Earth Day: Take Your Kids For a Hike in the Urban Jungle (video)

We're big fans of hiking and are fortunate enough to live in a city that has a lot of greenspace and trails. I even keep a supply of bird seed and a geocaching kit in the back of the car in case we decide to go on a whim....more

An App That Doesn't Try to Hide Its Dark Side: Creepy

Here's another "warning app" following in the footsteps of Please Rob Me, which scoured the web for geolocated tweets in which people indicated that they were not home, and aggregated them into a single page. It was meant as a social security exercise to bring people's attention to the privacy and security risks of broadcasting their whereabouts, especially when they are away from home....more

The Value and Power of Twitter (video)

Those of us on the thin edge of the wedge should constantly remind ourselves that only about 10% of the population is on Twitter. As we early adopters start to get bored with technology, we often write it off and move onto the next thing way before it even has a chance to hit critical mass.So let's remind ourselves to breathe and be patient when a luddite someone asks whether Twitter is just people posting about their breakfasts (Note: this type of skeptical comment is usually accompanied by eye rolling.) And while you breathe, show them this....more

I work for Bridgestone Americas, overseeing their teen driver safety efforts....more

Fly to Saturn with this amazing video!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly into space?  I mean WAY into space?  Although humans aren’t ready to go back to the Moon or to Mars, we have sent out dozens of spacecraft to the planets and beyond.  Most of the instruments send back data that scientists analyze and tell us what it means.  But on almost every mission, there is also a camera — so that everyone can be part of the experience.  Check out this new video from NASA’s Cassini spac...more

UCLA Woman's Racist Video Rant Goes Viral

When I started seeing tweets and Facebook updates mentioning a “Ching Chong” YouTube video, my first thought was, Oh no, not Rush Limbaugh again! Even more disappointing, this time the remarks are being made by a young woman at one of California’s top universities —- UCLA student Alexandra Wallace. I really debated about whether I should write about this or not, as I don’t want to give these racist antics any more publicity. But, the Internet ethics it brings up are just too important to ignore. ...more
