Lessons from live blogging with Azure (nothing bad happened)
I wrote previously about how I built a "live blog" app in Azure, so we could use it for PointBuzz during last week's festivities at Cedar Point. Not surprisingly, it worked just fine. As I expected, the whole thing was kind of overkill. Sweet...
A year of remote working
[Note: I originally posted this on my personal blog , but it occurs to me that it’s likely something of general interest to software developers. -J] Today is my last day working for Humana, after about a year. One of the initial considerations in taking...
Google AdSense: You suck
Like a lot of Web publishers, I depend pretty heavily on AdSense to generate revenue and pay the bills. A good server isn't free. So imagine my horror when, on Thursday, the numbers dropped between 50 and 80%, depending on the site. Something is horribly...
MySpace killed MySpace. Duh.
(This is a repost from my personal blog , but I figure the audience here is also, if not more, appropriate.) I don't usually read anything that Robert Scoble says, because he's about as relevant to technology as my cats are, but the High Scalability blog...
Twitter sucks and must be run by amateurs
I can't say that I've ever known any kind of Web-based service to suck as much as Twitter, yet be as simple and popular. It really boggles the mind. As just a regular user, it can be annoying enough with the constant outages and failures. As a developer...

It sounds like something to write in a one year anniversary post, but I have to say that I get slightly annoyed at what people say Microsoft is. It's the typical news story and blog comment noise, and I probably shouldn't care, but it still annoys me...

Calacanis wrote a rant about Facebook that causes me to question his credibility. Seriously, is he a lucky entrepreneur or just full of it half of the time? Like many "pundits" in the tech field, he tends to jump into the fray with whatever fashionable...
The animated featured content box: Critical design issues
I saw this post from Ken Cox about his displeasure with the preview of the new VB developer site, specifically the animated box at the bottom. You've seen these before on a million different sites, where a number of featured content items are previewed...
Twitter: I begrudgingly get it
More than two years ago, I made a post on here about how I didn't get Twitter. It's one of the most popular posts I've ever made for some reason, which perhaps I'm not proud of. I been meaning to follow up on that for, well, at least a year, because obviously...
Caught in a flesh storm, with a 90% chance of satisfaction
This makes me laugh, in light of tech pundits who overstate the importance of Twitter. The Colbert Report Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c Jeff Goldblum Will Be Missed www.colbertnation.com Colbert Report Full Episodes Political Humor Jeff Goldblum The Colbert...
