First post for the Kauffman Foundation and a quick update

I just made my first post to the Kauffman Foundation's eVenturing blog.  If you are interested in entrepreneurship, I hope you'll subscribe to their feed.  Ken Berlack does a daily post of interesting articles, blogs and news about entrepreneurship, and he just did a series of posts about his time last week at DEMOfall '06.

I've made some more progress on the FJ Car Computer project.  Streaming Internet radio (lookout XM!) and Virtual Earth satellite overlays on the navigation screen.  More details later.

Last week I went three days straight without touching my keyboard, except to login first thing in the morning.  The rest of the time I used the new speech recognition capabilities built into Microsoft Vista, the next version of Windows.  I answered all of my emails, wrote a couple of documents, installed software and (get this) even edited my computer's registry - all with my voice.  I can still probably type faster, but it would be a close race.

Finally, this weekend I wrote some code for the first time in a long time.  It was a lot of fun and it might even be useful.  More on that in another post.
