  • Downtown Los Angeles from Griffith Park
    Excellent photo by Mack Reed over on Metroblogging.la: “Frigid dawn over Los Angeles”: Absolutely beautiful. About ten years ago I worked downtown on the night shift at California Hospital, just a few years after that I worked as a temp at ARCO working on web pages, where I first encountered any server-side programming in a…
  • Bar Camp LA 4 was Cool
    I had a great time at BarCamp LA. I missed Saturday but I went Sunday, I brought 60 pounds of ice, I brought 7-up, I brought grape soda, I saw and participated in presentations, I met people (few new, some old), I took photos, I twittered, other people took photos, I ate pizza, I went…
  • My name is Misc, How do you do?
    Uncov got some para-journalistic love from Wired. I have mentioned uncov before. I have thought a bit more about the salty language Ted uses, and I’ve decided it’s really interesting to my brain to have the subject be computer science and business and have the language come out of, oh, Quentin Tarantino. Id meets intellect….
  • Scene from Greyhound Bus Station, Los Angeles, Monday, 4:30am
    I tell the cabbie “Union Station.” It’s a solid 2 miles. Too far a walk for how tired I am, and not really convenient on local buses. “I hate Mayor Villarigosa” declares the cabbie at the Bus Station. “Because he made the FlyAway service, and nobody takes cabs to the airport anymore.” “Well, don’t you…
  • stew plays, joe mulls
    So the 50 minute Stew show yesterday was wonderful. Totally worth the train ride and Dash ride and lack of usable WiFi signals at California Plaza. I even got to take a few minutes to say hey to Stew. I am such a fan. I actually met him in September last year. I’ve posted some…
  • A Small L.A. Trip: Part 2: Musings/Blogosphere
    About A Small L.A. Trip: Part 2: Musings/Blogosphere I tried out the “Summarize” feature of MacOS, here it is: MacOS X Machine Generated Summary: The thing I come away with is that anyone can do this blogging stuff, which is what I believed before too. The impression I got was that several of the people…
  • Here’s A Long Los Angeles Recap
    Phew. I had a great time in Los Angeles yesterday. I left at quarter of 9, and traffic started immediately. Luckily though, I was not late for the Web405 brunch at Du-Par’s. Excellent company and a lovely traditional breakfast (eggs over easy and turkey links). Good to see old colleagues and meet new friends too….
  • Brunch y Libros de Los Angeles y OSX.2 (Jaguar)
    Today I’m headed to Los Angeles (pronounce the “g” with a hard “Guh” for that 1940’s effect) to have brunch at Du-Pars at Farmer’s Market. I’m going to try to hit my favorite L.A. bookstores after that: Opamp (technical books), Hennessey+Ingalls (art, design), Golden Apple (comics). I may try to hit Aron’s Records and the…
  • Alyson Hannigan (from Buffy The Vampire Slayer) sure is cute…
    Alyson Hannigan (from Buffy The Vampire Slayer) sure is cute. You know, when I was in Los Angeles, I once interviewed with the company that developed and maintained the Buffy site for Fox. I didn’t get the gig, ended up at Jamison/Gold instead. Everything worked out for the best professionally.
  • Third Best Comic Book Store Ever
    While I was visiting Washington D.C. last week, my sister and I wandered around Georgetown a bit. In so doing one of the places we went was a place my sister had never been — Big Planet Comics. Now, I’ve lived all over. And I’ve been to a lot of comic book stores. My compliment…
