Moved to linode

I’ve moved everything over to because Redwood Virtual never responded to my second email (see my earlier post about my troubles with them). Fuck them, if they can’te ven respond to my emails they don’t deserve my business. So far, Linode offers 1000% better tools and much better visibility into what the physical machine is doing (load level graph for the machine, console access to my virtual machine, etc).


A Gamers’ Manifesto

A must read by David Wong and Haimoimoi: A Gamers’ Manifesto. He goes into detail about many frustrations almost all gamers have experienced with things gamemakers do. Even with its long length, it will keep you well entertained with lots of witty quips and insightful observations about the gaming world.


Exciting stuff happening here at I can finally announce to you that Akimbo will be syndicating my videoblog content. This is incredibly exciting! It’s been a pleasure working with the people there. I’m expecting a demo unit sometime in the near future, so I’ll let you know what I think about the service. Rocketboom, Steve Garfield, and Shai Coggins of Freshwave.TV were also picked up in the first round. Look for them to expand their videoblog content greatly in the next few months. Videoblogs on TV, check! What’s next?

Going to Gnomedex

Alright, so I coughed up the money. Personal money. I need an employer that’ll pay for this shit. Anyone hiring? 🙂 Can’t wait to see Eric Rice, Steve Garfield, and Sean Gilligan there, among others. It should be a blast. I’m also fortunate enough to not need to travel. If anyone needs transportation while you’re here, let me know.

Creating Buzz

If you’re not reading Rick Segal’s Post Money Value, you should be. Every time I click on his feed I read something incredibly insightful. Today, he was writing about his friend Matt’s experience with Independence Air. He talks about empowering employees to be innovative and make deals. I only wish an airline would do this. They’d win my business for life.

For some reason…

For some reason ANT for the Mac seems to lock up randomly depending on whats in my feed. Based on earlier research, changing just about anything about the feed corrects the problem, so I’m trying a test post to see if this corrects it.

Driving into Seattle
