Hope everyone had a good weekend. It was going well until Sunday. No plans to go into detail about it on here. Needless to say, here’s to a better week!
So what’s new in GJH Land (aside from being thinner now than I’ve been in a long time)?
* Remember that much-lauded Do-Not-Call Registry the Canadian federal government set up for folks to sign onto with the premise it would, you know, reduce calls from annoying telemarketers? Well, turns out it doesn’t work. Huzzah for our government!
* The Mac has turned 25 years old. The finest computing experience out there, bar none. Funny how it all went from this…
…to this in less than a generation.
Cocky? Sure, but it’s justified.
* The White House’s IT infrastructure is considered primeval against the Obama Team’s total love of technology. Odd how a government that prides itself on innovating in military technologies like this can barely keep its civilian domain up to pre-millennial standards.
* Mad Men won yet again last night at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. That’s a reason to be happy on a Monday. In other news, I’m not watching the Oscars this year and let’s hope the ratings are lower than ever. That will teach ’em to exclude The Dark Knight.
* The Encyclopedia Britannica seems to have realized that this whole Wikipedia business isn’t a trend anymore.
VIVA LA FACEBOOK: The New York Times has a great article from this past weekend’s Sunday Magazine about the influence of Facebook in organizing protests through online collaboration that spill over into the offline world. Definitely worth checking out.
