Counterfeit Content

My short, sorry stint in SEO was the strangest job I've ever had. I was asked to create hundreds of imaginary webmasters and write little "About Me" biographies of their lives for fake blogs that only Google's webcrawlers were meant to read. They gave me the site name, I wrote the bio, and a coworker added manipulated photos. I did this for many months. I began to get bored... and then I began to get weird.

LED Array Prototype

This is a 10ft x10ft 3200 RGB pixel LED array that I have assembled in my living room. It's a prototype for a 10,000 pixel version I'm building for our Burning Man camp, Be There Now. I plan on using it as a sound reactive party light as well as an ego stroking Giant Selfie Machine. I am not a lighting designer or a professional LED nerd, I'm just a guy with a big living room and I'm not afraid to try stuff. Videos liquid effect scattered pixels free form a music driven test [more inside]

WTH? Athens

I got so tired of driving around my town wondering "What the hell is that?" that I suggested a column for my local alternative newspaper. Shockingly, they took me up on it. It's not just for people who live in Athens, though. If you notice things that other people don't even see,maybe you'll like it. My favorites are "The Millitant Next Door," "The Rules of the Mall," "Carwash Curry," "Grave Situation," and "Meat Sales and Butt-Smears." It's a bunch of love letters to my great little town. Hope you enjoy.

DANGER RADIOACTIVE

This is the YouTube playlist to turn to if you want to say WTF over and over again, or inflict WTF upon other people. Concentrated weirdness, painstakingly curated to move fast and be completely inexplicable. Best experienced on Shuffle, and in small doses. Many clips salvaged from folks' old MeFi posts and comments! But really, heed the warning in the title, this can alter your brain chemistry if not handled with care.

Museum of Broken Relationships

I recently had the chance to visit the museum while on a tour of UNESCO World Heritage sites in Croatia. This isn't one of them, but I had to visit it anyway. Looking objectively at things that carried heavy emotional weight for a pair of strangers is just weird, and I wanted to see what sort of depressing and funny stuff the museum had to offer. Just in case Croatia isn't next on your list of travel destinations, I thought I'd share a few of the museum's highlights right here.

Objects, signs, and dictionaries

If it were still 1997, I would be out a billion dollars in domain names. But seeing as it isn't 1997, I've created three sites in three weeks. Feeding Objects is a site where people...feed objects. It's kind of in the name. Hey, I Found Your Sign is a site that encourages people to remove illegally placed business signs (we buy houses, earn cash from home) from their community. And, finally, My Dictionaric (because dictionaric.com was taken), the call-in podcast where I read the dictionary aloud until someone calls in to chat. I know, I know. I'm really raising the bar for quality internet content.
