Slingbox.

From the Slingbox website......

"What is the SlingboxTM?

The SlingboxTM Personal Broadcaster is a consumer electronics product that a user connects to their personal TV source (including a TiVo, cable box, analog cable, satellite receiver, or virtually any other AV device) and to their high-speed network/internet connection (including DSL, cable modem, or other solution) for the purpose of "placeshifting the content" - enabling them to view their TV programming on any device. Once connected, the user can watch and control their personal TV experience from virtually any computer, PDA or mobile phone. Your TV. Any Device. Any Location."

Now tell me that isn't freaking cool!? Anything that timeshifts or placeshifts (it seems like those aren't even words for some reason...?) is cool in my book now. TiVo starting the timeshift revolution and now I believe slingbox will start the placeshift revolution. I'm a gadget geek and this thing has me going. Slingbox will be available at BestBuy and CompUSA starting tomorrow (Thursday, June 30th) and will run $249 with no montly fees.

Equation Editor

Here is something useful for folks in math and enginnering!

Word

Geek symbols

A little used feature of Office is an applet that will help create complicated equations.

Equation Editor is available in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
It is a sub-set of a full-blown program called MathType. The instructions are similar for each version.

To add an equation to your document, go to Insert>Object.
In the Create New option area, scroll down to Microsoft Equation 3.0.

(BTW: If you create the equation in Word. You can save that Word document as HTML. That will save the equation as a GIF file that you could use on the web. )


If you need more instructions, use the Help file in Equation Editor itself.

Atlantic Monthly article on me. There's a 6-page article on me and GTD in the current (JUL/AUG) issue of Atlantic Monthly in case you haven't seen it. Jim Fallows (senior writer for them former editor of US News) has been following my stuff for a while and I think did an admirable job of expressing some of the core stuff about GTD and me... ...

Your webcast host could be working in her pajamas.

More and more people tell me "hey, I talked with your wife today." For those who missed it, she got a job hosting MSDN Webcasts. On some days she has more people listening to her than listen to me (it isn't hard, cause they are getting very popular). Georgeo Pulikkathara breaks the news: more than 60,000 people are signed up for ASP.NET webcasts over the next week or two alone! That's just a freaking huge number of people. Remember, last year's PDC conference was considered an overwhelming success and we had less than 10,000 developers there. At Fawcette we were happy anytime we got more than 1,000 developers to show up.

Don't miss the really interesting part. These are all produced on standard PCs at home!! My wife uses a standard HP laptop -- she is talking live from home. The presenters are working out of their homes. Everything is connected with LiveMeeting. You watch -- and participate -- on your PCs at home. I watch over her shoulder and it's just amazing to see how the world of work and training has changed in just the past few years.

Hey, just think, this entire conference could be participated in by people who are wearing pajamas!

Oh, by the way, you're welcome to participate and the webcasts are free! Subscribe to the RSS feed -- Georgeo is doing a great job of keeping up the schedule.

I wonder when Fast Company is going to start writing about the "pajama revolutionaries?"

Steve Wozniak Part 2: Gnomedex 4.0. From Gnomedex 4.0: The Geeks-Gone-Wild crowd was glued to this rare and brilliant presentation by Steve Wozniak, a geek's geek. It started with games and pranks, crystal-set radios, reading Popular Electronics. Then he met Captain Crunch and got into telco-busting Blue Boxes. Woz wanted to be an HP engineer forever and never thought he'd start a company, but his friend, Steve Jobs, said, "Let's sell it!" at every opportunity. Good thing he did, and good thing HP turned down Woz's offer for the rights to build what would become Apple's first computer. You'll enjoy this -- one of the best from Gnomedex 4.0.
