More Treasure Found on Ocean Floor

By mwilson | Aug 4, 2011

A team of researchers trolling for sunken treasure in the Baltic sea came across a radar anomaly on the ocean floor which bears a vague resemblance to the Millenium Falcon. The team isn’t sure what the object is, nor does it have a directive to investigate further; even still it has received donations to fund [...]

Good Riddance 2009

By mwilson | Jan 4, 2010

Last year saw a lot of ups and downs. We started off watching the car industry with some disgust, questioning the culture of mediocrity that allowed the situation to spiral out of control. We say: Too big to fall? Too big to exist. Get on top of your credit and take control of your life. [...]

The East Wants In

photo credit: ccwen7 Trying to identify the exact point where you’ve peaked and begun to decline is easy in hindsight but impossible while you’re living it. There is a lot of talk about the end of the recession, but the actual recovery seems to differ from region to region. Kind of like peak oil, it [...]

Sweden, home of the pirates?

By dwilson | Apr 2, 2009

A new law came into effect yesterday in Sweden, which forces internet service providers to give up information about users on governmental request in order to track who is sharing files.  Apparently, internet traffic in Sweden immediately fell from 120gb a day to 80gb.  According to a spokesman from the Swedish Pirate Party – I’m [...]

Organic Wood

By mwilson | Feb 17, 2009

I cut my own firewood; every fall we go into the woods, cut down some of our trees, haul them out for splitting and stacking so they can dry out over the winter and next summer and be burned the next year. Since the wood is properly stacked and seasoned, the creosote deposits in my [...]

The Sad Digitization of the English language

By dwilson | Jan 22, 2009

I have commented in the past about the effects of new technologies on our daily lives.  Technological advancement and change have dramatically changed the way we understand the world around us and how we interact with it.  It has also changed how we interact with each other. Consider the the English language.  Terms like ‘google’ and ‘land [...]

Speed of Technology

Before I begin, I feel it is important to comment on our own recent trend – although Ignorant Mouth seems to suddenly be knocking technology, I assure you that this Luddite-ish event  is an unusual coincidence of similar ideas more than anything else.  That said, I am today discussing the rate of technological change and [...]

The Facebook Fanatics

By dwilson | Jan 11, 2009

Facebook is starting to scare me. I rarely log in anymore, myself, as the constant bombardment of applications and advertisements in the new layout are distasteful in my view.    Despite that, I still don’t like Facebook. People – why do you want complete strangers, or even friends of your friends that you don’t know, to [...]

Barack Obama’s plans for the web

By dwilson | Nov 28, 2008

It seems that Barack Obama has taken a quite novel approach for a politician with regards to his tech usage. Barack Obama’s campaign in the 2008 election made use of new techniques such as Facebook, Youtube, and emails in order to reach a broader portion of the electorate in new ways.  It would seem that [...]
