After last year’s bracket column, a number of you happily reported that your wallet was a little heavier after winning your pool on the championship game. Chris and I were happy to oblige and decided to repeat this year. (Speaking of repeat: We hope you do, too.) His picks are still being worked on, but since we’re cutting it close: (more…)
Wahoo! It’s the annual March Madness aggregation of all the coverage from across the web. Chris and I will be co-writing a piece this Wednesday with our thoughts on the seedings, upsets, and final picks for the 2013 tournament, but until then… (more…)
Google Reader had more written about its demise than there was about its launch, but all the coverage I’ve read has grossly, spectacularly missed the mark on why Reader (more importantly RSS in general) is so valuable now more than ever.

Their reasons for using it were about centralizing the articles, videos, and photos they previously had to load in separate tabs. Opening everything you want to read in a new window is a daunting task if your reading […]
The most satisfying part about last night’s election results wasn’t the winner. It was when the opinions, false equivalencies, credibility, and egos of the (mostly right-wing) “pundits” (If we define ‘pundit’ as someone who eats glue ) were proven wholly irrelevant by New York Times’ Nate Silver.

Here’s the best snark from Twitter users after the world’s worst web host was hacked by some kid…
The internet has a headache-inducing number of blog posts, “How-To’s”, and checklists about keeping yourself productive. That much reading on a topic so banal can and will fry your brain if you want to stay on top of it and tweak the way you eat your breakfast cereal.
I work full-time, run a startup, will soon begin training interns and hiring freelance staff, manage to keep up on news, work out, and still enjoy somewhat of a social life. I do this using three – and only three – bullets.
Internet Week 2012 is in full swing – which means that if I were to actually attend one of these movies today I’d be asleep before the opening credits. However, it also means that an almost-full list of all the movies is compiled and ready to be added to your calendar.
This project is always a fun ‘thank you’ to the Internet Week crowd and to the suprising amount of people that continue to visit this website despite its recent lack of updates.
So again – thank you. And without further adieu…
I started uploading some well-received desktop wallpapers on my last blog, so I’m continuing the trend on my personal website. Click here to browse my full collection.
(Lots of Game of Thrones wallpaper. You’re surprised I’m sure…)
Welcome to the first ‘Morning Glory’ edition on MD4.0. (Putting on to do-list: Find a better blog nickname.) You can still find the older ones at the Instant Win. Let’s get started.
- TechCrunch has a leaked photo of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Best comment: “4.8″ screen? I’m going to hang that in the bathroom in front of my toilet.” No kidding…that screen is huuuge.
- Pajiba needs a costume change after seeing the official trailer for the second season of Game of Thrones.*
