Five Minute Hamlet

TweetMy daughter Zoe, the budding cinematographer, staged a production of Hamlet in Minecraft.   She built the sets, wrote the script, acted, directed, recorded the voice overs, edited the movie, and generally worked her little tail off on the project (with a little help from her younger brother).  Here it is in five-minute fashion, complete with […]

Why Khan and my wife are the two most amazing people I know!

TweetI don’t know Professor Khan.  Not personally, anyway. But he’s had a profound affect on my kids lives.  Heck, I wish he’d been around when I was a kid. So if you don’t know him, you should. You see, he created a university of learning for kids online.  Not only that but he’s done it […]

Computer algrorithms have reached the point that facial recognition has become easy enough to become common place.  They can even […]

Two AR Links, A Review and a Bonus Video

Had a busy, productive week for the current novel project about Alexandria.  Added a few posts to Games Alfresco–one about a new AR RPG called Traveller and another about an interactive billboard.  Also, The Digital Sea got a nice review from the Literary R&R. And last, because I […]

In Bacon Related News

TweetWhat worries me about this product is that the marketing department feels it’s necessary to qualify that it’s “Real” bacon.  Does this mean there are bacon impostors out there right now, devaluing the “Candy of Meats” with shoddy substitutes?  I shudder. Marketing, you should be ashamed of yourself.  Now go sit in the corner and write fifty jingles […]
