Virtual Reality is really real (but not really)

maxresdefaultHoly crap! I just tried a virtual reality rig for the first time.  My friend Simonas has a complete set up and has been asking me to come try to out for a while.

Steve Valentine’s – MAGIC ON THE GO

Okay, so you all know I am an aficionado of the magical arts. That is to say, I loves me a good card trick.

The Shape of Stories

I use the Vonnegut clip which ends this piece all the time in writing classes. It’s fascinating in that we absolutely canmap the arc, but it’s the details where it all gets interesting.

Plus, they use a Čiurlionis image in the header, which is just cool!
