Bloglines, that is… This cool site provides me one place that I can view all the internet content that interests me. Previously, I used to have a MyYahoo page and a MyMSN page to aggregate all that content. Now it’s all on one easily navigated page. A couple things I still haven’t figured out, like how to get local sports scores and movie times, but for the most part, it’s all there.

Yesterday was Kyle’s 14th birthday. I had a comittment to do a presentation for our Education line of business at Babson College, so I took Kyle along. It was the first time he’s ever seen me speak publicly. I sprinkled a good amount of humor into it, and I thought it went well. When I asked Kyle what he thought, he had but a one word response: “humiliating.” I see. In spite of being viciously panned by my own son, we went straight to the mall to grab (another) present. His new Darth Vader lightsaber is one nasty tool. When you turn it on, the beam of red light shoots up the blade while the digital sound effects wail. The beam shut off in the opposite direction. So cool. He was a very happy evil Sith Lord.

Finally, I’m guessing this is just an internet hoax, but it’s so well done, I can’t tell for sure. The Focus Fusion Society claims to be developing the Plasma Focus Device for hydrogen-boron nuclear fusion… Hmmmmm….
