Taking advantage of TypePad's integration* of Facebook's "Like" button, you can now, well, "like" The Sew Weekly. Just click that little "like" button right above this blog's navigation bar. What will that do? If you're a Facebook user, you'll be able to see updates from this blog in your feed as well as giving me a better idea about who reads this blog.

The big thing that is keeping me from really using the ipad to it's fullest is the lack of google doc editing in Safari. I figured by now there would be an app that would allow for an elegant solution, but either that hasn't yet happened or I just don't know about it. With all that said, I was just running through tweets using Twitterific when I saw a tweet that linked to an open google doc. I was curious so I clicked it and Twitterific opened it in within its own browser. To my absolute shock, it remained editable.... Continue »

I am hated. Despised. Virtually spit upon. All because of my car. Yesterday morning I drove in to work (which I don't often do), and parked on the side street next to the office. This is the almost "free" street; it has 1 hour parking limit but they rarely check for it. After a long day at work I came back at dusk hoping I didn't have any parking tickets. Peering at my windshield as I approached the car it seemed like I didn't have just one ticket, I had a collection. Arriving at the car I found they were... Continue »

I love ancestry.com. Our families have been variously collecting bits and pieces of the family tree for years but now for the first time I'm able to unify everything (including Renee's family back to the 1600's) in one place. There's something very visceral about looking at the census page from 1910 and seeing your 1-year old grandfather's name. Love love ancestry.com. But there are some.... let's say amusing UI quirks. The basic object of information is a "fact" (not surprisingly, facts are very fungible the further back you go) and facts are classified by normal life events. Tonight I was... Continue »

I see the consummate iPad reading experience to be one that is, on the surface, traditional: heavily textual, quiet, hand-held. But lurking beneath the words is the whole Internet, ready to be questioned — “Find other works that quoted this,” “Where was the Marshalsea prison?”, “Which of my friends is also reading this?”, “What is that attractive person across from me reading?” None of that requires a publisher to “enhance” the e-book prior to publication. A truly modern e-reader is one that is intimately connected to the Web and allows a user to make queries as a series of asides,... Continue »
