Pearls Before Breakfast

My friend Jeff pointed me to this article in the Washington Post. I think it’s a great read, but it’s long, and the videos are worth watching – it will take you 10 or 15 minutes to get through. As a stunt, they put a world-class violinist in a Washington DC subway station to see […]

Opening Day at Fenway

Opening Day at Fenway today. It was a great game – not in the baseball purist sense, but great for the home team. Lots of runs made it almost academic early. Beckett pitched pretty well, too, thought it was overshadowed by the offense. … See my Tabblo

Carreiro for Moderator

There have been many times in the past where I looked at a ballot for some race or other and found no one that I could vote for, and I end up just leaving it blank. I’m delighted that this year’s race for moderator has two good, qualified candidates on the ballot. We can’t go […]

Why HP Bought Tabblo

The New York Times ran an article today about how HP’s printing group is working on making it easier to print from the web. I’ve had many friends ask me about the details of HP buying Tabblo.  I’ve given a number of different cagey, redacted responses because I didn’t know how much was public and […]

When we started, it was with Personnel Director Caryn Malloy who went over the pay and classification changes in Article 41. Some of the changes are […]

Finance Committee on School Building, Rink, and Rec

(Black text is mostly objective, red text is mostly subjective in nature.) Al Tosti had met with Town Counsel John Maher to review the warrant. There are a couple articles that the Selectmen endorsed that the Finance Committee voted down. The Selectmen appear to think that it is a good idea to pay down the […]

Matsuzaka says: Just Do It

After months of hype and excitement, tomorrow Dice-K takes the mound. I’m really looking forward to it. Of course, I’m not the only one. Lots of people in Japan are going to be awake at 2AM their time to see his first pitch. Me, I’ll just be at work, trying not to be too distracted. […]

Web 2.0 Goes Jock

Co-worker Matt pointed me to BallHype, found via TechCrunch. I do my share of sports watching. But I don’t read/watch much sports reporting. I find it too repetitive. I mean, how many times can one person hear about Terrel Owen’s latest meltdown? Once is plenty. Even sports writers that I enjoy, like Bill Simmons, are […]
