Other Ten Percent 1/31/2011

Jan 31 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

And now one last experiment where I just post every single tab I have open that I haven’t posted before. I think I’m largely going to go back to the streamlined version of the old format (links in the title, less links, more commentary) but I reserve the right to switch the format around a little on occasion when I have something to say. Basically what this all taught me is that I miss the flexibility I had when this first started and I’ll go back to that when I can. Anyway, right now I’m reading the Jane McGonigal book and may have a whole day based around that and I’m also working on a bit of a geekier companion piece to this thing that I wrote for PCWorld about ways to get internet after the government shuts it down that is strangely enough getting me like 100 tea party followers on Twitter.

Other Ten Percent 1/28/11

Jan 28 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

I kinda feel like a failure for not coming up with a totally new format over this month that I can do regularly but I think now it’s just time to switch over to shake down mode and figure out what to do with the things I’ve learned for a while before announcing a new format for each day of the week. I’ve got some ideas and stuff should be getting back to normal starting next week but I may still mess around a little. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 1/27/11

I sorta think whatever plan I do has to have the option to just do things the old fashioned way because some days I just don’t have time to do any of the new extended writing formats and today I’m just sorta frankly in no mood. So here’s just a good old fashioned OTP. We’ll probably do those at least twice a week. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 1/25/11

Today’s theme is things falling apart and how that can actually be kinda fun in a weird sort of way. Bruce Sterling gave a talk way back in the day when I was first starting to do OTP where he came up with the idea of apocalyptic eurphoria, where things are falling apart and we’re all so excited because we never liked those structures anyway that we don’t notice the value of what’s being lost and today I’d like to discuss things falling apart that I don’t think have a whole lot of value lost…or at least I hope they don’t.

Alright people it’s an all video monday as we spend a week going over the experiments I did this month that I think actually worked. Mondays are fairly easy to do themes for since I have so much content to work with and a decent amount of time to do it in. Still considering the length of a lot of these videos this entry is probably going to be commentary light and BoingBoing and Daily What heavy. Continue Reading »

Other Ten Percent 1/20/11

So my plan for today is to do links that I think will annoy at least one person who reads OTP along with thrilling at least one person who reads this. You’ll be happy to know that next week I’m going to try and synthesizes all of this into an actually useful format so our long national nightmare is almost over. Continue Reading »

So today’s theme is just doing links to stuff that’s stereotypically what I’m into. Two of them were suggested on Twitter and I just couldn’t resist. Continue Reading »
