  • For Today

    San Diego Web Design Meetup today! My folks got in safe last night, yay! I got rid of many boxes last night — gave them to a friend and his wife who are moving! So fun! Tuesday night, Racquetball class was good. It put me low – I was achey and creaky and fell directly…


  • Downtown San Diego

    I often walk around, semi-randomly downtown. I traipse and amble and mosey. Sometimes I take pictures. Here’s one. You can see the building I work in in this one. I like working downtown. It looks like I may be working there a bit more permanently. I’m pleased with that, and I’m generally happy in my…

  • Radio, Radio.

    So yeah, I was on the radio again – for a full hour on Tom Fudge’s show These Days on local NPR affiliate KPBS. Also on the hot seat talking about web design and web sites was Pam Dixon. It all went quite well. But I must now do some real work. More later.

  • Lessons About San Diego Transit

    When it rains, more people seem to be on the bus. The buses I took to and from work today were packed. People who have to transfer rely on the timing of the buses, and as transit is different in the rain, people miss their connections, and get surly, and are on buses they did…

  • Geeking Out – More Changes To San Diego Bloggers

    I’ve made a bunch of changes to San Diego Bloggers — I’m putting together a php/mysql database to help me manage those links easier. It’s really cool, and really geeky. Also, the story from the other day got mentioned, along with SD Bloggers over at the very cool Blogroots.

    So I wrote the other day about missing the AIGA Experience Design meeting — well, I got a note back from one of the organizers: You’re not the only one who got lost in the traffic mess. Our next event big event is slated for March 27th so mark your calendar. We will probably be…

  • Super Bowl Prediction

    So back on Thursday I couldn’t get parking in the Gaslamp Quarter, right? Right. Madness. That was only Thursday. Yesterday after a great BBQ with friends old and new we went and saw the Largest Fireworks Show in San Diego History – from Point Loma. I didn’t take pictures, but it was tres impressive. But…

  • San Diego Bloggers – Changes July – August!

    In the past 2 months we’ve had a bunch more San Diego blogs (which is to say any blog in San Diego County – it could be Oceanside or Vista or El Cajon or Lakeside or Solana Beach) added to SDBloggers. It’s been really cool seeing this site evolve. Blogs come, they go. Lots of…

  • Blog Notes Dump

    I made some cursory notes for myself prior to the radio show. Here are the broad strokes of what I had on my mind. Of course, Only pieces of these were mentioned by me. Ah well, next time. Blogs: – age of web? – age of internet? – diary of a nobody – rss, amphetadesk…

  • Radio Followup — Email | Phone | Web

    Got a bunch of little notes during and after the radio show last night. Let’s attempt to address them, shall we? Matt Haughey thought it was pretty cool, a high compliment considering he’s the Philosopher King of Metafilter (and a nice guy too). And about the question of whether I am the real me in…

    Being referred to now. Scary. Mitch is talking with erudition. Nice. Lester now. He’s rad. Being asked about coming ‘out.’ Big questions. It’s evolving. Doing some updates in emacs. Dirk looking over my shoulder as I update. Cool. bak from the break. Lots of personal questions. (squirm). But it was cool. Dirk asks good questions….

  • Bagels & Lox

    Today started with an early morning breakfast with my friend Steve E. at local deli D.Z. Akins. We talked of course about my current state of affairs, the separation, work, the web, search engines, the list. D.Z.A. is a great deli. Now, it’s not a Cantor’s or Carnegie Deli, but for San Diego, it rocks….

  • 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…

  • Back

    I’m back in San Diego, but I’m still on east coast time. Upshot? If I were in EDT, I’d be up late. But it’s PDT, so I’m up early. As for the map in the previous entry, my flight actually went through Chicago, but you didn’t think the map in the previous entry was spot-on…


  • Tomorrow’s Trip

    I have more to say than will fit in this space. In lieu of words, here is a picture of my trip tomorrow from Washington, D.C. to San Diego.:

  • Things Are Tough; Stuff For Sale

    Despite being occupied with going to the post office, racquetball, to see the great new documentary Dog Town and Z-Boys, yesterday was an intensely difficult day. I’m going to try to radically reform my life and figure out how I can be a better formed human being. Part of that is doing some de-pack-ratting. So…
