linocut print: A Powerful Culture

I took snapshots and wrote up some process notes and overall motivations for one of my most recent linocut blockprint works, "A Powerful Culture", which is based around the 1993 Sandia Labs report on long-term nuclear storage messaging (warning, beefy PDF). [more inside]

Pedestria

A new photoblog of people passing on the street, with impressionist writeups. Intended as a five-days-a-week regular feature. (Sort of a people-watching spiritual companion laundryroom swapmeet.) Feedback, suggestions, criticism welcome.

laundryroom swapmeet

I live in an apartment building. We have a laundry room. The laundry room has a table. People put things on the table, and other people take those things away later.

It's a laundry room swapmeet. I take pictures of the things and write about them. Hilarity more-or-less ensues.

Refi: Metafilter in Review

I spend too much time on Metafilter (and especially Metatalk). I've had I-don't-know-how-many conversations about the site—what it is, what it was, what has[n't] changed, and such—and so I've decided to go spelunking. I'm going to go back and read Metafilter, and blog it. I'm planning to read every n-hundredth or so post, starting from the beginning, and I'll be trying to note various observable trends—users, memes, tone, conversational structure, etc. It won't be rigorously scientific, but hopefully it'll be reasonably objective. Specific analytical notions welcome. Likeminded co-author proposals welcome. Cash welcome.
