nerd merit badges is a cool idea, but they need more. many more

ell found this excellent site (parodied here) which puports to allow you to talk to geek girls for $3 a minute. It's kinda tempting to give it a try next time i need some unix sysadmin assistance, though i suspect the girls might be less geeky than they claim :)

lunch today with robert scoble (microsoft), tim bray (w3c/xml) and some other geeks in vancouver. after scoble mentioned that he'd given bill a demo of flickr (woo!), he spoke about how he searches weblogs (via technorati) for microsoft product mentions, then in the case of somebody complaining about a feature, forwards a link to the person in charge of the product. i mean, wow. if you post on your weblog about some missing feature in outlook, the outlook project manager might well end up reading that. who would have thought that ms was such a responsive company?

only a few days in vancouver and i find myself hoplessly addicted to jolt cola. with a seven-eleven about 10 metres from the office, i'm doomed to a sugary death. yay!

is learning pi to 1500 digits any more than an impressive (geek) party trick? would it actually be useful in a mathematical sense, or even just in a memory training sense?
