Deaf and Late

WARNING: This is a rant! Today, on a rare time I read the PD, I saw two items in the business section that got me hot. It wasn't about the writing or editing or dependence on newswire this time. It was on the typical bonehead myopia, squelch filter… more »

Small Publishing

01/25/08 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: Poetry, Economic Development
I have been planning for over a year to publish a book of the spontaneous poetry generated by the Literary Cafe (the original Lit, Big Lit, Tremont Lit, NOT the inferior Lit)* and I'm going to do it under the What's In the Bag Press. Then I saw this fr… more »

Communication is Possible Only Btwn Equals

Amazing how what is read in some novel seems to relate to another item found in a totally different context. I refer to yet another excerpt from the Illuminatus! Trilogy and supports a little blurb that Ed Morrison put up on BFD a couple of weeks ago.… more »

Idea Generation Thru the Ages

12/24/07 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: Economic Development, Social Networks
The wacky book, The Illuminatus! Trilogy, is of what if all the conspiracy theories were true and that a single entity was behind it all. Nutty stuff, but it is sci-fi so reality is suspended. Yet it has this nice passage about ideas. It is hard to ge… more »

Yeah, I've been going nuts during travel for indentured servitude. Makes me go into uncontrollable alliteration, but a bright note surprised me when I opened this month's flight magazine on my Continental plane ride to Maryland (got crabs---the good ki… more »

Hear My Poems, Buy a Rug

Also on Artwalk Nite (tho not part of artwalk), my dear friend Ujjin-la will be at Jewel Heart with his annual Tibetan Rug sale. I have always wanted to get one and now with my ratty hardwood floors in the new flat and my regular paycheck, I'm in the m… more »

What I Mean Open Source

04/26/07 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: WiFi, Cleveland, Economic Development, Geekism
Couple days ago, I ranted about the lack of open source requirements in the Cleveland Wifi RFP. I tried to explain to CTO Melodie Mayberry-Stewart in a conference call when she first presented to Cleveland Digital Vision. I don't think I did a good jo… more »

City Wide Cleveland Wifi RFP Out

04/24/07 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: WiFi, Cleveland, Political, Economic Development
One of the perk of being on the Cleveland Digital Vision Board is that I get at the moment notice of things like when the Cleveland Citywide Wifi RFP comes out. I got the heads up and it was released last Friday. I spent Saturday nite reviewing it and… more »

It Ain't that tough

Bill Callahan had me thinking about smart meters and what's stopping First Energy and CPP from doing it. I realized that this is not that tough and a little research popped up this beauty from out of "Da City" hometown NYC. Much like some of the res… more »
