Where In The World Am I

I’m usually good about posting something every day. At least I try to be. If you ever tune in and there isn’t a new post from me, then chances are you can figure out why by looking at my Twitter feed on the right in the section “oOps. I Tweated again”. Yes, that’s a Britney reference. You can also follow me on twitter by going to twitter.com/jeffmmckinney.

Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Walk MS Event

I’m taking a break from fart jokes and Transformers (don’t worry, it’s a very short break) to tell you about fellow blogger, Vicious Headbutt of Digital Fortress, who posted a blog entry on Tuesday about his family’s personal involvement with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). You can read that story by clicking here.

In addition to his story, this post also includes information on an MS fundraising Walk taking place on Saturday, April 25, 2009, and how we can help by making a donation to the fund. We can easily make a contribution (no matter how small) at the National MS site by clicking here.

Mean Spirited Morning: Facebook’s New Look

There were a lot of things this past week that got my goat but rather than getting even, I’m getting Mean Spirited. Won’t you join me?

facebook-new-look

I have to be honest with you, I’m not that annoyed with Facebook’s new layout but I know a lot of other people are. What does get my goat about this is the fact that Facebook bragged about it’s open-door policy that asked it’s users to help with the new design. Most Facebook users hate the new look so what happened to our input?

What do you think?

Earth Hour 2009

That Earth Hour is so hot right now. Are you going to join?

In case you haven’t heard of it, Earth Hour is a relatively new environmental movement that began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. The following year, 50 million people around the planet including the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square joined in and switched off for one hour.

This year, the goal is to reach 1 billion people! (read that in your head with a Dr. Evil voice. It’s fun).

The best part about this movement is how little we have to do. Just turn off all the lights in your home on Saturday, March 28, from 8:30-9:30pm. That’s it!

The Future Is Now

Gizmodo posted the following TV news segment from 1981 discussing the then future of receiving our news online. It’s a fascinating look at how much the technology we are using right now has improved since then. Personally, I have never in my life purchased a newspaper. What about you?

The video is a little over 2 minutes long and definitely worth the watch.
