Cultural Peak Geek

Sometime early 2013 was probably “cultural peak geek”, in my opinion.  Wired thought it was in 2016.  CNN suggested cultural peak geek was 2019.  I did a list of cultural events and their dates, put them in order, and concluded that the actual peak was likely 2013.  That’s when being any kind of nerd was […]

Road Hacks #2: A Pee Bottle

Yes, a pee bottle.  A bottle in which you can pee.  A pee bottle could in fact save your life.  Seriously.  With an increasingly limited number of public places where people can do anything (relax, explore, browse, shop, eat, etc), there is an ever more limited number of public bathrooms to “go number one”.  That […]

Back In The Day #5: Internet Video

YouTube just turned fifteen years old. That means there was no YouTube before 2005.  And how quickly we forget that YouTube was controversial in the beginning.  YouTube was considered mostly pirate music videos, used as much as 80% of the Internet bandwidth traffic (which was in 2005 still mostly text and low-resolution images), and had […]
