Rude QA for private moon shot, Project Artemis
I always like reading rude questions and answers. I think I'd ask why each answer is on a separate web page! But this looks like an interesting project.

The Exact Jeans You Want
I haven't ordered from here myself, but I think these jeans, though spendy, are a good idea! Getting the exact style, fabric and fit that you want is worth extra money. Don't you want some faux snakeskin Jeans? (Note: the site is slow and has a zillion small graphics.)

Kman bones still worth fighting over
The Seattle Weekly has a page with all their previous coverage of the Kennewick Man bones dispute. Indians want them buried; scientists want them studied.

Journal-ism according to MISC
Clark Humphrey takes a look at online journals (and distinguishes them accurately from weblogs). But Open Pages is more like about 1000 members, these days!

Nicola Griffith is Orycon 21 GOH
Nicola moved to Seattle a few years ago. I enjoyed her novel Slow River a lot! I haven't caught her latest book yet, but it's out in paperback now.

Going to B-man? be sure and complain
via Pigdog. According to Mr. Bad, the best thing to do before going to Burning man is to complain to the organizers about all the parts that are bugging you. (I guess it would be courteous to give some positive feedback, also.)

New Job
I'm starting a new job today, Education Director at Stockcharts.com. So that might slow down the linkage for a few days. hey, if you read this, let me know!

Digital clubbing at Seattle's Showbox
given the state of streaming media, I wonder if this will be fun at all. But the Showbox in Seattle is joining the Digital Club network. ('Ware nasty huge popup!)

Urban legends -- Know the score!
This is a great site to refer folks to, when they insist on sending bogus rumors and urban folklore to mailing lists. It's great reading for fun, also! New recently:

  • Animals/bear eats baby
  • Misc/boring salmon
  • Animals/daddy long legs poisonous
  • Animals/lawyer microwaved pet
  • Medical/licked the other again
  • Death/peeing on third rail
  • Sex/spanish fly more
  • Misc/urine in pools
What a great list!

Digital Gutenberg
Lots of good reading on the Intangible.org site, but oo that tiny, fixed-size font size! Maybe you'd be better off printing the pdf version. But this article on the real benefits of mass publishing is a good one.

MISC: back to the futurism
Clark Humphrey's MISC has made a good transition from weekly three-dot column to daily stuff. Today's piece contrasts Portland hippishness vs the Seattle version. I disagree about the reason for the new style of Capitol Hill's "Pages," though. I think that as a new business, they don't have the funds to stock the shelves so fully!

Robots a-plenty
In honor of the Iron Giant, more robots, images, and robot links here than you can shake a positronic circuit at.

Tomalak's Realm
Lawrence Lee's "Tomalak's Realm" is a good tech news read for me. I check it several times a day. I especially like the way he digs to find older stories on a current topic, to give some context or make an ironic point.

Pamie at the amusement park
I like Pamie! In this episode, she's talking about the subtle social dynamics of waiting in line, with your sweetie.

Yesterland
Werner updates every month or so; I check the "what's new" page. This is loving documentation of early Disneyland days. Did you know, there were "other lands" in Orange County?

JerkCity meets the Blair Witch
those mysterious comic strip guys meet the mysterious movie. (I like Mondays because I get to read several new JerkCity strips!)

Diarist awards nominees are posted
If you aren't a regular reader of online journals, the nominated journals and entries here would make a grand way to sample a diverse selection of writing.

Whiteboard News
Joeha collects the best "strange/funny" news items and posts them, so you no longer need the fram (friend-spam) that floats around the office now. Or maybe you want to originate some?

MRML
I love keeping up on the latest tech stuff! I think this will be a great advance in Web authoring.

Seattle folks buying nice stuff
I love lifestyle porn! I saw this on the newstand, but I rarely pick up Seattle Weekly these days, even though it's free. (via iBoy)
