Noticed that we have reached the point in the year when it is dark when Jessie goes to bed at 7:30 and still dark when she gets up at 7. Here comes mørktiden.

nordicdigitalculture.net
We’ve been working for the past year to develop the Nordic Digital Culture Network, a collaboration between Digital Culture at the University, Blekinge Technical Institute, ITU Copenhagen, and the University of Jyvaskyla. The network will support student and faculty exchanges between the institutions, joint courses, curriculum development workshops, and other activities. I should also mention that we welcome exchange students and M.A. applicants from other institutions as well.

my poor baby girl has been sick like crazy, and then today she took a tumble down the stairs. Nothing broken, but she looks sort of like the boxer in Raging Bull, and she’s teething and has a sore throat. But she loved the broccoli in the gorgonzola sauce.

Hey happy birthday, Uncle Larry. You’re like 12 in dog years. Enjoy the cake.

ocalization sucks. Localization is just free market capitalism getting its hooks into your back and telling you where you live and to stay there and do as you’re told.

Here’s that program — I think I’ll hear about some things that will be useful for my students, though I’m not completely jazzed, to be honest.

Big love to Kyler on his big day. His birthday crown is in the mail, and I’ll bring him something in person in a couple weeks.

supports the free distribution of fresh tasty fruit and vegetables to American schoolchildren every day in the classrooms before school starts. I think that should be part of the social contract. An apple or something, maybe a carrot or some seedless grapes. Perhaps a seasonal squash such as a zucchini lightly sauteed in garlic or pumpkin with a bit of butter and cinnamon. For every kid. Every day

Thousands of angry white idiots descended on Washington today to protest big government’s ignorance of angry white idiot issues.
Scott wrote on John Cayley’s timeline.
John, I’ve been meaning to ask you. Have you ever thought about you know, sort of speeding up your poems? I appreciate them, but I haven’t got all day. I’ve tried to read them in the hot tub, but I haven’t got a hot tub.

please don’t be offended if I don’t accept the smile or heart you have sent me with a facebook application. I smile back at you and you are in my heart, I assure you. I also accept the drink and the song, and sing and drink with you, and welcome your animals onto my farm, and help you to whack whomever needs to be put down, quietly, in my own way. I’m just always reluctant to welcome a new application into my life.

it occurred to me today that this is the first September 11th since 2001 that I didn’t feel like America was headed toward a darker place than the one it left the year before.

thought Joe Wilson was way out of line, but did you get a look at John Boehner of Ohio? You can smell the evil fumes coming off that guy from a thousand miles away. Who’s his next opponent? I’d send her twenty bucks in a heartbeat.

hopes all my right-wing facebook friends are going to watch the President’s speech tonight. I think that commie is going to suggest that poor people get health care without becoming indebted for the rest of their lives. Why I never. He’ll change America forever, the American way gone completely curve. What’s next? Rich people driving their own BMWs to work while their chauffeurs golf?

No one should die because they cannot afford health care, and no one should go broke because they get sick. Obviously.

Congrats, Adam. I assume everyone is talking about the birth of your daughter and not the new TV. You wouldn’t name a TV Evelyn. Get some pictures up, fast. Enjoy fatherhood, the best thing that could ever happen to you.

Aurora is wearing legwarmers and a skinny tie to junior high today. The 80s must be back. I’m trying to decide whether today is good one to try out my rain-proof trousers.

the setup with the wireless keyboard and the computer on the TV screen works great, but in our new place I am far away enough from the screen that the frequency of typo has increased considerably to embarrassing effects.
