Shakespearean Prose

The Bard’s influence is deep and wide. When people ask me why I revere writing and the written word as much as I do, I always go into long explanations about communications and the human condition and, much like John Keating in Dead Poets Society said, about using language for purposes of connecting for procreation. […]

Improved Gutenberg

Well, there goes my dastardly scheme to sell “improved” free books from Project Gutenberg! Okay, I wasn’t seriously thinking of that, but I do know that there are people doing it. Seriously, if you go look at the cheap ebooks on Amazon or Barnes and Noble, you’ll see quite a few that are really just […]

Free Public Domain Photography Books

You know how I like free. I started out the year talking big about stepping up my photography, but, honestly, between a new job, my wife’s business, and trying to refinance our house to get a better mortgage rate before they go up, I just haven’t done that. I still intend to, eventually. Honest. In […]

Old School Newsletters

Not so old school that they’re printed, but, still, pretty old school. I’ve always been an email sort of guy. And, I pretty much hate the modern forums. I hate having to go to a web interface and deal with all their junk and advertising. Also, as regular readers may have noticed from my blog, […]

Lunch Read

More self-education at lunch. This is a little less work oriented than last week and certainly less technical, but it’s still the same idea. It’s an email newsletter, which seem to be gaining a bit in popularity again.  In this case, it’s a curated email, sent weekly, filled with content that the site owners claim […]

Haphead: A SciFi Webseries

As my long-time readers will know, I love science fiction and I love free. Haphead is both. Haphead is a science fiction webseries available on YouTube and is about a dark future where interactive gaming has taken on a level of interactivity and realism beyond anything we could have hoped for.  The “haphead” referred to […]

FanFic

No, I’m not writing it, but I’m not knocking it, either! I know a lot of people do look down on fan fiction, mostly because it traditionally hasn’t been the best quality.  In fact, back in the old days, when I first was trying my hand at writing, it was very much denigrated and no […]

Things To Read

I’m a little suspicious of lists put out by booksellers of books I ought to read. I’m especially suspicious when it’s a list of 100 “books to read in a lifetime” being suggested by Amazon.  But, when Matt Mullenweg, founder of Automattic and one of two founding developers of WordPress, I have to admit, I […]

Free Kierkegaard

No, this isn’t a plea for a political prisoner. Rather, I’m offering a free book, which you can download from a link at the end of this post, by Søren Kierkegaard, considered by many to be one of the earliest existential writers. He was also a Christian, and a radical Christian thinker, at that. I […]

Free eBooks for Photographers

Well, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love free and I love photography! This week, I’ve got both for you! Actually, I can’t believe I haven’t shared this collection of Twenty-Three Free Photography eBooks before!  I know LightStalking has shared them before, but, well, apparently I haven’t passed that all on […]
