"Joshua, Congratulations! Yahoo sure does get tagging I see.

Who really does "get" tagging though? Has tagging been monetized yet? Or is it just a feature of the web that we're all cuddly with now, a year an a half later?
The part I want to share has really nothing to do with the story. It's the editor's note that followed: "Editor's Note - This story is a perfect example of how we learn about new features in software and technology during our workday. We've always seen the personalized homepage option inside of Google, but never bothered to play around with it until we started writing this story. We made a brand spanking new Google page in about 3 minutes, complete with Tom's Hardware Guide, Engadget and Digg feeds. We also included a Gmail feed."

As Grandpa G always said First, "enjoy yourself, it's later than you think" Second, "Health, good health is wealth." I feel this year has been prosperous for us all!
I love your ideas for your kitchen and how you have followed through with your ideas.
Happy Easter, son, much love,

She promptly turned and went back to playing blocks.

This was nice to hear. And from Sam Schillace too. Mr. Writely! I've always wanted a simpler presentation application. When you have to take a class or spend 8 hours a day with software to get great results day-in and day-out, something's wrong.
I hope they keep it simple. Don't you?
I'd be amazed if Google could hire hackers who've not been influenced by 37signals. Simple is the new way to get things done. Especially on the web.

On a different topic, but still as colorful: Maddy got her Homestarrunner figure set. Gramma was on hand for the initial playfest. They all accompanied us to dinner. Except Strongbad, who got left behind. He was working on some email...
