This is a major WTF with the new Cuil search engine.  I have no idea who this guy is, but his picture instead of mine shows up for one of the Cuil search results.  That is very retarded Cuil. I’ll be checking out your sight again never.

A few weeks ago I read Cory Doctorow’s latest novel entitled Little Brother and was impressed enough with the book to add it to the required reading list for both my classes at Georgetown (Information Warfare and Security and Introduction to Information Privacy). Little Brother introduces us to a group of teenagers who become concerned […]

Like many other technologists, I’ve been following the launch of Google Knol closely and finally had a chance this evening to create a couple of entries.  As someone in the knowledge and intelligence business I’m having a hard time seeing the value in the product thus far.  A couple of immediate reactions. 1)  As Jason […]

I have three ReadyNAS devices.  In general, I’ve been very happy with them, but there is a power supply issue that has resulted in all three devices failing.  The first two failed prior to the NetGear purchase and my support requests were responded to quickly and replacement parts were sent for self-installation.  The new parts, […]

Wired is running a fantastic article about the 25th anniversary of the movie WarGames, which is arguably one of the most influential movies of my generation and certainly the most influential within the Generation X technology clique. As noted this interview conducted with me in the year 2000, I had a WarGames poster in my […]

There is a lot of speculation today about an Apple tablet on the horizon, which is a product many of us have been predicting for quite some time now.  I’d say it is very likely we’ll see some sort of tablet device this quarter at highly incentivized prices (based on Apple’s earnings call the other […]

As expected, I got my hands on an iPhone 3G last week.   After one week of use, I thought I offer up some first reactions: First off, this is a beautifully engineered device.  The form factor is very similar to the 1st generation iPhone, but they’ve added a bit of polish with the glossy backing.  […]
