This world is upside down

Listen to Dick Cheney describe why we should not have to gone to Baghdad. This video from 1994 should have been replayed to the present administration before they (and I do mean "they") decided to go there this time.

SuperBad Press Goes Horribly Awry

I really want to believe that this this is real. No matter what, an immensely entertaining interview.

"How do you feel now that you've peaked?"

"Jonah, do you think it's important to be unattractive to be funny?"

Blue Dot Stealthily Reaches 1 Million Page Views Per Month!

I just learned (via Mike Koss on the Blue Dot blog) that Blue Dot has hit a key milestone, surpassing 1 million page views per month. A big "WHOOT!" to the folks over there who continue to keep their heads down and just make progress, despite a lot of drastic changes in the last year. The folks there are data driven and keep making interesting and intelligent changes to the service.

Keep it up BD Crew!

Architectural Masterpiece Now Open for Tours

The iconic “Glass House” by Philip Johnson has just been opened up for tours and I would LOVE to take a trip to check it out at some point. It might even give me a great excuse for seeing what that other coast of ours looks like.

Apple did a nice little piece on the technology and art direction behind the installations:

They’re already booked up into May 2008. Watch out New Canaan, CT, here I come!

Slide Show: Photos of Dad

I just wanted to see how easy it was to put one of the slide shows on the web. As it turns out, very easy...

The Digg Event for The Puget News

It's been a crazy couple of days. On Valentine's Day, a post on my other blog made it the front of, diverting mass amounts of traffic onto my hosting provider in San Francisco. Shortly after that happened, I received a call from some of the folks down there (right as I was about to head to lunch) and they assisted me in the installation of a wordpress caching plugin that kept things up and available while my site was being flooded with traffic. Thank you Laughing Squid! You guys are awesome.

Some cool stats/info from the event:
  • my digg post currently has 2,316 diggs
  • feedburner is showing that my blog has 900 subscribers (from low double-digits before - I wouldn't be surprised to find that this is an error).
  • technorati is saying I now have 33 links from 28 blogs
  • Check out my traffic graph for February. The scale completely flattened all of my prior traffic:

It is absolutely amazing the kind of traffic those digg guys can drive. If I can just find high-quality material once every few months and get this to happen, my blog will do great!

Did anybody notice today's "Google" logo? Doesn't it look like "Googe"? I did some very brief digging and found an obscure literary reference for Valentine's Day!
