Apparently Gawker’s trying to drum up some synthetic outrage over YouTube’s decision to add the “1911-ify” function to videos today, but with so much real cause for outrage around, the rest of the world’s not buying it (thank GOD for a sense of perspective, eh?). The feature (available for Yankistan only, alas) turns whatever you’re […]

When I was in the hospital recently (and for those of you coming to this soap opera late, I spent five months in and out of the hospital, a tale chronicled elsewhere) I missed blogging, sure; any writer misses writing.

It’s called ThirdEye, it’s made out of a real human skull, and it takes pictures like this: Why not find your own human skull that’s not currently being used (try a Fox News aficionado) and make your own. Just the thing for taking pix at a Halloween bash.

I found this via a link from the highly plugged-in Kris Krug’s blog, where I was stealing some photographs of Jer Crowle at W2. Looks really interesting, but this is the LAST day to apply! 22.5 hours left!!! An example of something they might consider is anything tangible that results from a project like Mobile […]
