Circle of Useful Knowledge

My wife came into an odd book by this title, self-published in 1888 and filled with weird recipes for cocktails mixed in 10-gallon quantities, household hints, rules of thumb, home remedies, etc. It uses units of measure and ingredients that are obscure or obsolete today, has some laughably bad medicine, and is a view into a different world in general. I'm blogging a couple of entries from it every day.

Movin' Right Along - a blog about full time RV living

Who Are You Supposed To Be?

I have been blogging about the creation of my latest play, a Doctor Who-themed romantic comedy called "Who Are You Supposed to Be?" that is set to debut at the Edinburgh Fringe in August. There are five posts about the project on my blog so far, tagged appropriately. We are also running a fundraiser and there is an IRL event for the show.

Stories About Monkeys

I am spending the next 11 months in the rainforest in Cote d'Ivoire studying monkey behavior! I'll be telling (hopefully) exciting stories of monkey chasing, fecal sample collecting, snake spotting, and the challenges of integrating myself into a village on the Liberian-Ivorian border at The Great Blue Erin.

Waeguk.in

Waeguk-in is (a romanization of) the Korean expression that means 'foreigner,' and that's what I am. The site is Wonderchicken Industries™ newest entry into Korea blogging for fun and no profit whatsoever. I've dismantled my old neglected Korea-focused site and built a shiny new one devoted more to fun and interesting Korea-related stuff and less to turgid essays. If you're interested in Korea, come and have a look, or just follow @iamthewaegukin for updates. [more inside]

Similar Songs

Ten years ago in college, I had a website with clips of similar-sounding pop songs. It was a lot of fun and I received many interesting submissions (more than I ever managed to get online). Surprisingly, since then there have been very few other sites like this, so I'm trying again. Of course, there are a few rules...

Offbeat Eats, v3

You last read about Offbeat Eats, my food blog, back in early 2011. On that site, I track the interesting places I've eaten, mostly so that other travelers can find some of the more obscure places I've enjoyed. Since then, the blog has continued to grow (it's over doubled in size), and with it more than a few growing pains on the backend as various things didn't scale well. Since I've been stuck at home waiting for a kidney stone issue to resolve, this was finally a time to resolve it. Mostly based upon feedback from my earlier post, I've migrated it to the newest Google Maps API (faster), implemented map autozooming (cooler), and implemented marker clustering to reduce clutter on most of the maps (which were starting to look like the dartboard at an old bar with too many pins on them). I'm looking for more feedback and ideas.

Links To The Damn Paper

Hello and welcome to Links to the Damn Paper, an open discussion community showcasing the best in freely-available biology research. If you’ve ever tried to have a discussion about science on the Web and been stymied and frustrated by inaccessible articles, misrepresentation of research in science journalism, or a community that seems uninterested in digging into the actual research behind a topic, then welcome: you are our people. If you’ve ever wished for a place to talk about the Science of Life where you could be sure that the actual articles were available, where compelling research was presented in a way that allowed it to speak for itself, and where you could discuss science with actual scientists and with other people who are passionate about science for its own sake, then you have found your haven.

Socialism In One Blog

A group blog written by some of the comrades from /r/Communism. I thought having a forum for extended writings by people at /r/Communism was a nice idea and after proposing it and having quite a few people interested, we set up a little home on the net. There is no single line pushed by the blog, each user has their own perspective. The project is an attempt at exposition and dialog. Current writings include: Pacifism as Privilege, Tibetan Feudalism, Marxism and Oppression, Violence in Media, the Zeitgeist Movement, and more.

