posts brought to you by the category “only the nose knows”

Das eez kaput! Sometime around 2002 I spaced the entire database table that mapped individual entries to categories. Such is life. What follows is a random sampling of entries that were associated with the category. Over time, the entries will be updated and then it will be even more confusing. Wander around, though, it's still a fun way to find stuff.

Libby Miller & Martin Poulter : Easy Image Annotation for the Semantic Web

see also : Managing Digital Photographs with RDF/N3 . This is not just a draft version, but an incomplete draft version. I started it in the airport in August and don't expect to continue working on it again until November, at the earliest. But you may enjoy it even though most of the content is about why RDF/XML sucks and N3 doesn't.

Philemon nodded knowingly.

Are you out of your mind? Shelby asked. There's already so much food that no one will have room!

That's what they all say, I replied. And then it arrives and, with it, The Silence.

Philemon nodded knowingly.

Editor's note: it was pointed out to me, today, that I was clearly very drunk by the time the following occurred.

The problem is, I told the Princess, that I've always been very drunk by the time I get around to making these. So, I never remember what I did the last time or if I'm actually doing it right.

Both the Princess and Frances licked their plates clean.

Oh god, Karl's going to want these comments embedded as RDF in each picture...

  1. I fell asleep there, twelve years ago, next to a beautiful woman. When we woke up, we had one of those sickly-sweet lovey-dovey moments that marked the beginning of a two year roller coaster.
  2. I spent a lot of time there during high school. Skipping classes, discussing the relative merits of movies seen at Cinema V (Café Flesh was ultimately pretty boring though I've never been able to forgot those weird baby people with the giant rat tails; A Clockwork Orange forever marred by memories of a guy named Solo yelling out, during the eyeball scene : Check out that cleavage! ), playing frisbee and all that other stuff teenagers do.
  3. I don't about that one, it was after my time. But doesn't he just make you want to kick him square in the nuts?

Janice Stein : The Cult of Efficiency

"These lectures are about post-industrial society in the making. There is a growing emphasis on efficiency in this era of globalization, and the language of efficiency shapes the way citizens think about their most important shared values. But hidden in the polemics about efficiency are, I believe, much more important and enduring conversations about accountability and choice in post-industrial societies. To discover how these arguments live in practice, to move beyond the fixed positions of our political warriors, I wanted to look at what we as citizens are saying about public schools and hospitals. It is here that citizens engage in the most immediate and practical ways with the arguments of our times. I think by listening to these very local debates we can explore the dilemmas of democratic processes in a global age, where waste is a sin but the public trust remains sacred. Surprisingly, I find that citizens want to see both less and more of the state. Although citizens in post-industrial society are less deferential, more distrustful of authority, and more confident of their capacity to make the important choices, the escape from the state is more apparent than real."

Steve Pepper : The TAO of Topic Maps

"While it is possible to represent immensely complex structures using topic maps, the basic concepts of the model – Topics, Associations, and Occurrences (TAO) – are easily grasped. This paper provides a non-technical introduction to these and other concepts (the IFS and BUTS of topic maps), relating them to things that are familiar to all of us from the realms of publishing and information management, and attempting to convey some idea of the uses to which topic maps will be put in the future." via xblog

Jeff Covey thinks he can win the browser wars

by "[simplifying] the Web. We need to lower the entry costs for the people writing alternative browsers. Web sites need to loose the Flash, the Javascript links, and the font tags. That too is hard work. If you have a Web page, resist the temptation to add clever stuff to it. Disable Javascript, Java, and remote fonts in your browser. Ignore sites which rely on these things. If you visit pages which do, drop the author a line and tell him about it. Email is best. If you can't be bothered with email, try the approach I use: I request links such as http:// www.somecommercesite.com/using/ javascript/has/just/lost/you/a/customer/ or http:// www.someidiot.com/lose/ the/flash/or/lose/this/viewer in the hope that somebody reads the error logs. ... Focus on content, not looks." Personally, I think this guy is living in a fantasy world but it takes all kinds.

Naomi Klein : When is a moose just a moose?

"There are many other intertextual moose projects in the works: the Great Canadian Moose Hunt (rules TBA), and mass moose pie-ings (inspired by the much-maligned tart-slingers in PEI). And while it's hard to find a moose that still has its antlers attached, virtual antlers have begun sprouting up around Toronto in the oddest of places -- for instance, drawn onto the heads of models in bus-shelter billboards. (If corporate advertisements are transformed into works of art when painted onto moose statues, then surely all ads can similarly be transformed into impromptu moose.)" see also : Charles Pachter : Moose Factory Gallery

The road to Hell is paved with telephone companies

It's the dial-tone stupid. The modem I bought for my Visor doesn't grok the Italian dial tone. I will rant at length about the morons who run high tech companies when I get back. Until then I will write for the web periodically; I didn't come to Italy to sit in front of a web browser. The rest will have to wait. Sorry, I'm not very happy about it either.

