Devaluing Labor Day 

Harold Meyerson writes a great Op-Ed in WP about the war against Labor since 1973. Wages use to keep pace with productivity gains and now big corporations keep it for their shareholders. He has references to other great articles on the decline of wages and the middle class in America.

These really were the good old days. And we can get back there using anti-trust law and supporting unions even in this age of globalization.

Dead w600i 

I love my Sony Ericsson w600i cell phone. But it died this last weekend. Tried updating the firmware, with no luck. So SE is having me send it in for “repair.” Customer service was good, but I’m still waiting to see the email about where to send it. Got the RMA number right away.

Now I have to wait to try some of Dave Winer’s mobile applications.

I've recently been using pbwiki to gather all of my notes on my Zlides project. This is a great service and I highly recommend it. It is free and a great way to try a wiki. Families, businesses and educators are use wikis successfully. Note: this is a completely unsolicited plug.

No Limits to Wikipedia 

Don Blake pointed out Infoworld article about Jimmy Wales at Wikimania. While he offered a caveat, he said that the English version might be starting to reach its limit, perhaps eventually topping out at 2 million or 3 million articles.

That is laughable on two fronts. First, every business wants an entry for itself and its brands. Given the number of new brands every year, it won’t stop growing. Second, Wikipedia is now a source of biographies which will mean that it will become the source for obits as well. People aren’t going to stop dying and so Wikipedia will keep growing.

Enjoying Modern Life 

What I do at home after work is so different that just 10 years ago. I’m watching TiVo while on my laptop posting to my blog and coding my latest project that the world can use.

Presentation Challenge 
After a week of presentations at UX Week I’ve decided to challenge myself in my presentations to create or use handouts that are not just copies.

IE Javascript Debugging 

Microsoft provides Script Editor to help debug JavaScript in IE. However, it is not part of the standard install of MS Office, at least not when I installed it this morning. Had add components under Advanced > Office Tools > HTML Source Editing. JonathanBoutelle explains how to debug. Note: after installing you need to close and restart IE.
