xtine and I have been quietly working on two new books, one on Digital Imaging and Collage and the other on Web Design.  You can see the works in progress on the Digital Foundations wiki


Second Front has just released its Second DVD: Avvie Road. We will be having a formal DVD launch party at our performance night at Eyebeam on October 9th, 2009. This is a chance for everyone to see us perform live along with Alan Sondheim and Lily & Honglei and of course to get a collection of our performance art videos.




Another feature that could be helpful is a display of relative size. ArtsConnectEd has a solid implementation (for example – scroll down to the details, and click the Scale tab). The Met provides dimensions (in a number of formats, grumble) but does not present any cues as to the relative size of the work.


Still trying out the whole web video thing.


Another test video entry from last week at the Brooklyn Caribbean Festival.

Alcor is a company which cryonically freezes people for a future afterlife and charges $150,000 to  freeze your whole body, but they offer a discounted $80,000 for just the head. My advice: go for the full monty.


Here’s why. Listen to this Radiolab podcast from our friends at WNYC. Mind-blowing stuff. The body is essential in the determination of emotional self. Feelings of fear, love, anger and everything else that makes us human stems from the direct observation its own physiological responses.


I am trying out video blogging and today’s video diary is about working on my Flat Pack jewelry line.


Today is the 140th birthday of Hiram Percy Maxim founder to the ARRL, Amateur Radio Relay League. I’ve been doing research on him for my Makezine post and I am surprised to find that technology today isn’t that different from when he was around. Hacks were called kinks. And people were using the radio instead of the computer. Almost everyone knew Morse code from the war. They would used ham radio to keep in touch and had little phrases to talk on ham radio. Instead of LOL they would say HIHI. Instead of TTYL they would say 73. I was even surprised to learn at Hamvention that the YL’s (ham ladies) used to have their own electronic jewelry booth. Not too different from what I do today. It is interesting that things don’t really change too much.


This is a mixed up collection of funny advertising pictures from my 5 weeks in Portland. Some funny, some tragic, some WTR R U Serious?!!

The lamppost with all the flyers for music shows says “Dont Advertise” but… do they mean, don’t advertise anything other than indy rock. Or does no one care?
