Seeing the future?

JR points to EPIC 2014.  The short video is an amazing, but totally plausible, vision of the future of where all of this blogging, iPodding, citizen reporting, marketing thing might be headed.  The story of how the vision came to be is here.

To my knuckle-headed friends.

Update:  This post was published prematurely.  I started the post and then ‘filed it’ for later editing, or so I thought.  I was fully expecting to come back to it later in the day and then put it up on Sunday.  Oh well…   I can’t take it down now… I’ll just add on to it over [...]

To my knuckle-headed friends.

Mathew Gross suggests I should: “…Pass this one on to all your knuckle-headed FoxNews-watching friends.”  Well here you go. Matt points to David Corn’s transcript of today’s testimony by former CIA case officer James Marcinkowski before the Senate Democratic Policy Council about the effect of the Valerie Plame outing within the spook community… and beyond. “Understandable to [...]

Upon returning home

Yeah, we’re back.  We left out of Orlando around 6:30p Wednesday after the Wreckers final game (which they lost).  During that game Jesse made a wonderful outfield catch so he was pumped up all the way home – we finally arrived on Cypress Street around 3:00a yesterday.  All in all, a great trip. I got [...]

Two dreams on hold

Apparently NASA isn’t going to fit the shuttle launch into our schedule.  Bummer. And on the baseball front, The Wreckers lost yesterday.  It is some kind of law of physics that when a team’s pitcher walks the first five batters in the top of the first – stuff just starts rolling downhill from there. After giving [...]

A Cinderella story…?

I haven’t told you the whole story about the Gate City Wreckers AAU baseball team.  Their record coming into the national championship was 0-19.  As in… they pretty much stunk as a team all season.  But none of that means anything now. The Wreckers received their national playoff bid on the strength of last fall’s undefeated [...]

The Wreckers kick it off

We spent all day yesterday at Disney’s Wide World of Sports getting the Gate City Wreckers registered for their tournament which starts today.  One of the greatest things about The Wreckers is their diversity.  Although many teams we have encountered both here in Florida and during previous outings have a token white player on an [...]

Yost to Hawaii

Talk about your high-dollar, investigative reporting… this just in from ‘Ali G’ in the comments to this post… “… in case you haven’t heard, (Rhino Times reporter) Scott Yost is in Hawaii, much to the surprise of Bruce and Paul, documenting their every move. The Hammer boys were generous enough, it appears, to send Scott on an [...]

Developing story?

Update 7/16:  This post no longer makes sense because the mis-identified picture has been taken down by the N&R.  The question stll stands about Whitfield’s candidacy, however. ************ From my first read of this morning’s N&R website…. In order to woo the female vote in his upcoming bid for County Commissioner, Ed Whitfield has transformed [...]

We’re not going away NASA… fix it and launch it.

Yeah, well… whatever….  go ahead and scrub the launch, and just see if we care.   If it goes off between now and next Wednesday we’ll be there.  In the meantime,we’ll just have to find a way to tough it out somehow.  I just hope I will not be forced to choose between watching Jesse’s [...]
