talk talk talk Blog Looking Snazzy and Modern

talk talk talk — my original blog — has been looking sad and dated for way too long. I put updating it in my endless ToDo list.

Biofeedback, Technology, Blogging, and Fatigue

I'm getting an iPhone. Hopefully, this year; they’re a tad in demand. I made this decision after weeks of building problems and one particularly frustrating set of days. One big problem I have is that I can write on my iPod Touch within the white noise of the subway but cannot post my draft to […]

Blogging on Canada, The Coalition, and Harper

I’ve had one heck of a fun day, blogging and tweeting on the rapid political changes happening in Ottawa. The House of Commons has suddenly become a bloodbath, but instead of the red stuff coming out of the Liberals, it’s coming out of the Tories, with Prime Minister Stephen Harper ironically the lead butcher.

Blogging and Books, Two Different Kinds of Writing Life

This election has provided ample blogging material, what with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s peculiar secrecy and need to avoid engaging the Canadian public directly, Elizabeth May being in the debates for the first time, Stephane Dion finding his mojo (as Strombo put it), and Jack Layton being touted as having the best campaign of them […]
