Use Foldershare

Posted by sprague on March 17, 2006

Oh boy, Terry, if you’re using Lookout, you’ve really got to go take another look at the MSN Search toolbar.  There is one HUGE reason to use MSN Search: it integrates well with another Microsoft-owned product: http://www.foldershare.com

With Foldershare, not only can you search every one of your computers from any other computer (Mac, Treo 700w, TRS-80), you can also view those documents in any HTML browser.  I use it all the time from my Treo.  No wonder Microsoft doesn’t talk about Lookout anymore.

Douglas Hofstadter

Posted by sprague on March 2, 2006

I’m so envious of Sean, who went to the lecture by Douglas Hofstadter at Stanford on Monday. I read that book in high school and remember attending the author’s signing ceremony on one of my very first days at Stanford.

His father, a Nobel Prize-winner, taught my freshman physics class. I wonder what that family talks about at Thanksgiving dinners.
