one thing jeremy noted about web 2.0 is that he plugged feedmesh at the “dialing on the app tone” session. too bad the effort seems stuck. no other sites appear to have moved any further along on sharing the ping data that they are currently receiving. the only change is that i have introduced a stream of changes that nobody is using.

phone home

every once in a while, i poke around on amazon to find a new cordless phone (perhaps a multi-handset one). then i see that they all have caller id screens, and get annoyed at how much caller id costs. what earthly reason is there for caller id costing over $6 per month?

another thing i’m considering doing is ditching my monthly cell phone plan and just getting a prepaid card whenever i’m going to be on the road. one problem is that the prepaid plans don’t appear to offer any international service. (i know i can just buy prepaid cards in whatever country i happen to travel to, but that doesn’t really help people trying to reach me.)

i think i could add up all of the time i’ve used on my cell phone since i got it (over a year ago, now), and it wouldn’t exhaust what i’m paying to get each month.
