Last week, for the first time in years, I found myself home sick from work. I've had a few minor colds over the last few years, but I mostly dodged them with little more than sniffles. Not this cold. On Monday, it waylaid me a few minutes after I got back from skiing when a terrible shiver ran through my body, and didn't leave until the weekend.
One of my goals with the Nuketown redesign was to aggressively pursue a social media strategy, rather then letting it simply flop around like a dying fish.
It's been a while since Nuketown ran a "Follow Friday" column for Twitter, but it seemed like a tradition worth restarting. This time around we've got geek dads, RPG designers, Mars rover drivers, science fiction publishers, and much more.
My birthday (Dec. 17) and Christmas have come and gone, and now there's a nice pile of geeky presents stacked on the Geek Tree's rocket-themed tree skirt.
I bought a Kindle Touch over the summer for two reasons: 1) I wanted to take a bunch of books with me on vacation, and didn't want to pack four hardcover novels and 2) I was jealous of my daughter's Kindle.
StarGirl, age 9, got the Kindle Touch from her grandparents for Christmas and spent the next six months devouring books on it. Early in the summer the family went to Sandy Hook, N.J. for the day, and I decided to give it a try. I was curious about how well it held up in direct sunglight, which is something my iPad has a notoriously difficult time with.
My family and I recently went to Disney World. This is part 4 of my 4 part series looking at the trip. Read Part 1: Downtown Disney, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Part 2: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Part 3: Pin Trading, Autographs, Fastpass, Card Games.
It's alive! Nuketown 7 is now in production. It's not quite finished yet -- there are a couple of bugs here and there that need to be squashed -- but the site has been upgraded to Drupal 7 and it's running its spiffy new theme. The social media buttons are active and -- amazingly -- working and we can now post microcontent updates directly from the site to Twitter.
Up until October 2012 I'd been to Disney World five times, never with kids. This week that all changed as my wife and I took the kids on our first-ever destination vacation to Disney World.
