Real-life Firefox

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

To Celebrate the arrival of Firefox 2.0, I’m presenting a photo I took of the real-life Firefox.

Congratulations, Firefox team!

T seats

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

As often the case, I sat on one of those ripped-up-and-hackishly-patched seats on the MBTA Red Line this morning.

I’m at work now, sticking to my seat, thanks to the duct-tape residue.

Straw poll: Javascript and your browser…

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

Recently, I have been wondering about people’s stances with regards to the dependence of Javascript on the Internet at large — and for web apps in particular.

  1. Do you have Javascript enabled by default in your browser?
  2. If not, why?
  3. Also, if you do not, do you selectively enable it for particular sites?
  4. Has the “ajaxification” of the ‘Net changed your opinion on Javascript?
  5. Do you consider yourself a power-user of computers? (Rank yourself on a scale of 10, with 10 being expert)
  6. Do you consider yourself a Web power user/viewer?
  7. What browser do you use?

This is a totally unscientific questionnaire, but it still should have interesting results (provided people leave comments)…

Boston sunset

A few of us went to take photos after the Summit one evening of the Boston. Here’s a cliché sunset shot.

Be sure to check out my Flickr page for other recent pictures too.

The Nokia 770

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

I never realized how cool the Nokia 770 is until the Boston Summit. Tuomas and Andreas were both using their 770s and I was impressed. The screen is really amazing — 800 pixels wide is awesome for a portable Web browser.

It also has a basic sketch program, and, as you can see, Andreas has made excellent use of it.
