Notes for 6/29/2008

Here are my weekly notes:

  • Went down to Red Deer today to visit Tom. Had a good time, though it was pretty darn hot sitting in the sun watching his soccer game. I dunno how they managed to keep running!
  • While in Red Deer I got the news that the Oilers traded Greene and Stoll to Los Angeles for Lubomir Visnovsky.
  • Friday was the last day at Microsoft as a full-time employee for Bill Gates. Of all the “goodbye Bill” articles I’ve read, I think this one by Anil Dash is one of the best.
  • ICANN is relaxing the rules about top-level domains (TLDs), which means a whole bunch more will join the familiar .com, .net, .org, and country domains. Unfortunately, with a price tag of over $100,000 it’ll only be big businesses that can afford to create their own TLD.
  • According to Gartner, there are now over 1 billion installed PCs worldwide. We should pass the next billion in 2014.
  • Sharon and I went to see Wall-E last night. Wasn’t my favorite Pixar movie, but it wasn’t my least favorite either. It’s pretty much as good as everyone says. My only complaint would be the live action videos which featured Fred Willard – they seemed out of place for an animated film. Especially one like Wall-E, in which the animation was so amazing!
