The problem doesn’t lie with just governments, corporations or humans or any other single entity. It’s a complete and systemic failure of humanity. For all of our wonderful inventions and advances, the net impact on this planet and our place in the universe has undoubtedly been negative. We’ve taken, taken and taken and given so little back.

You may have noticed this site’s look changed drastically overnight. The site was due for a new look and the last few days’ GPL and Thesis discussions pushed me to make a change ASAP. At the same time, Justin Tadlock released Outline, a new child theme for Hybrid that is quite pleasant on the eyes […]

Anyone who has played a videogame with driving in it will appreciate this video. In it a scientifical test is run where two drivers attempt to drive a car with a third person camera mounted on the car. All the windows are blacked out so the drivers can only use the third person view.

The Boston organizers have put together a great schedule and I’m pumped to meet some fellow WordPress enthusiasts and talk shop.

If you’re a computer hardware geek, you’re going to love this mod. In a nutshell, the guy needed to build a Mac computer for work purposes, disliked Macs, so he built himself a Mac Pro Hackintosh…housed in an Xbox case.

Check out the trailer for Collapse, a documentary that pinpoints how we’re on a precarious precipice and it’s up to us whether we fall or stand. There’s a few things I love about this video:
- Amazing disintegrating fonts.

- Michael Ruppert – he’s like a film noir superhero journalist.
- “It’s not that Bernie Madoff was a pyramid scheme, the whole economy is a pyramid scheme” [a great quote]
