Was out eating at a great place I like to dine at when all of a sudden one of my teeth shattered and it was late at night I tryed calling several Dentists in Nashville from the eatery but none were open, one of the other customers eating at the same place was a Dentist and saw me holding my jaw and calling around town for Dentists and was nice enough to bring me and my date to the his office where he fixed my tooth in less than ten minutes. Was so cool of him that I figured I had to share with the world my little dental experience since he not only fixed my tooth at such a late hour of the night but he did it at cost to him which was not much. Any one looking for a cool Nashville Dentist needs to call this very cool guy Dr. Michael Vaughan

Since taking over the reins of the Web Standards Project from Steve Champeon in early 2004, Molly Holzschlag has led the group though an important phase of its life. Through the development of our successful Task Forces, Molly has helped steer the Project through a significant course change. The close relationships our Task Forces have developed with browser vendors such as Opera and Microsoft are a strong example of our shift from mostly adversarial campaigning to a more consultative and collaborative role.
Molly has done great work as cat herder in chief, and were immensely proud of her and grateful for everything shes done to date. All good things come to an end, however, and in the old showbiz tradition of leaving them wanting more, Molly has decided that now would be a good time to step down from the Group Lead role and focus her efforts within the Task Forces she holds such passion for. We do, of course, support Molly in this decision, and would like to publicly recognize the things shes helped the Project achieve during her tenure as Group Lead.
Looking forward, long-standing WaSP members Kimberly Blessing and Drew McLellan are taking on the roles of group leadership into 2007.
From me : I think Molly did a great job and have no doubt that Kimberly and Drew are going to just as well if not better if that is even possible. Look forward to another great year of standards based postsand news.
Verizon to allow ads on its mobiles
Starting next year Verizon Wireless is going to allow advertisements more than likely banner ads on it’s news, weather, sports and other internet sites that users visit and display them on their mobile phones company executives have been quoted as saying
Verizon officials have said their going to slowly start to intorduce this new method of advertising early next year and in my opinon will be paying close attention to users reactions to this new revenue stream and gauge if the cost of dealing with compliants from users and lost users will cost them less then the profits generated by this new stream of revenue which is estimated by many industry say will exceed the billions by 2010 but Verizon will limit where ads can appear, and exclude certain kinds of video clips which may invite greater demand to place ads then they space for.
Alot of questions need to be answered such as as will it cost us the consumers our airtime to view the ads? And what kind of information will be collected by these advertising companiesa and what will and can they do with it.And example would be if cookies were stored on your phone then the advertiser starts sending me text messages because they know my number? If you ask me this is a bad idea for consumers but cery profitable to the companies, so it is no longer a question of if but when and the only thing we consumers can do is not click on them and complain about them if we do not want see ads on our mobile devices.
I am no doubt going to switch wireless providers if ads start showing up on my phone I am so pissed the last thing I need in my life is another ad for something I do not want or am ever going to buy.
