Here are my weekly notes:
- Had fun celebrating a few friends’ birthdays yesterday – Happy Birthday to Janice, Andrew, and Jane! We started out at Laser Quest (I won the first round) and then nearly filled the Boston Pizza Lounge downtown. Good times!
- Al Gore thinks that Web 2.0 needs a purpose, and of course, that green should be the purpose. In a somewhat related story, Al Gore has joined Twitter!
- Sounds like the New York Times (NYT) is in financial trouble. It’ll be interesting to see how they cope with this situation.
- Told you netbooks were trendy – Walt Mossberg wrote about them this week. On Tuesday, the laptop turned 40 years old.
- One of my favorite apps now has a native app for the iPhone/iPod touch – Remember the Milk! So far I love it. You can find out more here.
- Flickr now has over 3 billion photos. Facebook is still the champ of course, with over 10 billion photos.
- Did you like the “hologram” that CNN debuted during their election night coverage? It apparently cost over $300,000. Don’t be fooled – it’s essentially a fancy green screen.
