  • Oooh! Oooh! Pick Me! Pick Me!

    The [in]famous (to those listening to TWiT podcasts, at least) Andy Ihnatko and Scott Bourne have started up a new Q&A-style website known as “Managing Your Digital Life” or and, in a fit of generosity, are giving away not one, but two Drobos to some random, lucky souls, all for the paltry entry fee…

  • Kudos For Praized

    Yes, I avoided the “praise for Praized” pun. My buddy Stephane (he of fellow WPhone fame) and his workmates have gone live with their social app, Praized. Think of it as a Web 2.0-ish Angie’s List, with local business/hotspot search and reviews (“Praize”/”Raze”, depending upon your level of Customer Support Mojo™). They’ve got Movable Type…

  • ‘Cause I’m A Big Picture Kind Of Person, That’s Why.

    The Boston Globe’s online edition has an incredibly cool photo blog called The Big Picture featuring very large photos culled from the day’s news. Get started on the pictures of Chile’s Chaiten volcano, follow that with shots from the Space Shuttle then take a gander at shots from Mars. Very cool.

  • Terrifying. Amusing, Yes, But Terrifying.

    If you have not yet subjected yourselves to the awesomely-disturbing ManBabies, then you’ve not yet fully lived. In brief, pictures featuring fathers/grandfathers/older gents and young children are head-swapped/-Shopped, resulting in images like the above. Go ye and bask in the surreality.

  • The Dangerous Website For Boys [At Heart]

    Dangerously Fun is precisely just that. Consider it a low-key Backyard Anarchist’s Cookbook for the Internet age or an amped-up version of The Dangerous Book For Boys (no Amazon link provided, since The Dread Error Http/1.1 Service Unavailable hath returned full aforce). Especially fun-looking is their spin on Fire Wire. Go ye and check it…

  • Webcomics Worth A Look

    What follows are a few of the more “out-there” of the webcomics that I have found in my years on the ‘Net. All are worth reading, at least semi-regularly. First up is The Book of Biff by Chris Hallbeck, which details the trials and travails of a mute protagonist named, wait for it, Biff. Subtle,…

  • Youngme / Nowme

    This is a pretty nifty idea: Youngme / Nowme asks folks to send in photos of themselves 1) from their younger years then 2) recreating (to the best of their ability) the scenes in the photos right now. Some are hilarious, some are touching, all are worth looking through.

  • An Incredible View Of Downtown Philadelphia

    A few lucky private citizens were lucky enough to be invited to take a tour of the still-under-construction Comcast Center in Center City Philadelphia. One enterprising blogger amongst the crowd documented the trip in pictorial form (the above panorama is an image from the 55th story). There are some incredible shots amongst the ones he…

  • AndyOne, You Have A New Mission

    You must acquire a fully-functional pinball table constructed entirely of LEGO® bricks.

  • Friday Linkfestivus

    Time for a little link dump, I’d say. Looking for an oldschool flair for your newschool iPod? Best grab a boombox dock, then. Via Wired, we have the wonder of officeplace Faceball.
