Today was a mixed bag; I enjoyed scheduling a release beta now that I can predict bugs, and got in some productive coding, but also pissed away quite a bit of time trying to install XP SP3. I did have a great ride, felt really strong, and joyfully setup my Tivo to record the Olympics, which as you know start tomorrow!
I love this ad from McCain, especially that great snippet from Hillary at the end: "I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience that he will bring to the White House, and Senator Obama has a speech he gave in 2002." Ouch! There is a serious side to this message; by showing that prominent Democrats think they can work with him, McCain is telling us he'll be able to get things done even if he has a Democratic Congress, which is very likely. Perhaps many of those Democrats would find it easier to work with McCain than Obama...
McCain and Obama both commented on Bambi, guess who said what:
Chris Anderson: thirteen words that lose their meaning when the denominator approaches infinity. "Here are five words that I would suggest are usually meaningless in a world where the populations we're talking about are limitless in size and diversity and doubling overnight (just add the word "blogs" after any of them and you'll see what I mean): Most, Average, Typical, All, None/No". It is an interesting point but I think it is dead wrong; just because you don't know the absolute quantity doesn't mean the ratio isn't meaningful. You can say "most blogs" and make a point without knowing how many blogs you're talking about...
Some interesting speculation: AppleTV could become a Real TV? There could be something to this; all the other speculation about Apple's forthcoming "product transition" has struck me as too lame to be true.
This could be from the Onion: Athiest finds image of nothing in his toast. I love it :)
