As you can see, I’ve implemented a new WordPress theme on ye olde weblog.

It’s a custom-built layout, with a fair amount of typography from the open-source “Alibi” theme, supplemented with some fancy font faces from Google’s font api.

I think it looks cleaner and more modern. What’s your opinion?

I have been on verizon for over a decade now, and honestly, I have been pretty happy with them. Problem is that until now, their phones sucked. I had some thoughts of getting an iphone when they first came out, but they were way too expensive, and besides, AT&T is horrible.

But now, there is the Droid.

Just got it this morning, and I love it so far. The camera is better than my dedicated camera, the mp3 player is better than my dedicated mp3 player (pandora!) and the gps is better than my dedicated gps.

In fact, I’m writing this post from the Droid. It’s correcting my capitalization as I go. :)

Good work Google. And Motorola. And Verizon, for once.

This is a neat little mash-up.

Say you want to know what people in your geographic area have to say on a particular subject.

It’s trivially easy to find out with this map of tweets by subject.

Or, to be more clear, choose a geographic area using the Google map, and then type in a search term, and it will map out recent tweets that contain your phrase.

Try it out, it’s pretty fun, and could be useful.
