It’s already 2007 in most of the world (Denver just crossed over). Hope you all are having a good New Year. Patrick has been moping all night. You have no idea how much his new Mac meant to him. He saved up for about a year to get it and now he has to use a Windows machine and he’s not happy at all.
Anyway, Thomas Hawk has a beautiful picture of ladybugs that reminds me of a trip Patrick and I took to Yosemite when he was seven. We came upon a huge patch of ladybugs. All doing the “wild thing.” I took a few pictures and called it my ladybug porn. I don’t know where I’m going with this, but it makes me hopeful for the future. The ladybugs are having a party, hope you are too!
Oh, back to politics, over on the Republican side of the fence, Mitt Romney is reaching out to bloggers too, according to the Boston Globe. “The Internet, e-mail, blogs, and websites are to organizational politics what the telephone was starting in the 1940s or what direct mail was starting in the 1960s,” said Craig Shirley, an author and political consultant who worked on Reagan’s presidential campaigns.
Anyway, it’s going to be an interesting year on a whole lot of fronts, politics being one of them. I learned today that on Wednesday I’m going to get a tour of one of Intel’s newest and highest-tech fab lines in Portland, Oregon, where they are kicking out four-core processors. Should be an interesting week in preparation for CES. Sounds like we’re going to have an interesting group of people in the BlogHaus — our list is already more than 100 people including some of the biggest names in blogging and social media.
