Actions speak louder than words so I have decided that I will dispel these vicious rumors by posting at least once, every day, for one month beginning today.  This post does not count.  Enjoy.

 

Update: yeah, so no posts since 9/18 means I’m a liar.  This will change shortly or the Geisenblog will be donated to science.

Apparently Techcrunch launched their redesign yesterday evening, a full 12 hours before CNET’s redesign officially launched this morning.  Interesting timing…

Dropped from approximately 3 feet onto NYC sidewalk.  Several pedestrians were startled by the stream of profanity that ensued.

Fuck.

Caption: Brian Long reacts to today’s news regarding CBSi’s grooming standard.  “I didn’t expect to be told by Sean Cullinane to ‘police my moustache’ in such a forceful manner,” said Brian Long after sobbing uncontrollably for over 25 minutes.   Brian, and all former CNET Networks employees, are expected to adhere to CBS’ grooming standard immediately.

As an astute commenter (probably this guy) has pointed out, the WordPress iPhone application has not led to increased posting volume. This shouldn’t surprise anyone. In fact, the only reason I’m writing something now is because I’ve managed to catch the attention of a large group of interested individuals who are clamoring for the sort of insight and analysis that can only be found here. These folks, that I am fortunate enough to work with, have decided that Geisenblog warrants its own corner of Facebook. How nice of them.  If you were ever curious about the embarrassing shit that I’ve contributed to the internet over the years, but were too lazy to Google my name, it’s now laid out on a nice, neat Facebook fan page.  We’ll see if this newfound attention will lead me to fulfill the promise laid out on that page to “educate and enlighten the general populace. Increase attendance at Dorrian’s. Dispute misconceptions put forth about The Upper East Side on Gossip Girl.”  Should be exciting…

WordPress just released their iPhone application. Now I can post to this here blog from a practically limitless variety of locales. In fact, this post is courtesy of the new WordPress iPhone app. Will this result in increased posting volume? Only time will tell (but doubtful).

“Just Lasers and Data”

It’s a shame that Steve doesn’t like Radiohead.  I suppose he’d rather tout his contrarian credentials than succumb to enjoying a contemporary band that’s well liked by a large swath of the human population.  Steve’s asinine musical tastes aside, it’s interesting that it’s taken several days for this video blow up.  It first appeared last week and it seems that it’s taken until today for the heavyweights to weigh in.  Rather than do some data-mining, I’ll just theorize that the iPhone 3G monopolized the attention of those most susceptible to the charms of lasers and data.
