Gliffy, the Online Visio Killer

Two guys with some time on their hands have created a tool that might just become a Visio-killer. Gliffy is a free diagramming tool that works entirely in your browser. Like other online apps, it has inherent advantages over traditional software. Collaboration is easier,and so is publishing diagrams you create to the web. read more

I'm back

1st day back from lovely Chitown did so much family stuff I hardly had time to see much of downtown Chicago. The weather was perfect a rarety for the midwest, lots of divided black and white folk no diversity, folks are on the larger side there. The diet is beserker, went to a drive through that had some sort of sandwich with shredded beef with melted cheese between the meat and the bun that wrapped it was deep fucking fried! I gained too much so now i'm on my Kate Moss diet. ok enough of the bs we jumped on one of those double decker buses and did a tour of Chicago that was pretty damn cool minus looking like a dork in a red double decker bus (again not a big deal when everyone looks like they do in that city). First place we went to was Mellinium Park you must see The Bean a giant metallic reflective bean shaped object about the size of a house. We then went to The Museum of Contemporary Art the collection was alright. Me tired more later.

Comedic performer Robert Newman

I’m embarrassed to say I’ve only just discovered Robert Newman. But am now an instant fan. Don’t bother to read this post, just watch his video . The most entertaining and illuminating 45 minutes you’ll spend since, well, since sex education class in high school. So what are you still reading for? Go download this Google video. The future of the world depends on it. Move over, you carbon-offsetting, multi-million dollar Syriana, The Day After Tomorrow, The Corporation, V For Vendetta, The Constant Gardener, and Michael Moore fests, etc. Here is the real deal. A comedic performer, who cycles to his local gigs, rides Amtrak for his US tour, runs his multi-media shows on pedal power, uses a solar powered ISP for his website. And he has something serious to say, in the most engaging, funny manner I’ve encountered. Are you doing still reading this? The video !

51 Things

Curated by Paul Johnson, the owner of Phurniture (one of New York' most lauded destinations for 20th century art and design) 51 Things collects some of the rarest and most significant furniture, lighting, sculptures and decorative objects from the past 60 years under one vacant Toronto warehouse roof. Opening next week on 7 June 2006 and running through 15 July 2006, the 51 pieces in the show include works by such luminaries as Frank Lloyd Wright, George Nelson, and Carlo Mollino, as well as items by lesser-known artists and designers like Dennis Byng, Joe D'Urso, and Paul Evans.
