"No Airport Card Installed"

A little while ago my Air decided to forget that it has a wifi card installed. A quick trip to my local Genius Bar solved the problem, by moving the following files to my Desktop, so that the OS could re-create fresh, happy ones; they're in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/
  • NetworkInterfaces.plist
  • preferences.plist
  • com.apple.airport.preferences.plist
Just recording this here in case any of y'all encounter something like this.

    Rdio

    I mentioned this on Twitter, but apparently I forgot to mention it here. Oops!

    Back in January I joined Rdio -- they'd heard through the grapevine that I was looking for new work post-EMI, and I'd heard through the grapevine that they needed PM help. I've been loving it ever since, as it's exactly what I wanted to be doing:
    • work on an ambitious project with a small, brilliant, passionate team
    • be part of an early-stage, funded startup
    • use my natural skills, but also be learning new things
    • have lots of responsibility, but with plenty of room for growth (and reward)
    Rdio is a new music service from some of the folks who made Skype happen. For just $10/month, which is like, the price of an album, you get unlimited access to listen to music on your computer, iPhone/Pad/Pod-touch, BlackBerry or (soon) Android device. And it's got social-ness built in, so discovering new music is as simple as clicking a play button. The site in its current incarnation barely scratches the surface of what we have planned, so this is just the beginning.

    It's an honor to be working with such an awesome team, and to also be exposed to a new-to-me group of innovators from the Skype world and beyond.

    Some early press:
