Blurb from site: "We're talking about good health and bad health. We're talking about nutrition and technology that can help us play longer and harder. We're talking health gadgets and gear. We're talking about what makes our minds and bodies tick and how can we affect that ticking? And we're talking about what's affecting us whether we like it or not."
A topical news blog. This is my first attempt at blogging and it's take some time but I am slowly finding a consistent voice. I like it. Tell me what you think.

Big Things in America
This is mostly a followup to this, where I asked people to suggest big things for me to visit. I spent July visiting some of them. Here they are.

laundryroom swapmeet
I live in an apartment building. We have a laundry room. The laundry room has a table. People put things on the table, and other people take those things away later.

It's a laundry room swapmeet. I take pictures of the things and write about them. Hilarity more-or-less ensues.

The Tangled Web of Syriana
A Visio diagram of Syriana's complex plot. Syriana is an espionage thriller involving Big Oil, the US Government, and the Middle East. The events in the film are fictional, but only barely so. This couldn't come at a more appropriate time, as Bob Barnes (played by George Clooney) seeks safe passage into Lebanon through the help of Hezbollah.

Click survey
I want to find out where people click on on this sample painting. Try it out, your click will be saved, and you'll be able to see the patterns that emerged from other clicks so far. The more people click, the better the results, I imagine.

The Claymore Project
33 years of Super bowl commercials collected to the delight of ad students, researches and general ad geeks everywhere. From 1969 to 2006. From Farah Fawcett creaming up Joe Namath in '73, to dancing bears, herding cats and Apple's 1984 vision. We've exhausted our colleague contacts to find all of these ads. We need your help to complete this collection - anyone who created ads for the superbowl way-back-when (production, ad agency, client) please submit your work. PS - its Quicktime. As usual, anyone who submits their work (commercials), be it old or new, gets a free upgrade - it's how the place works. Non super bowl work wanted too.

24-Hour International Blogathon
After a two-year hiatus, I'm finally back at the helm of the Blogathon. When we began in 2001, we found ourselves constantly explaining what exactly it was that we did. Now there are blogathons everywhere. The concept is simple: choose a charity, collect sponsorships, and on July 29, beginning at 6am Pacific, update your blog every 30 minutes for 24 hours. Signups opened today. The site is all-new, and we'll be adding more snazzy features as the date draws closer. Stay up late, make a difference.

The Dewey Donation System:
Since 2003, readers of have donated hundreds of books and thousands of dollars to libraries and others in need through her annual book drive. This year, pamie joined forces with Glark of Television Without Pity (whose readers donated over thirty thousand dollars to help buy school supplies for children displaced by Hurricane Katrina through TWoP's Tubey's Kids program), to send books to several libraries in Harrison County, MI which were devastated by Katrina. There are some very moving letters from the librarians posted in the blog. I'm promoting them whenever possible and running a book drive for the site at my office.

Snacksby: A Recipe Site
I got tired of not being able to tell a cooking site "Hey! I've got two onions, 4 eggs, a loaf of bread and some mayo. What can I make?", so I made one that would listen. Snacksby can learn about substitutions and new measurements, and since it's after 1997 it's got things like tagging and rating (and rounded borders!)

Weather Log
This my entry in yesterday's RailsDay contest. It fetches weather forecasts for your zip code and gives you a place to record the real data from your thermometer, rain gauge, etc. It also graphs your data for you. There was a few more features I wanted to add, but I only had 24 hours, you know?

Currently, it's primarily useful for Windows users, though many of the open-source applications listed also run under Linux or Mac OS X. Comments and suggestions for improvement are especially invited.

Ride For Them
Ok. So ostensibly this is a fundraiser. But it is one that I'm particularly proud of because it has brought together over twenty families of children with cancer. My wife and I will be riding in the 2006 Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, a 192-mile bicycle ride from Sturbridge, MA to Provincetown, MA. The Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) is the oldest athletic fundraising event in the country, having started in 1980, and last year raised over $23 million dollars for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Ninety-nine percent of every dollar raised through the PMC goes directly to the Dana-Farber, making it one of the most efficient charitable organizations in the country. I have personally set a goal of $100,000 to be raised in honor of my patients. Please let me know what you think of the site, and please consider spreading word of it to friends/colleagues. Most of the money I've raised has been by word-of-mouth, and I'm hoping to meet my goal assisted by the kindness of others (including a huge boost by the guys at CarTalk).

I'm a Wildlife Ambassador
I'm 13 and I've been building this site that explains some of the work I do to help other kids understand wildlife and nature and habitats and how we humans are all connected to nature. The first part of the site has been just explaining myself. The next part will have a lot of wildlife information and hopefully a forum that could match up other kids' interests with ways to use those interests to benefit nature.

Bits du Jour
Like woot! for software - one product a day at a discount. It's not entirely new; it's been live about 10 weeks, but we're at kind of a crossroads now trying to decide how viable it is, and would appreciate some feedback.
