Internet

SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act) are just the latest two examples that the United States government are either a)totally ignorant to how the Internet works or b)they truly are in the back pocket of the media conglomerates. Have you ever used an image you found on Google without asking permission?  You… read more

It seems like just yesterday I would fight with a 9600 baud modem to log on to CompuServe, usually taking several tries to get a solid connection.  When I worked up to a 56 Kbps modem, I thought I was rocking good speeds, but luckily there was a lot more to come.  Around 2000 I… read more

You do realize that thanks to the Internet that just about every piece of information is available at your fingertips 24/7, right? Of course you do, and that’s because you have a brain. Apparently the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department and two California television stations aren’t all that bright. It would seem that the… read more

Yeah … Google Hot Trends has been busted yet again. As a professional blogger I check in with Google Hot Trends at least a couple times a day to see what the Internet as a whole is talking about. This system reports on the 20 most searched on terms via the Google search engine for… read more

The Internet is filled with companies offering all kinds of services, and one of the perks is that the majority of them are free.

The popular micro blogging service Twitter turned 3-years-old today. I had no clue that today was the third anniversary of the service (I have enough trouble keeping track of my own important dates!) until I read it over at Mashable.  Considering some of the rough patches they have had with down time over the years,… read more

As a news junkie and a history junkie, I have to say that Google’s newspaper archive is just about as fascinating as it gets. Announced on the official Google blog the other day, it appears the monolithic search company is going to attempt scanning and indexing just about every North American newspaper ever.  They are… read more

Back in April of this year, I did one of the largest lists I had ever done for Mashable: Dating Toolbox: 120+ Sites For Singles To Find Love.  I thought I had hit the majority of the dating sites out there when I even found one dedicated to farmers, but somehow I completely missed The… read more

Back in May I publiched a post named “Microsoft Walks Away From Yahoo“… I’m not 100% sure that was correct. In what has become a saga fit for any daytime drama, it appears that Microsoft and Yahoo started talking again, with corporate raider Carl Icahn thrown into the mix somehow.  Mr. Icahn has been calling… read more

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) group, the people responsible for regulating the rules of domain names, passed a new measure today that could either be the greatest idea ever, or the worst. According to Times Online, people will be able to purchase pretty much any top level domain they can think… read more

As part of the nature of the AnimeUSA business, we end up doing 26 conventions around the country each year. We go in, set up for the weekend, sell for 3 days, pack up and do it all over again.  As we currently work it, it is my parents who go out to the conventions… read more
