Pizza? No. Better Product. Make it Work.

  For years our family ordered pizza from a local place. I was a loyal customer. Over time however, we noticed the quality had changed. The service was still top notch, but the pizzas and donairs – well they just were not up to what we thought they used to be. We still ordered. We still believed that the next

Expanding the textureweb Universe

  I have a lot of things that I would like to comment and blog about, but sometimes it is just not worthy of  an article. Hence I have launched a Facebook page where I will post those items rather then keep them as a link in my desktop where they inevitably get sent to the trash. I also want

Google Doodle Nova Scotia Style

I want to share this story which is from CBC. Since not all of the readership might know about this, I thought it proper to showcase what is happening with our taleneted youth in Nova Scotia. What a great way to integrat art in the classroom with current use of technology – or rather the medium – which the students

Superbowl Memes #Winning

When you have a game like we saw last night with the apparent blowout by the Broncos, coupled with the over the top hype by the media of how they were going to win, you have to expect some memes on this. Payton may be a great quarterback, but even my fav, Tom Brady can have a day where it

Stranger in the Kitchen: Ad Fail

I have a beef with an ad running in high circulation on some channels i watch. This is not quite the same, but a slightly older ad from Cascade. The premise is the same. Before I make my point, watch this short clip. Do you see my beef? When you have an ad that has to explain things it just

Twittisoding Margaritas.

Neil Patrick Harris is always up for a laugh. Though we usually talk about digital media – though today I thought I might highlight a lighter side of the use of social media. I am sure that this is staged, but it does almost become a mini tweetisode of sorts (coined that term today by the way). Staged or not,

F*&^% That and Y0&^$ Too!

  Social media is an open place. You can disagree with someone, or even the platform, but there is still some etiquette here. When I saw this post it really stood out as the F word is not only rarely used, it is not used at all in the stream for the past 7 years I have been on Facebook.

Google TV? – Maybe if you made it for Canada

My initial thoughts on buying the GoogleTV Asus cube for my wife was so that we can watch Netflix. Other than that, it was also proven to allow the TV to stream video from a Mac formatted external hard drive with various media types (mk4, avi, mpg etc) which the Sony tv itself did not like. I bought if for

Canada Post – Show Me the Real Numbers

Background: I had posted this link on Facebook. My thoughts right or wrong on the removal of urban address delivery (note I do not say house delivery) was in response to a very uninsightful and hurtful comment and also I might add indignantly urban aimed comment from Government House leader Peter Van Loanwho stated: “I am reminded of a time
