Created for those in email groups that need to collaborate better, Knotable (pr. note-able) will take over the thread, clear out the repetitive nonsense and previous replies, then set your post into the queue. Others can then vote it up and down or it can even get removed if a...

I Went to New York with Google Glass. No One Hates Them Here…

You might have heard the hate issues associated with Google Glass. Well I would like to tell you my story of how someone either put me down or caused physical violence – but I can’t. And I went to one of the most populated areas in the world. I thought for sure with my recent trip to New York I would get a hater, an accausting of, or at least a “can you please take those off?” Yet all I got was the same questions people in my city would ask. When I arrived in NYC (and after attending part...

The Changing YouTube – Trolls Beware!

I am officially a Google Helpouts mentor. You can ask me questions not only about Podcasting, but also help with Wirecast. Last night’s TWIGG was awesome collection of news. We talked about XE11, surgeons on Glass and more. I have officially moved TWIGG to its own YouTube channel – you can now find at youtube.com/thisweekinglass . Was in Tucson last week for Techonomy13.

T-shirts are great stocking stuffers!...

There Is Help

A treatment center for internet addiction has opened near Seattle. The story is in the Guardian. I wasn’t going to mention it until I started reading the comments; some of them are priceless. My favorite comment: I wonder whether they offer the counseling courses online….

Back from the Shadows Again

I returned yesterday evening from three days and two nights of almost no innertubes or cell phone. I was staying in a hotel that I’ve used many times. The ethernet connection in the room did not work. We tried two computers and two cables and nada. Because of the nature of the family business I was there to conduct, I decided it wasn’t worth the effort to change rooms. (There was wireless in the lobby.) In addition, my cell carrier’s local tower was apparently having issues. There was unbroken coverage a few miles away in either direction. (On my way...

Reuters reports that a real estate agent who had registered the domain name, thejaylenoshow dot com, violated comedian Jay Leno’s “common law” right to his own name, according to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a United Nations agency. The story is here. The agent used the domain name to direct web users to a real estate site. An excerpt: Furthermore, real estate agent Zambrano did not have any legitimate rights to the disputed web address and had registered it in “bad faith,” according to the ruling by William Towns, an independent arbitrator appointed by the Geneva-based agency. I suspect...

iDell?
