Google turns to Answers.com

I think I first noticed this last week. Google‘s define link was linked to Answers.com instead of Dictionary.com at home. I was surprised with the change, but then the next day I noticed when I searched Google from work it still went to Dictionary.com. Figuring it was just an experiment I didn’t think much of […]

Save the Gizmos!

EFF has created the Endangered Gizmos list which lists technological innovations that are either Extinct, Endangered or Saved. They depict Hollywood and the record companies as poachers out to drive these innovations to extinction, or at least to neuter them, all for the sake of their bottom line.

Return of the Chimera

National Geographic is reporting about the controversy overAnimal-Human Hybrids or chimera’s. A lot of it sounds like mad science to me. The kind of stuff you expect Dr. Frankenstien to be involved in.

My Mother’s Music

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time now. I’ve posted all my mom’s music online! My mom’s name is Linda McKeeth, but my kids call her Mamma. My brothers and sisters and I all called my mom’s mom Mamma too. I think it comes from growing up in the south. There […]

I am nerdier then Chris

Chris Brandsma published his nerd score and I took it as a challenge. While we are both nerd king gods, I am nerdier then 4% more people then he is. 99% is something to be proud of, 100% would be scary. At least in my opinion. Since I am linking to a graphic on their […]

Chronicles of Narnia

When I was younger I really enjoyed C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. Well, it turns out they are making a series of movies out of them. Starting with the Lion and the Witch and the Wardrobe. There have been a few attempts at making these movies before, and those which I have seen were not […]