The Knitting Needle and the Damage Done

I've launched a knitting blog, on which I intend to critique and ridicule patterns from knitting magazines (both print and online) and post items about interesting and varied knitting-related stuff. I set up The Knitting Needle and the Damage Done one week ago, and so far I've posted about a couple of vintage patterns and some knitted science projects, linked to patterns for knitting your own Remembrance Day poppy and a turkey hat for your baby, told stories about knitting on the TTC, and commented on some of the knitting patterns from the Vogue Knitting Holiday 2012 Issue and the Creative Knitting Winter 2012/13 issue. My aim is for the blog is that it should have enough general interest and entertainment value that a non-knitter could read it without pain.;-)

Studies in Semicolons: On the habits, tools and technologies of doing idea work better

I've started a blog about the world of technology available for academics, researchers and other people who deal with ideas for a living. While there's plenty out there on technology for writers and programmers, I wanted to bring a special focus toward brainstorming, document management and notetaking. I'm gradually expanding into non-technology stuff as the blog grows and progresses. [more inside]

Conversus

My interviewing website, called Conversus, is a place where people can tell any story they want. My experience interviewing includes as a radio, television, print reporter and as well as a freelance videographer and writer, and through my work as a public affairs officer. Because I have talked to hundreds of people during my career (maybe thousands), I have a good sense for what motivates people to share, namely asking a simple question and then, listening. I have had many five minute conversations with strangers who's stories could've been made into indie film sagas, only to have them disappear never to be seen again. I think these interactions are the stuff that fuel us and give us empathy for each other. [more inside]

Tilting at Werewolves

Looking at Teen Paranormal Romance books, shows, and movies, and particularly at how they present ideas of gender performance and relationship models. (Here's the inaugural post, where I lay out what the plan basically is. Highlights so far include this particularly cogent defense of (at least some aspects of) Twilight, and this epic takedown of Hush, Hush.) And today, we've started a new, 144-week-long project: watching and discussing each and every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. MeFi bonus: named via AskMe (thanks again, argonauta)!

Randophonic - a radio show's blog

Randophonic is a blog for a music-based radio show that airs weekly (most weeks anyway) c/o CiTR.FM.101.9, Vancouver, Canada (University of British Columbia). Podcast links are easily accessible via the site. Since November-2011, Randophonic's main focus has been the All Vinyl Countdown + Apocalypse (the 1,111 Greatest Records You Probably Haven't Heard), as selected by Philip Random over ten years ago (and then he disappeared). Lately, the countdown just passed its midway point. Also, as I've just passed my 4th Anniversary as a numbered MeFite, the timing feels right to finally share this project. [more inside]

Bitstreet Framework

I've been developing software for around 8 years. I've discovered the basic problems people need solved over and over again to have a successful presence online. I've managed to come up with a project that has almost all of them solved from the beginning. This allows you to continue doing what you do best without having to find ways to "send email newsletters" or "create a calendar of events"; these basic needs will already be figured out for you. The best part is you can have some powerful software to focus on the success of your organization, not the troubleshooting of technical problems.

Special Needs Parenting Blog

I've been keeping a blog that details my experiences as a parent of a child with multiple disabilities. In 2012, I started interspersing a series of articles that are a set of simple projects that any parent can do to help their child with Down syndrome (or any child with gross or fine motor issues). Finally, in a bout of craziness, I have signed up to run the Falmouth Road Race in order to raise money for the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress, an organization that has been immeasurably helpful to our family and so many others.

Saving Sasha

I adopted a dog from a dog rescue and tried to teach her to love me or at least come when she's called. And then, because it's 2012, I started a blog about it. And then, because sometimes life is really shitty, I discovered that my brand new doggie is horribly sick.

Video for Lunch: a blog of #QualityVideos, all 5 mins+

Great videos longer than 5 minutes are shared everyday on the blog Video For Lunch. It's so named because the found videos are nourishing and good to watch while you eat lunch. Things like a short doc on climbing photography, a New York Times op-ed video on P.T.S.D, and Tom Waits putting a fish in his pants. No gratuitous time-lapses, music videos, or the usual viral video fare. A la #longreads, sharing is encouraged with the hashtag #qualityvideos. Shorter #VideoSnacks are served on the side and @VideoForLunch.

The Long Bleep, a podcast and blog about taboo language.

The Long Bleep will be a public forum for discussion of four-letter words, "dirty" words, swearing, cursing, obscenities, and more. The first step is a questionnaire. Its results will be used to create podcasts and blog posts structured around things that really happened when taboo language was used: confrontations, first encounters, eureka moments, learning situations. Those stories will lead us down cultural and historical paths as we tease out the complicated relationship English-speakers worldwide have with "dirty" words. More information on the blog.
