This presentation at TED is well worth the twenty minutes or so it takes to watch it.
It is refreshing to see an approach to staying healthy that is based on adding something to your diet rather than taking something away from it. Many thanks to my friend Tim Miller for pointing me to this resource.
Here are some other links (one, two) to the American Cancer Society’s discussion of this type of therapy.
Reading things online used to be a real problem. It isn’t any more thanks to this tool from Arc90 Labs.
Readability – Installation Video for Firefox, Safari & Chrome from Arc90 on Vimeo.
I’ve been using this tool for a number of months now and find it incredibly useful.
While the video describes how to add this tool to Firefox, Safari and Chrome, it is quite possible to add it to Internet Explorer too by just making it a Favorite and storing it in your “Favorites Bar.” It is my experience that you may have to remove some of the pre-installed Favorites that Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, have determined to put there so that the Readability link will appear when you are reading a page. Also, you must assure that the Favorites Bar is visible at the top of your browser for this tool to be of any use to you.
Fortunately, Arc90 has created a video to illustrate how to install this bookmarklet into Internet Explorer too.

That’s all there is to it. Enjoy.
Just sharing Gina Trapani’s excellent video illustrating Google Wave. Thanks, Gina.
I’m enjoying experimenting with Google Wave but at this stage having trouble finding playmates for this new toy.
If you still haven’t decided what to pack in your sleigh for me this Christmas, here’s a little project I’m sure I would enjoy completing.
I could retire Deep Thought to duties associated with my HDTV and hand over the chore of controlling the stars to the new Supreme Combo.
Thanks to my following Leo LaPorte on Twitter, I discovered this excellent resource today. And because it’s the season of giving and I’m feeling generous, I want to share it with you.

Another digital photography resource that I’ve used for a long time is Digital Photography Review. The various topic specific forums (fora?) on that site are a wonderful way to delve deeply into a subject of interest and profit from the experiences of others. Sites like these two and a multitude of others illustrate how the computer can be a patient educator, in addition to its more common use (for many) as a source of entertainment. As I think Yogi Berra is reported to have said, “You can observe a lot by watching.”
As you prepare for the holidays, do yourself a favor and watch this cold-water-in-the-face video.
“Free checking, huh?”
When you comment on one of my blog posts, if you should ever do so, you’ll note that Echo is now enabled on this site. This video interview by Robert Scoble of Khris Loux the co-founder of JS-Kit will explain what Echo is and how it works.
It might be worth making a comment just to see how it works!
