Appearance on The Morning Show in Australia

Earlier I wrote about my experience on Australian TV. They’ve put the clip up on The Morning Show website but they don’t allow direct links or have an embedding feature, so I did some digging in the JS/Flash code and put it below.

They put in a photo montage so some of my family, friends, and co-workers are famous in Australia too.


If anyone wants to know how to embed videos from this site or other Yahoo TV sites, let me know and I’ll post more details. They really ought to just stick each video on it’s own URL and add some embed widgets. It’s not too hard to do, and it’s part of the reason YouTube became so popular.

Baby Name Poll Closes Tomorrow – Way To Go, Internet

Thanks to everyone who voted and sent us your suggestions. We’re getting very close to the due date, so I’m officially shutting down votes tomorrow. We’ve decided to make the final choice once the baby is born, just in case the kid has some suggestions of their own. Watch this space for news, hopefully soon.

In the mean time, here are a few things I’ve learned:

  • Spreadsheets are the next frontier in web2.0 social networking. No kidding.
  • Blog posts about babies are much more popular than posts about statistics.
  • Let random people vote on a baby name over the internet, and a few will spam the form or enter nasty stuff, but the vast majority will give you helpful suggestions. Way to go, Internet.

Here’s the form, get your vote in by end of day Friday, November 14th.

If you can’t see the poll, follow this link to get to it.
