Geekery (or, 1001 Bloggy Tales)

  • Never undestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes. (that's not actually a quote from the article, but you get the idea...)
  • Who's Whom Whop Whoa: If you're using OS X (I'm using 10.3, don't know if this works on earlier version), open up an iChat window, start typing a word, and then hit option-escape. Even cooler than the command-semicolon spell-check trick. Works with any Cocoa application. Try it in Safari...
  • From the department of no surprises: iChat AV 2.1 now supports video conferencing with Windows.
  • From the department of why didn't anyone think of this before: Synergy, a tiny little shareware app that puts a minimal set of iTunes controllers in the menu bar. Very quickly becomes indispensable, and it's cheap ($5), too!


Very interesting article from ACMQueue. Never realized that storage was outpacing bandwidth at such a tremendous pace.

Peter Jackson & Co. passing dailies around on iPods while filming the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy [via Slashdot] seems to implement Jim Gray's idea of mailing disks/storage/computers around the world.

Huh. That article was great. And terribly relevant to the sort of thoughts that have been bouncing around in my head recently. Hmm, thanks for posting it.
