Host Your Own Domain, Website and Webserver

This post was originally published on 13 July, 2006.  This version has been updated. I have a problem with facebook, myspace, and other social networking websites out there.  The problem is when I upload my data to their webservers….I don’t own it anymore.  They do.  And they can do whatever they want with it once it is there. With this in mind, I’d rather setup my own twitter using Status.net or my own digg using Pligg.  But I’d do it … Continue Reading →

Yet many websites quote them … Continue Reading →

Blogbridge, Simply the Best RSS

I’ve been asked by various people how I keep up to date with technology news, research, and the latest reports…mainly because I’m never at a loss for words when discussing something (big mouth much?).
