iStarted Thunk Different on 4/20/07 as a personal journal shortly after it was announced that Apple’s OS X installment of Leopard was delayed. The blog has grown considerably since i started it and receives a few hundred to thousands hits a day. iHave since created a community forum for people that need support or wish to join the discourse when the blog is simply not enough for the super inquisitive. You may join the apple forum here.

Now, iLike Apple & their design team, but not everything they do. i’ll let you know what i like, what i don’t and encourage readers to do the same. if you like something, say something. if you don’t like something, say something. The photo above was taken of me in Brooklyn, NY on the first day iGot my new Macbook. iSold it due to a weak graphics card and small screen and upgraded to something that would never be mistaken for a toy, the powerful, MBP, with a show iam making with some friends.

iF you need any tips, designing, or with mac programs, I’ll help you out if iHave the time, either SMS, email, use Twitter, or call my 1.0 phone number to request assistance/contact/or leave filthy, dirty comments, i’ll post them.

Thunk Different is part of the 2.0 weblogs collective.

    I watched the debates & did some behind the scenes virtual work for the Huffington post & came away with somewhat similar conclusions. What 2-3 videos do you think will be the “water cooler” videos? How about the candidates response, which moments were the “Blink” moments which either struck you as seminal and salient moments (or sound bites)?
    My takeaways were…..

  3. On the Democratic You Tube Debate:

    “Water Cooler Moments” Hmmm.

    -When Barack said he would meet with leaders and called the current Bush administration’s diplomatic efforts, “ridiculous”

    -The Lesbian video was cute, the snowman one was cuter. The guys from Tennesee wer funny, CNN kept showing the grin of Edwards which was a little strange.

    -John Edwards seems impassioned to take on sig interests.
    -Hillary made a feminist joke in good taste
    -Barack was questioned about his blackness and threw out the “cab in manhattan” scenario/joke.

    -When Cooper Anerson said they couldn’t find anyone left of Dennis Kucinich, that was really quick and made up for his persnickety “time” chimes and slight badgering of the candidates.

    -The fact that most democrats seems united and made comments along the lines of, “any of us would be a better president than George Bush.”

    There you have it seminal & salient, i thought that it was one of the better debates i have seem on TV that has been broadcast in my lifetime. i really enjoyed it.

    Oh… Readers: Questions & things should go on the post it is relating to, however now you know this much more about me, in the About Me section.
