iTunes U and podcasts

A true hidden gem in iTunes is the iTunes U selection. There is a really great content in there. I’ve mostly been listening to Duke’s Distinguished Speaker Series and Knowledge@Wharton, but there are a few other great courses here and there too.

On the podcast side I have begun listening to Jason Calacanis’ This Week in Start-Ups, restarted Leo Laport’s This Week in Tech, and added Ad Age Audio Reports, the Appletellcast (of course), Old Jews Telling Jokes, and Loo & Placido’s Electronic Popstar Killers.

Check some of these out and let me know what you are listening too.

Move on, tweet me

Wow, it’s been close to a year without any updates. Sorry for that, things have just been crazy. I have moved back to NY, bought an apartment, got engaged :), rotated to the global Dove team at Unilever and am working on a new innovation platform for 2010, been streamlining Dabbledoo Media given the economic downturn, and have recently launched dabbledoo/design letting me be a bit more creative.

Most of my online posting is now either at (@gadgetgell) or on my personal Twitter via @AdamB, though I’ll try to check in here and there.

Goodbye and farewell

auf wiedersehen

Auf wiedersehen to the Axe team, the friends I’ve made, people I’ve met, and to Germany! It’s be fun.

Ok So How About A New Theme?

The black was just a bit too dark for the summer. Hope you enjoy the new theme on the site. Maybe the next theme will be an original “The Berger Project” theme.

Writers block

I’ve had tons of thoughts running through my mind as I am slowly preparing to leave Hamburg after six months and come back home, but for some reason I am not sure how to express them without rambling.

Maybe an afternoon in the park and some good music can solve the blockage…

Enjoy your Sunday.

Do you eat any of these?

BlueberriesAccording to a recent NY Times article here are the top 11 foods that you should be eating, but probably aren’t (and suggestions on how to eat them):

  1. Beets – Fresh, raw and grated to make a salad. Heating decreases the antioxidant power.
  2. Cabbage – Asian-style slaw or as a crunchy topping on burgers and sandwiches.
  3. Swiss Chard – Chop and saute in olive oil.
  4. Cinnamon – Sprinkle on coffee, apple sauce or oatmeal.
  5. Pomegranate Juice – Just drink it.
  6. Dried Plums – aka prunes
  7. Pumpkin Seeds – Roasted as a snack, or sprinkled on salad.
  8. Sardines – Choose sardines packed in olive or sardine oil. Eat plain, mixed with salad, on toast, or mashed with dijon mustard and onions as a spread.
  9. Turmeric – Mix with scrambled eggs or in any vegetable dish.
  10. Frozen Blueberries (or fresh, in season) – to long to list.
  11. Canned Pumpkin – Mix with a little butter, cinnamon and nutmeg.

How many do you eat?

Have you seen … ?

I am always that person who has never seen … movie. Well I have just added two ‘classics’ to my list. Via iTune’s $.99 movie rental of the week I have watched both The Usual Suspects and The Untouchables. I have to say that I enjoyed both immensely, especially for $.99 each.

Next up is Robocop…
