Up early, long drive, back to back to back meetings, nice hard ride, nice dinner w nice wine, and now sleepyness setting in...

Back to blogging to music.  Now by Def Leppard.  I suspect it helps.

Andrew Breitbart notes The President's Accidental Gift on Race.  I agree wholeheartedly.  Presumed guilt is indeed the order of our politically correct days...

See the power of this fully operational blogosphere: Gates Revises Tax Return Based On Blog Post.  Glenn Reynold's headline of the year, so far :)

Urbanscreen's amazing 3D projection on the side of a buildingMust see to believe: Video: life-altering 3D projection gets splashed on German building.  As Neo would say, Whoa.

Time-lapse videos of Disneyland's construction back in 1954More video to watch: time-lapse videos chronicling the construction of Disneyland.  Really cool.  Yeah, this was back in 1954.  No Wooly Mammoths in any of the pictures though :)

TechCrunch note:  Best. Comment. Ever.  "AT&T: You can’t handle the iPhone with Google Voice!"  It is pretty great.  And yes you have to click through to read it :)

From the Ole doesn't get Twitter file: The new Twitter homepage.  So now it looks like a search engine.  What, searching across everyone's random Tweets is suddenly going to make them more interesting?

the ultimate flying machine: the Icon A5The ultimate flying machine?  The Icon A5.  "Power comes from a 100-horsepower Rotax engine, and the A5 needs 750 feet for takeoff and landing.  It has a top speed of 120 mph and a range of 300 nautical miles.  There’s room for two people and 60 pounds of luggage.  Wingspan is 34 feet.  Icon has put a lot of research into making the A5 appealing to non pilots.  The cockpit has been simplified so it looks less like an airliner and more like a car."  Looks fully awesome, I can't wait to drive fly one.  I wonder if it uses paddle shifters :)
