I made a little interactive environment (~5MB) using the shockwave exporter on maya. There is an avatar of me in the world. When you find it, it hides twice. After the last time, it speaks and becomes a link to my journal.

Total Words

Now that i have reorganzied the way that the toal number of words per user is calculated, I can make quick calculations for the site. So on the home page (e:info) you can now find total words for the site listed in the site statistics. We are almost at 1,000,000 words written - 940,728 to be exact. I guess these words will get added to that. We should definately have a 1,000,000 words party. I remember when we celebrated 1,000,000 letters!

Morning Banter and Radio Issues

Would anyone like to host a radio show? You could send us the show on CD or we could arrange to host it live. Just IM me "paulsidekick" if you are interested.

Is there anyone who would like to be sending pictures from their phone-cam to their journals but doesn't know how. If so, feel free to IM me about that to.

So I have about 10 site projects going on and I can't decide whch ones to focus on anymore. I would tell you all about them but then I would have to kill all of you as they are top secret, hahaha.

Today my students are going to end up putting their 3D models into some web interactive format. I wish Canisius would buy at least one adequate PC for school because so many things are not possible on a mac. Not that macs are that bad, and it is getting better all the time, but one functional PC with a decent graphics card is not asking to much.

Thank bob for kimgod. I purposely mixed that up. I love kimbob, even the cheap cafteria stuff. Who would have thought that ham and sushi could be one. I actually makes me question bacon wrapped sushi? Now that would be a fusion kitchen extravaganza.

This will be the last time I talk about the tos. Mike, I was not censoring his childish comments. I have never censored anything accept for one incedent where a woman from florida signed up for an account and started posting hardcore lesbian porn and sending hate mail to people.

With ed's comments, I was enforcing the tos which said that peeps could not use the services without agreeing to the tos. The chat is included as an eservice. I left the second one that he posted before I had time to change the code to not accept chatter from non tos-accepting peeps, because I figured someone would accuse me of censoring it. I am still very angry that he never contacted me or even asked about it.

This topic is irritating me beyond belief. If you want to ditch out and have donation back because your vision of the site has been crushed than fine, just ask. If you and ed want to go back to participating and being invloved in the community I think that would be great too.

Either way, I am 100% no longer interested in the issue and I don't have time for it anymore. While you all just come here to write and play, I also work here. I put in about 8 hours a day helping new people, working on code, dealing with the server admin, etc. I would like to go back to spending my time on devlopment for the many appreciative epeeps instead of wasting time time on one angry epeep and his sidekick. I will no longer be writing about the tos unless there are updates.

PHP PErl Rosetta Stone

For those of you working in PHP or Perl and wanting to try out the other, I found this handy dandy rosetta stone. It got me started so that I could write an aim bot following (e:ajay) 's footsteps.

Art, theft, or garbage

I wish I had brought a better camera with me but I only had the 'kick with me. This futuristic looking robot/installation artwork/sign of the times is located on Grenway, that little alley street behind wilson farm's between auburn and breckenridge. That whole alley is such a strange place. It just doesn't fit in right, but I love it.

So the question is who rolled this really nice looking television here in a shopping cart and what was their intention - art, garbage, theft?

Quote from Rheingold Book

Rheingold asked Mark Smith, another internet / network philosopher, What do people gain from virtual communities that keeps them sharing information with people they might never meet face to face?

his answer: Social network capital, knowledge capital, and communion -- people can put a little of what they know and how they feel into an online network and draw out larger amounts of knowledge and opportunities for sociability than they put in."

This is so in tune with our site and other online communities. However, it is not quite so with the globalized internet. When the internet made the shift from usenets and listservs to a "google front end." The need to contribute in order to take was reduced and in essence no longer exists.

I mean for some people it is still there. For example, as a collective we have contributed to the greater exposure and historical recording of life on the elmwoodstrip. However, others just visit google and take without ever contributing. It's kind of scary when people lose touch with the fact that everyone can contribute to the network. If we leave things up to the "experts" we have a situation in which things can be controlled and history re-written.

I wonder if most people even realize how information arrives on the internet or that the 'net is not a place in Washington DC where everything is kept - like the library of congress.

On another note, did anyone read the news today criticizing google for bowing down to chinese censorship. The chinese news source that is powered by google now censors articles and news sources that are hostile to the gov't!! This just proves that censhorsip routines have been written into the google code.
