A few Malcolmisms I don't want to forget: Instead of "What's for dinner?", Malcolm asks, "What kind of dinner, Mama?" Instead of "Go faster!", Malcolms says, "Mama! Go too fast!" When he would like to offer up his tummy for... Continue »

The cover art for the "Run for Cover" issue of V as in Victor speaks to me. It came out the week after cancelling the marathon, when Manhattan still sat in the dark. It was when we were forced to... Continue »

I'm sorry, have we met? Since I last wrote anything, we bought a house and moved 3/4 of the way across the country and I started a new, tenure-track job. Gee whiz! And as of this weekend, we have actually unpacked every box, down to the last picture frame, which is something we didn't manage to do either of the last two times we moved. I miss Santa Barbara, our old place, our friends there, and our routines. I also miss the avocados and my lime tree. But... the new house is large and lovely and belongs to us (!)... Continue »

Draw Something! is over, not because the service shut down, but because everyone stopped playing it. It's time to clear this png off my desktop. I saved it not only because it's hilarious, but also because I thought it captured... Continue »

The New Yorker: This mania is what Marvel followers have hungered for, and it would be fruitless to deny their delight. As Loki says to a crowd of earthlings, ‘It is the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation.’... Continue »

I’ve been very fortunate in my career. In 1999 I got to intern at Macromedia on a product that introduced a lot of early designers to the web. At the height of the first bubble I had the opportunity to... Continue »

My interest in perfume has been chronicled extensively on this blog (there's even a tag for it, which should make finding my perfume-related posts a little easier--UPDATE: alas, those posts were on my defunct Vox blog). About a year ago,... Continue »

I didn't do a ton of photography this year (excuses: parenting, Gothamist.) I did manage to get up 15 posts here at Bluejake. I also added 591 images to my streetart project (here's a slideshow.) But my real photography work wasn't out on the street- it was a secret project to brutally edit my Bluejake archives down to the best work. I didn't delete any original images- but I took 1300 of the 1600 posts I've put up since 2003 offline. What remains are my favorite shots- the ones I think come closest to capturing what I've been trying to say since I picked up a camera in 2002. I'll probably continue to edit in the future- some of the pictures on this post will probably be gone a year from now. Continue »

I enjoyed the Badgeville CEO's takedown of Foursquare on Techcrunch this morning. Here is a fascinating quote: Badgeville Co-founder and CEO Kris Duggan pulls no punches when it comes to one of the most visible and early adopters of gamification,... Continue »

Commercial iBooks textbooks are a marketing head fake. They're the equivalent of carbon fibre buggy whips. iTunes U is the game changer. Put iBooks Author and iTunes U into the hands of great teachers, put iPads in their students hands,... Continue »

I love my people who work in, around, alongside, next-to, by-the-way-side, and with technology, and I don't give a damn what their gender is. I do know that there still aren't a whole lot of females coding but I'm putting... Continue »
