    Things That Capture My Imagination
    29 Jun 2015 | 9:34 am
    Two years ago today, James Jorasch and I eloped to the roof of Science House. People living in the buildings around Science House saw us getting married and, in typical NYC style, cheered along with us from their windows. We had a dinner party that evening with a few good friends. Though we didn't plan it this way (we didn't plan at all, that's the beauty of eloping on a gorgeous, sunny day), that evening, the Empire State Building was illuminated with a rainbow to mark the stay on same-sex marriages being lifted. Millions of people were celebrating with us. Last night at midnight,…

    When I first heard about the cancer smart bomb created at Weizmann, it sounded like science fiction. Here’s the story: a man’s prostate tumor was exploded with chlorophyll and lasers in twenty minutes during an outpatient procedure. He experienced no side effects, and the tumor was urinated out. He wasn’t just in remission. He was cured. To celebrate, he went off biking for a week. As a Weizmann Advocate for Curiosity and a collaborator with the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science, I have been fortunate enough to get updated on the work of the institute’s…

    The Empire State Building can glow in 16 million different colors. Every night, when I go up to the roof, I can see it. Most of the time, it appears in classic white light, the way most people around the world imagine it. Last week, it was transformed in a dazzling way that did more than just hint at the full possibility of so many colors. The Empire State Building became an illuminated beacon to celebrate the new Whitney Museum with a light show featuring a dozen pieces of art from Rothko to Warhol and even the Super Mario Clouds by Cory Arcangel. Tonight, though, the familiar icon…

    I've always suspected that if there was a god, it had to scramble to make something up every time science advanced enough to look deeper into the nature of reality. It seems my suspicions may prove to be true:"Researchers working at the Australian National University (ANU) have conducted an experiment that helps bolster the ever-growing evidence surrounding the weird causal properties inherent in quantum theory. In short, they have shown that reality does not actually exist until it is measured – at atomic scales, at least. " From article on Gizmag.com.Regardless of whether that theory…

    18 May 2015 | 10:06 am

    16 Apr 2015 | 8:29 am
    Who puts words in a character's mouth? It seems simple, right? The author. But who puts the words in your mouth? Another self-evident answer? Not really. It seems like there's a single "you" inside who is responsible for all of your words, thoughts, feelings and actions. There is is obviously a single brain and body behind it all. But within that one system there are many identities, moods, desires and emotions that vary from hour to hour and from context to context. Some of them are fairly consistent, while others may vary wildly and even be in conflict with each other. Some are driven by…
  • Monthly Update on Novel

    20 Mar 2015 | 2:24 pm
    I'm about two-thirds through the novel, just getting to the climax of Act II. The plotting got complicated enough a few weeks ago that I created a spreadsheet to keep track of the flow of dates and events. Chapters had been alternating between 2100 and 2150 and I had to make sure that everything was lining up properly. I'm glad I checked. I was way off. I ended up moving all of the events from 2150 to 2115, which allowed the timelines to merge perfectly a few chapters ago. Whew!I've done two major rewrites so far. The first happened at the end of Act I when I realized that the secondary…

    It’s been about a month and a half since I wrote about starting a novel and reducing my online writing output. You might have noticed that I’ve been totally kicking ass on the second part, having only posted a few times since then. The novel part is going well too. I’m about 26,000 words in, spending about as much time editing prior material as adding new chapters. The main reason I spend so much time editing is that my iterative approach to creative work has extended into the longer form. The story has been unfolding in surprising ways. When something new emerges, it ripples back,…

    Hello FabFree Folks! If you haven’t already guessed: I love cats! So when I saw there was a Cats! Hunt, I knew I was going Hunting! First up, this is the “Cats Hunt”  dress from Get Frocked. I love the little black cats on the skirt and the back has a really unusual open design. It goes perfectly… or should I say ‘purrrrr fectly’ with my new tattoo from French Vintage Couture.  The “Cats” tattoo comes with two thigh sets of paw prints, one set for the spine and even a set for your face.  My necklace continues the paw print theme and adds a…

  • The Passing of 2 MMO Sims

    14 Jun 2015 | 10:50 pm
    Originally posted by mweatherwax at The Passing of 2 MMO SimsAlas, Venexia is no more. Goatswood will go away on June 19th, 2015. Venexia opened in 2011 and was a Venice-like city. Goatswood opened in 2012 and was a Victorian-era rural town. Both were stunningly beautiful builds with strong attention to detail and design by creators Baal Zobel and Kora Zenovka. While beautiful to explore, the primary function and mission of these builds was role-playing.Unfortunately, these Sims had experienced a steady decline in players and visitors over the last year. The tier fees, the diminishing number…

    1 Dec 2011 | 9:05 pm
    Just wanted to let any interested parties know that I've bought my own domain at http://ceejaywriter.com and am blogging via WordPress over there these days. I find myself less and less inclined to log into LJ these days (and it seems when I do, I always pick the day the system is down). The Second Lifers community here has dwindled to a gasp, as well.Feel free to follow me at my site, if you are so inclined! And LJ, thanks for all the fish. It was fun while it was fun! For the moment, my 'real' person keeps her LJ, but since my avatar-feelings are based in hers, she may be making a similar…

  • Why Corporate Training Fails

    masonm.designingdigitally
    29 Jun 2015 | 7:25 am
    The amount of capital spent by corporations on training their employees has risen steadily over the past decade. With the exception of 2008, the height of our Great Recession, companies have increased their corporate training budgets and per employee training allowance in each of the past ten years. Yet with all of the money spent training their workforce, very few organizations take the time to measure the actual effectiveness of their training programs. The success or failure of any corporate training effort can be measured by the increased productivity of the workers who receive the…
