  • 9+ years in the biz, 10 messing around

  • Custom Specialities in Wordpress theming & plugins, Twitter & jQuery
  • Subversion, server-log analysis, and blocking hack-attempts (of late).

Smartphones, Tablets & Dumbphones: Which are glanceable?

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m into tech, and that perhaps too much (by most reasonable standards). But what gets me about tech isn’t the tech itself (believe it or not!). I’m actually into 2 very distinct aspects of tech: it’s knowledge-utility, and the consequence for daily routine (ultimately very psychologically focused!). I’ve  recently posted …

BJ Fogg’s Behavior Grid

There’s always some good stuff out there, and when “behavior change” is the vocabulary of the decade, models like the one from this guy from Stanford help to get the brain moving in the right direction. ~~~~~`~~~~~ Green behavior Do NEW behavior, one that is unfamiliar Blue behavior Do FAMILIAR behavior Purple behavior INCREASE behavior …

The Value of Higher Ed (Review, NYMag)

There’s a lovely article of dissent/critique by New York Magazine. It seems there is a growing devaluing university studies from both inside & outside of the ranks. I myself might be so inclined too, but there’s a sneaky spin to all this. Yes, I might like to call most university studies remediation for what public …

Freedom of choice, or freedom to move on

The Economist has a blog post (2 years old!) regarding freedom & user-convenience. It’s nice to see the author string together various contexts suffering under the same problem (from e-med records to the everyman’s Mac/Win choice). But this is a common issue at hand, and actually, one which theologians are often faced with. I recently …

Forms of Life: The Computer as a Person

There’s an older sociological study that has gotten some press-time a week or two ago. In the 60′s, when computers were first getting going, it was found that some people tend to value & reciprocate with technology with human qualities. 3 Notes: 1) While there is a long-standing history within humanity to anthropomorphize, this seems …

The Internet may provide opportunity for undisciplined thought & life (with sociological influences and reactions) but there are solutions for the patient & data-visualization futurists/opportunists.

Exploratory Experience

As I’m looking through UX (user-experience) slides explaining things, one mentioned “we’re programmed for exploration” and had a screen of an RPG. I’m not into games. They frustrate me (and take too long). I’m not into novels, they take too long too. The issue, however is not that I’m simply impatient, rather I’m not ‘wired’ …
