Stolen Computer

I had my computer stolen from my house last week. It was only a Mac, so I get to buy a real computer now. But it is strange that someone has my passwords saved on their new computer now.
Also the whole thing was an epic fail. Whoever, just walked past several thousand USD in computer and video equipment to steal my laptop with a broken screen. They even unplugged a brand new Lego Lacie to steal it, and didn't even take the AC cable.
Anyhow. I'm using the computers at my school, so I may have updates soon.

Monster Hoodies

It seems everyone is finally selling their cloths online now. Monster Hoodies is a project by my friend Jen Dunlap (of course) and other people who I don't know.

Community Computing

Community is about a type of feeling. It is not about a collection.

I prefer this kindof community computing to the standard definition. We sit around in a friend's living room and show each other what we have found recently. Everyone is sitting and drinking, suggesting search keywords and five or six pages are loading at once.

User Friendly versus Usability

When I looked up "user friendly" on Wikipedia, I was forwarded to the "usability" entry.

They sound like two different things..

Here are two Wikipedia entries that seem to go together in a strange way.

Second Life Exhibition

So I went to view art work today on Second Life for the first time. I don't use SL too much because I have slow computer right now.. But this show seemed to be advertised alot, so I thought that I would visit it and maybe take some pictures.
I found the show here at Lowstandart. Here is the link from Select Parks. The artist's name is Tommy Støckel, though I don't know his second life name. The show is titled Boom Pearls.

I'm not so convinced by the work in general. It seems that if you are going to work on a computer and you can start from zero, so to speak, maybe making things look like found objects isn't the best approach. Anyhow, the pictures are below.
