I recently made a few calling cards for use at the Mars Society convention. I kinda like them, and they come in handy when I want to encourage random people to go to Global Spin:
Anyone interested in one of their own? I’d be happy to make up a PDF with your name and globalspin.com address and send you instructions on how to print them.
I’ve been looking for a few choice keywords to describe what we talk about here at Global Spin. You know, “science, culture, politics, writing, foolishness” kind of thing. One of the places I checked was Compete, which offered the oddest suggestion yet: “important punctuation.”
So, yeah. I just had to Google it. There on page 2 was an old article on the importance of punctuation. The link was bad and it needed an update, but there it is. Science, culture, politics, writing, foolishness, and punctuation.
I’m hoping to give Global Spin a bit of a refresh over the next [mumble mumble time period], so don’t be alarmed if you see sudden changes or other odd behavior. For those who are interested in such things, I’ll be:
- switching to a nicer site theme based on Peaceful Rush
- upgrading to WordPress 2.2 (with extra goodness)
- adding contributor pages (like this early example)
…but not necessarily in that order. I’ll post another update when some or all of it is finished and ready to be praised.
Those of you with an interest in things Chinese and para-Chinese (I’m looking at you. Ahem.) might be interested in reading the blog that anthropologist David K. Jordan has been maintaining while spending a semester teaching in Asia. It’s chock full of linguistic and religious observations, all with that pleasant snarkiness that DKJ has mastered.
This makes me happy. There’s a whole blog, Paleo-Future.Com, that focuses on images of the future that people in the past have held. Lots of Disney stuff, of course, but other very fascinating pictures, videos, and other resources.
