Standing by your work

I've included a number of Grazr plugins on the blog now, each featuring the RSS feeds for content I produce at work. This blurs the line between personal and business a bit, but for those of you who are interested in what I'm up to these days, it should make it a bit easier.

The Word of the Day is just that - a tech term or concept that we send out using email every day, along with featuring it on the Web site. I compose and edit the Buzzword newsletter and write, record, edit and produce the Tech Buzzword of the Week podcast. Most of the time, that's all reasonably fun and interesting.

I'm blogging, albeit in a downright 1996 kind of way (reverse chronological posts on a static web page, handcoded in HTML with no comments, trackback, tags or any of the other wizbang improvements that have cropped up over the past decade.)

Even so, that's what I'm up to most days, though I still find some time to indulge my love for fishing, fine cooking, cycling, hiking and consuming slightly absurd amounts of printed and digital media.

Looks like I'm headed to Cold Spring, New York this weekend.

Much excitement.

Here's a map of Stonecrop, provided courtesy of Wikimapia.

I'm officially a Wikimapian, I suppose. I've now added two entries to the mashup of Google Maps and wiki technology, leaving the Isles of Shoals weeks ago as well.

I haven't made my first Wikipedia entry yet, though I have successfully fought and won a copyright battle on the behalf of my company, posting notice of the clear infringement to the community. The experience was quite an education, on all counts.

This map really belongs on Rich Planty Goodness and, however, not this rather barebones blog.

If that blog's proprietor digs it, in fact, he is more than welcome to grab the script from the source code of this post and use it on his blog and send it to the Stonecrop webmaster.

50 acres of gardens to wander through, contemplating the astonishing varierty of morphologies and adaption displayed by nature p and nurtured carefully by the hands of humans - sounds like a much needed antidote, even a panacea for my present immersion in the 24/7/365 beat of the online ecosytem of MMPORGs, discussion groups, email lists, Web sites, chat rooms, webcasts, podcast, vlogs, cable news, on-demand movies, MUDs and the other virtual worlds that in general skew wonderfully close to the metaverse.

Relevant pictures

I finally negotiated the connection between my MDA and my laptop this evening, transferring some 102 photos and one .mp4 from the mobile device. The picture quality is average at best, but given my issues this summer with endlessly reformatting memory cards, I'm grateful to have them at all.

Even with the time stamps and nagging quality issues, I'm glad to have the record.

Enjoy the show. Family and friends will likely appreciate the scenery more than most.
