The hearts of #quilttalk

While unpacking a box last weekend I came across a note listing the blocks in my heart quilt and the names and nicks of the women who made them. What a delight! Now I can personally thank the following people (I’m only listing nicks, not real names, for privacy’s sake): Demary for the hearts and […]

new directions

I’m thrilled to announce that this month I began working at The Grove Consultants International (a.k.a. the mothership of visual practice as I know it)! It was one of those moments when a number of different things seem to converge suddenly and then wham! You’re facing in a new direction, seeing new roads in front […]

Teachers, multimedia, and Skywalker Ranch

Big Rock Ranch’s really big rock I spent the morning at Big Rock Ranch, which was once and may still be part of Skywalker Ranch (yes THAT Skywalker Ranch) and which is where GLEF makes its home. Marin County teachers and multimedia enthusiasts gathered to talk about multimedia in Marin’s schools. The event was sponsored […]

fun Facebook meme

I just had to do this one (thanks for the tag, Jared!). You make an album cover using a random band name, album title, and photograph. How cool! If you want to do it too, make a new note in Facebook and paste the rules in, then create your cover and upload that. Please tag […]

Giddo

I am remembering my grandfather, Giddo Mike. My mother’s father. A wiry man, maybe an inch taller than I am, gentle (to me), gruff and indestructible. He loved gardening and golf. He raised a family in Belize, and then he and my grandmother moved to Orlando when the children were grown. When I was little […]

Twitter’s AWOL

It started last night. I hit “reload” to find out what everyone was doing just before I quit for the night. Nothing. Blank white page, little spinny Firefox icon. No updates. No avatars. Okay, I thought. I can cope with this. It’s late, and I can just check in the morning. No problem. Except I […]

Five Things, or Late to the Party But Hey There’s Still Beer

Like Howard Rheingold, I am hooked on Twitter. I don’t update a lot, but I like to see what folks are doing (I think of it as my virtual hallway of colleagues) and I like to be helpful and answer people’s questions. The links that come across there are also usually worth following, which is […]

twitter, on the other hand

… is quick and fun. Do you twitter?

that’s ten minutes I’ll never get back

Disclaimer: I’ve only spent about ten minutes using it so far, so this review is (a) uninformed and (b) very, very subjective. Let’s talk about LinkedIn. I’ve been meaning to get, er, linked in for a while now, but only actually did it this morning after reading Alan’s very appropriately titled post on the topic. […]

David at SFMOMA

David and I have been exploring art lately — I was casting about for weekend classes to sign him up for, and thought that art lessons would be good, and then realized (duh) I’m a certified teacher in the subject and why shell out bucks so someone else can have the fun? This is why […]
