Route 66…

[ music | Johnny Cash – The Wanderer ]

Ok, I’m packing up and heading out soon. So for now I’m disabling comments here on the site. You can still email me all your love and hate letters, but I probably won’t see it till the weekend. I have a lot of work to do, and very little time to do it, just how I like it. 😉 Later folks.

Aaron Brown and CNN part ways

[ music | Joan Jett – Victim Of Circumstance ]

Well, CNN did it, they let go the classiest and most interesting anchor they had. As if giving Wolf Blitzer three solid hours every day wasn’t bad enough, they’ve let Aaron Brown go from the network. I liked him almost instantly from the morning of September 11, 2001, when he was on the roof of CNN’s New York offices covering the horrors of that day. And I liked his NewsNight show ever since. No longer. If he shows up on another news network, I just might find myself watching a lot less CNN.

Aaron Brown

Update: Ok, Anderson Cooper, who now has Aaron’s timeslot, just finished his first hour in that timeslot with a 4 minute piece on Aaron’s background, his time at CNN, how they worked together at ABC and then CNN, and thanked him in a very generous and sincere manner. Not a ten second blurb or something thrown together, but a 4 minute segment with old footage and such that actually took time and energy to do. CNN is was damn lucky to have Aaron, and I’m telling you, they’re damn lucky to have Anderson Cooper. They dismissed Aaron in a very tactless manner, but Anderson Cooper just showed the world that some people at CNN still have class. Bravo, Anderson, bravo.

Extend Firefox and look good doing it.

[ music | Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now ]

Now that is kicking off its “Extend Firefox” competition, Jesse suggested I offer my services to extension authors lacking artistic skills for designing icons and logos. For him I’ve designed the logos and iconsets for Thumbs and HIGH, as well as graphical work for dozens of websites. This is a commercial thing, as much as I’d love to be able to donate time, I haven’t much time these days free to donate. But, all fees would be negotiable, and reasonable, and a portion of payments would even be donated back to the Mozilla Foundation. You’ll have a non-exclusive, world-wide, perpetual license to do with as you please, as long as I still receive original credits. Extend away!

Confucious say too damn much.

[ music | Monty Python – I Like Chinese ]

You think that it is a secret, but it has never been one.

By the way: I’m really good at laundry, too.
