Recently elsewhere

In fairly short order I have become quite the distended blogger: from a near-complete publishing slate in this space, I now have six different locations online where my words and pictures appear.

Much as been said elsewhere about the potentially excess fragmentation of the online space, so I won't go into that here. Rather than fight it, I've embraced multiple services for their individual advantages. As for blogging, well, I now have this blog and a work blog and a kid blog, so here we are.

My del.icio.us link exporter seems to have stopped working again, which provides me with an opportunity to do what others have done and cull the links, blog posts and errata from elsewhere into a single post. I'll try and do this once a week if not more.

  • The consumer cost of the iPhone on AIAIO. Contrary to popular belief, I am not automatically following the Apple Pied Piper and buying a new phone next month.
  • UX in the world of food, also on AIAIO, from a few weeks ago.
  • Let's see how this works: some choice tweets from recent days....
    • The pleasure of working from home is sorely mitigated by the looming specter of changing a poop diaper after completing a conference call (link)
    • new baby: permanent answer to the question "what should I do with my free time" (link)
    • How hot is it out? So hot my dog would rather hold it in than go for a walk (link)
  • From my del.icio.us feed: Obama clinches nomination; Clinton seeks VP spot—Let me take a moment away from paternity leave to celebrate America's color-blind selection of a bright, progressive politician as one of our two main Presidential candidates
  • 2572430352_f13c17044c_t.jpgAnd then, of course, there's Nate. I've got an early update on him on his own blog, and lots of photos on display, deliberately separated from this space for obvious reasons. There's also a large mass of Nathan photos in my Flickr feed, which is newborn nirvana for folks who like that kind of thing. The kid's fun: stop by.
