I haven’t posted here for awhile as I’ve been preparing for, and then starting, my sabbatical. While I will occasionally cross post here, those interested in following along over the next year should tune into http://lawolf.net/.
Last night I had a very strange dream….
I was in a large room doing a dry run for a PDC talk where I was code monkey-ing for Barack Obama. The organizers were expressing concern about low turnout since Barack had never given a PDC talk and they were considering swapping roles to have me headline with Barack code monkey-ing in order to increase turnout.
Wonder what’s been on my mind this month?
My favorite Facebook app (which has been one heck of a time sink) is scrabulous. It’s great to play scrabble as a disconnected game and Facebook has the perfect environment to mix this with your friends. However, I always wondered when Hasbro was going to take an axe to this brand-free effort. Turns out that after many months (and many, many users), Hasbro is trying to shut down Scrabulous. Hopefully they come to their senses and simply buy them out or license their brand (perhaps for a cut of the ad revenues)….
I’m very proud of my friend Sean. For as long as I can remember, Sean has been very passionate about the “social” aspects of computing, He has been living in India for the past few years, and was inspired to apply social computing to help India’s poor. And today Babajob received front page coverage in the International Herald Tribune. Congrats Sean!
Good work by my friend Jonah, check it out:
I was welcomed back to Seattle this evening by an amusing article that a friend of mine hit when searching for “Kenny Wolf”. If Time ever writes an article about me, I sure hope they don’t describe me as “something of a freak.”
Happy 2007 everyone!
Today I stumbled across the Christmas Price Index. For just under 19K you too can have lords and partridges and more. Fortunately all we need to acquire is ( 8! + 8 ) candles for the holidays 🙂
