I’ve been rewatching Star Wars with my 4 year old son the last few weeks. We started with A New Hope > Empire > Jedi then worked our way back to Phantom Menace and now Attack of the Clones (with Revenge of the Sith then Clone Wars after that). I have to admit... after the … Continue reading Maybe George Lucas Was Right
We really do forget that Easter isn't just a day but actually a season in the liturgical Christian calendar. It would be like assigning all of Lent to Ash Wednesday. There's a reason Easter is the longest season in the church calendar... practice resurrection.
I don't remember when or why but about 2 years ago we threw this sticky blue ball onto the ceiling of our dining room. It's been there ever since fighting a constant battle with gravity and friction thanks to the miracle of modern polymers. It's also become part of our family and dinner routine. It's … Continue reading Blue Ball in the Sky
It's part silly, part therapeutic, and part philosophical but I like to tear down my bags and carry items every weekend and make sure I have what we need and I know where it is. It also helps to process what we don't need and take those items out of the tins, packs, and bags … Continue reading Saturday is Prepping Restock Day
And most important of all, citizens must hold companies and governments accountable for the commitments they make, and demand that both respect the web as a global community with citizens at its heart. If we don’t elect politicians who defend a free and open web, if we don’t do our part to foster constructive healthy … Continue reading WWW Turns 30
That’s what Peach is for. It is a place to be real with people who’ve chosen to be real with you. It’s friendly, it’s therapeutic, it’s cathartic. It’s necessary. When it’s not around, those of us who use it go a little bit mad. We’ve come to lean on confessing out loud. And there are … Continue reading Next phase of the web
How can we transition to a gender-balanced world, if these biases remain part of our vernacular? ELaN Languages, an independent translation organisation in Belgium, wants to tackle our unconscious bias by updating their online translation tool with a new feature: ‘the unbias button’. The plug-in offers unbiased translations of biased words. Making us aware of our … Continue reading Breaking Gender Biased Language
This thing is pretty AND amazing.
Today starts the liturgical season of Lent. Around 12:03AM this morning (or last night, depending on your biological sense of time), I committed the ultimate mind crime of deleting my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. Well, I began the process of deleting them since each of these advertising companies give you a 30-day "grace" period … Continue reading Goodbye, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Hello World.
If you've met me IRL, you've probably noticed I have a notebook either in my shirt pocket or in my hand (or a stack of index cards tucked away somewhere). All of them make awkward appearances when I hear a good quote, someone has a question I need to look up, if I was trying … Continue reading Putting the Days to Bed (My Paper Notebooks)
We have a spare unlocked iPhone 6 Plus (cracked on lower right but otherwise in good shape) with an Otterbox Commuter case... let me know if you or someone you know would put to use (just needs a SIM card if you want cell service). I can ship in the US for free as well.
Via Photogrammar Foxes and I go way back... from Lollards to Wendell Berry.
Nice work by Twitter to have live video of local press conferences and local news up top of the feed (as we wait out the slow arrival of Hurricane Florence here in Columbia). I've always used Twitter for live news and updates in text form, so it's interesting to see them move more into the … Continue reading Live News on Twitter
