Is it bigger than a breadbox?
Go play 20 Questions. I've only tried it once so far (a very busy server today due to a mention on a popular site) and perhaps I was too easy on it, but it guessed correctly. Score one for the A.I.

Okay...
...maybe I am paranoid. Now turn that camera off. Now. I mean it...really...

Smile?
Is it just me, or does it seem that just about every major news event in recent memory has been captured on some sort of video or surveillance camera? Often as itís happening and, frequently, not just once, but repeatedly and from different perspectives. Does this bother you? Do you ever wonder how many times your image has been recorded in the past week in the pursuit of your daily activities? When did all this start to happen? What does it all mean? Iím not paranoid, but it makes me wonder.

Very Orisinal

Iím sure you were all on the edge of your seats during last Thursdayís presentation of the Webby Awards. You werenít? Well neither was I actually, but itís always kind of interesting to see the nominated sites. Many are familiar names, of course, but every once in a while, one leaps out at you and you wonder, ďWhy havenít I seen that one before?Ē

 

The ďleaperĒ for me this year was a games site called Orisinal. Not for you hardcore white-knuckle gamers, Iím afraid. Rather, itís fairly quiet and contemplative, almost Asian in feel. The games, by turn cute, mischievous and quirky, are beautifully rendered Flash animations. No banner ads, no pop-up ads, just a quiet place to while away a little quality time on the Internet. Take a look.

Failed prognostication

Okay, okay, I give up. Not a drop of rain fell here yesterday as far as I can tell, despite the aforementioned ďlooming clouds.Ē This morning, a brief shower brought back the smug smile for a bit, but now the sun is out and things are looking pretty darned pleasant. Lesson is, I guess, never bet against the sun, weather forecasters notwithstanding. I should be happy, I know. Itís a beautiful Sunday afternoon. And, for all I know, it may have rained all weekend up at the lake. You know, Iíll just bet it did.

Willie, here, is both the mascot and the arbiter of good taste for this site... So, as you might expect, people will be offended. My apologies.
