- Kate Winslet is no longer a Heavenly Creature, nor a Titanic starlet, but a disappointed middle-aged detective in the rust belt with a broken family and a cold case she can't really cope with. She starts dating a writer passing through, played by Guy Pearce (Shotgun Ed in L.A. Confidential). A local girl with another … Continue reading "What I'm Not Watching: Mare of Easttown"Read More »
- Someone has finally uploaded a (possibly legal?) copy of to archive: Computer Lib/Dream Machines, by Ted Nelson Read it from either end, there's two coherent books written back-on-back like an Ace Double, happily you don't have to turn your monitor upside down. The first personal computer book (before the Altair came out!), though the PCC … Continue reading "Computer Lib/Dream Machines"Read More »
- I'd read a couple years of Invincible when it came out, and some of Robert Kirkman's other comics (The Walking Dead, Tech Jacket, etc); he was throwing things at the wall until one stuck. And now Kirkman's adapted this into an animated series (it would be insane to do live-action), and like TWD taken it … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Invincible"Read More »
- Dartmouth's BASIC at Fifty site from 2014: May 1st, 1964 In particular this video Why Johnny Can't Code, by David Brin: Terribly overwrought, almost completely ignored available solutions (even in the dark ages of 2006), but there's a point down there somewhere. Certainly Brin's solution of just buying an old computer is a popular one … Continue reading "BASIC at 57"Read More »
- A bit of Robert Heinlein's All You Zombies, a bit of Doctor Who, a lot of every buddy caper flick. Not nearly as clever as it thinks it is. Or I've just read too many competent time travel stories to tolerate most of what ends up on film. The first half does its best to … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Tenet"Read More »
- Short Youtube/Adult Swim pieces are now on HoboMax, so I've binged the entire run in the last week. In Season 1, a teen girl Tulip wants to go to game dev camp; briefly we see the screen and game, a PyGame starter project, on the blandest fake-Windows XP screen possible, but that's probably how the … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Infinity Train"Read More »
- Yuru Camp △ S2: Following up on S1, S2 goes more into Shimarin's backstory, Nadeshiko does some solo camping, the original club try a cold winter camp and endanger themselves, and then there's a very long arc of a road trip, not entirely "camping". The first parts held my interest and were the kind of … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Yuru Camp △ S2, Kuma3 Bear"Read More »
- Smoke 'em if you got 'em. Timmy Apple dressing exactly like me (his watch strap is different) is not cool. He's a fucking MBA from Duke & IBM, should only be in a suit or a track suit. Moneymoneycard. Purple iPhone. Find My needs a noun. I suggest Find My Shit. Geotracking every object you … Continue reading "4/20 Apple Event"Read More »

- I've got a new project in the works, VR Micro A shared infosystem based on spatial reasoning, a world of many interconnected maps, with documents and services physically represented as objects. Users have avatars and can see and interact with each other. The short version is, this is a file share, as a memory palace … Continue reading "VR Micro Online"Read More »
