Google FeedBurner is Shutting Down… Eventually (and what to do about it)

At New Media Expo this past week I mentioned in my session that FeedBurner was my go-to solution for syndicating content to email (and for providing a fantastic way for people to subscribe to your feed via their own service).  After the session, I was approached in discussion by someone with some news.

Help Mitch Choose a Tablet

It’s come a time when I need to get a tablet to truly dive into developing for the mobile web.  I want to do a lot more HTML5 and mobile based sites, and list that as a skillset, but with only an iPhone, it’s sort of hard to do.  So, I want to poll the […]

Windows 8 and My (apparently) Contrarian View

Normally, I don’t deviate from web-specific discussions on this site, but I saw something yesterday that REALLY caught my eye: the new demo video for Windows 8.  Watch the video below (it’s ok – I can wait; it’s worth watching once) Done?

The GoDaddy Fiasco… And What You Can Do

If you have been following the Twitterverse today, no doubt you’ve seen the outrage by people who have seen the video of GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons shooting an elephant on camera (link here: I’m not surprised, honestly, but I think GoDaddy has a lot of other problems besides their CEO euthanizing elephants – they […]

A Digital Double Standard (Apple, Twitter, and the Net)

Note: I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with any of the things I talk about – this is just me putting information out there to think about, and you can make your own decisions about it.  You’re not sheep – I won’t treat you as such. Isn’t it ironic that we have a bit of a […]

Making the Switch to Linux

If you’ve been following me on Twitter lately, you may have noticed that I’ve nearly completely ditched Windows all together.  I wanted to see if (without missing a beat work-wise) I could switch my laptop over to Linux, and virtualize any pieces of the puzzle that I can’t do natively in Linux. After nearly a […]

Yahoo Publisher is going Away

I had signed up to test some ads on another blog with the Yahoo Publisher network.  I wasn’t too impressed, and took the ads down quickly, but kept the account, just in case. Well, today I got this email: Dear Publisher, Yahoo! continuously evaluates and prioritizes our products and services, in alignment with business goals […]
