Welcome to the web site of Joe Petrow. There won't be much information about myself here, because I think I'm pretty boring. Instead, I will use this as my place to talk about the things that interest me, and hopefully will interest you. My goal is to create a database-enabled site designed to stay fresh throughout the years without bending to the whims of changing technology. You can check out some of my other projects, my computers, my online resume, and other assorted stuff as I get around to putting it up. (my section on my adventures in Japan might even be updated someday!). Anyway, don't just take my word for it, look around and see for yourself.
October 16th, 2009:Wow...does anybody actually still read this site? If I ever find some time I would like to create version 4.0, something more keeping with the times of Web 2.0 type interactivity. The days of supporting Lynx and Netscape are long gone, but IE dominance can no longer be assumed either. This makes the creation of a design that's optimal and interesting to everyone extremely time-consuming. So I'm think something more along the lines of using the power of Google to create a web experience that's different every time you visit. Not stealing others content, but using content to create entirely new content. Something between spam and AI. I don't know what exactly that is yet. When I figure it out, I'll let ya know.

And, it seems that putting entries UP here without an indent or image breaks the format, so my review of the new Tamagotchi Movie: "The Happiest Story in the Universe" is now merged into this entry.
January 30, 2007:While I rarely use this site to plug other blogs, I recently found a fantastic site called EPCOT Central that does a remarkable job of pointing out all the bungling moves that Disney has made to make this once venerable institution irrelevant, while at the same time celebrating what an incredible treasure this park once was. I look forward to several hours of reviewing all of this site's content treasure in the near future.
On a related Disney note, one of things I love most about Japan is that such an innocent incident as using 140 grams of mozzarella cheese that was one day past its expiration date could be considered a tremendous scandal worthy of news. You go Tokyo Disney Resort...keep that cheese spanking fresh in the future!
