Tweetree

I’m not always a big fan of 3rd party Twitter apps (beyond the desktop apps) as most are still either pretty rudimentary or focused more on ego-stroking than anything else. However, this is pretty darn nifty (especially if you use the Twitter web page more than anything else): Tweetree puts your Twitter stream in a tree so you can see the posts people are replying to in context. It also pulls in lots of external …

Fallacy of Twitter Authority Based on Followers

Michael Arrington backing up Loic Le Meur’s call for something akin to a Twitter PageRank algorithm with authority based on the number of followers: Should Twitter Add Authority-based Search?: “I’m with him on this.

John Chrysostom’s Homily on Christmas

John Chrysostom is a very important (and very interesting) figure of early Christianity.  Plus, he was an amazing preacher. Here’s one of my fav homilies that are ascribed to him: “Behold a new and wondrous mystery. My ears resound to the Shepherd’s song, piping no soft melody, but chanting full forth a heavenly hymn. The Angels sing. The Archangels blend their voice in harmony. The Cherubim hymn their joyful praise. The Seraphim exalt His glory. …

Additionally, I feel much more comfortable producing web content when …
