We recently printed some business cards for our Stack Exchange employees and they turned out great.
It got us thinking: our sites' moderators have been working hard to keep our sites high quality for the past few years. They may not be employees, per se, but great community moderators are why ou...
It would be nice to get Jeff's video switching in. Right now with Joel and Marco occupying 100% of the screen, it seems like all of Jeff's contributions will be viewed as butting-in to a conversation between two people.
@Hogan You're RIGHT! How could I have been so silly. $12,000 sounds like a MUCH better deal than $1,500 ... wtf was I thinking? (how could you suggest something like that when they need something flexible and easy to use and reconfigure at any point in time, and that they can do in about 2 hours one day since they already have a blueprint for the model?)
PointCast was a company founded in 1992 by Christopher R. Hassett in Sunnyvale, California.
The company's initial product amounted to a screensaver that displayed news and other information, delivered live over the Internet.

Things I want/need weren't ready to go on release, so I delayed upgrading.
@JoelSpolsky Jeff recently referred to the the Favorites feature on SO as marking something that's "worth revisiting, for whatever reason", but isn't that just bookmarking? Since I don't think the feedback favoriting gives is utilised in any way, is favoriting even the right word? I kind of feel like "favoriting" implies it's in the same class as "Like" or "+1".
