Second half: pretty amazing
Difference? 2000 miles, thousands of dollars, lake vs. ocean, freezing vs. mild, endings vs. beginnings
In other news: A little bit of blogging--MEGO, 1-800-Roosevelt, California Scheming--here and there, as the year winds down. Can't say I'm sorry to see this one go.

Lots of new blog posts this week. My Eyes Glaze Over continues to be where the action is, with more thoughts on Amazon's Kindle and Facebook's missteps; my Punk Planet blog saw an update on the sorry state of music at Stanford; 1-800-Roosevelt gets the usual updates, including the man's Amazon wishlist for those that care; and even California Scheming gets in a holiday mood with a broken set of Christmas lights that can be yours on the cheap!

Lots of new stuff, starting with some housecleaning on this site. A couple ancient bits of writing are off the main page, now in a new sidebar called "where I used to write." Let's face it, those letters to Bush aren't coming back, and I never did find a reason to enjoy Twitter, so those two are confined to the electronic dustbin. Or something.
New writing in My Eyes Glaze Over and in Punk Planet. New photos, as always, in 1-800-Roosevelt. A new Geek Tour is formulating in my head, don't you worry. But Craigslist has gotten worryingly bland--I'm sure the start of holiday shopping will change all that--so don't hold your breath on a new California Scheming in the next week.

The only update of note is in MEGO, which has a lengthy discussion of Amazon's new Kindle e-book. Also lots of new pictures of my son in 1-800-Roosevelt, as always. Also of note, the always reliable Paul Davis drops the bomb on Razor over in the Battlestar Galactica blog, What the Frakk, additional comments by yours truly. Once this holiday week is up, things return to normalcy for a while so hopefully more updates then!

Plenty of new writing: The death of a visionary celebrated at Punk Planet, a brief look at Google's OpenSocial in MEGO, plenty of cuteness (including halloween--don't miss the whale costume) in 1-800-Roosevelt, and a couple new ads in California Scheming. Enjoy!

New writing up this week in Punk Planet, in MEGO, in California Scheming, and of course more photos at the kid blog.
But that's not all! Because four active blogs aren't enough, I'm happy to announce the start of Geek Tours--it's opinionated sight-seeing around the nerdiest corners of Silicon Valley. This week's entry stars a very oddly named restaurant in the heart of Apple's campus. That site's still a work in progress, but you get a map as a sidebar, so hey, that's new!.

Posts all over the place this week--the ubiquitous (albeit cute) photos of Roosevelt (video this time too) lead the pack, like always, but also two posts in MEGO, one in California Scheming, and--believe it or not--even one over at Punk Planet, which actually expands on the previous paragraph here and talks about, among other things, burning my hand on a soldering iron.

Much of the blog action fell on the shoulders of young Roosevelt this week, with 1-800-Roosevelt seeing multiple updates a day thanks in part to learning how to hook my cell phone up to the blog--all sorts of excitement just floats right in out of the air now. My Eyes Glaze Over also saw an update this week, a brief discussion of the New York Times decision to end TimesSelect. And California Scheming also got some love, with a couple new Craigslist ads, including one racist children's book for sale.
