I have found that all the things in this blog entry map perfectly into how to write a good project paper in business.
Great post by Matt Welsh: "Don't make me read deep into the paper to understand what the hell you're doing and what the results were. It's not a Dan Brown novel -- there's no big surprise at the end ... [Nail] down what you're trying to accomplish ... spell out the goals and constraints ... motivate the work. ... Tell me why previous solutions don't work ... stand on the shoulders of giants, not their toes."

Yet another brilliant work by Jeff Brown. Like this is just seriously beautiful.
Here's a new wraparound book cover I have been working on. I was trying to do something somewhat original here with a ship design I have never seen before. I hope I succeeded! I had so much fun on this one, I would love to do more of these soon.

I do these for $650 ($450 for front cover, $200 extra for back cover)

Eldritch horrors? Sounds fun to me.
The chilling cosmic terror of the Cthulhu Mythos meets covert action and modern conspiracy. DELTA GREEN brings down the thunder at Kickstarter, with the core game long since unlocked and new resources and scenarios being unlocked almost every day.

Massive new sourcebooks are coming:

IMPOSSIBLE LANDSCAPES, a campaign against the King in Yellow.

CONTROL GROUP, a campaign of introductory scenarios.

DEEP STATE, a look at the secret organizations and companies that surround modern-day Delta Green.

And much more when we unlock those.

Back DELTA GREEN at Kickstarter. Get the Agent's Handbook, or the expanded Case Officer's Handbook if you plan to run a campaign yourself. Get THE FALL OF DELTA GREEN, a Gumshoe game by Kenneth Hite and Pelgrane Press. Get OPERATIONAL HISTORY and the HANDLER'S SCREEN. Collect all the adventures and other bonuses that backers have unlocked.

Download the quickstart kit -- rules, scenario, playable characters -- and start playing today.

The apocalypse is here. Let's face it together.

Seriously... Our officials need to rethink how they do this. We have a hard enough time teaching people, but when you find someone curious enough to build what is a fundamental part of how we operate (with respect to time), they should be rewarded.
This is making the rounds because it damn well should be.  Some real winners:

the school phoned police


Police say they may yet charge him with making a hoax bomb — though they acknowledge he told everyone who would listen that it’s a clock.

And, of course, 

He’s vowed never to take an invention to school again.

When I was little, one of the first songs I learned just by listening was Harry Chapin's "Flower's are Red" which is more or less about a stifling teacher crushing the creativity and enthusiasm out of a young kid.   It's a product of its time, and I admit these days I'm a lot less worried about general authority crushing kids, and more about the miasma of racism and sexism doing the job.
