Trying this software for an Autistic child with visual-motor issues. Anyone have any recommendations for other apps, launchers, or any software that has proven useful for children on the Autism spectrum?

My favorite obscure Erasure song. Doesn't everybody have one?

+Eric Zeman comment this AM reminded me about this time lapse I shot at Fossil Rim Wildlife Preserve here in TX. I should have shot it sideways, but it's still pretty fun.

Went to the Dallas Arboretum this weekend. When I checked into Foursquare, it noted I had been there 3 times. A yearly membership is $73, and a single visit costs $25, with parking (free with membership). So I bought a year pass.

This was probably the most useful Foursquare has ever been for me. I'd love to see them exploit this sort of information in the future. But they seem too hands-off with curation of places, and the places haven't bought in enough to manage their own check-ins.

The coolest piece of swag I've procured since I started at Samsung.

Think of the mobile carriers, in order of best network and customer service to worst. Now, reverse that order, and you have my experience since moving to Dallas. This is why it bugs me when techies make snap judgments about a network. They are speaking from their experience either in New York or San Francisco, or the few times a year when they travel to a convention with 100,000 other techies.

So, I've basically spent my day explaining to marketing people why a 41-megapixel camera on a phone is a fascinating solution to the oldest problem for cameraphones. Half the day explaining to newer folks what Symbian is.

Sometimes, the slightest comment can reveal a darkness that dwells in your soul. It's sad to see in a friend. I try not to hold grudges. I read recently, and I truly wish I remember where, that our brains are not a singular force representing our morals. They are more like a small crowd of people with decidedly different interests, all begging for your conscious attention. I always remember that when I think of someone like Mel Gibson. I think we all have that little, hateful being inside of us, and some of us, accidentally or through a weak will, let that piece take the microphone for a brief instant. But I don't think that sums up the totality of our being. This is why people deserve forgiveness.
