Anyone have any suggestions/guidance on buying a Wacom-like drawing tablet? I'm looking for something to support general sketching with decent pressure sensitivity.

This is a really solid deck from a history/state of development perspective. It appears to assume some basic audience appreciation of the semantic web value prop; it's not a sales pitch for making the effort.

I've decided to only hunt zombies with old PC peripherals; they're easier to find and replace than arrows are.

Aberrations abound and the blur is unfortunate.  I may need to start making some of these in Photoshop instead of relying on this "one setting fits all" phone preset.

Nice. I need to see how hard it is to do this in PS.

Adding it because, really, this is how I spend my weekends now. The video is taken with my phone's self-facing camera; this is actually the hens' reaction video of seeing themselves on the phone.

Introduction
Professionally, I help build websites.  I work on the technology while remaining mindful of the user experience and business objectives.

I enjoy solutions that
  • are future-proof,
  • leverage existing efforts and assets, and
  • empower business users

I have a LAMP background, but these days I focus largely on client-side standards and technology (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AJAX patterns), and the cross-browser compatibility issues that go along with those.  Working with HTML5 and CSS3 elements excites me, but my production technology decisions are made based on user analytics.  I hope people upgrade to modern browsers, but heck, there are so many people stuck on IE7 and IE8 that I just can't stop talking to them.

Over the past decade I've had some great opportunities to work on web accessibility projects, primarily with companies looking to achieve simple 508 compliance, with the occasional dip into overseas regulatory standards and some of the newer work with WAI-ARIA.

What will I work on next?  Semantic web inferencing.  What better way to leverage past work and existing assets?

My wife stopped by there this morning to replace some missing parts for our daughter's bike. Not only did the folks at Goody's help her locate suitable replacement parts, they installed them for her on the spot, gave my daughter a lollipop, and then decided to gift the parts - no charge. I'll be making Goody's my first stop for hardware shopping from here on out.

Don't be fooled by the strip mall exterior. This restaurant could be picked up, moved to Manhattan's most competitive restaurant district, triple their prices, and still be successful. They truly present food as an experience rather than as just a meal.

This is a great little theater. Their selection includes a lot of indie films and documentaries, which is great. The theaters are a reasonable size, with comfortable seating. 'Insomnia Theater' and 'Movies and Mimosas' are fun entertainment options.

The only positive thing I have to say for the North Branford Abate's is that the employees were somewhat friendly. The service itself, the food, and the experience were extremely unfortunate. Multiple parts of the order were completely wrong; different-parts-of-the-menu-wrong, not just overcooked-wrong. When I received a salad instead of chicken, the waitress apologized profusely and then asked me what kind of dressing I would like. When I gave over a LivingSocial coupon, the waitress explained that my wife's order off of the Specials menu wouldn't be covered, though there was no even remotely-related exception mentioned on the coupon when I paid money for it. The whole experience is particularly unfortunate, because this is the closest restaurant to my house, and one of the only places that delivers to my address. What could have been my go-to place for spending pizza money is now on my very short 'Never Again' list. I bought two of the LivingSocial coupons, and I'd feel guilty even giving the second one to a friend.
