    Back on Radio1190 – DJing A Guest Set on Sub-Harmony

    During college at University of Colorado at Boulder, I worked at the college radio station Radio1190 KVCU as both the RPM Music Director and the host of my own radio show, The Acid Lounge. During the show’s 5 year run, I had the privelege of having DJ and producer Chad Westcott on as my co-host.…

  • Running the 2011 Bolder Boulder 10km Road Race

    Today in the Memorial Day tradition, I ran the Bolder Boulder 10km Road Race. It’s a great race through the streets of Boulder, Colorado, giving a complete tour of the town. I’ve been running this race since college, and every year it’s great. The entire town comes out to watch, everybody has fun, and the…

    Cross Section Views of Leica Lenses

    Here’s a cool cross sectional view of a high quality Leica lens, showing just how many glass and metal elements to into creating the finished product. Of note in this view, you can see how much actual structure is required around the glass elements, to make everything function correctly. Cross Section Views of Leica Lenses…

  • First Summer Road Trip: Cincinnati to Denver via I-90

    First Summer Road Trip: Cincinnati to Denver via I-90

    To start off my summer, after departing from NYC back home to Cincinnati for a few short days, I made the drive from Cincinnati, Ohio out to Denver, Colorado. I’ve done this drive many times before, always on the straight shot I-70, through Kansas and Missouri. It’s a good, efficient drive, but since I’ve done…

  • Mt. Rushmore

    Mt. Rushmore

    Today, at long last, I visited Mt. Rushmore. After waking up in Rapid City, SD, I made the quick 30 minute drive into the Black Hills National Forest, and up to the Mt. Rushmore memorial.. blanketed in a thick fog. When I got there, visibility was a solid 20 feet, and nobody could see anything.…

  • Badlands National Park

    Badlands National Park

    After sleeping last night in mostly uninteresting Mitchell, South Dakota, I got an early start on the day and drove down the road to Badlands National Park. Although there was a low cloud cover and light mist most of the day, Badlands was still amazing. The scope of the erosion, and distinct levels between the…

  • Mississippi River Lock and Dam #7

    During my three day drive from Cincinnati, Ohio to Denver, Colorado by way of I-90, I made a quick stop while crossing over the Mississippi River. Officially on the west side! Also of note, I had a very late dinner last night in Madison, WI with friend Gena Larson. Great seeing random friends spread across…

  • Lunch in Chicago

    A quick stopover in Chicago, Illinois this afternoon for lunch with freelance designer, illustrator and web developer Jeff Couturier. Jeff is the driving force behind Chicago Design and Development Studio 10 Volt Media, and we worked together for many years during my days at Morpheus Media. We grabbed a quick bite to eat at the…

  • Summer Travels, Stop 1: Cincinnati

    This week marks the beginning of my brief travels across the United States for the summer, and naturally, I started in Cincinnati, Ohio, where I grew up. My time in CIncinnati was brief, so here are a few notes: Stayed at the house I grew up in, which was nice, but strange – the rest…

    Infographic: The Geosocial Universe

    Although we here in America typically use Facebook to network, there are lots of other social networks out there, some of which are extremely popular in other countries. These include QZone, Mixi, and Google’s Orkut. In this interesting infographic, Jess3 lays it all out. Also, in a nod to sharing their infographics, Jess3 released the…

  • Track me with the SPOT Satellite Messenger

    Track me with the SPOT Satellite Messenger

    While living in NYC, checking in on Foursquare and sharing my physical location as I traveled around the city became a regular occurance. Friends could see where I was, and I would see where they were. However, as I venture out of the city for the summer, and possibly longer, I’ll still be able to…

  • FastCustomer

    FastCustomer

    You know, it’s kind of pathetic that I actually relate with a product like this – that I’ve spent so many hours of my life waiting on hold to speak to a customer service rep or tech support that I feel the pull to streamline the process. But, I do. During years of tinkering with…

  • Kickstarter: Olloclip iPhone Lens System

    Here’s one Kickstarter product worth supporting.. the Olloclip lens converter for iPhone. This nifty, compact lens snaps onto the corner of a naked iPhone 4 and provides a wide angle and fisheye lens. I love iPhone photography, so seeing new high quality photography accessories being developed for it is good news. Since I’ve gotten an…
