Why I Love The Dress Debate

Yesterday the internet collectively lost its damn mind over a picture of a dress. On the same day the FCC made a landmark decision over Net Neutrality, Russia threatened to cut gas to Europe, and an American atheist blogger was hacked to death with machetes in Bangladesh … we’re mostly talking about a dress. Also, llamas. […]

6 Modern Ideas That Are Decidedly Ancient

With the ability to communicate over vast distances, fly across the globe, and play Candy Crush Saga while standing in a fast food line, we modern first-world humans are living what would have seemed like fantastic science fiction only a few generations ago. But Third Wave cultural bias means that we look at the distant past […]

Darkness, Horror, & Maturity in 80s Cartoons

Kid-focused entertainment in the 1980s is best known for being cheaply-produced half-hour advertisements for toys and breakfast cereal.

4 Ways Government Surveillance Is Beyond Global

I’ve come to believe that it’s capitalism that softened the way for government surveillance. Most of us have gladly surrendered our privacy to companies in the name of selling us toothpaste, and the government listening to our phone calls, reading our emails, and peeking in on naked Skype sessions just may not seem like a […]

4 Recent Examples of Organizational Scroogemanship

It’s only days away from our office luncheon at Signal Fire Studios, and the fake tree has fake presents sitting underneath in festive fashion in the building lobby. This time of year always leaves me feeling that I’m not doing enough, not giving enough both in terms of the business — rewarding loyal customers, my […]

Writer, Baker, and T-Shirt Maker

Last night I created a t-shirt as a birthday present for my daughter, featuring a chicken wearing a necktie. I suppose this bears some explanation. It was about 8th grade I settled into what would be my dress code for life. Being the dork I’ve always been, in my early childhood I tended to dress […]
