An idea for United Airlines

I just got a link from United asking for my feedback on a recent flight. It so happens I have feedback. But first I had to answer questions I was unwilling to answer. So I decided just to post a note here. If they see it great, if not, no problem. The idea is about their wifi service. Show More Summary

I talked about the idea of a personal online nest in an earlier piece. Here's an example of an application. "Little Pork Chop" allows you to create a paragraph-length tweet, which it breaks up into 140-character packets that TwitterShow More Summary

45 short years ago today

Like everyone who was alive in the summer of 1969 I remember where I was when Neil and Buzz got out of the LEM and walked on the surface of the moon. I was 14 years old, on a trip with my summer camp to the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI. It was an amazing experience, in so many ways. Show More Summary

Three posts I just wrote on Facebook

1. Rex should read this post Mike wrote about cycling in Kansas. 2. Scoble is missing his calling. 3. The Facebook editor is dangerous to ideas! Including them here gets them into my RSS feed, much on-topic.

They're all scum, not just Comcast

I'm the last person to defend Comcast, but I just want to say that the behavior that Ryan Block documented in his taped conversation with them is industry standard. AOL and MSN both did it to me ten years ago when I wanted to cancel my accounts. Show More Summary

The requisite tease

Lately I've been working on software snacks. But there's some serious platform stuff coming too, soon. http://t.co/ByyWJU2P55

Why the name changed to thesaurus.land

Update: Thanks to my friend Sarah Pressler for showing me that my outliner thesaurus wasn't just a toy. She said: "OMG will use this all day long. Generally use thesuarus.com but it's so cluttered that I cringe every time." I realized how right she was. Show More Summary

People still want to know why?

I still get promos from the NYT

I am a NYT Digital Subscriber. I pay the money. Yet I still get promotions via email telling me about the special deals I can get if I act now! Interestingly I never get any promotions saying here are some cool things you can do with your NYT digital subscription. That's basic marketing. Citibike does it. Airlines do it. Why not the NYT? Don't they have any ideas for me?
