Sunday, Not Monday - Bonus Days

Fri, 02/09/2007 - 07:22 -- rprice

I am realizing a bit too late that if you have a monthly event, you need to standardize the date.

Any other dates/times/locations will inevitably be bonus events.

This month's Florida Creatives is in a different place on a different day - never again.

How does 3rd Monday at Crooked Bayou sound? We can build a relationship with that place, they seemed to like having us on a slow night. This means the next event is March 19th, right after St. Patty's Day.

Wii News Channel, iPhone, Multitouch

Sun, 01/28/2007 - 15:12 -- rprice

Yesterday, Nintendo released the Wii News Channel, which gives you a news interface and a world map showing where all the stories come from. What I think is different about this product is the fact that you're using the "Wiimote" (rhymes with "remote") to navigate through the interface. This video from YouTube demonstrates the interface:

This may be a small milestone for most bloggers or podasters, but you have to remember, we live in Orlando, people! Nobody in this town uses RSS, subscribes to podcasts or otherwise does anything "Web 2.0" worthy!

How many feeds? 483? 108?

Wed, 01/03/2007 - 22:01 -- rprice

I just read on Scoble's blog that he has read over 25,000 items on his Google Reader account (which he hasn't been using that long) across 483 feeds.

These are two massive statistics. I doubt I subscribe to 100 feeds. I'm sure that if his feeds weren't published as a "river", meaning all the items simply appear in chronological order, he would not be able to stomach so many feeds. Also, if there weren't a "Mark All As Read" button, he'd be screwed.
