmmm. We'd like to see if we can get FIOS. Waiting on hold. Time passes. The rep can't find our address. Three people have lived there before us. Still can't find our address.

Ok so no Verizon. If they don't even know our address that spells bad news for the whole process.

iomega gets it right again


It reminds me of a flask with something warm inside for when the cold winds blow. Or maybe a cigarette/cigar case -- something very personal. The kind of gift you give to someone you are very fond of, something to inscribe.
