One of the things I picked up from Jamie and Garrick talking nerd stuff on this episode of the Open Loop podcast was a reference to the open source project Piwik. Despite this thing having millions of downloads, I had never heard of it. Basically, it is an open source version of Google Analytics that […]

Open Loop Podcast

I had occasion to correspond with Garrick van Buren. I had made a post a while back that I missed his First Crack podcast. He focussed on people and businesses local to him, and they were always interesting. When my daughter was born I went back to look up the nut who had the Daddyator […]

The Downside of the Cullect Widget

A couple months ago I put the Cullect widget on this blog’s sidebar. I’ve been trying to support Garrick van Buren and Cullect, mostly because he has always been a strong supporter of most or all of my projects and I owe him some karmic debt. There is one problem with that, though. When I […]

I’ve been watching Garrick van Buren‘s Cullect project for a while now. I’ll admit that I feel a little guilty about it because I’ve taken several runs at it and I always feel like I’m not grokking the full power of it. I mean, it seems like it has a lot to offer and is […]

More on the overexposure front. I did an interview with Bazooka Joe at the Small World podcast all about the Uplifter movement and philosphy.
