Five reasons why Pownce > Twitter

After initially dissing it, I'm drinking the Pownce Kool-Aid. Is it the end-all, be-all? No, and it has a long way to go. But it's actually come in very useful. Here are 5 reasons why it kicks Twitter's ass:

1. Files. A co-worker asked me to review two web sites in development and post the results for the rest of the work crew to see. I clicked both links via IM, did screen shots and posted them for the rest of the group to view. Done and done.

2. It's not about profiles, bands whoring themselves, pictures or number of friends. 'Nuff said.

3. Matt Mayers says it's better. Matt's a young techie/programmer/anime guy in our office. He doesn't cheerlead Web 2.0 stuff unless it works and is cool. And anyone knows after watching failed programming languages that it's the techs are the ones that have to embrace them. It's not the only key to success but availability of code and community developing in that code typically is your first step to success.

4. Groups. If I want to group, say, co-workers together, I can do that and share files with just co-workers, or create another group to share pr0n mp3s other stuff with.

5. How often do you get to deny JesusChrist as a friend but still keep him as a fan?

P.S. I have a few invites left. Email me if you'd like one - first come, first serve!

Charlottesville, Skinheads, White Supremacists, Trump and Idiocy

I'm having a lot of emotions about what took place in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. None of them are good or positive for the direction of the United States. The GOP rode a media whore, a second rate TV "star", and lifelong con artist to the White House to help advance their agenda -- of which they have no idea how to implement.

The biggest problem is, Trump is a well documented racist that tries to help legitimize FOX News and Alex Jones and every racist thing in between. What these media properties all know is that a) division works and b) some people of faith will believe anything. Trump pushed the Obama birther theory, he declined housing to African Americans and he employs employed a racist in former Breitbart employee Steve Bannon. I'm not going to get into his circus of racists on staff including Gorka and Miller, because they aren't worth the words.
I have a lot of conservative friends that voted DRUMPF with hopes he'd bust up Washington. An…

How to Rick Roll Someone

I've noticed a lot of traffic to my blog from a post I did on Rick Roll. In particular, people are looking for how to do it. So, without further adieu, here's a quick 1, 2, 3 on "How to Rick Roll Someone."

Pick your target. This should be someone not suspecting a peculiar link, email or heads up. Works great if you're the guy/girl in the office known for sending YouTube links via IM
Grab the URL. The YouTube video is probably the easiest to snag, because the URL isn't a dead giveaway. Sites that truncate URLs like SnipURL and TinyURL are handy if you want to send folks to
Pick your delivery method and send! IM, email, blog (wink!), what-have-you.

Please, feel free to get creative. Our programmers used a "Can someone test this site?" email to the office to Rick Roll the entire staff. Or better yet - send the URL along to unsuspecting family members as "Our newest family pictures!".

Another fun way is via conference or phon…
