• Decisions, Decisions…

    May 17, 2010 Jake DiMare

    It’s time for a new performance desktop computer at home. Being as nerdy as I truly am, normally this would be a reason for celebration. However, in recent years deciding what to buy has become a complex operation involving spreadsheets, planning and intricate decision trees. I jest…but there are some important things to decide here.…

  • Web 3.0?

    May 14, 2010 Jake DiMare

    I’m wondering if anyone else wants to weigh in. In recent months I have read web 3.0 will be the web of things, the video web and the semantic web. I decided to do a little exploration and there are a couple of other, more interesting definitions. For instance: – When web 2.0 services become…

  • The good old days…

    April 29, 2010 Jake DiMare

    The weather’s been cold in Boston for a few weeks so I’ve been catching up on Seinfeld on cable. It’s weird moments like this when I realize how old I am. Seinfeld’s been off the air for more than ten years. They are still hilarious though…

    Ever heard of Raymond Kurzweil? He’s this really smart inventor and futurist who has an uncanny knack for making scarily accurate predictions about the development of technology. But I’m not talking about┬áNostradamus┬átype nonsense…Kurzweil is a serious scientist and a respected author. He’s testified before congress because of his deep knowledge regarding AI, Nanotech and Biotech.…

  • Anyway you slice it…The Universe is wicked big…

    March 24, 2010 Jake DiMare

    A few weeks back I wrote a slightly misguided article on the dimensions of the Universe. I sent my questions on this topic to one of the world’s preeminent astrophysicists, Dr. Neil Tyson deGrasse, and he actually got back to me. He then referred me to a colleague named Prof. Tim Paglione, Ph.D who was…

  • New studio addition…

    March 22, 2010 Jake DiMare

    My brother Max sent me a gift certificate to Guitar Center for my birthday. Yesterday I picked up the next (and last…for a while) addition to the home studio…An Ibanez RG350. It’s black on black with a maple next…Absolutely stunning. And it shreds. I have wanted one ever since I was a teenager, which may…

  • Sunny days…

    March 18, 2010 Jake DiMare

    The weather here in Boston is starting to warm up and the sun’s been out for a few days. I pulled the motorcycle out of storage last night and the first ride felt, well…Great. Adding to my good mood, my cat seems as though he might pull through. The last few days he has not…

  • I want to go to college…

    March 11, 2010 Jake DiMare

    It is starting to feel more and more real to me. The fact I was a bad student and didn’t go to college is in the past and I am certainly OK with it. It has never really held me back in terms of my career and I firmly believe there is something to be…

  • Well, I'm no doctor but…

    March 8, 2010 Jake DiMare

    I had a spill skiing over the weekend. Well, to be honest…I had three spills. Two of them were spectacular, cartwheeling, yard sale type falls on a steep run. They resulted in a lot of snow going down the back of my coat and once being forced to suffer the indignity of an 8 year…
