Status Upgrade: “Celebrity”

Monday, October 29th, 2007

An associate from work recently pointed out to me that the likelihood of the names, “Fox, Olaf, and Balthazar” from Gainesville being someone other than my family is a losing bet. A bit like solving the geometric theorem that three points make the line, I presume.
It turns out that a picture of my wife [...]

This image is one I took of the lovely Duct Tape Pirate ladies at Dragon*Con 2007 Masquerade contest. As I grabbed this image, I noticed even Flickr was getting in on the fun!

A Surreal Morning

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

Monday morning I began my day like many others. It was the first day of school for many, and it was the beginning of the work week for me. I also managed to get out the door in record time (related) that morning; the sun was just creeping up above the horizon as [...]

Innovating the Search Engine

Saturday, July 28th, 2007

Listen up, Google! I have had a vision and I know what the next step in search engine technology is. It came to me as a spark of sudden hope during a frustrating journey down search engine back roads.
You see, the folks at Read/Write Web are right. The Search is “game-over.” Google has won. But [...]

Microsoft Acquires SeaDragon: Photosynth Preview

Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Wow! I mean, really?!? Words cannot express this amazing (new-ish) technology. A picture is worth 1,000 words, and this technology brings together thousands of pictures in new and innovative ways. Perhaps we’re getting close to a proper expression now. I’m not going to attempt to rationalize or dissect this concept [...]

Frank Miller’s “300″ Departs from the Original, but it’s a Story no Stylizing can Diminish

Monday, March 12th, 2007

The word “patriotism” was defined around 480 B.C. when a small but mighty force met overwhelming numbers head-on in a battle with no odds of winning. I originally read the book “Gates of Fire” by Steven Pressfield some years ago and have been in love with the story ever since. I was unfamiliar [...]

Balthazar Takes on 4

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

Today is officially my son’s 4th birthday. We celebrated Sunday and we had a good turn out from friends and family. We got one of those blow-up fun houses for the kids, though plenty of parents took trepidatious young children in with them. 4 years seems to have gone by pretty quick. [...]

On the Polls: Occult Practices in Gainesville

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

The face of reason and sober judgment for Gainesville and Hall County is that of Wanda Kuehn. Hers is the path of light; to keep Hell’s demons at bay. Dabblers in Satanic worship can be known by their fortunetelling, long hair, and rock and roll music.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill [...]

Threadless Submission

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Threadless is a Web 2.0 application involving all the standard components of a social web system and a really attractive product offering to get things going. They sell T-shirts, but not just any T-shirts…your T-shirts! It works by users submitting T-shirt designs or slogans and other members rating those ideas. If you [...]

Meez

Saturday, December 2nd, 2006

I read about meez.com recently and thought I’d have to go try it out. Meez.com is a 3D avatar generator, geared primarily towards 18-25 year-old blog owners like the type you’d see on MySpace or similar. So what do you think? Is it my gaming self?

In related news, there’s now a site [...]
