Balcony Anniversary Party

The first time I went to The Balcony cafe was on the night of the 1 year anniversary party. The 5 year anniversary party will be Saturday, March 30. I will be DJ'ing. If you have to ask where the cafe is you're probably not invited --hah!

Last time I DJ'ed was for the chinese anniversary party. The way I went about doing it was pretty different from other times and the result was good [I think.] I'm planning to add another experimental layer to what I have been doing. Working on it right now; to see what I'm talking about you'll just have to be there.

Extended Skin

truenames (5k image)Walking around yesterday pondering Marshall McLuhan's observation concerning non-verbal awareness of external objects (spurred by me not having the benefit of my car...) He pointed out that when we drive --our cars become part of the mental image we have of ourselves. Vernor Vinge extended this with his science fiction novel "True Names" --pointing out that the internet can be seen [in a very real sense] as an extension of the user's nervous system. The fact that he did this back in the days of the Arpanet is amazing. His book is back in print as part of a "collection of internet visionary tales". The complete text is also available at the fan site linked below. I don't read a lot of a science fiction. When I do it tends to be books that I read more that once. This will be one of those (as in I will be reading it again.) I can't recommend this book enough. Check it out.
