Perfect purpose

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Seems I’ve been too buried in my house project to get a weekly links post together this Sunday. Instead, I’ll just point to an article on my old hometown’s newspaper site: B.C. teens, twenty-somethings turn to Botox for forever 21 look. It made me wonder about a bunch of things. According to the article, more […]

Turmoil = No Links This Week

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

Well, the title says it all – I moved into a new place this past week, and it’s all still quite chaotic. Hope to settle into routine of sorts sometime soon… 😉

First Day of the Cross-Country Roadtrip

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

A slight account of my first day traveling by car from Portland Oregon to Boston Massachusetts. On Day One, the spouse and I passed through beautiful Oregon, traveling east on US 26 (south of Mount Hood) to Madras.

Close to quitting (or noticeably downsizing) Facebook

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

I knew there were good reasons to dislike Facebook’s new redesign known as Timeline – nor does it appear that I’m alone in thinking it’s a visual mess, too. Or that it’s a bunch of new work for digital hamsters. Lately, in my current vagabonding stage, I’ve been thinking hard about work. Working in someone […]

Imagine: Why Steve Jobs’s death made me think of John Lennon’s

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

“Just imagine what else he could have done, had he lived another ten, twenty years.” Imagine is of course the name of a famous John Lennon song. That’s who came to mind when Steve Jobs died. On December 8, 1980 (in the midst of young Apple’s “turbulent” years), John Lennon was gunned down in front […]

Update Friday.

Friday, August 21st, 2009

I’ve really been slacking off on the blog posts – lots of turmoil and indecision happening on the personal front at present. I’m also consumed by what my city council is plotting to pull over Victoria taxpayers, and have been working with our little group to raise awareness.  We have a website, JohnsonStreetBridge.ORG, which I’ve […]

Yay and not-so-yay

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

Unexpectedly, an Amazon shipment of books arrived today, in time for birthday stuff, including the very weighty New York 2000: Architecture and Urbanism from the Bicentennial to the Millennium, by Robert A.M. Stern, David Fishman, and Jacob Tilove. It’s a tremendous resource and will go some way toward making up for not travelling to NYC […]

Who do you know? On “expert” systems vs P2Ps…

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

I’ve had this weird suspicion creep up on me in the past few days. Ever since February 3rd, when I read the LA Times article, That song sounds familiar about Pandora, a six-year old internet radio website which I blogged about on Wednesday, I have been turning over in my head several related problems: of […]

“Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!”

Friday, February 10th, 2006

We average Canadians might bravely sing that “we stand on guard for thee,” O Canada, but it seems our (unarmed) border guards have contractual leave to flee for thee in case of approaching Americans: SURREY, B.C. (CP) — Officers at the busy Peace Arch and Pacific Highway Canada-U.S. border crossings south of Vancouver walked off […]
