*Still* loving the Olympics. I think NBC's coverage has been pretty good too. My favorite sportscasters have been Tara Lipinsky and Johnny Weir, but a lot of the others have been great too. I'm not really a fan of cross country skiing but you have to get excited listening to Chad Salmela. And I am a fan of speedskating (Go Oranje!) where Dan Jansen has been excellent.
Microsoft Office on iPad: It's alive and coming sooner than most think. An excellent idea for MobileSoft! (Are they reading my blog?) And most important with the advent of tablets...
Wow: Russian daredevils climb to the top of the Shanghai tower. Harrowing.
Bitcoin's amazingly bad but kind of great week. Among other things, Russia says Bitcoin should be avoided. Still, we're in the beta phase of digital currencies. This just doesn't feel like a fad... it is now possible to by Tulips with Bitcoin!
How cool is this? A fish controlling an electric car. A camera detects the direction in which the fish is swimming, and pattern recognition software causes the car to move in that direction. I'm going to say the fish looks like he's having fun :)
And speaking of awesome, check out Sakura, this little penguin chasing his zookeeper. Awwww... :)
