A few random thoughts in no particular order:

  • Any device with a rechargable battery and a USB port should be able to recharge by USB trickle.
  • Online trading of out of print recordings should be encouraged.
  • There is very little moral distinction between trading MP3s and buying/selling used CDs.
  • iPhoto’s biggest shortcoming is not organizing still-camera movies
  • VHS is obsolete. Overdue.
  • iSync needs to support more phones, even if those phones have lousy firmware.
  • I would learn how to make polyphonic ringtones for my LG phone, but when I finally have time to learn how, I’ll likely already have a new phone which will play MP3s as ringtones. That’s going to be fun.
  • Wiggle-sticks just got more plausible.
  • A well crafted algorithm can be stunningly beautiful
  • Potatoes are beautiful
  • A good centering bit and jig beats a carefully aligned center punch
  • It’s been too long since I’ve spent any time with William Merritt Chase’s edges
  • The new MoMA is an absolute triumph. The building dwarfs it’s contents. Monet’s waterlillies have never been seen like this.
  • iMacs are a really good deal from Amazon.
  • Too many artists like to fall back on really tired cliches when answering simple questions.
  • I’m thinking about a complete concept-up redo of this site. Who knows when that will happen. I’m sort of glad I don’t have time right now.
