On The Road Again – ADAA

I’m off to the ADAA Awards in NYC today. Beth and I will be there from the 13th till the 18th. I’ll probably have internet access for some of it, so feel free to keep in touch.

Here’s the information for the event:

Adobe Design Achievement Awards

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

The festivities are held at the

Skirball Center for the Performing Arts

566 LaGuardia Place

on the New York University campus

(at the corner of West 3rd Street and La Guardia Place)

Here’s a map to help you find the location.

The gallery showing opens at 6:00 pm and the awards ceremony begins at 7:30 pm.

We’ll conclude the evening with a champagne toast for the talented winners and finalists.

Dress is “creative formal.”

I think the ceremony may be invitation only, but the gallery event should be open to the public.

Cara Phillips

Cara Phillips, who runs a great blog called Ground Glass and also helps spearhead the amazing Women in Photography project through Humble Arts, recently sent me an email about her newly updated website. I’ve always liked her work, much of it dealing with issues of self esteem, cultural aesthetics, and ways of seeing beauty. She deals with some issues I get very heated up about, but I’ll let her work do the talking.

Recommended Reading

Thanks to Google Reader, sharing blog posts has just become easier. I’ve added an Also Read This widgit to my blog, so you can see what I’ve found interesting on the right hand side of the page, right above my archives. It will update automatically as I share through google reader.

You really should be sharing what you find interesting on google reader as well. Matt Gamber, for example, always marks very interesting posts (mostly from the consumerist and boing boing).

The Trolls Among Us

“We’re waiting,” Weev said. “We need someone to show us the way. The messiah.”

“How do you know it’s not you?” I asked.

“If it were me, I would know,” he said. “I would receive a sign.”

Zeno of Elea, Socrates and Jesus, Weev said, are his all-time favorite trolls. He also identifies with Coyote and Loki, the trickster gods, and especially with Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction. “Loki was a hacker. The other gods feared him, but they needed his tools.”
