Social Media Monster

I love me some infographics! No, seriously, infographics are fun. Now, I’m not a guy who has to track and record and quantify every aspect of his life.  I know people like that, but I’m not really one of them.  On the other hand, I am one of those guys who likes to look at […]

NASA Models

I love design from the 60’s. I’m also, oddly enough, a fan of architectural models, too. There’s something weirdly science-fictional about the conjunction of those two things, too, that I really enjoy.  The kind of retro-future that they were trying to manufacture in the 60’s is just so, well, so quaint.  It’s not that they’re […]

Think More Better

Yes, that grammatical travesty was written on purpose. And, it got your attention, so it worked! One of the things I’ve been obsessed with over the years is thinking.  Specifically, thinking more creatively.  For a long time, I thought that we all had a built-in limit to our creativity.  What we were born with was […]

Nerdy Day Trips

Time to get out into the server room with the big, blue ceiling! Spring is springing in my part of the world.  Flowers are in bloom and the weather is quite mellow and pleasant.  And, of course, I spend most of my week trapped in a server room. But, I don’t want to take a […]

Over Wrought

How much time do you suppose Henry Darger spent world-building before he started writing? I read a post on someone else’s blog recently titled Forget Self-Improvement. It was interesting, in that it suggested that the reason we don’t do things, or follow through on some things, is because we want the end results without doing […]

Social Media Papers

Soon, you’ll need a passport to enter Facebook. No, not really.  Well, probably not, but I’m sure Zuckerberg wouldn’t mind issuing passports and currency! Regardless, in this case, I’m talking about an art project with a social consciousness that I read about on Gizmodo; Facebook ID Cards. Those of you who know me, know how […]

Kaufman’s Posographe

Appreciate your DSLR’s built-in light meter! Here’s something to make you appreciate just how far we’ve come in a very short time; Kaufman’s Posographe. What is it?  It’s a mechanical “computer” for calculating exposure, based on variables like camera settings, light and setting.  That’s right, in the old days, when people used plates and emulsion […]

Sometimes, the Geek Gets the Girl

No, I’m not talking about me. I’m talking about pop culture.  Or, at least, Hollywood.  I go on, sometimes at length, about how the geek never seems to get the girl.  Mostly, because I happen to be that geek who never seems to get the girl!  But, more and more, the geeks are getting the […]
