Internet like heroin

Internet like heroin
Not heroin, I know, but I really didn't want a picture of a needle here! :p

Back in April 2004, I quoted this: [original now unavailable]

"Like heroin, I don't think the internet is one of those things that you can just do casually."
-Rory Blyth

I remember I really agreed with Rory at the time.

Well... now I was about to brag about how I'm over the RSS feed addiction, how I'm over the Facebook feed addiction, how I'm over the twitter feed addiction, how I'm over the Reddit feed... yep I was about to brag... and then it dawned on me: oh how many hours per day I am stuck on YouTube.

Yep... I don't think my use of Youtube is casual any more! :/

"At least I'm learning things"... that's my excuse now... just as it was back then.

Post-It wars!

Post-It wars!
Post-It wars!

Poping up faster than mushrooms in this rainy summer we have here in France are Post-It pixel art icons on office windows all over the place!

Above are the Post-It windows I originally saw from my office window a couple of days ago. Below is my space invader response ;) – Obviously I’m not equipped with enough Post-It colors to go ballistic like these guys, but it crossed my mind to order some :p

This whole thing started as a friendly “war” between two opposite companies in the East of Paris. Now it’s everywhere! Some companies are even doing multilevel installations on bigger office buildings!

I wonder how long it will take for this to start in other countries!?

Face Your Manga

Face Your Manga

Facing your manga is the hype du jour. This is approximately what I'd look like in an L.A. manga right now... procrastinating on my next haircut! (At this rate I might as well wait I get back to France...)

Follow me on twitter!

Follow me on twitter!

For a long time I thought my life was too interesting to be condensed in 140 character bites.

Then I got keyboard lazy... (Boy do you know how much you can actually do away from you keyboard... especially in L.A.!!! :>>)

Anyways, if you're into that kind of thing, follow me on twitter!
