Google launches Street View

Posted by: Dave In: Travel|Web

Google has recently launched a nifty Street View feature in their Google Maps product. This essentially gives the user a street level view of the surroundings. It’s very cool for finding landmarks if you are cartographically challenged and need a building or reference point to guide you. Go to google maps and click on the […]

Become a little more zen

Posted by: Dave In: Philosophy|Productivity

Here is an interesting blog post from Zen Habits. Not sure I agree with everything on the list, but a lot of them make sense. I happen to clash with large gaping sections, especially “lose weight” and “rise early.”  Wasn’t Buddha fat…er jolly? Read the post here. -Dave

Hey folks, don’t panic.  Tomorrow’s Towel Day.  If you are able, wear a robe tomorrow in honor of uncle Doug.  Then kick back and have something to drink. -Dave

Radio controlled Daleks

Posted by: Dave In: Gadgets|TV

This is of interest to approximately three of my friends and most likely stupid for everyone else.  Check it out: RADIO CONTROLLED DALEKS! Ok, my excitement has already subsided. -Dave

Walter Isaacson’s new Einstein biography is pretty good so far. It’s a gigantic 700 page tome that I have just started to read last weekend. I’m hoping the physics (when I get to that section) will be easily digestible for someone like myself who doesn’t have a professional background in the hard sciences. I’m not […]

  • Dave: Not sure, Bryan, but I'd love to know where Craig lives.
  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?

  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
