i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
9:56 PM: stay hungry, stay foolish
so i finally got tired of having to guess when my mail would be available and asked the wise & benevolent mph to set me up on his domain, which so far has been running smoothly, if slowly, and if i'm lucky, nothing will look any different. but it's eaten up my whole day.
steve jobs gave a speech at the stanford graduation ceremony i would have loved to have attended, in part because he cites the calligraphy classes at reed college as having helped inspire the mac! "i learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. it was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating."
oh, i think that was the sound of my heart just melting...! of course, perhaps this is the kind of speech that should be delivered to high school students rather than ones who have already graduated college...
