I've started and that is my regular blog site. So I won't be updating the afternoon drip unless I suddenly get a lot of time on my hands.

This was my first blog and I'm greatful to it.

Dear Post-Gazette

Dear Tim,

I was glad to see someone from Pittsburgh reporting on Bacn today. The story has traveled around the globe and it is nice to get a little hometown coverage. So thanks for picking up the story.

I do have a few concerns about your decision to interview people from outside of Pittsburgh. There were over 250 people in attendance at PodCamp and not one of them was mentioned in the article. Certainly some of the local people who coined the phrase would have been interesting to your readers. As well as the fact that the people you did interview talked about phones, spam and identity theft. I really think you missed an opportunity to celebrate the fact that Pittsburgh is influencing the world in a major way.

I also wanted to let you know that you missed an opportunity to praise the folks locally for being ahead of the curve. Many of them have communicated to me this morning about the article and their disappointment is quite noticeable. Let me remind you that these are the people who overnight had the world talking about Bacn.

Break In

This morning I was woken by the sound of crashing dishes in the sink. Normally the non-regulated movements of my roommates would lead me to expect the washing of dishes in the early am. But as it were I didn't sense their presence. So after multiple crashes I got up to discover that squirrels had broken through the screen to enter our kitchen. Normally I would have reached for the box of Honey Nut Crunch but I was not my usually friendly self at such an early hour. Luckily when the pair heard my footsteps the quickly exited out the window.

The thing that bothers me most is that once I closed the window they were more than happy to get right up close and see if they could get back in. Even when I was standing right there tapping the window in hope to scare them away. At first I was concerned that there was a third somewhere in the place but I didn't hear or see another. I don't know what special squirrel treat is in my kitchen but my advise to you is beware the squirrel master.

All of this before any coffee was enough excitement for me. I did manage to get a quick snapshot.

Computers are the future.

Indeed the people who build this machine would agree that in a few years we would all have computers in our homes. Too bad they never imagined we would all be carrying tiny computers in our pockets. What I wonder most is what that giant wheel is for? I mean seriously it looks like something the Skipper should be using while Gilligan is trying to read the print-out.

Late drip

I didn't get to the pot until 4:30 today. First one of day too.

I spent the afternoon meeting with folks about a new initiative we have with the Sci Fi channel. It is a good deal but not everyone is on board right off. The people who were most excited were the folks who are probably already fans of the network. I'm now trying to get caught up on everything I need to get caught up on but my mind is scattered at the moment. I'm hoping the drip will get me back into shape.
