My sister came for a long weekend and this kept me busy during the work week (trying to free up my calendar for a work-free weekend (sad that I have to work on the weekend most weekends :( ), but awesome to see her, slow down, and enjoy what’s happily turning into an annual event.
I’m still trying to puzzle this one out, but it’s big, on a thoroughfare, and gets me wondering about all the visual design and composition stuff I’ve been working on with my ed tech class. Who’s the audience? What’s its purpose? Is it solely to provoke nerds? If I saw it, thought about it, snapped it, and blogged about it, does that make me a nerd? And if it does, what matters next? If I’m not offended, does it end? Most nerds I know are into their nerdiness, so I’m just lost. I need some other interpreters. Help!

Is it the same as the child who pretends that a bucket is a stool and a bristle block is a gun and a piece of paper is a skirt? Everything is an iPad or an iPhone. You’d think we were on them 24/7 (we’re not). Or perhaps they’re socially valuable markers of power and possibility. Another puzzle I’m working to unravel and would love to hear thoughts on…
