National Geographic In the best Big Picture posting for some time (linked from the AV Club), they have acquired access to the entries for National Geographic's annual photography contest (it's open until the 30th if you want to compete!). They've put together an incredible selection and you should really go and look at them all, but here are some of my favourites: … Read More

DanKam: Augmented Reality For Color Blindness (via Dan Kaminsky’s Blog)

DanKam:  Augmented Reality For Color Blindness [And, we're in Forbes!] [DanKam vs. A Really Epic Optical Illusion] [CNet] So, for the past year or so, I've had a secret side project. Technically, that shouldn't be surprising.  This is security.  Everybody's got a secret side project. Except my side project has had nothing to do with DNS, or the the web, or TCP/IP.  In fact, this project has nothing to do with security at all. Instead, I've been working on correcting color blindness.  Check it … Read More

12 Sips of Christmas (via From This Pint On)

12 Sips of Christmas As part of a cross-blog experiment led by my friend and fellow blogger Sandy, this post is being written in conjunction with several other (largely financial) blogs under the umbrella inspiration of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Beer lists, and specifically holiday lists, have been done before. But here's my (current) take. I'm stretching beyond beer for this one, but bear with me hopheads, I save the best for last. First sip: Let's start with so … Read More

Surely, a comedy genius. (via Sweensryche sez …)

Surely, a comedy genius. When I was 10, my parents took my brother and I on a vacation to Boston. It was the first big city I'd ever seen. But I only really remember one thing about that trip – seeing The Naked Gun in a cool underground theater. The perfect mix of brilliant one-liners, elegantly staged slapstick sequences and spot-on comic acting, the movie was the funniest thing I'd ever seen.

Organizing Our “Stuff” (via Just A Blog)

Organizing Our "Stuff" Here's another thing I remember someone saying: How can we better share our "stuff" that's lying around. I have 2 ideas: 1st – Use the blog. When you post your "stuff" via an e-mail, just TAG the e-mail with the word STUFF. How do you tag? Just add this to your e-mail post (see bracket text at very end of post for how it should look): Update: Look at the attached image for an example of how your e-mail should look. Now you can search the blog and … Read More
