I just picked up a Magic Trackpad to change things up a little bit. I’d been using a Logitech Revolution MX (one of the best mice ever) for almost four years (!!) and I decided I wanted to give trackpads a try. Much to my chagrin, the trackpad was a mess, skipping, skittering, and jumping across the screen when connected to my Bluetooth dongle, a bog standard iOGear model I purchased years ago. I thought it was a software update, but it wasn’t.
Charlie and I are pleased to announce our first web course featuring one-on-one time with Charlie and I online during the run of the program. It’s a 12-week writing course with a focus on blogging and it should take you 20 minutes or so a day to go through the sections, videos, exercises and discussions.
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!

I’ve stayed out of this mess so far simply because my team and site had been so far removed from the day-to-day TC rigamarole that I felt at least slightly out of touch with the internal politics associated with Mike’s firing and the rest of it all. The gadgets and mobile guys all work for TC, obviously, but we were never part of the whole he-said-she-said world of start-ups and funding that helped TC really take off. The CG/MC team were booster engines, at best, offering that last push to send the site into orbit.
Here it is, folks: the book on writing for blogs by Charlie White (of Mashable) and I. Pick it up now at Amazon for $20 or grab it on the Kindle for $16. We’ll be doing some very interesting things in the next few weeks as well, so stay tuned.
