Back

I’m back from my mini-vacation. Just sayin’.

I’ll be back to posting at least once a day Monday through Friday, with optional posts on the weekends, I promise, at least until I stop doing that.

  • I’m continuing to use twitter (as “lunarobverse”, and, at least for the past day, Nambu, while still in beta, is performing really well and not being crash-y and giving me the ability to collect my follows into smaller groups. Kinda awesome.
  • I love Penelope Trunk and the fact that she says stuff that people think but rarely say in person, like how she thinks of dating as a way to improve her online brand and how that’s not different from what some women have done throughout history.
  • Political activists The Yes Men are saving the world again.
  • President Obama addresses the grave dangers of Wild Things, and Where They Are:
