On Tweets in the Library of Congress

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Published my first opinion piece on CNN.com today, in which I argue it’s a great thing that the Library of Congress is archiving billions of public tweets. Despite some parentheses trouble and unclickable URLs in the story (I’ve alerted my editor), I’m proud of how the piece came out, even though CNN.com commenters seem to think tweets are a waste of storage space. Thanks to @matty_g, @Jason_Pollock, @Swiftsfan,...

My Interview on The Pipeline

My Interview on The Pipeline

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Almost every interview I do these days for podcasts or magazines involves the inevitable question: “What are your best productivity tricks?” That’s why it was so refreshing to do an interview with Dan Benjamin on his excellent show, The Pipeline, and never have to answer that question. Instead Dan wanted to chat about my progression from a day coder and no-name night blogger back in 2001 to a “pro blogger,”...

How Google Changed the Game in 2009

How Google Changed the Game in 2009

This past year was a watershed moment for the real-time web, cloud computing, and mobile application development, thanks in large part to Google. This morning over at Lifehacker, I rounded up the biggest Google product releases and updates of 2009. I may co-host a weekly podcast dedicated to Google news, but seeing the amount of mind-bending stuff Google released this year in one place still blew my mind. While Google’s three biggest launches of the year–Wave, Chromium OS,...

Distraction-free writing with PyRoom

Distraction-free writing with PyRoom

In other words, it can be a smart and snappy thesaurus/dictionary/translator/anagram tool. Wolfram Alpha’s own blog toots its own language skills horn a bit, but for good reason. If you’ve ever been stuck trying to fill out a trio of words ending in “ation,” looking for the transliteration of...

Best Journaling Tool? [Hive Five Call For Contenders]
