(Check out my first post on arriving in Tokyo!) What can really be said about nightlife in Toyko? It’s absolutely ridiculous and like nothing you’ve ever experienced before! First of all, it’s huge. In Roppongi (the nightlife area frequented by foreigners…to mixed reviews) there are bars packed in every space possible. Tokyo builds out vertically,Continue reading “Nightlife in Tokyo”
Yup, Karl, I understand completely. If I think about how things are at PF right now, it is full of unexplored and sometimes broken promise. It’s taken all the free time I’ve had just to keep it running. It doesn’t meet my personal standards for what I expect a great service to be. And I’mContinue reading “Echo Karl”
If after upgrading to WordPress 2.3 you’re getting database errors similar to SELECT cat_ID AS ID, MAX(post_modified) AS last_mod FROM `posts` p LEFT JOIN `post2cat` pc ON…, it might be because you’re using the Google Sitemaps Plugin. (That link wasn’t the exact problem I was having, but I recognized the SQL statements as being similar.)Continue reading “WordPress 2.3 Database Error / Google Sitemaps Plugin”
Cenk Uygur has an interesting but misguided post on the declining value of nightly news anchors: We’re not interested in someone regurgitating the news to us and taking a half hour to do it. We don’t need a professional news anchor to tell us what the news is. This isn’t 1955. I’ve got all theContinue reading “Now, More Than Ever”
Just a short note to congratulate my friend Ann on her new studio! Don’t worry, she’s still in the Banana Factory but now has a bigger, brighter place to paint. I can’t wait to visit!
You know, I never wondered about this until I saw it on Ricky’s blog: If you’ve ever wondered if Rupert Murdoch has a MySpace account, here’s your answer. Anderson has his own Rupert stories: “He called me once and couldn’t log in for some reason. I was trying to help him over the phone, saying,Continue reading “Rupert!”
And thus, like Khoi, I don’t sleep much. Mostly, I think it just comes from wanting to do so much; Iâ€™ve got a to-do list brimming with projects I want to tackle. And, again setting aside modesty, it comes from having what amounts to a pretty good life. Iâ€™m excited by everything going on inContinue reading “Thereâ€™s So Much To Do”
“Hi, we’re Amazon and we just changed the entire marketplace.” Again. I’m super-excited about this.
Asked if he would settle for money: “Absolutely not. Not. No. Absolutely not.” More: “For me, it’s not about the money. It is about this principle of what we’re going to do with our democracy. … If the time comes that there’s money as a settlement, a substantial part of that will go to suchContinue reading “What Would Dan Rather Do With $70M?”
I promised that I’d blog to share some experiences from Japan, and since next week it will be a whole month since we returned, it’s past time! Land Ho! After 13 hours on the plane (direct Newark to Tokyo = super long!), I was dead tired of flight attendants and confined spaces, so land wasContinue reading “Clean Trains, Tokyo, and First Impressions”
