Can video games be art? Roger Ebert had declared that they couldn’t a fair number of years ago. Jeff Vogel weighed in on this topic and that lead to some discussion in my app.net stream about it. I think the answer to the question revolves around the relationship of the creator to an artwork […]
My friend Mary had asked me to talk a bit about Bitcoin. It turned out to be a more complex topic than I had realized. In this podcast I talk about what Bitcoin is, what are the advantages and disadvantages of it, and some of the more important aspects of it. I think the […]
In my quest to ditch Google in as many ways as possible, I have actually gone back to a company that I wrote off a long time ago. I still loath Microsoft software with a passion but I have come around on their services. When someone suggested I try out Office 365 I thought […]
My friend Mary wanted me to talk a little about Bitcoin. I’m going to start that by talking about money in general. There are some interesting things about money that are really important to understand if you want to know how something could be used as money. I’ll do a few more podcasts before […]

I am always on the lookout for what I consider the perfect charity. Most people want to know that the money they donate is used well, but few wonder what kind of negative effect their well intentioned donations can have.

I never thought I would see it. I never thought I’d see the eighth Doctor on TV. He was given one appearance on TV in 1995 in an American TV movie. He never got to be in an actual episode, many fans never really considered him a “real” Doctor. The irony of the situation […]
