Interesting lessons from FORTH. The author's conclusion is spot-on.
Vimeo has always been a fantastic service - their support of the creative community is great, and the quality of some of the videos people create and host there is simply incredible.
They've just announced a set of simple-to-use services and tools to help content creators, including a "tip jar" and "pay-to-view" (coming in 2013). This is great, and I'm certain this will help generate even better and better videos by all the incredibly creative people that there are out there.

I've been involved with the Amazon Kindle since the beginning, and I am happy to say (once again) that I am very proud of the devices we have created.
lifehacker has a great article that explains how to get into watercooling your PC.
I currently use a closed-loop fixed system (Antec Kuler H2O in a push-pull configuration using a pair of Cooler Master Excaliburs) which works great for my needs. (But my CPU does still run a little hot when I crank it up to 4.9GHz...hmmm....)
