Yup it is 2008 on the julian calendar…yay.
It seems that most of you are interested in a Huggable Planet (34%) with a trip in a close second (32%). Wayfinding, while popular in the stores is, as to be expected, a bit commonplace for our audience with GPS and Map & Compass coming in at 3rd and 4th respectively. We will have a new poll up in time for the New Year.
We are prepping our 2007 year end closing episode so if you have anything you think is very important for us to note for 2007 leave a comment or send us an email and we will be sure to include it in our wrap up episode when we record on Saturday.
Twas Christmas eve twilight, when all through the lab
Not a creature was stirring, not even a tech;
The maps and routes were all planned out with care,
To help St. Nicholas get from here to there;
The mapmakers were huddled all snug at their desks,
While visions of flight plans danced in their heads;
Santa’s cartographer in his ‘kerchief, his aide in a cap,
Had just settled down for a well-deserved nap,
When out from the printer there arose such a clatter,
They sprang from their desks to see what was the matter.
Away to the monitors they flew like a flash,
And hurriedly checked out the North Pole weathersat.
It is already the 25th for much of the world, so I just wanted to share some holiday cheer before I go to bed and await my haul from jolly old Saint Nick…so with Frank’s chibi as our holiday mascot this year may I wish a Merry Christmas to those who are so inclined.
Be sure to check back tonight for a mini holiday episode in which we offer up about 3 minutes of blunders accompanied by Geoff Smith. 🙂
So we have entered the winter season here in the northern hemisphere (welcome to summer down south). I prefer the winter months during this season, mostly cause the thought of Saint Nick in his swimming trunks is just not for me…nope, no way.
Back in 2005 Podcast hit the dictionaries, but two years later we are truly entering the digital age as Meriam-Webster will be adding the word W00T (I prefer the double zero instead of the o’s). The word is defined as:
expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all); similar in use to the word “yay”
I think you could call w00t a social expletive, though I say that only to ask if we have any spatial expletives. I just can’t think of any.
