I know I’m posting a lot of these acquisition notices lately, but it’s not for want of traffic. This is for honest curiousity.
Actually, it leans much more towards the “WTF” end of the pendulum swing.

Google has bought Panoramio. I have to admit that this doesn’t come as a huge surprise — this is something that Google really needed in their world.
For those of you unfamiliar with Panoramio, I strongly recommend you check them out. It’s a neat service, providing the ability for people to geo-locate photographs based on Google Maps’ API. And the stuff comes out in Google Earth, too!

A little morning humour for you all. This had me chuckling heartily for a couple of minutes.
Google in 20 years. (Warning: Some objectionable language, but when you’ve lost your keys, I’m sure you’ve said the same things.)
Not me, for the record, some other guy.

Andre’s got good stuff again. I’d love to know where he finds this.

(Oh, I’m just dying to see what links to this article because of that title!)
No, this is not about copying the Star Wars movies. So if that’s what you’re looking for, please look elsewhere. This is about two great movies trilogies.

Tonight was the wake for Rich. It was a chance for those who knew him to get together and remember the life he led, to share in his memory, and spend one last time collectively in his presence.
How do you say goodbye to a friend? To someone who has become a part of your life?

A few months ago, friend and colleague Rich contracted large cell lymphoma, a rather nasty form of cancer (see [[Go Rich, Go!]]). There was a massive upwelling of support from the company and its staff (especially those of us who knew Rich well) — we wanted to see him better, to return to Critical Mass.
Yesterday, after a hard battle, Rich passed away.
