We pass bits down from generation to generation. Sometimes it’s intentional, other times it’s quite accidental. In either case, it’s unavoidable – especially in the case of parenthood. Meet, Balthazar. He’s my eldest son and new to the real social interactions of the web. It’s a scary place out here, but I’m cautiously optimistic that… Continue reading Legacies
My wife and I like to think strategically about our future. Planning and foresight can save you a lot of grief and work in earnest. In the event that we should become multi-millionaires in the future, we want to make sure we know what we’re going to do with the money. The following is an… Continue reading As a Multi-Millionaire…
This week’s “The Pain” comic tells the story – probably from my area of the world – of Obama’s election. When I first perused it, I had assumed Mr. Kreider was not a fan of Obama. For this one, you need to read the Artist’s statement which raises the comic wit. …watching Obama’s luminous acceptance… Continue reading The Horrors of the Obama Administration
I have heard this one before. It was once said that bumblebees were scientifically incapable of flight. Today’s future-potential piece of mythical folklore is that the pterodactyl was also incapable of flight. Katsufumi Sato has collected and assessed the data only to reveal nature’s secret to flight: “…the largest animal capable of soaring across the… Continue reading Ill-Conceived Science
Dippin’ Dots are so 2000…E Ink is the future. Esquire magazine is making a bold move to use E Ink on the cover of their October magazine. What’s more, they snagged the rights to the deal from E Ink Corporation for a year. That gives them megacreds towards the potential future of magazine design. Remember… Continue reading Esquire, Magazine of the Future!
It has been submitted! It took way to long to get the presentation worked out, and I’m less than excited about the results. I tried to use some Flashy-goodness, but couldn’t get the file size down to the allowable limit. I am however, pretty jazzed about the final result. Sure, I could have kept editing… Continue reading No Bones About It
We’ve returned home from Philadelphia, though home is not exactly as we left it. There is a gray storm cloud hovering above us; perhaps still building in power and ferocity, or lingering remnants of a thunderhead. I’m not talking about the weather, though the hurricane located near Corpus Christi does invoke a palpable invocation of the mood.
Man has been on a quest throughout time to find the riddle of the root of all evil. Ole-Magnus Saxegard, a student of the Sydney-based University of Technology, explores this riddle in his latest frame-by-frame Flash animation (A History of Evil). It is a brilliant vision. If he’s looking for further inspiration to this age-old… Continue reading The Home School Phenomenon
This morning a guy with a fluorescent-green shirt came to the door a little after 8:00am. “It’s a little too early to be sporting that color,” I thought. Apparently, after 7 or 8 years now, it was time for the local officials to take notice of a small stand of Mimosa trees I had reared… Continue reading The Lumberjacks were Here
Of particular importance is my interest in a legacy. I am passionate about telling my story. Above all else, I trust that my musings will pass along a message that I cannot reach into my own ancestry for. That message will be a referential perspective to those in need of familial comfort. If we are to know the answer to life, the universe, and everything, we are to know our history.
