The Collision of Braininess and Manual Dexterity

This is so cool: It's a New York Times article on NYC Resistor, referred to variously as "Kingdom of the Geeks," a "Frathouse for Geeks," a "hacker collective," and a "creative community for nerds."

Plus, that's a picture of Devon! Hotness.

More Homemade Holiday Papers

Viola! Here are the remaining papers I made this year, using the method I described in my December 6th post.

Aren't they lovely? Also fun to make. :)

New Year. New Look.

What do you think? I thought colorful posts would do better with a nice blank background. (See Inside the White Cube, by Brian O'Doherty.)

Homemade Holiday Wrapping Paper

It took longer than I'd planned, but a jam session of about 5 hours resulted in a plethora of pleasing papers! Finally getting around to posting them. Here are two, I'll post more later. After coffee. Maybe.

Happy 2009, people.

What I've Been Reading

"It was unwise to read old books; the fury they ignited wasn't old; it was new. If she couldn't get the pompous fart himself, she wanted to search out the descendants of H. Hardless and stab the life out of them. But the child shouldn't be blamed for a father's crime, she tried to reason with herself, then. But should the child therefore also enjoy the father's illicit gain?"