I generally like my bank

but it is perpetually staffed by trainees. I've begun to develop elaborate conspiracy theories that this, coupled with the banks network terminals that are slower than a 14.4 Internet connection, is a deliberate strategy on the part of The Suits to drive me to do all my banking online. Once that happens, [they] can simply fire all the tellers and use the money to build more trophy houses on Martha's Vineyard. I'm hardly above using an Instabroke machine, but I think human interaction in our day to day lives is important and, ultimately, enriches us. I remeber Kurt Vonnegut, speaking after the infamous commencement speech brou-haha, saying he preferred going to the post office over sending email. "I met a cop today," he said.

One of the best things about the hot tub

is that there are no emergencies, only opportunites. For instance, when the seat you're sitting on suddenly detaches itself from the bottom of the tub, you don't think "Where will I sit now." You think "Floating bar!" Yay! Floating bar!

Serge Halami on the Cyberdamned

"It's like Communist China under Mao," explains one of the new economy's production-line workers, "you're constantly being pushed to help the collective. If you fail to do this, you're going against your family. But if this is a family, it belongs on the Jerry Springer show."

Morning Edition on cigarettes, taxes and the Internet

William Safire : Bagels vs. Doughnuts

"In the bagel's adaptive triumph lies the poppyseed of its self-destruction. For the bagel has moved toward the center, and that center has no distinctive hole; its crust has lost its hard-boiled nature." Finally, someone else who thinks blueberry bagels are the work of dark dark forces!

City of Montreal : Top 10 Garbage Crimes

In the last 30 years, Montreal has had three mayors. The first built the <a href = "http://www.ville.montreal.qc.ca/panoramas/refvdm/to.mov">Olympic stadium</a>. The second spent $1M to rewire the cross on <a href = "http://www.ville.montreal.qc.ca/panoramas/belvedere/98nov/mtl13.mov">the mountain</a> with fiber-optics so that it will turn purple when the Pope dies. Finally, we have a guy who got elected on a platform of doing nothing but planting <a href = "http://www.ville.montreal.qc.ca/mtl-hiroshima/expo-mtl/quicktimevr/refvdm/jjv2h.mov">lots of flowers</a> and who now wants to fine people 500$ if their garbage bags are too small. I can't wait to go home!

Sam Henderson

thinks you should avoid the School for Visual Arts if you want to be a cartoonist. I recommend reading Dave Sim's How to become a cartooning self-publisher . A series of twenty essays originally published in his Notes from the President column, they cover most of the bases including 'How to find a printer', 'Copyright, trademarks and taxes' and 'How not to waste time and just produce comics'.

NY Times : The Éminence of Excess

Isn't is fitting that on the craziest weekend in recent memory, here on the Vineyard, the Times runs a feature on Mickey -The Gapman- Drexler's architect. (Drexler recently built an enormous boat-shaped trophy house, up-Island, complete with 5000$ bathroom fixtures.)

The Sunday Times : So what is Stuckism?

The group's manifesto proclaims it "bitterly opposed to Brit Shit (inexplicably known by some as Brit Art) and other elitist art school pretensions, ie most contemporary art, including, but not limited to, performance art, installation art, video art, conceptual art, minimal art, academic art and particularly any so-called art which incorporates dead animals or tents". Meanwhile, the Anti-Stuckist is described by her dealer as a "gracious anti-diva." The year before I got to art school , a disgruntled graduating student mounted a show called "stuck" -- as in, stuck in the 70's.

slashdot has pointed people to the Stan Lee site

so now I feel obliged to point people to this interview with Dave Sim . Notwithstanding his world view (see The Dave Sim Misogyny Page ), he has demonstrated that independent comic book creators can succeed without having to bow to the Beast. See also : The Creator's Bill of Rights .

Melamid on art and religion

"I truly believe that art has become a religion. . . . If you like the Mona Lisa, God bless you, there's nothing wrong with that -- just as you can believe in Jesus, or in any God you want. But the organized church of art, those education departments that try to convince people by force of persuasion that this or that is good art, doesn't leave you any room or choice to say if something is good or bad. . . . They used to beat up children, now they show them paintings."
