The new and (un)improved False Positives!

I've Moved over to so update your bookmarks and web / rss feed! (I beleive the Feedburnerfeed is switched)

all the "old" content is here, till I import it (somehow).

I've still got a lot of learning and hacking to do, but its happening.

I expect the only changes here will be changes to the template.

It's dead Jim! (and yes I'm using the forbiden blink tag)

Sushi Lessons

via Dan Gillmor's blog we have Noriko Takiguchi's series of Sushi Lessons "How to eat sushi properly".

A gentle guide to the novice and those eager to learn more - history, etiquette, foodie isum, and plus a little San Francisco Bay / Silicon Valley Area sushi restaurant guide in 5 parts (so far). Parts inculde: 1 : read the signs, 2: some history; 3: The Encounter, 4: The order, 5: about soy sauce. The comments and responses are also well worth reading.

Looking forward to more on this and other "Living Japanese in Silicon Valley." topics. and it provides a counterbalance to Ontario's Sushi Wars madness last year (resolved). Tags: ; Technorati Tags:
