Woops! I can’t believe I forgot this one! I know I left out some stuff in that listing, but of all things I don’t know why this slipped my mind:

Umm…Mel Gibson?

My initial reaction was slight shock, followed by a general creeped out feeling. but the more I think about it, it’s kind of cool. In this photo it looks sort of decent. The rest I think it’s out of place. How often has Mel Gibson ever had facial hair?

This guy looks like Lance Henriksen from The Quick and the Dead or a Mad Hatter or something. Either that or an Australian version of The Butcher.

Free Geek!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on February 20, 2009 by blakejohnson

Alright…I just watched the redux on The League of Noble Peers documentary Steal This Film 2, as part of their campaign to help the three members of TPB during their current trial in Sweden, and not only did their talk about a new kind of internet connectivity and community and new ways of thinking about collaboration and community and a sort of technology/creativity-based utopia get me all geekishly excited but I just happened to stumble upon this site while looking for free packing supplies in my area (moving at the end of the month).  Yea, no big deal, but cool nonetheless, until I saw the righthand menu section.  “Upcoming Events”!?  “Learn”!?  CAN YOU SAY AWESOME!!  (How about GEEKTASTIC!?)  I got really excited when I saw the “Intro to Ubuntu GNU/Linux” coming up in March.  Definitely going to have to attend that one.  Except it’s full.  Damn.  Well it says there’ll be more in the future so I’m subscribin’ to ye ol’ newsletter then, see what I hear.

Oh yea, and their events are free, they’ve got an “earn a computer” program where you donate 24 hours of service to their organization and you get to adopt one of their aptly-named GeekBoxes (a Linux machine loaded with open source/free software), a computer thrift store (ooooh yeeess) and, under the ‘Free Geek Family’ section, ‘How to start a Free Geek!‘  Oh, and there’s a cluttered but kinda cool Wiki too.

Ooooh…this is going to be a long night of nerdgasms…

UPDATE: Check out the YouTube video below to see how the original Portland chapter got started.  Pretty freakin’ well-spoken 13-year-old, huh?

Mozilla Ubiquity

Ubiquity is a term I associate with the internet, however, after watching this video, I’m beginning to think it may become more manageable in the next few years.  Check it out.
