Remember When.

Not so many years ago. An odd man named Al Gore invented the internet.

Not so long ago, Harvard types decided to make it even better.


If this project takes root, it could totally change the way we access information on the Internet. Granted, I've never wanted to know which is higher/longer, Mt. Everest vs. Golden Gate Bridge. But I have wanted to know what's the best season to visit Thailand or which is a better March vacation between Old Europe and Central America.

From the looks of it, the Wolfram Alpha Project might actually be the true iteration of Web 2.0 that has longed been prophesied about.

And then there is this:

MiFi, as delightfully explained by the wonderful David Pogue of the NYT. The possibilities are endless... Let's just hope the pricing comes down on usage for this magic umbrella.

Oh, and here's an old picture from San Francisco from almost two years ago when Emily and I met up for Memorial Day Weekend. Weird how much has happened since then.

awesome. i still wish that "they" would just make universal wireless internet. but until then, this little gadget looks pretty cool. and peter forgot to mention that with this, he would also be able to check all of his TMZ and People updates all day long, wherever he is. oh, how much better his life would be!

Nothing spells romance like lounging sea lions.

I think you meant nothing smells like romance than sea lions.

and don't act like you believe I really read TMZ.

I believe it. And I'll be looking forward to this new feature.

embily said...

believe it.

but even if it's not TMZ, the huffington post really isn't that far off . . .
