Walking at work ...

Why do we information workers have to sit all day? Sitting during conference calls, sitting during meetings, sitting and typing, why, why, why? Couldn't I stand for a while? How about chatting while walking, would that be acceptable?

Dr. James Levine at the Mayo Clinic's NEAT Lab asked these same questions, and came up with a great answer. A treadmill for your office. Check out the USAtoday article and the article on Squidoo. This is such a great idea.

 Now wouldn't it be great to combine this idea and a SunRay? Then you could be walking on your treadmill, or strolling through a hall way and when you needed to work or type, just plug in your badge and have your computer session up and running. That would be totally slick.

Now how do I convince Sun that I should have one of these in my office? I'll have to start with my boss.

Friends and Poetry ....

This evening I was working on the redesign of the OpenSolaris Storage Community web site. Thanks to Paul, Deirdre (a belated welcome to the Sun clan Deirdre!) and others the new pages are really coming along. Thanks guys! But I have a short attention span and was wondering how to create a custom blog feed for all of the "interesting" storage blogs. In my searching I stopped at my Google Reader page and noticed it had been a while since I last read ANYTHING. ... ooohh something new to look at ...

I read about Claire and her decision to Seize the day. And I read 3 entries from my meteorology friend about National Poetry Month. During my schooling I hated poetry. I never understood it and I never could memorize anything. It was not until graduate school that I learned that you don't have to memorize poetry and that just listening can be very inspiring. Letting my mind drift to another place caught in the rhyme of someone else's words sounds very appealing. I think I'll be following Dave's blog this month and suggest that the kids might want to read the poems to their dear ol dad. Hopefully they can find the joy in these words earlier in life and I.

Well back to web sites and RSS readers ....

iPod + Nike = more spending?

Over at The Cult of Mac Blog there is an interesting post about what happend when two monster brands link up. Take one part "music" device and one part shoe and you get a system that tracks your progress.

It sounds very cool and it a great marrage of technology and real life. But how much money do I want to give to these companies?

Back from Break ...

Happy New Year!

It was just great getting away from work for a week. I actually didn't read any e-mail for 10 days. This is pretty amazing for me (and way too many people as technically attached as I).

This break was spent the way I needed it. With family. I had the great opportunity to play cards withmy son and daughter. It is quite fun trying to teach a 5 year old Texas Hold 'Em .... not that I really know how to play either :-) We also had the opportunity to see Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Chase and I had read this back a few years ago and I found the move to be quite good. Some flaws with the cinematography, but the script seem to flow well and matched the best elements of the book.

Dispite not having my sister around, we all found God's blessings this holiday and look forward to the promise of a New Year!
