Sorry for the drool

Holy lord…. where can I buy one?? Seriously. Today. UPDATE: Official info from Apple on the iPhone. Is there anything this phone can’t do?? Personally, I’ll wait for 3G data and more info about how my contacts, calendar, and email can sync over the air. That’s what ties me to my Windows smartphone now. UPDATE […]

Incredible Song

A little late for Christmas, but still worth sharing. The music was originally broadcast on Studio 60 put together by the folks at the Tipitina’s Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping artists recover from Hurricane Katrina.  Last year they raised $500,000 for new instruments alone.

What a day…

After a long (but not horribly long) night and a long day here at Casa Del Hospital, I’m finally taking a bit of down time to catch up on work and blogging. Bridget and I have stepped into the waiting room to get a better Wi-Fi signal and to give mom some incredibly much needed […]

Social media – the time has come

Lately I’ve found myself in the midst of a number of conversations talking about the early days of the internet. I was one of the people who saw the "utopian vision" that was the power of the internet almost as soon as I was introduced to it. With the way that social connection has been […]

Clearly I'm ready for fatherhood

The video below was featured on the YouTube home page last night. When I found the clip, it was late night Friday and I was still working. I had work stress, weekend task list stress, and pending birth stress. This clip immediately washed away everything except barrel laugh and excitement about the upcoming baby. Enjoy!
