Scott Rafer: Garbage 2.0 In, Garbage 2.0 Out

March 13, 2006

Garbage 2.0 In, Garbage 2.0 Out: “

The programmable web (aka Web 2.0) is a fascinating and dangerous place. WINKsite’s founder Dave Harper just noticed what should be a cool new mashup — and is instead a perpetuation of the misdeeds of others. Mobilicious [screenshots here] is a reasonably well-executed mashup of the delicious API and Google Mobile Search. The problem is that Google Mobile Search trashes every mobile site on the planet while violating our copyrights for good measure. Mobilicious integrates these copyright violations with delicious and passes the problems along.

Dave Harper: An Open Letter to Google: “Page adapted for mobile phone?” Please stop now, you are crippling sites, not adapting pages.

An Open Letter to Google: “Page adapted for mobile phone?” Please stop now, you are crippling sites, not adapting pages.: “

Dear Google,

I just used Google on various mobile devices (i.e. a Nokia 6600, Sony w800E, and Motorola RAZR V3) to search for my service Rather than link to WINKsite directly the results instead link to a reformatted version that in Google’s words is ‘adapted for mobile phone’.

Driver killed in rollover crash

March 6, 2006

During my early morning work this morning I had the opportunity to drive by this location three times. It was not a pretty sight.

Driver killed in rollover crash: “PARKER’- The driver of a pickup truck was killed during Monday’s commute when his truck overturned.”

(Via Top Stories.)

A tale of two coffee shops.

March 3, 2006

The tail of two Coffee Shops.

Earlier this afternoon I spent an hour in Fluid Coffee Bar in town and now I’m in a Starbucks near Centennial Airport. Night and day difference. No free wi-fi in the neighbourhood here at Starbucks. Fluid had nearly a dozen available wi-fi signals availalble in and around the shop. Starbucks has a premium on available electrical outlets in this location. Fluid has power strips available to plug in your laptop so you don’t run out of battery. Nice place. Coffee and sweet eat offerings are pretty much the same.
