I published this post almost 6 years ago and it is consistently my top post on my blog in terms of traffic. 393 unique views in the last month alone.
Shel Israel recently interviewed the Democratic Alliance’s leader, Helen Zille. It is a pretty interesting interview and sheds light on the DA’s social media strategy.
“These simple steps will put you on the path to a superhuman memory” … love that!
I had yet another minor altercation with mall security over my tendency to take photos of places that appeal to me yesterday. I was at the The Zone @ Rosebank yesterday and was told I can’t take photos without permission.
I was tempted to have yet another rant on my blog about it but really didn’t have the energy for yet another bitch about not being able to take photos in a mall. Instead I went to the Zone’s Facebook page and published a post recounting my experience and asking why I can’t take my little photos.
I am waiting for a reply. I wonder what, if any, I’ll receive.
I’ve been using Instapaper to send articles to my Kindle DX to read when I have a chance (the result is a personalized magazine or newspaper). It is a terrific service and a great way to keep up with all that reading I don’t have time for as I stumble across the Web. I’ve been using the Instapaper app on my iPhone since I got it and Instapaper has just gotten even better for me.
Instapaper has made Macworld’s 26th Annual Editors’ Choice Awards, a very short list (especially if you don’t count products from Apple) and a very high honor.
Thanks, Macworld editors. This is truly awesome.
Everyone else: You should really read Macworld (the magazine or the website). It’s one of only a very small handful of tech publications that’s actually good and professionally written.
I found some of this group’s music on iTunes and it is practically sublime … I already had and loved a couple tracks I got off ccMixter but this stuff I got today is inspiring!
