Another posting on opinions and other stuff on the web

Starting with a few political opinion pieces, since a lot of election retrospects have been going on, the Frank Rich piece in New York Magazine Fantasyland, Denial has poisoned the GOP and threatens the rest of the country too is a very partisan piece, that still manages to hit some interesting points. Media matters looks […]

Just Web Stuff Again

Just Stuff on the Web

The guys from Mythbusters talk about Under Your Skin: The First Sub-Dermal Implants Get Tested. Yep, you read that correctly. Devices you can’t drop. They talk to the researchers exploring the feasibility of interacting with implanted devices, and it looks very promising, though not as nice as an artistic tattoo. If you’re not comfortable with […]

It Takes All Kinds, and they’re all on the web

I spend time at The Oatmeal couple times a month. Was contemplating the AtheistCartoons.com. Some interesting points of view that are funny, but they aren’t… and remind me of several people. Ones like: gotcha! and the other ground zero. Pretty sure this video is one of the scariest things I’ve seen in a long time. […]

Siblings on the Web

Was talking to Steve about his "in the works" band site and I wondered… discounting social sites (LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace, Google+, Twitter, etc.) —how many times can I find my siblings through Google in the first couple of pages of results. Started with Fox Vernon, because I’ve assisted minutely on several of his and knew […]

Happy April Fool’s Day – A Few Web Examples :)

it’s a crazy ass world we survive in

One of the best tools for the blind (and people with other disabilities) is the free NVDA screen reader. I use it a lot in my testing for 508 compliancy, and recommend it to developers for testing. There isn’t another great free reader out there and competitors like JAWS cost from $895-1,095. Yet today, their […]

Reporting & Opinion-nation

The statistic that truly blows me away is that in Tennessee, only 33% of GOP primary voters think Barack Obama was born in the United States! A by-product of the drop in education, the refusal of so many to accept facts as facts (trumping them with opinions and very old religious teachings), and the purposefully […]

Latest Web Communities, Blogs and Other Stuff that Grabs Me

Interesting World We Live In

Information technology, instant connectivity, opinion overload, misinformation purposeful or snow-balled through social networking. Cook this, wear that, decorate this why don’t ya?, all thrown at you before the screen refreshes and moves on leaving you "so last minute". Some things stick, catch me enough to read in entirety, maybe even make it to a temporary […]

Just Stuff on the Web

Have to say I just loved this post about the dog who drives; Dog Takes Double-Decker Bus For A Spin. His owner says he’s going to change that break to make it harder… VroomGirls.com seems to be the only car site specifically targeting women. Car kits, kid schlepping, you name it, it’s here. I do […]

World Usability Day

Every day, thousands of new sites pop-up online. Many are opinions or talking points that really only have value in the moment, just like web site ad campaigns. Others are looking for new angles to bring users in to ultimately sell something or make money off the visits. Tons of them are political and/or religious […]
