Fifteen People You'll See At Every Nerd Convention. (Which one am I? Uh, top row center, duh.)

Oh, hey, I have access to Google+ Games. I wonder how long that has been there. Anything worth playing?

Pretty much everything Mike Masnick writes is great, but this one is particularly good and thought-provoking. Well worth a read if you are still wondering how content-creators will succeed in the the new digital world.

Good thoughts!
6 ways tech news writing can add value

1. Be the first people hear about something from
2. Explain how something works or what something means particularly well
3. Put things in a helpful context, like a historical context or a particular perspective that's valuable to read about
4. Synthesize other people's perspectives on something well
5. Be funny.
6. Point out how information can be used by readers in their own lives.

I think online news should always strive to add at least one of those types of value. I think it too often fails to do so. What other types of value do you think can be added when writing about tech news?

A very good in-depth article on the Swartz case. Makes the whole thing even more questionable, imo.

You might think you know cat videos, but you've never seen a cat video like this. (from a friend of a friend).

Sums it up pretty well, sadly.

Good write up from Comic Con, mentions my panel heavily. Worth a read.

It's kind of embarrassing how perfectly this video and Chuck Klosterman article speak to me. We really are nothing more than a specific demographic, aren't we. ;)
