Amorphia Apparel's Badass Women of Science
To celebrate Ada Lovelace day on Oct 15th, which celebrates women in science and technology, I've expanded my selection of science themed t-shirts featuring women and collected them all (new and old) on one handy page. Since I know many of them aren't household names I've added a brief overview of each woman's best known accomplishments when you mouse over each design. Hope you like 'em!

The Crapshoot Podcast, with cortex and churl
Do you enjoy amiable bullshitting? How convenient! Me and churl enjoy bullshitting amiably, and we're doing just that for about an hour every week on The Crapshoot, our brand new podcast. We'll be bringing on interesting local PDX people (and out-of-towners when we can snag them while they're in Portland) and talking about everything and nothing. Our first episode features local comedian and mefite Mark msalt Saltveit, with whom we chatter about palindromes and taoism and football and a bunch of other things.

The Disappearance of N
Last year, a friend of mine disappeared, and I found him in jail. I had a blizzard of thoughts about that experience; here are many of them. They didn't fit in a linear essay, so I wrote some code to present them in a tree.

New book - Customers Included
I have finished a book, Customers Included, which explores the question, "Why do companies so often fail to give customers what they want?" The book includes case studies ranging from Apple, Netflix, and Google to African water pumps and Brooklyn's Prospect Park.

Digital Covers for Over 400 Children's Books
I'm digitizing the covers of a significant portion of my children's book collection and posting them to my Flickr account. Among the items in that collection is a book shaped card game called Dr. Quack which is sort of like Mad Libs. I've parsed out the story and the accompanying cards into a twitter feed just for snicks and giggles. The rest of the books are typically either science books, textbooks, or early examples of cross media licensing based on comic strips, radio shows, TV shows, or movies.

DEFCON: The Documentary is Released
In February of 2012, I was in Helsinki traveling with Rachel Lovinger when I was contacted by long time goon Russ Rogers. His question was simple: since DEFCON was coming up on the 20th anniversary, and I had been both an attendee and director of several technology-based documentaries, would I be interested in doing a documentary on DEFCON and its 20th year? I said I needed to think about it, but I really didn't have to think that long. A year and a half later, I put the finishing touches on a two hour movie and an hour of bonus footage, having spent the previous 18 months planning, shooting, organizing, editing, and just generally living this movie day in and day out. While we weren't able to cover every last aspect of DEFCON (and who really could?) I think you'll find there's something for everyone in the movie. It was done out of love And respect for this incredible event, I hope it brings a whole new appreciation of the special event DEFCON has every year.

Prosthetic Instruments for Dance and Music Performance
We just finished a documentary about some prosthetic instruments we designed for a collaborative dance and music performance. The instruments were designed by myself and Joe Malloch, another researcher at McGill University, and went on tour in Quebec and Europe in the spring. The basic idea was to create physical devices which would attach to the dancers' bodies in order to create opportunities for exploring movement and . Sensors incorporated in the devices send information to a computer, and the information is then used in the generation of computer music. There's more description on the webpage, and the video describing the design process and showing the instruments in use is on youtube. There's also a one-minute teaser vid in case the full video is TL;DW.

Movin' Right Along - a blog about full time RV living
Mr. desjardins and I have left our apartment (and most of our belongings) behind and moved into an RV. I started a blog to chronicle how we (and the pets) are adjusting to our new lifestyle. The blog title is from the Muppet Movie song.

The Summer of '63
From the governor of Alabama facing down his own state's National Guard to the March on Washington and the "I Have A Dream" speech, the summer of 1963 was the moment that the black civil rights movement in America galvanized the nation. The Code Switch team at NPR — with the help of our awesome social media team and NPR's librarians — is tweeting events from throughout that summer, just as they unfolded then.

Design Play Seattle
A lot of conferences are overwhelming, so I'm putting together a gathering for 20 people. It will be next summer in Seattle. Creative folks of all kinds are welcome; we have a lot more than 20 people who have expressed interest but I'm looking for as much of a range as possible.
