What’s Going On?

I've migrated over to Tumblr. I'll be integrating a whole lot more there.

Numbers Obsession

OK. Guilty. I've erred in this area before. This post was a wake up call to me and took me back to how I originally viewed all this 2.0 stuff. Love it.

If you don't follow Gary or even know who he is, then I strongly recommend you do. And I don't even drink wine! Or anything for that matter. :)

Illiteracy on the Rise in DC

When I first began posting on this topic, I never dreamed that it would turn into a series. Who'd have thunk? (1) (2)

Once again we have an almost unbelievable example of a Congressman actually supporting the idea of not reading the bills that they want to pass. This time the baton is passed to House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-MI).

“I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill.' What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”
So the answer is just vote to pass it quickly so you DON'T HAVE TO read it? C'mon Conyers. That's ridiculous.

iQ Font...so cool

Ah, yes. Once upon a time I was a designer. Still am in a very finite way, but oh how I miss those heady days of working on a broad range of subjects.

I haven't really been all that enthusiastic about micro cars. I DO like minis, but those Smart Cars just look like a suicide mission. I don't know if I would have been all that excited about Toyota's iQ either, but this project made me love it.
And yes, I did download the font. I don't know what conceivable use I would have for it, but it will remain snug and cozy on my harddrive awaiting that moment.

Sebelius Gets Booed.

People are mad. Real mad. And Sebelius can't figure out why everyone won't just roll over and say "Thank you sir may I have another."
