No such thing as spare time.

No such thing as free time.

No such thing as downtime.

All you got is life time.

Go.

Is Jakob Nielsen’s Website Usable?

I

For those of you that don’t know who Jakob Nielsen is, click on this link. For those of you that don’t want to leave the comfort of my site, I will simply say he is one of the founders of web usability. For those of you that don’t know what web usability is, it would suffice to say that it is what Jakob Nielsen does. (I use  this logic on my four year old; drives her nuts.) The...

The Man Brand Needs a Mean Motor Scooter

T

Summer is in full swing and once again, I’ve seen many men on scooters. Unfortunately they all, for the most part, look very uncomfortable. Not with the quality of the ride but with the fact that they’re on a glorified moped (also known as a scooter). Watching some poor emasculated sot whiz by, hoping you won’t notice him is funny to see, but one can’t help feel some...

If You’re Hungry for New Shoes, Try Puma’s Mongolian Barbeque

I

If you have narrow feet and want your own customized shoes, go to Puma’s Mongolian Barbeque. The site launched in 2006 (yes, that was three years ago; I’m just getting around to it. I’ve been busy!) and allows you to customize your shoe just about any way you’d like it; except allow you to order it in a different width. It is a perfect example of what most remember The...

Why Can’t I Stream Movies from Netflix Without Being a Member?

W

Why can’t I stream movies from Netflix without being a member? I understand Netflix not wanting to send a non-member a DVD but I’m not talking about that. I just want to stream a movie and don’t really want to join. This is not because I don’t like the company but because I can’t plan out when I’ll watch a movie due to the constraints of fatherhood. Netflix is...

Twitter is Delivering on the Promise of Niche Social Networks

T

For those of you living under a very heavy rock, buried deep underground, there is this service called Twitter which has recently garnered a lot of attention. It uses what is called “micro-blogging” (140 characters or less) to tell others that follow you, what you’re up to. A personal RSS feed. Very simple idea and even though we are just at the beginning of this phenomenon...

Someone Needs a Girlfriend!

S

My site was hacked last night. Why would someone hack my site?!?!? I don’t have a million viewers. I’m not Michael Arrington. I haven’t pissed anyone off . . lately (that I’m aware of). So if you’re accessing this site with IE; you won’t see the difference. If you’re accessing it with Firefox, Chrome or Safari it declares this site as an attack site and...

The Corporate Social Graph: The Scorpion and the Frog

T

It has been a while since I posted about the Corporate Social Graph and felt it was time for an update with a focus on transparency. The overarching premise of the CSG is that online businesses are expected to behave more like individuals and that they need to inhabit social outposts on the Internet (abiding to the established behaviors of that venue), in the end building a social graph for that...
