When you are about to create, do you grab your laptop or iPad first?

I'll have to check it out, since I have an iCloud account that I don't use yet :) and it just might prove very useful.

Some interesting thoughts from Shawn Blanc regarding the phrase "consuming content". http://shawnblanc.net/2011/08/consuming-content/

I disagree and think that the phrase fits well in the time we live on. Often the separate definitions of two words do not add up to the whole they make when put together. More here: http://chrisbowler.com/journal/consuming-content

Since the news hit that LinkedIn had opted in millions of users to have their details spread to advertisers, I've seen a lot of folks in my Twitter stream leaving the application. Or, at least, closing their account since you can't actually delete it. Others have changed the privacy settings but kept their accounts open.

Then I read the following tweet: http://twitter.com/#!/jasongraphix/status/101680237510791168

I understand the sentiment, but would defend my own decision to close my account on LinkedIn. My defense: the realization that I have never once derived any benefit from the application. Never. once.

What have I received from LinkedIn? Invites to connect from people I've never heard of, let alone met. The occasional spammy recruiter reaching out to me. That's about it. The rest of my usage has been like any other social based web app — I connect my account to the people I know. But I never used the service in any way.

It's not a knee jerk reaction, but simply a reduction in the junk email I have to deal with.
Changed my LinkedIn privacy settings (you should too: http://jgx.me/az) and resisting the knee-jerk urge to close my account.

LinkedIn has been useless since I created my account.

Yesterday's news about Steve Jobs' resignation as CEO, followed by John Gruber's excellent post on the subject, got me thinking of how much John himself is a part of my Apple experience. Some thoughts on John here: http://chrisbowler.com/journal/and-gruber

When I finally purchased my first Mac, I was already a reader of John's site. So when I purchased and installed NetNewsWire, my first third party Mac app, it was so natural to see Daring Fireball already included. John's a part of the Mac eco-system. Hopefully, he keeps doing what he's doing.

He'd better. You better not be on to something with this train of thought.

Story
Introduction
I love Christ, my family, and my church. I believe in living a life of simplicity to support others and to reduce the negative effects of a culture based on consumption.

I also believe in internet advertising that is relevant, stylish and that benefits everyone — the reader, the advertiser, and the publisher. That's our goal at Fusion Ads.
