Anyone who has played a videogame with driving in it will appreciate this video. In it a scientifical test is run where two drivers attempt to drive a car with a third person camera mounted on the car. All the windows are blacked out so the drivers can only use the third person view.

One of the main principles that’s been hammered into me from lectures and experience over my 15+ years of computing is backup, backup, backup. It becomes even more crucial when you start hosting sites, especially sites for other people. On all the servers we run, we backup site and database files nightly, with automated syncs [...]

Check out the trailer for Collapse, a documentary that pinpoints how we’re on a precarious precipice and it’s up to us whether we fall or stand. There’s a few things I love about this video:
- Amazing disintegrating fonts.
- It’s a a “horror documentary”.
- Michael Ruppert – he’s like a film noir superhero journalist.
- “It’s not that Bernie Madoff was a pyramid scheme, the whole economy is a pyramid scheme” [a great quote]

If you don’t already know, I am a huge fan of the superb science-fiction show Battlestar Galactica. I am also a huge fan of the social voting site reddit. While browsing through the latest stories this morning, I came across this comment about Battlestar Galactica in reverse. Simply put, it adds a whole new level [...]

Ignorance is Strength. -from 1984 by George Orwell While browsing reddit.com this morning, I came across a link to an op-ed piece in the Washington Times by none other than internet expert John McCain. In the article, John makes a legitimate argument that the internet must remain free and [...]

In the you can’t make this stuff up category, check out what happened right as I clicked to read about how AT&T stated its network is fine in the mobile Google Reader site on my iPhone. Yeah, umm, AT&T your network is not fine.
