I'm typing this post from backstage at the 2008 Web 2.0 Summit where Rebecca McKinnon and Isaac Mao are delivering their presentations right now. Mr. Al Gore is standing a few feet away here, with Joel Hyatt, both co-founders of Current. Mr. Gore is very graciously accommodating a flood of autograph requests, and he will be taking the stage at 4:30. The joint is filling up in anticipation of his speech. I've been in and out of sessions here for the past three days, and there's been great stuff nonstop. Two of my favorite sessions so far are embedded here, and there's much more online.

Want to keep the dentist away? A little tooth care at morning and night isn’t bad, but it won’t keep the stains from smoking or fried foods at bay for long. If you enjoy your food and want to avoid the consequences, an upgrade from that old analog toothbrush can make a huge difference. Among […]
If your office works at all, it uses Microsoft Office. Those icons for Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook are as familiar around some workplaces as the coffee machine. So familiar, in fact, that they get taken for granted – and rarely used to their full potential. Whether you need a crash course in the essential tools […]
It’s a great time to be a maker. 3D printers are on store shelves for anyone to buy, and coder kits like Arduino and Raspberry Pi are letting kids as young as 9 or 10 dive into the Internet of Things. Here are a few examples of our favorite tech toys, all priced low enough […]
