Retired Projects

PVRblog (2003-2010) A topic-centered blog on Personal Video Recorders, this blog ran articles, news, and reviews about all things TiVo, Replay, and other digital recorders. Sold in early 2010 to an internet startup.

The Ticketstub Project (2003-2007) archive.org version) - Ticket stubs are everywhere, one of the many receipts in our daily lives - but we all save some from time to time. The Ticketstub project is a place where you can upload scanned images of your saved stubs, and tell a story about that night, that concert, that movie, what happened on that date, and other people can share their experiences as well.

BlogRoots (2001-2005) - Community site for general weblog-related discussions, as a companion site to the book We Blog from Wiley Publishing. Featured topical discussion, a resource directory, and sample chapters from the book.

SXSWBlog (2001-2004 SXSWbaby! picked up where it left off) - A community weblog created for the annual South By Southwest Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas. This innovative site offered shared notes from conference panels, photo galleries, posts from participants, and comments on every contribution. It ran from 2001 though 2004 and was built in partnership with PBcoding.
