If any readers are in the Boston MA area this weekend, consider stopping by for the lecture I'll be giving at Newton Wellesley Hospital 12/01/2007 at 2:00 PM
I received my first hard copy of The GenoType Diet. Beautiful cover. Felt like crying a bit, as waves of feelings came over me. This was a hard, hard, book to write. Two years, two co-authors, two editors. But it had to be written. In fact, it almost wrote itself. Pre-orders have sent the book up to #74 on amazon.com, which is pretty good considering that it doesn't officially come out until December 26th. GTD is probably my most readable and lyrical book since ER4YT. I hope you like it.
Speaking of feelings, can you listen to Steve Job's address to the 2005 graduating class at Stanford University and not be touched on some very deep level?
Why not watch it and find out?
Added a new channel on YouTube for the GenoType Diet Videos. Three have been uploaded already. The link is on the right, under 'Blogroll' but for all you lazy-bones, here it is:
I've finally gone to a 'commercial' blogging software package, in this case Wordpress. The change has mostly come from a need to have the so-called syndication (RSS, or 'really simple syndication') act in what programmers call a 'well-behaved' manner. This is important because author blogs can now be linked to places likewww.amazon.com</em>.
If you were getting RSS syndication of my older blog, you should add this site as a new live bookmark.
In the past we've used a program called GreyMatter, but the author has long ago stopped developing it. Much of the syndication scripting was simply hand-hacked by yours truly on an 'as needed' basis .
I'm going to give it a try, then see if it is worth porting over to the remaining bloggers. One thing GreyMatter did well was allow you to run multiple blogs out of the same package. It also had the convenience of having been written in Perl, a language I like to work in. However, not a whole lot of BTD blogging is going on these days, so perhaps I'll convert the remaining active bloggers (Suzanne Graham comes to mind and perhaps there are a few others) and move the rest to a searchable archive.
Doing a series of short films for the GenoType Diet website. They're mostly 'how-to' type movies that center on teaching people about doing the GenoType measurements. I've upgraded to Final Cut Pro 6 and I am entirely happy with it.
