Other Ten Percent 9/16/10

Sep 16 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

Hey everybody, is everybody getting bored with this? Maybe it’s just the shake down phase for me what with school starting up and some job prospects coming up but I feel like OTP could use a bit of retooling. Any suggestions? Am I posting too many like adorable cat videos? Not doing enough commentary? Too many Daily What posts? I dunno I may try changing some stuff up just to change it if I don’t get any feedback as I do periodically. Always good to shake things up again, more likely to grab stuff even I’m not expecting that way. Continue Reading »

For some reason, when I do TNTVC on a Monday I get Other Ten Percent done with no pressure, but when it’s actually on a Tuesday I inevitably feel like I’ve run out of time and doing it last minute. Time is weird. Let’s stop wasting it. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 9/10/10

Sep 10 2010 Published by under Daily Posts

Oh right, I should stop reading Zero History and do this thing. Hey, here’s a new thing I’m going to do: post a relevant paragraph from an otherwise comic specific series of random insights by Warren Ellis.
“The truth is that working the attention economy is hard in 2010 because there is so much noise and so many things vying for your attention. I actually feel a glimmer of pride because I’ve gotten my Google Reader down to under 600 unread items for the first time in six months. I think of it as the Manfred Macx problems, from Charlie Stross’ ACCELERANDO – Macx had to absorb a megabyte of text and a few gigs of AV a day just to stay current. This is why the web is still rammed with curatorial sites, from BoingBoing on down. The difference between them and this site is simply that this is my research store, accessible from anywhere with an internet connection (which, for me, is anywhere aside from rural Kent, apparently, where I think I have to sacrifice a hare to get bendwidth).”
Strangely good description of what I’m doing here really. Manfred Macx is one of two fictional people I strive to be like in Other Ten Percent though I probably shouldn’t. The other is Hubertus Bigend. Google them.

So instead of going to Idaho I decided to get sick out of nowhere on thursday night and then spend the weekend sequestered in my room irritated at life. And isn’t that what Labor Day is all about? No? It isn’t even the tiniest bit what it’s about? Well then. Continue Reading »
