Devin Reams wearing a teal shirt in front of a teal sign that says 'trouble'

Howdy! I’m Devin. I’m sensibly impulsive, consistently non-committal, and passionately impartial. I’m a technologist living in Denver, Colorado.

Sunday Fun

Monday is near. I found this video and it reminded me that college isn’t so bad. You get to find some real talent. Anyway, you’ll probably enjoy the video. Deep down I, too, am a white kid with a guitar singing a collection of rap songs. Personally, I would’ve thrown some Sean Paul in…

Live vs Google Domains

Scoble is upset because people are talking more about Google than Microsoft. Nathan is also expressing his concern.

Tip: Get Less Junk Mail

Sick of getting credit offers that you never initiated? I get at least 3 credit-card offers each week. There’s an easy way to stop these:

Traffic Graphs

Seth almost tricked me. The site he’s referring to is Wikipedia (notably almost identical to MySpace). Click here for the graph.

Gmail for College

Looks like Garett was right!

Dealing With Stress: Proactive

When you look at stress in the long-run you’re no longer ‘dealing’ with it but merely ‘managing’ it. If you’re prepared to become stressed then you won’t be shocked when it hits. These are some thoughts I’ve compiled:

Colorado Weather

I woke up yesterday and it was 50 degrees. This whole week’s average has has been barely more than 60. When I wake up it’s typically the coldest part of the day (around 10-20 degrees). But 50 degrees at 7:00 in the morning?! Noon rolled around and the clouds settled, wind raced down the hills… it started to get downright nasty! Clear blue sky by 2:00p. Then, I look out my window around 11:00p to find three inches of snow. The temperature is now 18. This is a typical day in Colorado…

Blogging BzzAgent

Seth points to the 90 Days of BzzAgent blog. I’m **very **glad to see this. I had emailed Dave last year suggesting he harness the power of blogs (the BeeLog sucked). Heck, searching for ‘balter grapevine’ turned up BusinessBits as the first result for quite some time. In any case, this is how Dave Balter described the 90 days blog in his email to John: *“It’s like a reality show.

Typing to Recharge

A friend asked me a great question about laptops today: why not have the typing action recharge the battery? Hmmm, yeah! Why not?!

Switch to Yahoo!?

Yahoo’s incentives to switch suck (for a few reasons). First, I don’t see a single thing that interests me. If Yahoo paid me, I’d gladly switch over and use it (exclusively). I doubt that will happen but hey, I love to complain/rave about anything and everything. Wait, here’s an idea: make your stuff work better than the other guys. How is it easier to spend money on consumers rather than the product? This old quote is straight from the Yahoo BlogThis commitment to being the best should be crystal clear from our investments in talented people, research, innovation and new products“. Where do the incentives fit in that list of investments?
