A wild and wacky day, whew.  Roller coaster.  Many things in progress.  Working ten threads in parallel.  Give me the courage to change the things I can, the serenity to accept the things I cannot, and the wisdom to know the difference!

Coachella: 3 days of Music, Mayhem, and Amazing Spectacle.  Ah man, I wish I could have gone.  Just would have been so fun.  These are the kinds of things, in the wake of getting hit by a car, that I'm trying to do, instead of not do.  Maybe next year... 

So, I see this week HIM are playing at the House of Blues in San Diego, on Thursday night.  HIM!  Do you even know how great they are?  (If not, you must immediately seek them out and listen; they are awesome...)  Hey, I want to go... 

Dave Winer: What comes after location?  His answer, a vector, as in applications which know which way you're moving as well as where you are.  A lot of GPS apps already do this; my Sprint phone's nav app does, for example... 

Salon points out Good glasses make wine taste better.  At first you might think this isn't true, it is marketing hype, but I've done head-to-head comparisons and I've convinced myself it is true.  Give me a nice Reidel Burgundy glass for my Sea Smoke, please. 

Hitler in the news; as you know, YouTube pundits have long had a field day with that final scene from Downfall, where Hitler learns that he's going to lose.  It's subtitled already, and all you have to do is change the subtitles for brilliant parody.  And so know the company that owns the rights to that movie are issuing takedown notices!  How silly / tone-deaf / stupid of them, and not to mention, this sort of excerpt totally falls within fair use.  Here's a meta-parody, Hitler tries a DMCA takedown :)
