TweetToday I’m starting a new video series called Ask the Author. Every Tuesday I’m going to be posting a video answering questions asked by my readers. If you have a question you’d like me to answer, please leave it in the comments or drop me a message. I can’t wait to see what questions you […]
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 […]
TweetMy favorite Dr. Suess book performed by people straight out of his imagination.
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 […]
TweetFor my favorite gamer girl–fourteen years ago today we said our vows. It’s been a long wonderful marriage with ups and downs (mostly ups) and I’m certain the next fourteen will be even better than the first. Thank you for being my strange companion and I couldn’t imagine hanging out this long with anyone but […]
TweetYeah. This doesn’t have to anything to do with augmented reality or writing. But it’s sock puppets. Enough said. Cue the awesomeness. Go to Socks Incorporated to learn more about their interactive game/theater/sockmania. And if you’re aghast at why sock puppets are awesome. Then you never saw Sifl and Olly on MTV in the 90s.
TweetThe product is called nicomimi and its made by Neurowear, but it’s probably better named Kitty Wear or something of the sort. Nicomimi are the post-millennium version of the mood ring and just cool enough to cross-over from the furry crowd. “Neurowear” is the name of our project to develop fashion items and gadgets using brain […]
Tweet The Dangers of Computer Vision. (I thought about calling this article “The Passive and Insidious Collection of Data with Cameras” or “Should We Fear Facial Recognition?” but I think the current title gets the point across.) Computer algrorithms have reached the point that facial recognition has become easy enough to become common place. They can even […]
TweetLife is random and full of amusement. 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 […]
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 […]
