Lessons from the Fall

Lessons from the Fall (of the I-Builders) The Industry Standard has collected a series of articles that examines the current plight of the I-Builders — IXL, March1st, Razorfish, Organic, et al. — once the wunderkinds of the industry, now known more for...

Coffee Notes from All Over

Despite my recent obsession with politics (I admit it… I’m pretty thoroughly tangled in the 2008 presidential race) I haven’t lost my bearings on the world of our favorite bean. Or, at least I hope I haven’t. Let’s get right to...

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.

A Turkey for Thanksgiving

They were supposed to deliver the holiday goods. Instead, Webvan lays an egg. CNET’s news.com reports that consumers have emptied Webvan’s shelves of the accoutrements for this Thanksgiving’s roast beast. The largest online grocer’s...

All the office is a stage…

I’ve been reading The Experience Economy: Work Is Theatre & Every Business A Stage by Joe Pine and Jim Gilmore. It’s proved to be a great read, and one that suggests that we are, all of us, in for some fundamental changes. As an improvisational actor...

P2P Paradigm?

“Peer-to-peer has been around for a long time, but it is now being recognized as the computing paradigm of the future,” said Albert Yu, senior vice president of the Intel Architecture Group. Not so fast, Mr. Yu. While a number of P2P applications have...

WinAmp Skins

Relevant to the new Netscape release, I have to wonder how many people use skins. And for what purpose? The earliest implementation of skins that I’m familiar with is Nullsoft’s WinAmp. By downloading skins, or interface overlays, you could change the look...

Too little too late?

Netscape Navigator 6 has shipped, after more than two years of development. In that development cycle, pretty much everything that comprised the prior version of the browser was scrapped and re-written. Which would make you think that this latest browser should be...

Our Own Puritan

I perform at Renaissance faires as a hobby. It’s escapism, certainly, but it’s also great interactive theatre — there’s no stage, no walls, no curtain — and the patrons become part of the acting company. Some of the very best actors at...

No help available here.

One more for the road…While I raved on Monday this week about just how nifty I found the wireless web, I have to note that for the last several days I have been utterly unable to connect. Instead of my minibrowser home page I receive a terse message that reads...

Be Heard.

Be heard. My wife and I prove the theory that opposites attract. As such, we often take a different view of things political. I won’t go into the details of who supports what… that’s not important here. Suffice it to say that we’ve often...

I’ve been WAPped

I’ve been WAPped.After reading one report after another about the adventures offered by WAP and mobile commerce in general, I decided it was time to get some first-hand experience. So, over the weekend I picked up a shiny new web-enabled PCS phone....

Busy, busy, busy…

Busy, busy, busy…I’m still populating the Articles area, most recently with a blast from the past, circa 1987 or so. I could claim that it represents something like an argument for customer experience… the fact is, though, it’s just for fun....

Decking the Halls

Decking the Halls While browsing my local pets superstore looking for — of all things — a costume for my golden retriever, I found myself picking my way through aisles strewn with half-emptied boxes of merchandise for the upcoming holiday season. While I...

Big Concept Department

Big Concept Department We all know that web sites do not exist in a vacuum� but imagine for a moment that they did. In your mind�s eye picture each site spinning in an inky void, some � the largest � like stars, while others form planets, moons,...

Happy Halloween.

In the office today there are a number of people who are dressed in Halloween costumes. There are at least two others that I thought were dressed in Halloween costumes, but I’ve since decided that no… they just dress that way. 😉

What’s in a name, part deux.

One intrepid reader (maybe the only reader) asks, “So what’s a bloggle?” A fair question. When naming this site I tried to convey it’s purpose, it’s attitude, and something about the atmosphere in which it lives. It’s purpose?...

What’s in a name?

Last week, after a three month effort, Anderson Consulting announced they’d settled on a new name… Accenture. [Rhymes with adventure.] The organization is planning to spend as much as $170 million in an aggressive global re-branding campaign....
