A begining

I've been meaning to start this project for a while now so here it goes... Part of my daily routine is reading a couple of comics including Calvin and Hobbes, Dilbert, Foxtrot, Garfield, xkcd, vgcats, and The Watering Hole. Following the quick comic catch up I'll look through some various project blogs including Ampache, django, YUI, and facebook. But the highlight of my reading has always been what Google is up to. On this front my favorite blogs have been Google Operating System, Googlefied, and Google…


The design and domain have been set up (actually I finished it a week or so ago but work's been keeping me pretty crazy). All my examples will be implemented on gPowered.net as well as a copy of theses posts. Enjoy.

Site Update: Post list and Links section

I Added an easier way to go through the posts I'v put on blogger and the site. Quick tutorial on it is here. Also added a Links section that pull from my Google Bookmarks. HOWTO is here

gPowered.net update: Diggs and HOWTO list

Quick update while I'm sitting here waiting for my friends in Seattle to get home from work, and its dinner time in NY, I need food! Anyway, I added the Digg count and HOWTO lists to the Post List page as YUI tabview tabs.

By the Power of Grayskull.... I mean Google

Most of my friends got the reference to the "By the Power of Google" tagline that I chose to use for gPowered. Being a child of the 80's I had the privilege to watch some of the greatest cartoons ever created. One of those, was He-Man where one of the popular lines is "BY THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL." When I was throwing around taglines with "powered by" (powered by Google), He-Man's line kept popping into my head and stuck. If you don't know what He-Man is, check out the short summery from wikipedia. The show…

Comments turned on

For various reasons, I had these turned off initially when i started gPowered. I've now turned them on.

New Blog Address

After doing quite a bit of reading over at Yaro Starak's Entrepreneur's Journey and Darren Rowse's ProBlogger.net I've decided to move gPowered onto my domain at http://blog.gpowered.net/. Over the coming days/weeks I'll be updating the template on the rest of the domain to coincide more with the blog, as well as adding the top menu to the blog. The blog is still powered by blogger and the old address nicely forwards to the new one, posts included. I also updated the FeedBurner feed so if you use that to…


Hi all, I've been away for a while and for this I apologize. It's been a combination of work, real life, and traveling (both for work and for fun). Since my last post I've been to Tokyo, Southern Ireland, Paris, London, and Colorado, the longest stint being in London where I was working for a while. Check out my photos below. A lot has happened in my absence. At the top of my list are Android, Open Social, the Social Graph, and many many more. Just this morning RIM released an eclipse plugin for their IDE…

Added a tag cloud

I haven't been to crazy about how Blogger's default tag/label list looks lately. On some of my shorter posts it was taking up most of the vertical space on the page. I looked around to see if I could find a more traditional tag cloud. I found a pretty good (and very easy) tutorial and just installed it. I have to play with the colors a bit but I like the way it looks.

Got my Google appengine account!

But someone already registered gpowered =( ![](https://3.bp.blogspot.com/_Ng3QbVQfLZ8/SCDxA_mVqRI/AAAAAAAARz8/mPX39zsC2Vk /s400/no_gpowered.jpg)

Social Badges

So, for whatever reason. I never added my social network badges to this site. I should have, a long time ago. Feel free to follow me on FriendFeed or Twitter, be my friend on Facebook or linkedin, see what I've Dugg or listened to, take a look at my photos, and more. Will definitly be seeing how this effects my social graph FriendFeed Twitter Blog Facebook Digg Google Reader Last.fm ![Picasa Web Albums](https://gpowered.net/php/imag es/picasa.png) ![LinkedIn](http: //gpowered.net/php/images/linkedin.png…
