April came in like a lion for me; was in Boston where I enjoyed an April Fools storm. Came back last night and here I am, in warm and sunny Los Angeles, blogging away... Yay.
Okay, enough of that, how about some of this:
Here we have the coolest tidal bore on the planet, at Bruno Santos, Indonesia. Yes you must watch this, 20 perfect sets rolling in for a mile. Looks computer generated it is so perfect. Wow.
Huh, aeronautical engineer Burt Rutan is retiring. What a legend. Wonder if Scaled Composites is going to make it without him?
So the final tally is in for my for a teen: iPad vs Macbook survey; Macbook won in a landslide, 80% to 12%. So be it. Still most of you voters are already computer users, while iPads are the computer for the rest of us :)
Check out Google Page Speed Online. Critical Section gets an 82 / 100. So be it.
Way too funny: the Macalope's Fools of the Year. I especially like the iPad success-deniers. At this point they have been overtaken by history.
Scott "Dilbert" Adams: The importance of new ideas (even bad ones). One of the reasons I like blogging :)
Excellent: It's no joke, IPOs are back. Just in time!
True colors: bathing mobile in an entirely new light. We'll see about that; I think this is advanced kool-aid drinking. There doesn't seem to be a there there.
Speaking of missing theres, Dave Winer has remerged his linkblog with his realblog, ending an experiment with Twitter. I find the number of ex-Twitter users among my friends is growing.
Well of course: Google plans facial recognition app that can pull up personal data. You know this will happen (we've talked about it); the only question is how soon. And of course when can we have it built into our shades?
Amazingly and surprisingly, I realized I have no idea who is in the Final Four, and was only dimly aware it takes place this weekend. Wow and in years past I was all over this. No #1 seeds! No #2s either, one #3 and #4! Wow. UConn, Kentucky, Butler, and Virginia Commonwealth (!) ... I guess I'm going to root for Kentucky. Just because.
The real big sporting event is tomorrow's Tour of Flanders. Can't wait! Onward, have a nice weekend...
