Project prioritization

Gotta get some decisions made about which projects get attention. Otherwise, everything is just continuously spinny.


Asimov on anti-intellectualism
Sun, 18 Mar 2012 19:00:00 -0700

"Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' " -- Isaac Asimov

Mon, 23 Jan 2012 17:50:00 -0700

News: Too-cool internationalista discovers something besides furry boot covers at Burning Man.
Views: Apparently the urge to rewrite this same effing piece is irresistible to a certain percentage of people who finally get around to attending the damn festival.

Reflections on the external & internal

I saw the AA drill at second hand. Those people helped my mom pull out of the hole she'd dug, and she never did fall off the wagon after the day she finally called and they visited.


Update: New layout
Sat, 11 Dec 2010 17:11:00 -0700

I've been thinking about fooling with the site layout for quite a while, and I finally made time for it. I like it so far. It's too plain -- needs some more detail/elaboration/whatever -- but it works as expected (thanks to a tiny javascript and some css -- very small footprint).


Nocturnal storytelling: Greying brothers
Tue, 27 Apr 2010 19:40:00 -0700

I was living in a mountain town & working as the local librarian there. The dream has nothing to do with that job, but it was part of the situation. I was returning to work from somewhere, at some point during the middle of the day. As I approached a big open intersection -- maybe a cul de sac of some kind -- I saw a group of local brothers.

I sent this message to my U.S. Senators, as well as the neglibible person who succeeded Pat Schroeder to represent my district in the House.


Nocturnal Storytelling: On an art car into the unknown . . .
Sat, 20 Feb 2010 18:41:00 -0700

So I woke up from this LONG elaborate Burning Man dream. It was late spring, going into summer, IOW time to get the annual plan going and commence building stuff. Ivy and I were camping out in this vast backyard of some house . . .


Honey, you can have as many as you want.

I am suddenly and powerfully reminded of an incident when Yahoo no. 1 was 6 or 7 years old.


Tell Me a Story 6

The dive downward into the murk started out as a bolt for freedom, but elation rapidly faded as the water quality degraded and light dimmed with every inch of travel. Soap was the dominant theme of the stagnant soup . . .




ArtTartare Projects

Without projects, it's just a long, dusty road to the horizon. Projects are ways to engage and reward attention along the way. Beats the living fuck out of just trudging.


Stuff to Share

Lots of interesting stuff washes up, and some of it I'll document here.
