Just read a thought-provoking post over at the Public Bikes Blog. It definitely has me considering to ride more often not just because it’s a smart thing to do, but because it’s sometimes better to remove those things we are so accustomed to we don’t usually see. Here’s a snippet:

Brighthand: Samsung Epic 4G Full Review
My full review of the Samsung Epic 4G has gone live over at Brighthand. A pretty solid device for the most part, with only a few glaring issues that might be show stoppers for some (and not as often seen for others). As usual, there’s my additional dump of Epic 4G pics at Ovi Share. Enjoy.

Salt Water is Good For… *updated*
I took a trip to the beach yesterday, and while I had a great time, I got a few quick lessons on the fun of sand and salt.

Where Charlotte Can Become a Better Biking Region
It is really easy to sit here and say that Charlotte is a good/bad place to bike. I’ve had conversations with several people who bike, and several who don’t and would like to about some of the challenges related to biking. And all are pretty legitimate. After the time I’ve spent biking here, I think that I’ve figured out some ways in which Charlotte can improve things.

Carnival of the Mobilists 236
Just a headsup that the 236th Carnival of the Mobilists is now up over at MSearchGroove. As usual, there’s a great selection of pieces, including one from myself. Take a cup of coffee, read and enjoy.
Unfounded, Twitter-Fueled Nokia Speculation
It is well observed that I’m a fan of Nokia products. Not so much the devices, but the experiments and research items that come from them are the kinds of things which fuels all kinds of thinking and imaginations. More fuel was added to the fire today via a brief mention on Twitter, and for once, I’m anxious to see what will happen.

Could IBM Be the Model for A Mobile Future
I have been taking in a lot of mobile data recently. One article in particular has me thinking a bit more about the overall future of mobile as it relates to how mobile(-oriented) companies are approaching the near future.

Elephants: A Redesign of My Poetry Journals
I’ve been talking about needing a new experiment for some time, and my whiteboard is now chock full of things to get to cracking on. Of note, one of the things that was missing is the poetry compliation that I’ve neglected to get started for this year (May 2010 – June 2011). Well, that’s now rectified, and an experiment done to boot.

Are Full-Time Professionals Really Needed for Specality Gigs
One of the overriding things that I’ve seen since leaving college (2002) has been this idea that we need to be in, or be recruited for, full-time gigs. And while I can totally vouch for the stability of such a position when there are needs outside of yourself which are longer term, I wonder if the focus on full-time persons, versus companies looking at the reality of projects, endears them to miss on several well qualified people for specality projects?

A Picture of Priorities
Am in the midst of reading a [long] piece on the state of Washington (re:US Government as it functions in Washington DC) at Vanity Fair and just hit a paragraph that loosed the reins of a bro’s thinking to finding perspective and needed priority towards some of what I understand that happens in government today:

Explaining the Table of Mobiles
This past Saturday, I got a chance to connect with a few brothers and we had a moment that seems to only prop itself up when a few of us get together: a table of mobiles.
