Man overboard!

I’ve packed my bags and moved everything here to my new blog on Tumblr: http://jruck.us.

I’ll post more on the logistics of moving an 8-year-old blog and all its content and comments from WordPress to Tumblr soon, which is actually a little harder than it sounds given Tumblr’s API limitations.

But in the meantime, help me in bidding farewell to the sometimes-buggy-but-usually-loveable WordPress site that first introduced me to the joys of blogging and building websites: Centripetal Notion.

Anyway enough of that, subscribe to my new feed already, or just follow me on Tumblr if that’s your thing.

Catch you on the flip side.

Kevin Rose & Tim Ferriss are fun to watch

Somehow I got sucked into watching this. Kevin Rose of Digg & Tim Ferriss of The Four Hour Work Week have started recording videos together, talking about everything from startups to nutrition, travel, technology, culture, etc.

They’ve started calling the series “Random” which is just about the same as not having a name at all. But who needs a name when the conversation is as good as this. Two insanely smart, motivated guys sharing their insights about nothing and everything in particular.

I’ve embedded all, or at least most, of the videos below. From what I can tell there’s not currently any streamlined way of following or subscribing to the series, so I swiped these embeds from Kevin’s blog.

Watch the most recent episode at least, to see if it’s a good fit for your brain. I hope they keep at it.

The future of information in 2019, as seen by Microsoft

Don’t let the word “Microsoft” scare you, this video shows some extremely well thought-out concepts. Plenty of multi-touch, e-ink, semantic data, telepresence and cloud computing to go around.

You can watch expanded clips at the end of the video embedded above, or watch the full-length version at the blog linked below.
