  1. The Twitter Effect

    Twitter has had an interesting effect on my blogging over the last few months: Things that used to turn into short blog posts are often being distilled down to a couple sentences and sent to Twitter instead. Of course, this results in fewer blog posts and more Twitter updates. The posts that do find their…

  2. Mentoring at TechStars

    I spent today in Boulder meeting with several of the TechStars groups. As a mentor I’m basically a resource they can bounce ideas off, get feedback from and use to network. I hope I was successful in providing this to the groups I met with today. I look forward to seeing their progress next time…

  3. Around the web

    Carter Bays of How I Met Your Mother: The TV Squad Interview – TV Squad One Man’s Take on Twitter Boom Swagger Boom – awesome. Which compact camera do I recommend? – I’ve asked Eric this myself in the past. Robert Accettura: Firefox Tip: Delete One Item From History – good stuff. The Palm OS…

  4. Tips for Migrating Between Macs

    I’ve used a variety of means to migrate from one Mac to another over the years: Manually copy stuff over and do clean reinstalls. Clone the HD from one machine to another. And today, I used the migration assistant. I imagine the migration assistant is great for most folks, but it’s less than ideal for…

  5. Building alexking.org 2.0, part 11: Monetization

    Note: This is the eleventh (and last) in a series of articles about the building of alexking.org 2.0. When I first launched alexking.org back in 2002, I didn’t plan to make any money from it or do any advertising on it. I remember friends telling me I should put up ads when I was slashdotted…

  6. Introducing Eric Miller

    Last week King Design‘s staff grew by 100% when Eric Miller accepted my offer to come on board1. Eric will be working on all sorts of fun stuff, but one thing we’re focusing on is expanding the amount of custom development consulting work King Design does – particularly custom WordPress development. There is a lot…

  7. FedEx Cup Standings

    The PGA Tour is trying a new experiment this year with the FedEx Cup, a season long standings race culminating in a big playoff and payoff for the winners. A quick glance at the standings show that Tiger has a slim lead at the top over Phil and Vijay, with the rest of the pack…

  8. Around the web

    Selling News Alloy – Stats – the # of feeds/users ratio really surprises me here. We really did have power users at FeedLounge. David Ignatius – The Oval Office Bunker – washingtonpost.com …Republicans voice the bitterness and frustration of people chained to the hull of a sinking ship. Update on Kiva Function Follows Form –…

  9. Tasks Pro™ 1.7.1rc1 and Tasks™ 2.7.1rc1

    I’ve posted release candidates of Tasks Pro™ and Tasks™, both are bug fix releases addressing issues found in the 1.7 and 2.7 releases respectively. I’m quite pleased that the .7 releases were very solid, not requiring any immediate .1 follow-up releases, however there are a number of little issues that have been fixed in the…
