…or at least annoyed me today.
I’m new to this “Web 2.0″:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0 thing, but I’ve been getting up to speed over the last few weeks. To do so, I got hooked into Flickr, del.icio.us, and Technorati among others. More on all that later.
I’ve also been “a bit busy at work”:http://evdb.com/blog/, too, so I wasn’t able to get back to Technorati for a week or two. When I did this morning, I found that (like usual) I’d forgotten the username and password I’d used. The usual suspects didn’t do the trick, so I popped my e-mail address into the Forgot Password link like a good little user and proceeded to Gmail to get enlightened.
That’s when it all started going wrong.
If you can read this, then it means the creation of the new Tech sub-blog is complete. It’s alive! _fiendish cackle_
For the naming challenged I present the Institute for Naming Children Humanely.” You might laugh, but have you been checking on celebrity baby names lately? It’s a sad, scary state of affairs.
This may sound like something out of a “Snopes entry”:http://www.snopes.com/politics/arts/pbs.asp, but it looks like the House is actually looking to “cut all funding for NPR and PBS”:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/06/09/AR2005060902283.html over the next two years.
If that angers you as much as it does me, then consider signing the “MoveOn petition telling Congress to save NPR and PBS”:http://www.moveon.org/publicbroadcasting/.
As the girl in the Midwest with East Coast time (doesn’t make sense to me either), I get to be the first one to wish kk a happy,happy, happy birthday!
By the way, this shows up third on Google if you search “Happy Birthday Karen.”
