Digg: What I Learned


Today, the social news site Digg was down for quite some time. Without something to distract me from everyday work all was almost lost... if not for some alternativewebsite suggestions by Digg staff members. These suggestions were pretty straight forward, featuring great time killers like xkcd and Atom Films. Others, however, were able to shine a light on the inside of Kevin Rose's fellow employees...

A one, Brian L., just might be afraid of pentagrams...




otakurevolution.net makes its return as an active domain. Brian transferred the domain over to me so that I could put it to good use. Well, better use than it was getting, anyway.

I'll be sure to cross-link over here as well, once I get a few updates to the main page done.

Megacon 2008 Report


So I went to Megacon this year for three days of fun and excitement. Though not all was fun and excitement. Now, I've been to different sorts of conventions before. Some were huge (Otakon), and some were small (MTAC). With that said, my impression of Megacon was more of a middle-con. It took place it a fairly big size area convention center, and housed a large populace, especially on Saturday. The dealers room was actually pretty massive though, but as far as events went, I found myself bored more often than not. Hell, I left at six o'clock...on a SATURDAY. Isn't Saturday night when everything cool is supposed to happen? On Friday we got there at 11-ish, and we were in what was thought to be the second panel of the day, but in reality no panels actually happened until 1pm? What a joke. I'm not trying to convey that I didn't have fun.
