miscellaneous topics

i'm caught between two platforms...

robotwisdom.com will blink out again
at the end of this month
unless another volunteer host turns up

i was appalled to learn that google

i've fallen in love with reCAPTCHA

the little boost of knowing
i'm proofing random texts

with geographic intelligence

(Monopoly relaunches this week
if you want to try it out

it may be a dark age for linkblogging
but it's interesting times for web 2.0
