Sometimes we have to put the tech, and the presenting and the other stuff geeky aside and just enjoy a glass of wine. But maybe we can combine a few of these. The latest tech in wine storage. The geeky … Continue reading
I’m a big fan of books. Not just the stories, but the book construction as well. From bindings, paper choice, typeset, typography, layout, it’s all interesting to me. Mark Z. Danielewski is most famous for House of Leaves, an inventive … Continue reading
Every now and then I start off a blog entry with “I really don’t write often enough…” But that’s not really true. I write a ton of stuff, it just doesn’t always end up here. The articles I write very … Continue reading
