I feel bad telling everybody that I’ve had a pleasantly low key weekend every time it happens because it makes my life seem as boring as…it is.

Topolsky in Mirrorshades, or, trying out Google Glass
I keep trying to not give a shit about Google Glass because…I mean we all know that it’s not the thing that makes this work right?

Why am I stopping sentences and then repeating them for explication?

Images of a massive, futuristic Megacity glittering in the night
I’d live in this fictional city. I’d live in a lot of fictional cities actually. I wonder if anybody bothers to do a “best cities to live in” list for fictional cities because I’d read the shit out of that list. I don’t care enough to look and see if anybody actually did one though.

Augmented Reality: The MIT Tongueduino
A multi-sensory tongue is the kind of cyborg future that’s so utterly bizarre that I kinda want to believe it’s the most likely option just to be contrary.
