On second thoughts, I’m not very convinced at all that Google’s AdSense is any sort of business model for this blog. Ads needs loads of people. Whereas self-describing Smart Disorganized Individuals are probably rare as hen’s teeth. Not only that, but after casually glancing at some of the ads so far, I don’t think they’re […]
Dave Winer’s podcast of May 21st has a good discussion of his coming OPML outliner, an example of what he’s calling an “Idea processor”. What does he want? Extreme easiness. Cool!
SdiDesk Wiki: DifferentBrowserRequest Could SdiDesk open links to external sites in another browser rather than IE? I’m sure it could, but it’s not so straightforward. Some experiments to be done.

What’s up with that? Well, I’m a “portfolio worker” (read, under-employed). I have a regular part-time job, teaching programming in […]

Joel Spolsky’s Project Aardvark gives Fog Creek’s student temps a chance to build a product from scratch in four weeks. They’re making a video too.
Well, that’s not too bad. Only a year and five months since the first post 😉 But now, SDI the blog is being resurected from hibernation … just as SdiDesk 0.2.2 is released. Watch this space … (but you can talk quietly amongst yourselves while you’re waiting.)
