On the upside of gloomy. Or something.
Dreams—meaning lofty goals in life, not sleepy-time imaginings—are highly valued in our society. You don't have to look far to see social messages urging people to not give up on their dreams; indeed, we are urged to pursue our dreams with all our might. Broken dreams are seen as a bad thing. It is very common to have a dream to "write a book someday," and the annual NaNoWriMo event helps make that dream a reality for many people every year. But ...

Time to create another Collection, to give you the chance to "opt out" of certain content that I post. This collection will mostly be about my books and other writings, but may also be about my other creative works (photos, sounds, software, etc.). Unfollow this collection if none of that will ever interest you.

I created this Collection as a way to segregate out my posts about technology (in its various forms) and closely related things, in case you would like to opt out and not see those in your G+ info-river. I'm going to be working on categorizing my posts into Collections to make it easier for you to hone your experience on G+. I encourage you to do the same for those who follow you.

Kobo has been doing a lot of promotion lately, and this one will let you buy e-books at 50% off -- but only through the end of the month. This includes all of my books (you can search for my name to find them). Just go to the link provided in the blog post and do your search from there.

I give away a lot of my creative stuff for free, for various reasons. I have hundreds of free photos in the +morguefile archive, for example, and dozens of sounds on freesound.org. I always like to find out how these creations of mine are used by others in their creative projects. The video linked here is an example; I found out from +Applekations that one of my sounds was used in this song. You'll need to listen to the very end, it's the phone hang-up. (Adult language warning, for those who care.)

And a little busker-esque note.... If you'd like to support my creative efforts, Patreon offers a way to do that: http://www.patreon.com/crenel

Thanks to some sleep interruptions, I spent some time listening to the oh-so-refreshing rain and working on optimizing some things on my tablet, to minimize taps & swipes and streamline access to things that have felt clunky or bothersome in the past. I can now get short notes into Evernote even faster, open a terminal window on one of a couple commonly-used servers with a two taps, and more. Not a big deal, but it's always good to streamline and/or automate when possible.

Is your content tip-worthy? Is my content tip-worthy? I was checking out Tipworthy, from ChangeTip, and it got me thinking about tipping and, well, a lot more.

Anyway, Tipworthy is a way to suggest content that you think is worthy of tips and a way for people to find that content and, if desired, send a tip via ChangeTip. The content creator receives most of the tip and you get a percentage for submitting it. Naturally, you and the creator both need ChangeTip accounts for this all to work.

How would you like to get $5 and at the same time give $5 to your local indie bookstore? I'm not handing out fivers, but Kobo has a 100-day promotion called eRead Local, starting today, and they'll give you and your local indie bookstore each $5 if you participate. The bookstore gets $5 plain and simple, and you get $5 in Kobo credit. Check out the link here for all the details. And if you're not sure what books to buy with your $5 credit, I have a few ideas... :)

Malicious mischief, someone grabbing the low-hanging fruit "just because."  

Somewhat related--I really miss my old Popular Photography subscription.  I used to keep up on camera technology that way. Nowadays there is information online for just about everything, but I really liked having a familiar source.  And I never remember to check their site regularly.  

One thing I am hoping is that the new Nexus 5 phone later this year has a far better image sensor than my Nexus 4 (which is terrible).  The Samsungs have better cameras but I don't like the Touchwiz bloatware.

Very nice staff -- as in, they set the bar much higher for service to patients and their families. Everybody I've dealt with so far has been really pleasant, respectful, etc., and even when they've seemed a little rushed (as can happen in any setting like that) they still don't give off the "you're just a number" impression that is often seen in healthcare. This is the only healthcare provider where I've been thanked for allowing them to provide care -- it's a small touch, but it underscores that they take seriously the fact that we could go elsewhere. I'm pretty stingy with 5-star reviews but I think this one is honestly deserved.
