I feel like I haven't posted in a week or ten days sometimes and then I look and see that it's been almost a month since I last wrote something here. Pathetic. So, since I've got to post, I'll have to fill this entry with trivialities. Reverse chronological style. Let's see. Just got home from locking myself out of my place for the first time. Unfortunately the unseasonably warm winter disappeared yesterday to be replaced by bitter cold. Bad time to lock yourself out. Had to walk down to the hospital to meet up with Neil and get myself back in. Ah, what else, I've been obsessing on the bright white cleanliness of my new shoes. Not because I'm trying to keep them all white, but cause I think it looks absolutely weird to have shoes this white (and they're not even white shoes!?). What's probably really strange though is becoming so used to the old ass shoes that I've been wearing for far too long (told you this was trivial).
But on the non-trivial side of things (finally something is coming to me), the Eyebeam OpenLab has released some really cool projects in the last week or two. Mike put out his super-cool Ogle and Evan released De Touch. The former is a tool for grabbing 3D images from games/programs (like printscreen, but for 3D) and the latter is a webapp that "explores the manipulation of the human form." (i.e. it undoes what touch-up artists do to photos before we see them on the front cover of magazines). I've got my del.icio.us based project coming out in (hopefully) the next week, so be prepared. I've got to follow in some enormously successful footsteps.....not that I'm anxious about it. Ok, yes I am.
