Playing in the Fields, Ripping through the Streets


I just spent part of my morning playing on Twitter with my friends from Massachusetts, Egypt, and France. Yeah, I still get jazzed at that, a Kentucky boy living in the hills and hollars near Mammoth Cave National Park. It got me thinking about how ‘play’ has infiltrated my working world. It is part of … Continue reading Playing in the Fields, Ripping through the Streets

Following the Bouncing MultiMedia Ball: Playing in the Popcorn Fields


I am embedding a PopcornMaker Mix here so that others may share in it and play with it. PopcornMaker allows for such collaborative play. Join in. Not sure how this will work but that is the nature of the infinite game of play and life.  You can watch the progress here throughout the course of … Continue reading Following the Bouncing MultiMedia Ball: Playing in the Popcorn Fields

Minimum/Maximum Curation Theater


Who am I kidding? I’ll never get around to the ones I want to read in the video embedded above. The plenty of the Internet is appalling. Consider the Diigo outline of pages/posts/sites that I have vacuumed up this week that all DEMAND to be properly attended to, to get the maximum curation they deserve. … Continue reading Minimum/Maximum Curation Theater

Petty Joys: A Series


There is always a story. Yes.  The gallery below is part of a story that began when peanut butter was really cheap and young boys and girls ate a lot of it.  We got peanut butter in gallon tubs.

Snow Day, Jazz Play, Loki’s Way


A song by Kevin: A response by me: It was a snow day. Unfettered time granted by simple circumstance. Mad Loki pops up and says, “What is not forbidden is allowed. Ask neither permission or forgiveness.” It is a jazz story, part call and response and part improv riff. The story that Kevin’s music and … Continue reading Snow Day, Jazz Play, Loki’s Way

Don’t Abandon the World | Attention Must Be Paid


Some of the best long form reading I have done of late has been on Medium including the Hans de Zwart one on Ai WeiWei  (and, apparently, on the entire universe of privacy).  I ran across another from my RSS feed this morning by Rob Walker, How To Pay Attention: 20 Ways To Win The War Against … Continue reading Don’t Abandon the World | Attention Must Be Paid

A Philosophy of Curiosity: the Magic 8-Ball


When my son was eight I gave him a Magic Eight Ball for Christmas. I thought it was a cool intergenerational gift, the kind that I never got when I was a kid, but really wanted because all my buddies had them. I spent the next few years keeping him from smashing the damned thing. He so very … Continue reading A Philosophy of Curiosity: the Magic 8-Ball

Celebrating Laura Gibbs & t/ #DailyConnect with Weavly


I pulled a quote from this delicious post by Laura Gibbs about her best tech friend forever, Inoreader. I got the quote from the end of the post and the more I dwelled on it with Weavly as my “close reading” tool, the deeper it got. I share this with gratitude for Laura’s work now … Continue reading Celebrating Laura Gibbs & t/ #DailyConnect with Weavly
