Here’s the “more with less” personified. Or wait, maybe this is less with more considering the production quality. Either way, if you’d like to play along with Fred Eaglesmith’s “Spookin The Horses”, here’s a play along video. I will do more of these by request if the demand is there. As Ol’ Roadhog once said, “I got a lot of requests for this one, but we’re gonna do it anyway.”

10 Myths about Introverts – INTJs unite!
Shakespeare Takes Center Stage In The Digital Age – I once wrote a paper asserting that "Romeo and Juliet" was meant to be a comedy, not a tragedy. The data says I'm wrong. That's what my professor said too. I'm now publicly admitting defeat.
Disney Princesses, Deconstructed – All you can really do to fight it is to push a fascination with ocean dwelling killing machines instead of Princesses. But it’s an uphill battle.
Muscles Remember Past Glory – I strongly suspect fat bellies have the same memory ability.
Thanks No For Skipping Your Immunizations! Whooping CoughIs Back – I wouldn’t let Jenny McCarthy give me dating advice when I was 19. Why would I listen to her parenting tips?
What Happened to Yahoo – Bottom line–nothing was happening at Yahoo, so things started happening to Yahoo. And why is that when I change my Yahoo! password, my Del.icio.us password doesn’t change. Exhibit A.
Ragnar Central Florida – Always wanted to do one of these…I may have found a team!

14 Famous Man Caves – And not one has a spin bike or a punching bag. Where does all the anger go?
7 Discipline-builders for Remote Workers – I found this article very distracting. 🙂
Girl quits job on dry erase board – I like TechCrunch too, but if you spend an hour a day there, you must be reading at a remedial level. It’s not Faulkner.
Michael P. Fleischer: Why I’m Not Hiring – Interesting…and I thought it was just because he was a racist.
The Great Reset of Urban Development in Economic Downturns – Metropolitan corridors. I don’t like the sound of that.

Facebook blocks ‘Web 2.0 Suicide Machine’ – All of your facebooks are belong to Facebook. Got it?
Photocheck.in for Foursquare – Since Orlando is so close, I've had a chance to mess with Foursquare some. Not that there's really anything huge going on in Melbourne, but it's close enough. Here, you get to be the Mayor of places like Publix and Panera (although I'm the current Long Doggers Mayor as well), and I don't think many other people in this little village are playing along. But photo checkin is a really cool idea for places like Sea World and IKEA, where I actually have taken some photos and almost forgot to 4S checkin.
WordPress 2.9.1 – This is supposed to fix some pingback issues. I've been using Delicious to auto-generate a lot of posts based on stuff I bookmark, and I've noticed that my posts don't seem to ping the other blogs I've linked to the same way they would if I wrote a post in the editor. Not sure why this would happen, since the ping is supposed to happen at publish time. Hopefully this was just a WordPress issue and is resolved.
Facebook Rolling Out Redesign To Some Users – I'm trying to quickly set the over/under on how long it will be until I see the first post in my FB feed of someone complaining about the new layout. Tentative line is 35 hours.
Some Google Wave Bots – I suspect lots of people got busy at the end of the year and the Google Wave hoopla died down. It may be coming back big this year, and here's a list of useful bots to add to your account. If you're on Wave, let's make an effort to communicate that way!
George F. Will – Catastrophe and survival – Read it. Again.
Do More, Buy Less – A huge positive from a recession. This goes hand in hand with the fact that people are saving more. I'm still amazed that people at the top continue to contend that the answer is to "get credit flowing again." Well, I'm not really shocked that they say it. That's what benefits them and their friends. But I am amazed that so many people buy it hook line and sinker.
