the new timeline of suck

I believe that in the first year of this project, I have committed most creative sins Merlin refers to in this talk, with the happy exception of activities worth promotion to the rank of Salami Commander. The result: tens of thousands of words, which are totally not a book. I tried a few more things […]

rubber teardrop + nibbled to death by ducks

My goal for the week was a video update, catching you guys up to speed on Phase II of the master plan. Instead it’s been a week of chaste surge protectors (don’t ask) and video clips going inexplicably green. Hideous, night-vision green.

streams of information

raising the stakes

Update #2 originally posted on August 19 I’ve been spending a lot of time doing two things this week: staring at this web page with my jaw hanging open, and pondering how to raise Punk Mathematics to a level 548% (as of this writing) of what I first had in mind. I’m still reworking my […]

exponential wow

Update #1 originally posted on August 7 It took 18 hours for this project to fund, and 36 hours for me to have the slightest idea what to say. You, network, have rocked my world. On Thursday I asked the internet, “Hey, should I write this book? It’s been kicking around in my head for […]
