one couple, two very different perspectives on the internet and interactive design

posted by edward on October 23, 2006

Our dear friend Kim Collmer recently asked Janet and me, and several other friends, what we thought about the state of the Internet and Interactive Design. Though Janet and I have been working in similar fields, we have very different perspectives on the Internet. Janet's work tends to emphasize content, while my work tends to emphasize systems. The following are several interview questions posed by Kim and our answers.

Upgraded to Nucleus 3.22 and installed NP_blacklist and NP_comment control. Aah, much better. Please feel free to comment on any post! If you comment on something 5 days or older, I have to approve it first, but it will get up the next day. Just don't talk about poker.

I've had to turn commenting off due to huge volumes of spam. Right now I have to ban IP addresses one by one, and now there are too many to handle. Once I have a solution in place I'll enable them again.

when the levee breaks

"When The Levee Breaks"

If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break, [X2]
When The Levee Breaks I'll have no place to stay.

Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan, [X2]
Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home,
Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well.

Don't it make you feel bad
When you're tryin' to find your way home,
You don't know which way to go?
If you're goin' down South
They go no work to do,
If you don't know about Chicago.

Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good,
Now, cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good,
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move.

All last night sat on the levee and moaned, [X2]
Thinkin' about me baby and my happy home.
Going, going to Chicago... Going to Chicago... Sorry but I can't take you...
Going down... going down now... going down....

bumperstickers, t-shirts, band names, and thesis ideas

posted by edward on September 01, 2005
Bumperstickers, band names, and t-shirt slogans have a natural affinity for one another. It occurs to me that liberal arts thesis titles belong to the same class.

Thesis ideas
  • "Freedom isn't free, but Haliburton is getting one hell of a deal."

  • "Dungeons & Dragons and Christianity: creating the mundane from myth."

  • "What do you think about Bush now, you stupid fuck?"
  • Front of T-shirt:
    "Fantasy: Str 20 Dex 16 Con 18 Int 18 Wis 17 Cha 18"
    Back of T-shirt:
    "Reality: Str 12 Dex 9 Con 12 Int 13 Wis 13 Cha 7"

Band names
  • No Lefts on Denny
  • Monstrous Denali
  • Hippy Big Buckle [real band name]
  • Bad Feng Shui
  • The Assless Chaps
  • Wafting Patchouli
