- Finally finished A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again
and absolutely loved it. I’m less and less that guy who says he loves
David Foster Wallace but has only read snippets. Though I really want to
find out what the full color spiderman hat
he repeatedly refers to is.
- I’ve been slowly reading this Håkon Wium Lie’s awesome thesis about style sheets,
which is really interesting in terms of history; previous innovation
just being buried and forgotten, and the reasons for decisions
- Feist vs. Rural is a cool
read (for a Wikipedia article about a lawsuit about copyright law), and relates
to the Aaron Schwartz
suit as well as public.resource.org, one of
my favorite non-profits (albeit with a terrible site design).
- Mary Rose Cooke’s Isla is a really
cool example of a langauge parser and interpreter written in Clojure. Lisp
is the one language that still totally puzzles me, so I’ve been taking
time to read and ogle at the mysteries. That, and the whole concept
of the language is really cool.
This month Teen Mom also played our first New York
show, got real-life vinyl albums to sell (at shows, now, online, soon), and
recorded most of a new set of four singles.
The White Ribbon, Rabbits,
Wild at Heart (viewed in small snippets at a recording
studio / not trying to sound cool but really), now that I’ve read more DFW
probably all other Lynch films will be watched soon.

It’s going to be an exciting few months.
I’m speaking at Visualized and am deathly afraid,
State of the Map US and am less afraid.
MapBox finally won and can announce a $575k grant
for OpenStreetMap improvements.
And I’m going to Montreal next week.
