Fuck 2009, Hello 2010!


I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is ready for the new year! I certainly am!

I strongly recommend if you are in Denver to check out the Genghis Khan exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. It was really well done and their expedition health was really cool too. You got to take your heart rate, exercise heart rate, width and height, and a lot of other tests on this little card and print it out at the end. Really good for kids to understand how everything works. It was also sponsored by Kaiser Health (who is probably collecting all this info). They also let you take a snap shot of your face and they would age it and you could flip between different ages and see how UV exposure would affect you. I think it scared the shit out of some kids and they will be wearing heaps of sun block this summer.

My Predictions For 2010

1. I will switch to 100% Apple… Very likely, I do 90% of my work in FireFox and Firefox drags in Windows (even a fresh install of Windows 7) when you have tons of tabs open (10+). I don’t have this problem on my MacBook. Funny enough this is the reason I dumped Apple about 3 years ago.

2. I will buy an Apple Tablet. If the Apple Table actually exists.

3. Apple will make LCD playing cards and I will buy those as well.


Dual Screen Netbook


Kohjinsha’s-Dual-Screen-Netbook_2Check out this cool new netbook from Japan, it has two screens and it expands out! I’m going to try it out and see how well it works.

The Kohjinsha’s Dual Screen Netbook features two 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 resolution displays, when used together give you a total resolution of 2048 x 600. The Kohjinsha’s Dual Screen Netbook is powered by a 1.6GHz AMD



I increasingly believe that people fundamentally never change, and if they do its very rare or they just mellow a little. I find this kinda tragic.

And This Is Why I’m Starting To Hate Craigslist…


Just read this story over at TechCrunch, here is a quick summary:

Developers take note: if you’ve got a mashup built off of Craigslist’s data, don’t even think about showing it to anyone who works there. At least, that’s the lesson learned by developer Romy Maxwell, who says that Craigslist has blocked both his mashup and every single project built on Yahoo Pipes a few days after a friendly Email exchange he had with Craigslist founder Craig Newmark.

Hopefully this is all a big misunderstanding but I doubt it. Craigslist is a great idea that was made, has been a huge success, and has been left foundering for the last few years with zero new innovation. So much more could be done, alerts for when new items are posted, better searching, official support for mashups of housing on google maps, requiring people enter an address so the above works. All this would make it a much easier to use website.

I hope someone comes along and crushes them who has better features and an API.

This is bwb’s personal blog so he can share his thoughts with the world, however scary or silly they might be. Plus family and friends can track what I am up too, and where I am in the world.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And, I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And, we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
