No Bono? No bueno.

This made me laugh.

Also, my voice is one of those in the collective, "Aw!" from the crowd upon hearing that Pruned suffered a massive hard disk crash that claimed nearly everything.

Oops, I lost my admin password again.

And this pic is just DOPE. How beautiful.

Mmmm, it does go well with the chicken again, Phil.

So, I started a account, for those who might be interested. I also added the code here for my cloud, as you can see down the right side.

I feel that my cloud is already suffering from some of the effects of these open tagging systems, but I will attempt to maintain control. We'll see, er, you'll see how it goes, I guess.

Maps, sketches, ...

My "Personal DNA Map" (via PersonalDNA). Mouse over the color bars to see the dimensions of personality they measure. Not clear why they use "DNA" in their title, though.

A very interesting use of Flash to lead you through the questions. I liked the use of the n-dimensional types of questions and how the controls were implemented. Try it - it's fun!

Some interesting sketches.

Cell phone jackassery

I was simply trying to eat a cupcake and read interesting stuff when the guy next to me uses the phrase, "I'll just Mapquest that bad-boy" and ends his call with, "whatever's clever, man!" Congratulations, Saturday's Douchebag of the Day! We love ya.

In spite of that guy, however, there is some really great stuff here. I am trying to learn proce55ing!

There are so many things that I would describe as having this attribute. Here is a nice collection. What are the "collections" in your own life?
