I saw this on Daring Fireball.
Cabel Sasser tells the extraordinary story of Audion, the mac mp3 player that he was involved in creating.
Definitely worth a read.
I followed a link about this site, but didn’t actually get as far as reading the article it referred to because I was distracted by the whole concept behind the site.
I like it… and I’ve been meaning to write a few manifestos for some time now, so perhaps it will finally spur me into action.
Tom Smith pointed this out to me - and it probably now holds my record for the shortest time between me seeing something for the first time and buying it.
It lets you catalogue your books, dvds, games, etc, and best of all if you scan (or type in) the ISBN number, it looks the details up for you on Amazon. Better yet, if you’ve got an iSight you can use it to read the barcodes. How cool is that?
I haven’t even got an iSight yet, but I suspect I may have one soon…
I’ve switched things over that my new Drupal based site is live. For the time being you can find the old site at http://old.elegantchaos.com.
There are still quite a few things that I haven’t moved across - some because I haven’t got round to it, others because they are no longer relevant.
Completely coincidentally, Caroline & I also have to move house, which is a bit of a pain as I was planning on taking a couple of months off and so don’t actually know where I’ll be working next (hence where I need to move to!).
As a result of this move, I’m having a big clear-out of stuff. Have a look - you may well want something that I’m chucking out!
