I saw this on Letterman the other night and couldn't help but crack up. She was trying so hard to come up with something that had a global perspective.

Question: "Recent polls have shown 1/5 of Americans can't locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is?" 

South Carolina: "I personally believe that you as Americans are unable to do so because (um) some people out there in our nation dont have maps. And I believe that our education, such as South Africa and the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should-- our education over here in the US should help the US, (uh-b-err-uh) should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future... for our children...."

 

As part of my quest to find a good video solution for my website, I'm trying out Google Video.  The video quality is a lot better than the local tool I was using (Sothink Flash Encoder), but the video is a lot choppier. I think the choppiness of the video has something to do with the framerates not syncing up during the video encoding process on Google's end, but that may be because I took the video with my Treo 650 cell phone.  I'll try some more videos with my regular camera later and see how those turn out. 

Shiner Jumps Out of Creek

I recently added some new features to the website that will hopefully make your experience more enjoyable.  The main things I was looking to do were add a commenting system to the articles and make it easier to find interesting articles.  The comment system was a simple add-on of a module to the site, but increasing the navigability of the site is a constant activity.

If you've been reading my blog within the past few months, you've probably noticed I've been on a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) kick.  While a big part of this is to increase search engine ranking and traffic, the other part is to increase the quality of the site.  If google likes your site, people probably will too.  To some of you this may seem a little odd, but it's true.  I won't go into the details in this article, but google has a lot of features in its algorithms that make sure your site is as search engine popular as it is socially popular.

I saw this in the mall the other day and I thought it was one of the most ridiculous things I've seen in a long time.  Yes, it is an iPod vending machine.  You swipe your credit card and punch in the number of the item you want. I really don't have much to say about it, but I wanted to share it with everyone.
