I’ve been keeping quiet on a lot of things lately; when I have a very small thought I just twitter it, and when I have a lot to say I find it harder and harder to find the right words.
Kathy Sierra has recently posted a call for suggestions on how to move forward without drawing personal attacks, and I’ve broken my online silence to add my two cents. I wish I could tell you something profound about online interaction or gender relations, but all I can say is that I want to continue hearing her viewpoint and I think she could easily make a business of it. And also I really hate it when the bad guys win.
Tickets for Snakes On A Plane are now available on Fandango!
While I’m at it, take a look at this clever prank. I’m not above jumping on a neighbor’s connection when necessary, but you get what you pay for. Or sometimes maybe a little more.
Portrait by Buzz. This may be my most favorite photo of me ever. He’s got some other good pics of SXSW, check out his stream.
See also most randomest meetup ever, taken a day after Andrew and I met and about 30 seconds after we realized we’ve known each on MetaFilter for years. Bizarrely, the next photo is of a friend of his who happens to be from my hometown (only the second time I’ve met someone from there since I left).
A small part of me has just died.
This is what happens when you let Mothersbaugh score too many Hollywood movies I guess.
For those of you not reading the Flickr blog, or who missed the CNET article, or have deleted a certain popular group blog from their RSS reader due to an annoying overabundance of self-promotional posting…there is now a Flickr photobooth at Shine in SOMA. And yes, of course you can subscribe to the feed. The address: 1337 Mission. 5VV337!
Not quite as cool as the Photoboof from Laughing Squid’s 10th Anniversary, but then that’s hard to top.
TMN linked this morning to a project I’m surprised I hadn’t seen yet, given that I was maybe a half mile away at the time. The organizers of the PARK(ing) project took advantage of one of the last bright sunny days of fall to let a lucky few dig their bare toes in the grass one last time before winter set in. They have an agenda of course, but what kind of San Francisco artist’s collective would they be without an agenda? Preferably one that denounces others and gives them a chance to point some fingers. Ooooh, yeah.
Their ingenious use of space immediately reminded me of the Space Hijacker Office. We all know what a chunk of cash rent can be, especially those desirable addresses close to influential decision makers. This may be the best solution yet for young startups on a budget. They also win points for having the good sense to throw a party at the end (and another party, and then finish the whole thing off with a pub crawl for good measure). So
Bubble Web 2.0 of them.
