New beginnings…

May 18, 2009

Look who’s back! (As if she ever left.) Jeneane dot net!!

I checked out the bio and resume and then peeked at the portfolio. Holy moley, what a writer!!

(Blame my excessive use of bangs as the typesetters used to call them—although they resemble neither a combed forward hairstyle nor a British sausage so what’s that about anyway?—blame the exclamation points on my real excitement that Jeneane is again getting her freak on, blog-wise. Allied has had about a post a month recently, and I lost track of Jeneane.net entirely. Perhaps I need more RSS and less twitfeed.)

Wolfram Alpha

wolfram

it was the | was the best | the best of | best of times | of times it |
times it was | it was the | was the worst | the worst of | worst of times

Wolfram Alpha opened its doors today. What’s Wolfram Alpha?

Dead Horse

May 12, 2009

Braxton, the horse in the middle in the picture below, passed away this weekend. It’s not mandatory to be blown about in the tempestuous seas of irony and synchronicity. We have a choice. It’s not required that we comment on every coincidental circumstance that somehow adds a deeper meaning to the tapestry of our lives. [...]

@ monkeybicycle “…Tuvan throatsong rendition of “Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer,” arranged by Harry Partch.

The liner notes also feature Eco’s now-classic essay on the traditional holiday sweater [...]

YBLOG ZA Retired

May 10, 2009
