I love gum: a Haiku I LOVE gum all day, Bad habit I can’t escape, Model I’ll never be. I just bought three packets of beautifully designed gum. Admittedly, this was an impulse buy. I just had to get my hands on that beautifully-designed packaging. Opening the box is a delight, flip the lid and ...

Not Enough People Love Typography

Not Enough People Love Typography
ILoveTypography.com: This site makes me fall in love with typography with every visit. In my daily toil using Microsoft Turd Word, Excel or just working in code-view all day, I forget about the power of typographic design.

iPhone for the Ubuntu Crowd

iPhone for the Ubuntu Crowd
This Open Moko Neo 1973 Linux handset is probably what the iPhone SHOULD be: a gadget to freely tweak and customize. the Open Moko software is in very early ‘pre-alpha’. It’s about the size of a Treo 700, with a significantly longer screen ( not wider) VGA display supports 640 x 480 (better than the ...

Sin City or King City?

Sin City or King City?
Okay, so I’m being very “dramatical, as John Leguiziamo would say… Actually, I think I’m done drywalling for a long time. The king has been working on getting our office set up on our second floor.

Me Gusta La Red 2.0

Me Gusta La Red 2.0
Me encanta en lenguaje de la red en espanol. Las tablas no se usan para maquetear. Se usan las hojas de estilo en cascada. Oye, pero eso si que suena elegantisimo. Estoy inspirada hoy, y, les presento 3 logos… jugando ando. Mira, flote esos logos hacia la izquierda esta vez.

Wishlist: Mom, Dad, This Feed is For You
My parents are far away, and I miss them lots. They miss me more, since I am their only child. Wouldn’t it be awesome if, instead of the gazillion phone calls and emails, they could just subscribe to my subcutaneous DNa-RSS chip-thingamabob (pardon the technical jargon) and receive the feed of my life’s events, daily, ...
