As we traverse the final phases of maximum raw information accumulation, potentially equipping us for jacking in to the promise of the Singularity, the contents of many lifetimes’ worth of knowledge, art, education, and history are now at our fingertips. More and more Universities, libraries and arts institutions have swung open their digital doors and granted access to their lectures, courses and curricula free of charge to anyone in the world with a connection to the web. Access to education is fundamentally shifting our society towards an unmappable

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

Alien Threat in Pop CultureCould the alien invasion film phenomenon be an expression of the hope for humanity's unity? Prometheus, the highly anticipated prequel to all the Alien films (which also features the return of original Alien director Ridley Scott) opens Friday. The film's story involves a team of astronauts sent to deepest space to investigate the origins of human life, only to discover that an imminent alien invasion may soon wipe out all human life.Alien Threat in Pop Culture in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

The magic of Alessio AlbiSome months ago I had the pleasure to work with Alessio Albi, one of the most interesting fine art photographers in Italy. He is a young guy, with a different job, but photography is his big passion and I'd say this is one of the best hobby realizations that I've seen so farThe magic of Alessio Albi in Personal More Like This

Litestep on Windows 7UPDATE(9/11/2011): lsdev.org is currently down which is a major bummer because it is a huge resource for the litestep community. from what i've read some kind folks are trying to find a new home for lsdev but i'm not really in contact with anyone so i don't know anything for certain, just what i read online. if you happen to be a new litestep user you picked a somewhat bad time to get into it =/Litestep on Windows 7 in Personal More Like This
UPDATE: this tutorial has gotten a lot of attention since i posted it 2 years ago.. so i decided to update the information, add information and even a nice video tutorial by andredk which is a little long, but very detailed. i updated the old journal and submitted a new one for good measure
installing litestep is not a big deal. it has dependencies like any other application, and without them it will error. assuming your system meets all the requirements right now you can stop reading this and install liteste
Where is we at?So, the Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers) made it to the promised page 50. Thanks to everyone who faved and commented and generally made me feel awesome about what I was doing.Where is we at? in Personal More Like This
During the production of these "first 50"(as I like to call them) I received a number of offers from folks who would like to publish it for you all, and I'm hopeful that one of these offers is going to work out. If it doesn't work out, I'll start looking down different avenues so that folks can eventually get their hands on the dead tree edition that so many have asked for.
In the meantime I've been revising many of the pages, with a particular attention being given to the early stuff where both art and anapestic tetrameter are being given a facelift. Another thing that I'm doing with the revisions is changing all of the single pages into double page spreads so that the whole thing can breathe and get closer in line with the way the great Theodor Geisel might have done it.&
2011 As Seen Through Art2011 was full of emotional events the world around, and our community responded at unprecedented levels. From natural disasters to historical celebrations, entertainment milestones to tearful goodbyes, our community spoke out like no other community can — artistically, creatively, and emotionally. In many ways, last year marked the final chapter of a few eras, opening the door to new beginnings for 2012. Let's take a look...2011 As Seen Through Art in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

The purpose by which I came here is to introduce things various of Japan to you.
By the way, I sometimes wonder.
The reason, from my home, is that I can communicate with people of many countries around the world.
And Since lot of people are uploading the self-portrait, I feel like you are nearby.
Community sites on the Internet, it is interesting.
Hope all is going well with you.
