I’ve read, and written, my share of “I’ve accepted a new job” blog entries over the years, and I always cringe a little when they invariably sound a bit over-earnest or too dramatic. I’m aiming to keep this one on an even keel. I’m thrilled to announce that today is my first day as Vice President, Content Strategy and Planning at Voce.
Not a huge deal, but in case you are converting over from MobileMe to iCloud today, and also use Google Sync, you might want to know this: It only matters for me because I use an Android phone (and an iPad, and a Mac Mini) and have built all of my sync stuff to date… Continue reading File Under Unanticipated iCloud Quirks: Google Sync and iCloud Contacts Don’t Play Nice

A few weeks ago a Flickr user dropped me a piece of Flickr mail asking if she could use one of my photos.
