Well, New Years' Day has come to an end, and the 2013 Holiday Season with it ... so be it, tomorrow we are "back to normal".  Still, the bowls do continue for another week (!), so maybe we can keep acting like we're celebrating?

I know some of you have full Tivos with as-yet-unwatched bowls on them, so I won't comment on any of them yet, but there's been some great football, right?  And as you're sitting around with friends talking about it all, try these out: Fifteen of the strangest things that can legally happen in football.  Yes, it is possible to score one point! 

I think this is a bit exaggerated: This video will make you completely rethink your concept of time.  Not quite.  It does however put current time into perspective. 

Bruce Friedman thinks 23 and Me is an example of "Big Bang" market disruption, a la Clayton Christensen.  He might be right. 

An interesting story from Mat Honan of Wired: I, Glasshole, my year with Google Glass.  I'm about to be one myself - stay tuned! - and am eagerly anticipating the experience.  I think it's inevitable that some kind of wearable computer is going to replace cellphones as our everyday computing and communications devices, and this type of device is a good candidate.  Here's John Gruber's take, and here's M.G.Siegler's... 

So much of this is social convention; I can remember when people thought active Blackberry use was uncouth, but now everyone has their phone out all the time.  Maybe we'll all be wearing such devices in a few years, and nobody will think twice.

xkcd on New Years' Resolutions.  Yeah, but this year IS going to be different! 

Chris Dixon: Why I'm interested in Bitcoin.  Yeah, I guess that's why I'm interested too :)
