So I’m checking my blog on the hotel wifi, like ya do, and I notice something a little off with the style. There’s a dark colored bar at the top of the page that shouldn’t be there. That’s funny. Maybe…
Stephanie and I have been looking forward to taking a linocut class with Eric Rewitzer for a long time, but we didn’t have the time (or space of mind) to do so until February. The class took place at 3…
I’m not sure what’s more remarkable: that there was a time in the not-so-distant past when I didn’t bring a camera with me everywhere, or that in the present, everyone else has a camera with them at all times. Before…
One Saturday morning a few weekends ago, Stephanie suggested that we take a break from unpacking and walk up to Twin Peaks. Here’s a few photos from our impromptu urban hike. San Francisco from Twin Peaks
A little gem of wisdom hidden in Anil’s article about a fight in which I have no dog:
Because when I would spend my time flinging zingers at Matt Mullenweg about the merits of Movable Type vs. WordPress, you know who was winning? Mark Fucking Zuckerberg.

Boing Boing’s Rob Beschizza on How to blog (from a talk he gave at Washington & Jefferson College about “careers in blogging”):
If ever blogging was for merely blathering on about oneself, it isn’t any more. Social networking created a better venue for personal sharing. But what some people don’t realize is that successful bloggers never did this to begin with. You’re only as interesting as the things you do, find or say. Even if you’re a fantastically gifted writer, if you make your work solely about you, you won’t just bore your readers: you’ll eventually get bored of yourself and give up.
Ouch. Not even sure how to respond to this. Linking to it here for future reference. #
What are “seagull trolls”?
It’s funny, someone did that to me yesterday, but it happens so infrequently that it doesn’t really bother me. I delete the comment and get on with my life. #
