…Changes are afoot?

Kineda Redesign

A few bits of news from around the Blogosphere:

  • The always beautiful Kineda has just undergone a drastic redesign, switching over from the lovely Shoryuken black design to a clean-airy Chun Li design. If you’re looking for insight into the fabulous lifestyle only bling can bring, then check Kineda out.
  • Webomatica has just passed the 1,000 post mark. If you’re looking for great insight into the world of tech, movies, music…and bottle caps, then check Webomatica out as well, since I’m sure the next 1,000 are going to be just as good as the first.



…It’s Things Thursday: Everything Is Miscellaneous?

Everything Is Miscellaneous

Though human beings are “information omnivores”, constantly collecting, labeling, and organizing data, the shift from physical to digital is “mixing, burning, and ripping lives apart”. David Weinberger’s book, Everything Is Miscellaneous, examines this shift in the way we look at the world, and shows why categories are a thing of the past.

    In Everything Is Miscellaneous, David Weinberger charts the new principles of digital order that are remaking business, education, politics, science, and culture. In his rollicking tour of the rise of the miscellaneous, he examines why the Dewey decimal system is stretched to the breaking point, how Rand McNally decides what information not to include in a physical map (and why Google Earth is winning that battle), how Staples stores emulate online shopping to increase sales, why your children’s teachers will stop having them memorize facts, and how the shift to digital music stands as the model for the future in virtually every industry. Finally, he shows how by “going miscellaneous,” anyone can reap rewards from the deluge of information in modern work and life.
    From A to Z, Everything Is Miscellaneous will completely reshape the way you think–and what you know–about the world.

This one is definitely on my “To Read” list, and has gotten quite a bit of buzz around the blogosphere (and even the realworldosphere) as a new way of looking at the world. Are you ready?

Question: What section are you supposed to find this book on the shelves?

…Juggling + Jogging = Joggling?

Just Your Average Joggler

Joggling, another sport introduced to me by the blogosphere, is a combination of juggling while jogging (hence the name). Apparently, jogglers say “the rhythm of juggling with three objects corresponds perfectly with the action and pace of running”. Corresponding or not, it’s got to be funny watching someone try to run and learn to juggle at the same time, and I’m sure it’s worth a few giggles. (Random thought: From now on, DYH has trademarked the word Gigging, a combination of giggling while jogging.) Just Your Average Joggler is “a blog about running marathons while juggling or joggling” and features “training tips and running/joggling advice” for any would be jogglers, so put on your joggling shoes and get out there, the would is in need of a few more jogglers.
