Brain reaching capacity ;-)
I've got Chomsky in the brain...along with a lot of other linguistics stuff. These past few weeks I've been reading a lot about tech and non-tech issues that I have random thoughts on, but by the time I get to writing about them I could care less ;-)I think for the rest of the semester you'll probably see a lot of linguistics related posts as I continue to work on my classics research paper, psycholinguistics
Adieu, Live Spaces!
Just as we big farewell to Vox yesterday, it seems like Microsoft decided to pull the plug on Windows Live Spaces, their own version of a microblogging community that you could access with your windows live ID. If Windows Live users want to use a blogging service they will be redirected to WordPress since that's who Microsoft decided to forge a partnership with.Honestly I never really used the service,

What a crazy week!One month down...three more to go in this ultimate semester! I've kept off blogging mostly and consuming the content that I left on my Instapaper account instead so that it doesn't go stale. On the minus side, I've read so many interesting articles that sparked some ideas for commentaries that my starred items area in Instapaper is expanding - oh well. Hopefully in October I'll
The power of the network - random thoughts
I was listening to Leo Laporte on Twit the other day and he and Robert Scoble were talking about how great Twitter is (all hacking of the twitter homepage aside) when trying to find some information. You just throw out your query into the twittersphere (is that even a word?) and your followers will answer it.Well, this might work for celebrities, but does it work the the average-joe-twitterer? For
The other day I came across an interesting news report from the Australian news show dateline (click here to view video). The news segment was actually particularly interesting, because it's about 99 superheroes (alluding to the 99 names of God in Islam) from many diverse backgrounds that are fighting evil in the world (one of those evils I guess I religious fundamentalism).I highly recommend that
Περασμένα ναι, ξεχασμένα όχι
Ψςςςς!Πριν κάτι εβδομάδες είχα πάει στο σπίτι του πατέρα μου. Η αποστολή ήταν αποστολή καθαρισμού! Πήγα να καθαρίσω το παλιό μου δωμάτιο έτσι ώστε ο πατέρας μου να μπορεί να πετάξει το παλιό γραφείο και τις βιβλιοθήκες για
Well, I got this in my inbox the other day:Vox has been a fun place to explore, create and connect with your friends. But Vox is closing its doors on September 30, 2010.This doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to your blog. We want you to make sure you can keep the great content you’ve shared on Vox, and continue to have a home for your blog. To help you make the transition off of Vox, we’ve added
The Newton invades the iOS!!!
I've said this before, and I will say it again: the ingenuity of the Apple Newton community never ceases to amaze me! We've had the Einstein emulator for quite some time now on Windows and Mac (and some Linux-based PDAs), but not on the iPhone or any other iOS device.Now that is no longer an issue! Newton can run on iOS! There is of course the issue of slowness, but with a little optimization and
Bioshock - some thoughts (and Spoilers)
Last week I had the opportunity to finish off the original Bioshock. Having heard a lot about it when it first came out I borrowed the game from one of my friends. I have to say that this is the first game that really had me on the edge of my seat when I first started to play it - I avoided playing it at night or before bed because I would probably wake up in sweat thinking that a splicer
