As a college radio fan, I want to throw my support behind a great meta-website, underheard.org, that hosts downloads from a plethora of weekly shows on community radio stations around the country. Download directly in MP3, stream (via M3U, or MP3 playlist files), or P**cast the sucker - sorry, I can't type that word. Just like I can't - or won't - type w**2.0. It has some of my personal favorites from the great California stations, KFJC, KZSU, and KDVS, as well as several others that I had not heard of until now.

Yummy sounds all around.

Off to the World Cup!

I got my tickets! So for the price of about 1/2 a ticket to the Super Bowl, I got tickets for the US national team's group stage games (three) in Germany this June. World Cup 2006 is gonna be a blast. And if they advance past the group stage... well, I guess I'll pay slightly more than what I already have to scalp those tickets ;)

Yeah, I'm that kind of guy

So a couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article called "There is no Open Source Community". Some liked it, some hated it, and it generated some good discussion - without, surprisingly, degernating into namecalling. You can find the article here.
