Having been tagged by Andy Beal, who was tagged by Mashable, I went to my sacred corner of the house where the incense cones, pieces of shells, gems and things my kids have made for me are gathered, and whipped out my crystal ball and sweetgrass. Not to be confused with the other of kind of “grass”. The kind I use chases away bad spirits, so I can focus. Okay, that was me, about 20 years ago. Now, I’m justRead more…

Seth Godin has written about his feelings about what’s happened to his ZList in a new blog post, Zlist update. He is “amazed, then delighted and then disturbed by the response“. I revisited the Squidoo Zlist, now prefaced with a new statement that reads, in part: Please don’t vote people down just because they’re above you in the rankings.

His intent is to help promote possibly undiscovered blog gems and introduce them. Very nice. There are millions of blogs. Sifting through them to find gold and diamondsRead more…

I was getting near the age where I could legally vote in my country, when Gerald Ford became President of the United States. I didn’t understand much. I remember reading about Nixon and Watergate in Newsweek. He was President for only 29 months, having taken over for Nixon in 1974. I had liked President Ford, mostly because he seemed so calm and I liked his smile. I was a teenager. Those things mattered. At the age of 93, he hasRead more…

Here’s an introduction that speaks to my periodic picking on “A-list” lists. Seth Godin writes “Worth a look! There is no A list, so there can’t be a Z list. There’s just good blogs.” I have to admit that as much as lists feel like a self indulgent ego-trip, they do help get the word out. They help you scan down a list of blogs to see what might be interesting. If you’re pruning your personal list of feeds, listsRead more…
