Here’s the ultimate in personal gifts – give someone some [art made out of DNA](http://www.dna11.com/). The question is, whose DNA would you use? Your own? Isn’t that a little arrogant?

This seems to be a recurring problem among my friends and workmates. You’ve got a phone, PDA, iPod, GPS, USB stick, keys, wallet, and more. Even cargo pants have a limited number of pockets, and they don’t go very well with a jacket and tie. You don’t want to look like a *complete* nerd and… Continue reading How Do You Carry All Your Gadgets?

Here are two great presents I’d love to find under the tree this Christmas: – [The Cubes](http://www.cubefigures.com/) – [Roboraptor](http://www.roboraptoronline.com/) Wouldn’t that combination be wonderful? Hours of fun!
Here’s an interesting site tracking the growth of location-based mobile phone services – mobloc8. It tracks news articles, web sites, etc with a breakdown of posts by category. Very handy if you’re trying to research a specific topic or company. It’s quite new, but looks like one to watch.
I’ve redesigned some of my sites using CSS. This new design is cleaner and simpler than the old one, and I think it looks more professional. Please let me know what you think!
