Fische und Schiffe

February 29th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The winning animation in the 2007 Adobe Design Achievement Awards titled “Fische und Schiffe” by Axel Broetje is worth watching. Beautifully subtle with great music. Just wish they offered a high-res version that could be crisp fullscreen. “”Fische und Schiffe” is an animated silhouette film for children. I wrote the story myself. It is about […]

New iPod case

February 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments

With the purchase of my new iPod, I needed a new case. I’m pretty picky about cases, logos, and styling. I wanted something that just act like a protective envelope for my iPod, which could easily be removed in order to plug the iPod into my car dock. It had to be tough enough to […]

A glass on my desk

February 25th, 2008 · Comments Off on A glass on my desk

I have always thought of this as my first insight in a GTD approach to work; It’s worth going back and reading “Time Management: The Pickle Jar Theory” from 2002, “Each of us has many large priorities in our life, represented by the large rocks. We also have things which we enjoy doing, such as […]

The Grapes of Wrath

February 25th, 2008 · Comments Off on The Grapes of Wrath

We watched the 1940’s edition of “The Grapes of Wrath” over weekend. What a wonderful movie, heart-felt with simple prose delivered honestly and with the conviction you expect from such a great source. “We could go on with this talk of the players, but it would become repetitious, for there are too many of them, […]

Forbidden shifting and the Canadian DMCA

February 23rd, 2008 · 4 Comments

I’m a huge fan of “shifting”, which can be hard to explain to some people who aren’t as tech savy as some of us. This little video from some Canadian University students does a great job!! All the more reason to support movements that seek proper legislation in updating our copyright laws — that isn’t […]

A quote from Gandhi and sad video

February 22nd, 2008 · Comments Off on A quote from Gandhi and sad video

“You can judge the moral stature of a nation by the way it treats its animals.” – Mahatma Gandhi Stumbled upon this today – to be honest I could only watch a little bit of it. “An HSUS undercover investigation prompts the USDA to recall 143 million pounds of beef from a California slaughter plant; […]

Turns out almost all Canadian ISP’s are now shaping torrent traffic to some degree or another. Thankfully people are working on a solution. “The list of ISP’s that limit BitTorrent traffic, […]

The Tao of Deadlines by Andy Rutledge

February 22nd, 2008 · Comments Off on The Tao of Deadlines by Andy Rutledge

“Design View by Andy Rutledge” is well worth a read through. He’s got some great long pieces about a number of topics in the Design/UI/Web field. One recent post that struck a chord was “The Tao of Deadlines“; Project Management No project runs itself. Responsible project management is a vital component in allowing everyone to […]

‘Where the Wild Things’ clip

February 21st, 2008 · 1 Comment

Update: “That was a very early test with the sole purpose of just getting some footage to Ben our vfx (visual effects) supervisor to see if our vfx plan for the faces would work. The clip doesn’t look or feel anything like the movie, the Wild Thing suit is a very early cringy prototype, and […]
