Like many of us, I’ve been thinking a lot about Steve Jobs the last few days — thinking about the man and his legacy. I’ve been having some trouble even understanding the way I feel, let alone being able to put it into words. Lots of folks have asked me what I think, and have been surprised that I…

La chouette est aussi la mascotte de l’atelier Perrousseaux.

Here is video of a member of the NYPD hitting and running over a legal observer with his scooter, then getting off the scooter to beat him. Great job, guys.
Mesdames, Mesdemoiselles, Messieurs, bonjour.
Aujourd’hui, j’ai l’immense plaisir de vous présenter un blog qui rappelle le JT de Jean-Pierre Pernaut.
Ce blog résume à lui seul la philosophie de ce journaliste pour qui tout est “fabuleux, superbe, magnifique, extraordinaire” comme l’atteste cette vidéo.
Scarpa Alien 1.0
If money is no object and you only care about getting up and down the mountain under your own steam as quickly as possible, the Scarpa Alien 1.0 is the boot for you. Okay, that describes about a hundred people in North America. We’re including one of the world’s lightest and most expensive boots not because of broad appeal, but as an example of the cutting edge of technology. The Alien 1.0 is designed for randonee racing, where ski mountaineers climb to a summit and then descend—the boot has to be as light as possible for the uphill, but still flex like a ski boot for the downhill. Rather than build an entire boot out of carbon fiber, which would be gossamer light but too stiff, Scarpa made a carbon cuff and carbon-fortified lower, getting incredible rigidity where you need it without losing the ability to make turns. With a minimum of padding, it’s not all that comfortable … but it sure is fast ($1,799; www.scarpa.com).

The newly optimized Tumblr web view for iPhone and Android
There’s an interesting genre of blog that is more about the community than the author.

Tumblr has always been uniquely suited for this type of blog. In fact, 6 of them have gone from Tumblr blog to book deal in the last year.
