Wikipedia and Bin Laden

Sun, 05/01/2011 - 23:01 -- rprice

At 10:30 or so last night, I was on a phone call with Mike Anello and Earl, another coworker, when Mike tells us that the President is coming on TV for a special announcement in a few minutes.

I'm like, "the President of the United States?"

I searched Google News - nothing seemed to be there yet. Twitter was exploding with it, confirming what Mike believed the announcement was about: Osama Bin Laden had been killed, and the President was going to tell us on Live TV.

Setting up your own Etherpad site... in short, you don't have to

Fri, 04/08/2011 - 18:50 -- rprice

Some time ago, I heard about a company that was acquired by Google that had created some software called EtherPad. If you ask me, this is how Google Wave or Google Docs should have been done. You can see the updates in real-time, everyone's changes are tracked, you can save revisions, you can chat with other collaborators, and it even uses wiki-style red links, so that when you click on a link to a page that doesn't exist, a new one gets created. It's all the best things about wikis, documents and IRC.

BarCamp can be a lot more in Orlando

Fri, 04/01/2011 - 21:19 -- rprice

This is something I have been trying to articulate since the first BarCamp Orlando almost 4 years ago. The whole idea behind FooCamp and its bastard offspring BarCamp was to use Open Space Technology to create order in chaos. Our events have had both order and chaos, but the order is not ordered toward much of anything productive. Some people have started new events to achieve this: I think our BarCamp can be better on its own, but these other purposeful events wouldn't be bad either.
