TechShop, Photography Advice, Postsingular, NoDryClean, and Verizon FIOS Danger


Disparate thoughts from a very low ener­gy day. In fact, it was so low-ener­gy that I thought I post­ed this entry last night, and nev­er did.

I has a fever. Do Not Want. Blah. Can’t brain. Short atten­tion span means you just get links and such. Good links, but links.

Have you heard of TechShop? They describe them­selves as TechShop is a ful­ly-equipped open-access work­shop and cre­ative envi­ron­ment that lets you drop in any time and work on your own projects at your own pace. It is like a health club with tools and equip­ment instead of exer­cise equipment…or a Kinko’s for geeks.

I’d heard of them before, but look­ing at some pho­tos of just a lit­tle of the equip­ment makes me real­ly, real­ly want to see what Sam, Katie, and some of you oth­er cre­ative local geeks would do there. They’re open­ing loca­tions in some new states, but Atlanta isn’t on the list. Yet. Tell them you want a TechShop here! Or maybe one of you wants to actu­al­ly open one?

Every­thing Is Sub­ject and Kick­ing Off Your Shoes is the first of a series of arti­cles for pho­tog­ra­phers by Ben Lif­son. Even I even learned a few things, and I’m just a point-and-shoot girl.


For mah man: Rudy Ruck­er’s lat­est nov­el, Postsin­gu­lar, is avail­able for down­load on his web­site. You can buy it, of course, but you don’t have to unless you want a print­ed copy (Ama­zon is cheap­er than print­ing out the whole thing your­self). Ruck­er calls it psipunk.

Did you know that there’s a much safer alter­na­tive to dry-clean­ing? There is, and NoDryClean will help you find a place near you that does it. There aren’t many of them in metro Atlanta yet, but thank­ful­ly we sel­dom have a need for it.

If you live in an area served by Ver­i­zon, you might want to think twice before allow­ing that com­pa­ny or its con­trac­tors to install any­thing for you. FIOS means Fire Is Our Spe­cial­ty, accord­ing to Net­work World edi­tor Paul McNa­ma­ra.
