I’m all for new technology.
It’s just that, some concepts are plain weird.
For starters, both of us enjoy cute and petite technology. We both see the power in the small, but powerful.
Secondly, Raspberry Pi’s tag line; “Take a byte!” makes us think that they’re fans of SheBytes themselves.
Either way, the charity, Raspberry Pi has done something astounding. David Braben and the Raspberry Pi team have developed a USB stick, sized computer. If you think you misunderstood that last statement, read it again.
Nowhere else does a simple up or down arrow; a plain green or a red icon, have so much immediate force and presence in the human mind. It’s as if the entire world senses and perceives that tiny red down arrow, as a sign of impending doom, or as the very bringer of apocalypse (“the end of the world as we know it”).
Are you the type of person who only buys things when they’re on sale? Do you enjoy frequent hondeling? Do you savor the hunt more than the results?

Once in a blue moon, we have that subtle moment of revelation…
All the time; a multitude of ideas are flowing around us and right through us, but how rare is the occasion where we are able to hold that instant long enough to bring it out.
One man who certainly had the ability to hold onto that moment was Jim Henson. Henson is probably the world’s most famous puppeteer.
“Today’s Video Byte” is going to be a little different. Although it may seem regular, in that it begins with a video clip, this video in particular requires ample explanation and interpretation, so here we go:
Facebook is notorious for having really crappy “Privacy” settings…
There, I said it!
Every once in a while, someone comes up with an idea that allows us to kill a TREMENDOUS amount of time.
When my Dad was a kid, back in the late 60’s and early 70’s (sorry for that Dad), they had comic books and GI JOE’s. Today, for better or worse, we’ve made our way from the “life-like hair” of the GI JOE, and “Captain America’s shield” to FarmVille and Twitter feeds.
But my own time waster of choice is StumbleUpon.
