Categories: Personal,

Believe me - I know the image in this post is of horrible quality, but what do you expect when the lights at Sofrito in NYC dim for a birthday celebration? Above you see my friend, Chris Aarons, enjoying the delightful serenading of the Sofrito waitstaff, accompanying a bowl of ice cream with a candle in it. Oh, except, it wasn’t his birthday at all. I was actually eating dinner at another table with my …

Alijah, Grandpa, Cancer Medicine, and a Donut

Categories: Alijah, Personal, Videos,

A few days ago I put up a video of Alijah and my Dad at the park. I liked how it showed a glimpse of the relationship that they had, even while having only a short amount of time to get to know each other. The next video I wanted to share was one that I think showed my Dad’s sense of humor, as he was even able to make light of his dying of …

Ever since my Dad, George Budabin, died of lung cancer back in December 2006, Monica and I had been kicking ourselves for not taking any video of him with our son Alijah. A couple of days ago, I was reorganizing everything I had in iPhoto just so that things would be better tagged and more findable, and I came across a few videos of Alijah and his grandfather that I had totally forgotten about. I …

Is Bebo using your AIM credentials behind your back?

Here’s an oddity for you - it seems that Internet site Bebo took control of the AIM account of Teresa Valdez Klein just long enough to send me an invitation to check out her Bebo profile. I immediately realized that she wasn’t even online, and even tried responding - to no avail! When I asked her about it, it turns out that while she was signing up for the service, she put in her AIM …

Scoble on Techmeme gaming, I’m still unexcited about the site

Categories: Blogging, Business,

My friend Robert Scoble put up a couple of Seesmic videos on how to reverse-engineer Techmeme. For anyone who doesn’t know, Techmeme is a fringe site that aggregates technology news from blogs. The more a story is talked about, the more likely it will appear on Techmeme. And the more authoritative the people talking about the story, the higher they will appear on the Techmeme home page. I watch both videos in their entirety, and enjoyed …

Here in Seattle, we have two major newspapers - The Seattle Times and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Todd Bishop writes about technology issues for the Seattle PI, and I’ve run into him a couple of times at a few technology conferences, and he also came to the first Seattle Mind Camp event that we put on. Heather Flanagan I met at the second Mind Camp event, and found her to be hilarious. We still look forward …

A few people were wondering why I’ve been quiet here on the blog for the last couple of months.

We should have it rolled out within the next two weeks, and the team that’s been working on it is very happy with the results. We think our readers are going to love it. Check …

Expression Engine 1.6 is Coming…

Posted by Andru Edwards
Categories: Blogging, Technology,

So, Expression Engine 1.6 is set to be released very soon, and it looks to be one of the most significant releases yet. We already manage multiple sites under one installation, but it is a bit of a hack (although, an easy one.) The new release brings about a Multiple Site Manager add-on, which we at Gear Live are more than ready to jump in to. In the meantime, we figured we would mess with …
