The Shock of the New

A lot of changes crashing around inside the Blimp. Your captain is in no shape for flying this contraption.

To start off, a quote from Anne Lindbergh, wife of Charles, but very much her own aviator:

“Is there anything as horrible as starting on a trip? Once you’re off, that’s all right, but the last moments are earthquake and convulsion, and the feeling that you are a snail being pulled off your rock.”

Feel ya, Anne.

I will be moving to Little Italy this weekend. Wrote a blog on The Science of Naming for an art site to be announced soon. Won an good book from James Hutchings over on Fighter Writer (Thanks again, JC!). Working on a screenplay for the Philadelphia Screenplay Fest.

Biggest change: I’m collecting my writing projects into a new creative services agency for artists and technologists, Cre8tiveIT.

I’m looking for freelance copywriters and graphic artists to join me on bigger projects, BTW.

So, yeah. Rough week on the Blimp. Stow your tray tables, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Creative Commons — Kickstarter

These are a couple of quick links to a nova organum (in the sense of a new monster) I am trying to build via scoop.it — it will be a curated site on ancient history and modern physics.  WIP. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

But it is also a link to two of the most important developments on the web: creative commons and kickstarter.  Both, I feel, are democritizing influences in a media that is under a great deal of pressure to become more corporate and push tech.

That is all. I will develop this theme a bit more as we all float on.
