2006 FIFA World Cup

Yahoo has launched the official 2006 FIFA World Cup site at http://fifaworldcup.yahoo.com. It’s an awesome news site. Although I suspect ESPN’s Soccernet Site runs it close here Meanwhile, Archimedes Ventures (disclosure – that’s me) has launched The Soccer Channel. Over time we plan to evolve it into a soccer super site, covering all of the primary leagues in the world. It’s core is Drupal, which means it has blogs, stories, forums, and collaborative book writing. Think of it as the Fans site. Not mainly for news but for views. You can post text, pictures, video objects from Youtube, and file

Cape Town

I take the family to Cape Town each year around Thanksgiving. We have a home here – in St James, overlooking the Indian Ocean. My Wife, Gené is South African and the children’s grandparents and an Aunt live here. This year is no exception and we set off on Saturday morning at 5.30am. We arrived in Cape Town (via New York; Dakar; Johanesburg) on Sunday evening at 10.15pm local time (12.15pm Pacific). I have set up call forwarding of all my home phones to Skype (Skype in works great here; my number is +1-650-557-2086). I have also brought a Vonage

Moving On!

We’re moving house over the next two weeks. We sold our Aptos house and moved out on Friday. We are going to a new home in Hamilton Avenue [close to University Avenue] in Palo Alto, but can only move in on 18 September. Meanwhile we are renting a beach house in Rio Del Mar. Life is quite good I think BUT … this server will be down a lot until 22 September when my new DSL activates. I run it from home and the transition will not be smooth. Sorry!

What a Beautiful Game – but I hate the aggregate result!

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Wednesday, April 23, 2003 Man Utd 4-3 Real Madrid PA Manchester United were taught a Champions League lesson by Real Madrid and the irrepressible Ronaldo, winning 4-3 on the night but going out 6-5 on aggregate.

But with his fellow striker injured, Ronaldo rose to the occasion in the manner of a true champion as he struck a
