Well, that’s the last jaw harp I buy before Googling.

New York man granted U.S. patent for “facilitating construction of a snowman/snowwoman”. Who says the system is broken?…

@nthmost @rickabruzzo I was totally expecting that to be a McGurk effect thing.

No Radio Unpronounceable today. No A/C in studio. It is HOT… like, 82° out there.

@jnnamcky Sounds like premature home button failure. A lot going around. Take it in and they’ll probably replace it.…

So, I’m guessing the Delicious redesign was NOT done by Tantek Çelik. And the bookmarklet update wasn’t done by someone who’d ever used it.

Chicken John wrote a book. And I built him a website. And I think I like it. –

Fun game for central Asian music videos on YouTube: hat or gigantic afro?

@tooluser Hey, I’m putting your review of Chicken’s book on the website. Should I credit you as “Joshua Marker, cognitive scientist”?

@outofsequences I knew you’d come around.

Mark it. When did I say I have a lot of work to do? Website accomplished.

I’ve finally amassed enough web design experience to know exactly what I can’t do.

Last year, today, I was exploring a very very old cemetery in Prague. Titles & tags still missing. Such is life.…

What a fun day this has been; radio show, dinner with large group of friends at Chez Poulet. So. Much. Work to catch up on.

@chickenjohn I have some experience in Wikipedia. And in editing your Wikipedia article, in fact.
