… but we’re starting to see a number of Centennials that are very pertinent. This year it’s IBM and East Cleveland’s 100 birthday parties.
Next year Shaker heights, the City Club and the West Side Market will celebrate their Centennials. Here’s a great video IBM did. We’re gonna start doing senior interviews.

I hate it when green blobs are discovered in outer space!
The mathematics of beauty
Roger MacNamee on missing the boat – and not getting in on Google’s IPO. Thus begat the Facebook feeding frenzy.
Internet Radio rising. I want to mark a song I hear on the radio, come home and upload that list. Then when I’m ready to leave the crib, I want to download a playlist – of the moment – into my car.
PHPFog looks really interesting
I’ve been focusing on the history of the computer industry – as we’re going to set up a computer history museum at the LaunchHouse on Lee Rd. Hopefully the Virginia Marti school will help with the exhibit.

I’m having fun welcoming birthday best wishes – in r-t on Facebook.
Crazy person starts shooting people – gun sales increase.
Glock sales shot up 60% this week. The same thing happened after the Virginia Tech shootings.
I can’t express you how embarrassing and f*cked up this is.
These cowards hide behind the Bill of Rights – and arm gangsters – and crazy people and then fight against health care coverage!
And here’s Glenn Beck – showing what it takes to be an American and a Republican.

The hypocrites or the one’s who let them get away with it?
I’ve been a multimedia nerd for over 30 years now and I’ve been watching the evolution of real-time video calling, conferencing, narrowcasting, recording, storing, on-demand evolve.
Just today alone – in my Techmeme are:
– Google embedding video in Google Docs
– Salesforce buying DimDim
– Skype buying Qik
– Group video calling comes to xxxx
– and the on-going evolution of NetFlix, Hulu and YouTube.
This train is leaving the station. Most of the projects I’m involved in need embedded real-time video phone calls – inside the browser page. We need full open APIs into the namespace, full feature set and to be able to route and match any of our calling customers – together.
May the best service win – go – give it to us – immediately!
The last post of 2010 is also the first post of 2011. This is a pretty straight forward, simple explanation of our Digital City project.
