The Unanswered Question, The Answered Perception

Being that it was just Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer in the US, I took the time to be like many and get on the road a bit. What was supposed to be two cities in three days has turned into four cities in five. Lots of driving, and therefore people and questions about me and what I do abound.

Thoughts on Disruptive Technologies

Moving to a new device has also had the benefit of having me think again about disruptive technologies and how that factors into use, thought, and future-things. I’ll admit that I have been intrigued by the ideas behind Nenya lately (wearable computing sits as something I’d like to explore more), but its probably Nokia’s statements towards MeeGo being used for disruptive technologies that’s anchored some of my more recent thoughts.

Thoughts on Evolving my Mobile Web Server Use

Thoughts on Mobile Web Server Evolutions - Share on OviHaving moved to a new device (the Nokia N8), I am facing the reality that my use of (any) mobile web server might be over. Such a realization isn’t well received on my end, and last night, I spent some time in Tactilis thinking about where I’ve been with this concept of a mobile web server, and what an evolution would look like for me.

Upgrades and Future Storage Handling

N8 + 32GB USB Memory Key =Two Meanings - Share on OviAt the time of writing, I’m in the process of combining the contents of 2GB and 8GB microSDHC cards with the content from my N97’s 32GB mass storage area onto a single 32GB card. As far as I can recall, it will be the first time in a few years that I would have centralized my local storage needs. And I’m finding that both the choice to do this (upgrade) and where I’ll go in the future (access) have to be taken a bit more deliberately.

Project Aura: A Bicycle Lighting System

Person riding bike demonstrating Project Aura Bicycle Lighting System, via Core77Given that its Bike to Work Week during Biking Month, I should probably be posting a bit more towards biking and what I’m doing. But to be honest, I’ve not done much at all on my bike lately. It has been a hard restart to riding this year, partially because of my bike’s location of being no where near those kinds of places that I would usually ride. That, and the slightly pressing travel schedule have pushed biking further to the edge of my life than I’d really like it to be. And yet, there’s a glimmer of light that I’ll get back on, and that innovations like the Project Aura Bike Lighting System could push me out there just a bit more.

TVs, Voice Recognition, and the Futures of an Older Generation

Morning Moments in Mount Hermon - Share on OviI’ll try and write this without sounding condescending, but I’ve been told by a few folks older than me (by double my age or so) that I have a way of making the things that sound exciting to them sound less than exciting and quite “un-wowing.” I won’t apologize for living in a state where that particular group of persons older than me are realizing and seeing become real in their lives, but will respect the fact that to them, what looks like the future isn’t what it looks like to me.
