  • Sarah Pullman of Yoga for Geeks was interviewed last week on CBC Radio.

  • "Digital cameras are consumable, disposable and perishable commodities like milk, film or gasoline."

  • "Watch Apple's Mac-versus-PC commercials online. They look so good for two reasons: 1) the white backdrop dramatically lowers the visual complexity of the frames, allowing room for carrying more visual detail of the actors in the allotted bandwidth, and; 2) those commercials are shot on 35 millimeter FILM then scanned into Final Cut Pro at better than HD resolution. It's a lot of work but the effort shows."

  • Nice visual representations of the relative sizes of planets and stars, including ours, via Dori and Tom.

  • The IBM PC turns 25 years old this week.

  • Effective blog title formulas that I rarely use.

  • "The only smart business model going forward is to write content so compelling to people that it doesn't matter whether you rank in the search engines or not."

  • "Most blogs make money through advertising. Advertising is pushy, unpleasant, slightly stinky, and not easy to control. Unless one is really famous and has a killer traffic, one usually doesn't have full control who can advertise on her site. Deep inside, we feel that advertising is a parasite way to make money."

  • I want one. With tint control, of course.
