Thanks to LinkedIn shoveling out my email contact list and presenting them to me as if they were other people, a quest for customer information instead led to the find of an old email account generated for a googlepages project seed planted back in 2006.
The other day I was at a webcomics meetup thing and was sketching out a framework for a future thing and the nice proper artist next to me said

"WHERE DID YOU COME FROM?!? WHAT KIND OF IDEA IS THIS?!?”

and—implicit interrobangs aside—it felt like maybe the nicest compliment. Whether she meant it that way or not.  It seems like a pleasant assumption to make.  I certainly would mean it complimentarily if saying it to old ME.  We’d probably be pals.

  • Three reproductions of the Oval Office. As used by: Lyndon B. Johnson (at 7/8 scale), Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. From their respective presidential libraries.

    (The FDR library has only the desk from the Oval Office and in the case of JFK, a mediocre reproduction of part of the office. Lame.)




    Some statements about climate change from the Ford Museum, Dearborn, Michigan.




    Bureaucracy in action: Nixon’s resignation letter and a White House memo informing folks of a change in the office. Ford Presidential Library, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

  • from the paper “You Have 134 Unread Mail! Do You Want To Reed Them Now?” by Jacob Palme.

From the paper: “In many large computer message systems or networks, one of the major problems already is that people get too many messages, which they do not have time to read”. The paper was written in 1984.
