T-Mobile rolling out 3G tomorrow in New York -... →
And this coming just weeks after I gave up T-Mobile for AT&T :-) Edit: it’s 3G for voice only, not data. Even cell phone geeks like me don’t care about that. At all.

A Nerdy Proposal Story →
My friends are nerdy (like me), but this one tops them all. No one I know wrote (or even could have written) a home-brew Nintendo DS game to deliver the question.

Car drive to Maryland: Painful
During a particularly bad point in traffic, Nicole said, a propos of nothing, “If I’d never met you, I wouldn’t be in this car right now.” An hour later, she muttered “I’m back here just thinking of things I could throw at you.” Tomorrow, we get to do the drive again, in reverse. Yay!

What goes where?
Now that I’ve been toying with Twitter for a couple days, I’m starting to wonder — what goes on Twitter, and what on Tumblr?

Ferrets have many talents →
I had been wondering how Verizon was going to get the FiOS fiber-optic cables into old Manhattan apartment buildings like mine. Here’s a possible answer: “rats and ferrets have been taught to pull fibre in situations where normal technologies do not work.” Excellent! Put those rodents to work.
Names That Match Forge a Bond on the Internet -... →
I used to work pretty hard to keep myself off of Google search results — I set the robots.txt on my blog to keep search engines out, I didn’t use my full name in any posts elsewhere, etc. I liked the feeling of privacy that came from being on page 2 (or later) in Google. Lately, though, I’ve started to tip the other way — being more comfortable appearing in search results,...
