A few Malcolmisms I don't want to forget: Instead of "What's for dinner?", Malcolm asks, "What kind of dinner, Mama?" Instead of "Go faster!", Malcolms says, "Mama! Go too fast!" When he would like to offer up his tummy for... Continue »

I spent last weekend at the XOXO festival in Portland, Oregon. I've been close friends with Andy Baio, one of the organizers for about a decade and he's talked about doing a conference for the past couple years so it... Continue »

A few years ago a web community I manage decided to have their meetup here in San Francisco. Every year the members vote on a city and so I was lucky SF won out. They’ve held them in cities like... Continue »

You probably didn’t notice this, but some of my posts here recently have taken on a theme. I am working through some ideas about how I am using my time, and behind the scenes I’ve been making a few changes.... Continue »

It's safe to bet against anything "meta."— Evan Williams (@ev) June 22, 2011 I have to admit I was a little surprised to see Twitter re-iterate what [Ryan Sarver had previously stated](http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/222045/twitter_clamps_down_on_client_apps.html) over a year ago. I thought everyone understood... Continue »

This weekend, I decided July 4th is my favorite holiday. What's not to love about a celebration of independence unencumbered by familial obligations or expectations and punctuated with fireworks, cook-outs, sitting on the beach, and hot dog eating contests. We... Continue »

Ok, so you love tech, or some aspect of it, and you decide to throw a conference to gather like-minded tech-lovers and people who want to learn from them. Maybe you want to make money from your event, maybe not--whatever.... Continue »

My mom's mom died when my mother was just four years old. She barely remembers her. This was a fact I often forgot when my mother was overly protective or when the punishment was too harsh for the crime or... Continue »

In the fall of 1994 at Oberlin College, I started the first chapter of Students for a Free Tibet. I had previously interned at the Internation Campaign for Tibet, and I went on to intern at Milerapa (the foundation Yauch... Continue »

Last year I came away from South by Southwest feeling inspired and ready to conquer the world. There were no limits to what we could all do. This year things were a tad grim, the free drinks were non-existent, the... Continue »

I’ve been thinking about ad networks a bit more. Ad Tech is this week and an [old co-worker](http://jonschreiber.org/photos/) stopped by my office and we ended up talking about them. Then [Justin](http://justinsomnia.org), another former co-worker at [Federated Media](http://federatedmedia.net/), posted [this discovery... Continue »

I've had this conversation several times, so I will blog it and hopefully never have it again, or have it go on forever, or both! Here are my iPad 3 thoughts: The screen is as fantastic as advertised, and considering... Continue »

It turns out that it is because one now lives with a two-foot-tall mad genius set designer and wardrobe director. Our remote control is currently lovingly wrapped in two thirds of a sheet of crumpled white paper, secured with a rubber band. The handkerchiefs are mostly in use as bulky diapers (folded and tucked by me, on demand -- "Diaper please") wrapped around the hind ends of toy cars. There is now always a full laundry basket at the foot of our bed, excellently positioned for tripping on and swearing at, because Jane is short and our bed is tall,... Continue »

A few weeks ago, standing at baggage claim with my family, I checked Twitter to see [Austin Kleon](http://austinkleon.com) mentioning me with a screenshot I didn’t recognize of [something I wrote here a bit ago](http://notes.torrez.org/2011/04/an-empathetic-plan.html). Quote from @torrez! RT @AdvanceUrSlides: A... Continue »

Welcome to my Wednesday thoughts! (Poor you.) Yet Another American Pie Movie Looking alive, number five! It's not a super shock that these movies keep coming out, since these are the biggest hit for most of these pie-humping actors. But,... Continue »

Here's my talk from Webstock last month (a conference I loved): I will say humbly that it's a good talk on important subjects I've been thinking about for the past several years, but I should explain my sheepish, low-energy delivery.... Continue »

Mat’s [post about Twitter making a tiny change to the way @ replies work](http://gizmodo.com/5889809/did-twitter-change-the-way-replies-work) reminds me of an idea I had. Someone please do it. Basically every night a set of scripts run that test whether all the things we... Continue »

The prevalence of free, open WiFi has made it rather easy for a WiFi eavesdropper to steal your identity cookie for the websites you visit while you're connected to that WiFi access point. This is something I talked about in Breaking the Web's Cookie Jar. It's difficult to fix without... Continue »

[Shigeru Miyamoto talks about Zelda, Mario, and…Toad](http://popwatch.ew.com/2012/02/10/shigeru-miyamoto-zelda/). I have an important question. Nintendo has also just released Mariokart 7 for the 3DS. In every iteration of Mariokart, I’ve always preferred to play as Toad. Who’s your favorite character? That’s the... Continue »
