Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

Archival posts from the now-defunct I thought were worth keeping.

Um, ok, here is something to look at:

Because I felt like it, I am going to post a link to somebody’s profile on this neat site called Bolt. Her name is Amy, and I guess she is doing a foreign exchange thing in Japan right now, but she is American. the point is, this site lets you share WAY more stuff than video, and in a fun rich-media sort of way… almost. This girl is experimenting with videoblogging, journal-writing, photo-sharing, and even (or especially) music, and it is music she wrote and performed herself! Good job bolt, and good job Amy!


Retro Party

Thu, 03/16/2006 - 08:25 -- rprice

April 7th, 2006
9:30 PM, or thereabouts

A party to celebrate days when communication involved stamps and wires buried in the ground. A time when music came in the form of grooves in a piece of wax.

Attendees are engouraged to wear something retro, classic, and otherwise old-school.

More details to come…

Ryan’s Black Bean Dip:
I make this dip every year for the Superbowl and many other social gatherings. The fresh basil and the green salsa are what make this dip so great. Don’t forget these ingredients at the store. Also, try this as a burrito filling, as a side dish, or even an omlette topping. Don’t think just any chips will suffice. Store brands don’t hold a candle to the excellence of Manny’s, Tostito’s and other thin crispy varieties. “Nacho” chips are not what I had in mind when I invented this dip. Grab some cerveza and enjoy!


Dark Crystal Sequel!! Genndy Tartakovsky!

Wed, 02/01/2006 - 09:06 -- rprice

Ever heard of Samurai Jack? Dexter’s Lab? Clone Wars (animated)? Well now you will have The Power of the Dark Crystal!! Amazing!

Not only is someone bringing back a GOOD franchise (not remaking, but continuing), they are getting talented people to work on it! Brian Froud is back. Genndy is the man, and the Orphanage will do animation.

Listenable Fabric

I read about Sonic Fabric in a feed from WIRED magazine today - WOW!

They take old vinyl from audiocassettes and weave it into fabric, and apparently with a lightly modified walkman, you can drag the playhead across it and get an actual sound! There is this dress than the drummer from PHISH wore and performed with somehow. I would love to get a video of that someday.
