Red Sox win

on Thu, 06/05/2008 - 19:18

Went with Dries and his wife Karlijn to see the Sox play last night. Their first game.

Tix (for amazing seats!) obtained by the ever-fantastic Roger (red jacket), accompanied by my wife (pink sweater) and kudos to Chuck (left), who got to go because he scored our first revenue dollar. (Go Chuck!)

Jason Varitek hit an exciting long ball to center, but his sac-fly brought Manny home. Oh; Sox beat the Rays. Of course. :-) Making them first in the AL East (as they should be).

Feats of strength

I'm not sure; maybe you have to be a cyclist, and know the pain that occurs after a long climb, and how fatigue has set into your legs, and how every pedalstroke is simultaneously a pain-generator, a motivator, and chinese water torture all in one.

Maybe only cyclists can appreciate the moment when somebody in a huge climb just pulls away from the rest of the pack, and conquers the pain with sheer strength.

But maybe you don't have to be a cyclist. If you can watch this video and not simply be amazed, then maybe you need to get your butt on a bike. ;-)


Wait for it...

I guess we've all spaced out at least once in life.

The perfect race

This is why I love the BKW blog: for the beauty of the writing, and the understanding of the sport.


Tidbits from David Weinberger at ROFLcon

on Fri, 04/25/2008 - 21:54

No major insights here; just tidbits from David Weinberger's speech:

  • Fame arises from scarcity of suppliers
  • Perfection is now seen as less-credible (vs. more credible, in years past.) (NB: IMHO (jb), this isn't a universal truth....)
  • "We" make memes famous (via recommendations)
  • But now, if fame is coming from "we," we don't know what to do with fame that arises from lots of people creating fame?

Note: I'm making no endorsement of these points.... Merely capturing some things. ;-)
