  • My top Apps of 2010

    Everyone’s got a Top ‘some­thing’ of the year list, so I thought I’d jump in with my picks for Top Apps of 2010 — with a little twist; only one app, per plat­form, amongst the 3 plat­forms I use (Win­dows, iOS (iPad), and Inter­net).

  • US Space Shuttle Program Commemorated [Video]

    This has to be one of the best col­lec­tion of images of the US Space Shuttle Pro­gram any­where — built into a video that describes the pro­gram, tri­umphs and fail­ures. If you’ve got 45 minutes to spare, it’s worth a watch!
