Oh yeah – it’s TEDtalk time – this one

is about using a tool from Microsoft (of all people) to sift and view large amounts of data – incorporates a tool called Seadragon too!

another neat thing – just last week, when I rearranged the living room (yet again) I was trying to keep the wires for my desk area neat and clean. On my little docking station for my laptop was a power button – odd I thought. So when I hooked up the lappytop to the dock, and pressed the power buttion – viola! – up comes my computer on the screen, without having to open/touch the laptop! too cool. Then, when I do open the lid to the laptop the dock is smart enough to hand off the video/audio back to the laptop – I unplug from the dock and grab it and go – so very neat!!

I might need to get outside more…
