This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Now I need something to take photographs with.

A Truly Monstrous Ale

Go out and get Brooklyn Brewery's Brooklyn Monster Ale, a barley wine. Don't chug it, as it's about 11% alcohol.

Supposedly barley wine can be aged; the brewery even has vintages. I'm tempted to buy a case or two and have it sit around.

Wonderful World of Work

Evaluate Motivations Before Job Change

A World of Affordable Choices
Go overseas- because that's where the jobs are going.

"Web 2.0" meets career management and job hunting.

More Jobs Being Found Online, but That Doesn't Mean It's Easy

And if the whole process seems like bullshit, well because it is: | higher news | Say the magic words

Beyond E-Mail and Web Browsing

Someone really needs to come up with a better term for the next generation of Internet applications and services. Hopefuly, it's not "Internet Bubble 2.0".

O'Reilly -- What Is Web 2.0

Anyway, what do I think "Web 2.0" is? I'm not sure, but I can list some distinguishing characteristics: for most of the services, the web browser is the client software. What else? Thin clients. Centralized data. Distributed applications. Open Source bias. AJAX. Mobile integration.

Next generation things I use:
Flickr, BitTorrent, Wikipedia, blogging, tagging

Edit: Also read "Web 2.0: Does it Exist, and Why on Earth Should You Care"
