I've just finished putting up this web site for the Japanese shugendō group I'm affiliated with.

If you, or someone you know, needs web design, development, management, etc., feel free to send 'em my way...

Hi, I got involved in Geeklist's Typhoon Haiyan Hackathon this past Monday morning as a result of reading the coverage in TechCrunch.

Since Monday morning, I floated an idea to put up an Ushahidi, which turned into a project, which resulted in a site which can (we think) address a request from the President's Communications, Development and Strategy Office. I delivered documentation on this last night to them, and am waiting to hear feedback.

In order to do a better job of managing the Twitter stream for the Ushahidi site, I installed a SwiftRiver v1.0 using the appropriate branch on github and following the documentation on the Ushahidi wiki. Everything's gone fine, modulo a couple of minor tweaks, but I'm unable to log into the site using the credentials "admin" and "password". I've tried a variety of things, up to and including poking different values into the "users" table in the database, but I can't get it to work.

Can anyone help? I notice that the login dialog requests an email address rather than a user name, but the default value for that doesn't work, nor do different values that I plugged in by hand from the MySQL command line.

This is completely blocking my ability to upgrade the data feeds on the Ushahidi. I've got an email out to Emmanuel, but haven't seen a reply so far. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Jim Mickle does a terrific job of reimagining Jorge Michel Grau's Somos Lo Que Hay. Not for the faint of heart.

The progression of the Rim fire into Yosemite National Park has been strong, steady, and scary, fueled by extra-arid conditions after an exceptionally dry winter in California. This map shows the growth particularly well, with each color representing the area burned each day.

Gosh, product placement. Terrific!

And Nestle's! The company that starved millions of children with their baby formula back in the 70s and 80s, and whose CEO thinks that water is just another product that everyone should pay for. Better still!

How's that "Don't be evil" thing working out for you, Google?
 
Breaking off a piece When you're the CEO of a company who knows how to have fun, even your candy bars are special. Here's A KitKat bar Larry Page is enjoying this evening to prove it. We have no idea if these will be available for us "normal" people, but you can bet we're trying to find out. And...

Story
Tagline
Live in The Future! It's starting Now!
Introduction
I'm a partner in twostones/Acme Dot Company, a design strategy atelier based in Santa Cruz, as well as Benevolent Despot for Life of Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow. People say I'm arrogant, but what do they know? Je parles le français (comme quelque espèce de vache espagnole, peut-être...); 日本語を下手に話せます。

My professional activities are multidisciplinary, including web design and development, iOS development, brand development and social media, as well content production (text and multimedia), video editing, motion graphics, and a variety of other things. I also have expertise in copyright, patent, trademark and other IP areas, specializing in open source compliance assessment and remediation.

I do photography and videography, have seen more horror movies than you have, attempt to improve my Japanese, make occasional stabs at cooking rāmen, love to travel, explore new subway systems whenever possible, and have a wide circle of friends, most of whom don't live within a thousand miles of me.

My "Shared Interest" Circles: ask to join for postings on these subjects:

• Computer Vision
• Horror Movies
• iOS Development
• Japanese (language/culture)
• Videography/Photography
• Web Design/Development
