I’ve changed a couple of links around on the left hand column. I yanked Gizmodo, which I never check anymore, and replaced it with Engadget, which is an hourly ritual. I also replaced Something Awful (again, not so much with the checking) with Digg, a great (if somewhat wet behind the ears) Slashdot-esque technology site.

I also have to update the “What’s Freyburg reading?” section, as it’s woefully out of date. But that’ll have to wait until I have a free evening, an ever more infrequent event around these parts.

P.S. the title of the post is a very obscure in-joke aimed squarely at Doug Hardy, a guy I used to work with in the early 90’s (my collegeyearssaladdaysetcbbq). We worked at a hotel as room service monkeys, and when we restocked the minibars (a grueling, tedious exercise in uniformed wage slavery that I resented at the time but see as good character building now that I’m no longer a 21-year-old knowitall), Doug would yell “HOOOUUUSSSSEEEKKEEEEEEPPPINNGGG!!!” before entering a room, just to amuse himself. I have my doubts he’ll google his name and find this, but I figured if he did he’d get a chuckle out of it.

Warren Frey is a journalist, freelance writer, podcaster, video producer, and all-around media consultant currently based in Vancouver, Canada. His written work has appeared in such publications as Metro Vancouver, the Westender, Mac | Life and the Japan Times.
