Thanks Scoble, it's all your fault.
So, my venetian blinds are broken on my sliding door at the new apartment. It’s clearly Robert Scoble’s fault. Thanks Robert. After I realized that, I thought about what else Robert has screwed up for me over the years. Here’s just a partial list. - My fish “Hear” and “Here” named after Pluggd technology died before I moved to Seattle. Thanks Scoble....

Why I go By Drew
My parents still call me Andrew, and I hated the nickname Andy. Always. I labeled myself Drew in my teen years. I felt like a Drew. I thought I looked like a Drew. I have emerged into a Drew. When my dad calls me Andrew, sometimes it doesn’t register. I’m used to Drew now. Before I was legally changing my name to Awesomesauce, I was thinking of changing it to Drew. I sign...

Space station’s sole toilet out of order. Ain’t that a bitch. So like what do they do? Liquid drano would simply float away. Who clogged it up? What did they eat? How embarassing. UPDATE: Fortunately, the solid waste collecting part is functioning normally. Whew.
Crowdshaping - Definition
Crowdshaping - The act of reshuffling a gathering of people at a media event to downplay or accentuate certain demographics for the purpose of sending a particular message. Michelle Obama’s staff was caught crowdshaping at a recent Carnegie-Mellon appearance. In fact, one coordinator was even heard to say, “We need more white people here!” (via urban dictionary)

Crowdshaping - A dangerous trend
Trend - The general direction in which something tends to move. I’ve been watching this particular trend for about a year now, and it troubles me personally. I’m going to write a series of posts on the topic in the next few weeks. Think Social Engineering, but worse. More soon on Crowdshaping on the web.

The following is pure conjecture, and is backed up by zero journalistic evidence. Microsoft, Microsoft, Microsoft. We love to hate you so. You’ve done some things right, especially in the business world. But online and with the consumers who will drive your company into the future at the top? Not so much. Bill Gates was your golden child. He’s on his way out. No matter what...

Give me Quality or Give me Death
The web is a funny thing. Stay stagnant too long, and you’re over. Innovate too fast, and lose focus. So what are we to do? I guess it’s different for everyone, but I’ve learned to go by the mantra “Quality over Quantity.” Cliche, isn’t it? Not cliche enough, since it’s a small minority who actually practices that. Let me explain. You’re a blogger,...
Music and Me
I heard about this today, the New American Music Union by American Eagles Outfitters, and it made me think about music. I absolutely love music. It makes me happy, it makes me focused, it keeps me in the zone, it sets me free when I need to be. Whenever things aren’t going so well and I’m bummed or stressed, for some reason the music goes by the wayside. It’s almost as if I...

Weekend At Barry's (Cafe)
This is partly inspired by Alex’s self documented near burnout situation. I’ve been there, buddy. Unplug and do it now. I know better than anyone that you have to work, and work a lot. It’s how we do. But there comes a point where you have to stop the madness. That’s where Barry comes in. As you may know, I recently moved to a new place. Up the street is a cool...
