Just 8 years ago?!?! Joseph and Douglas at an outdoor concert

April 30th, 2012 Comments off

Was this really just 8 years ago? Time flies when you are having a life, I guess. — Douglas

Jazz on a Sunday Afternoon

Here is the photo from a local paper of Joseph and I at the Lazz Concert I mentioned in my last post. 

For whatever reason, the photographer of The Acorn, a small, regional paper for the Thousand Oaks/Simi Valley area, finds Joseph quite photogenic. This is the second time we have appeared in the paper. By the way, I am not asleep in the picture, but concentrating on the sketch I was drawing. (SMILE)

Book: Gutenberg the Geek by Jeff Jarvis

April 30th, 2012 Comments off

I first saw this as part of Google+ What’s Hot email links Download your copy before offer expires.The free offer has expired, but it was an quick and interesting read. It is quite amazing how the past can predict the future sometimes.

Kindle books are readable on nearly every computer platform using the free Kindle Reader software. You can also now read directly in your web browser.

From Amazon.com…

Who was the original world-changing techno-entrepreneurial innovator? Not Google’s Larry and Sergey. Not Steve Jobs. No, to find the man who made the mold, you’ve got to go back to fifteenth-century Germany to find Johannes Gutenberg. Jarvis portrays the famed inventor as creator of more than just the printing press and the market for Bibles. “Gutenberg,” he argues, “should… be seen as the patron saint of Silicon Valley, for he used technology to create an industry.” Setting Gutenberg’s successes against the real pitfalls he endured, notably his early struggle to amass sufficient capital, Jarvis portrays a bad-boy innovator with a deft, if sometimes heavy hand. He bravely wears his assumptions– for example, the neutrality of technology– on his sleeve, and his lesson for techno-dreamers is straightforward. Read your history, Jarvis insists. “Your goal, geeks, is to be more like Gutenberg.” –Jason Kirk

Amazing bookshelf in office dome

April 21st, 2012 Comments off

I came across this post from inthralld and this amazing home office library that uses a dome to house the bookshelves.

I am sure some of use dream of a home library and office, but seeing something like this takes the dream to an entirely different level. Wow!

Sure, it is a bit inconvenient to have to use a ladder to reach your books, but what a show on a daily basis.
