Syzygy and Rauschenberg as Syntax
Posted January 30th, 2014 @ 8:19 pm EST

Yesterday a new client played a jazz song for me called Syzygy with a pianist named Kirkland who he admired. He was trying to communicate the kind of jagged, improvised sentences he likes to write. Short. Long. Short. Duhduh. Boom. It was awesome. The mom...   »

Tiny Start
Posted September 30th, 2013 @ 12:01 am EST

As mentioned in earlier posts, I have followed 99u.com and its culture for the last six months. From Mark McGuinness's post today, I discovered a wisdom nugget on creative tinkering in the pull quote (a rarity in the mid-page white space for bold font):"B...   »

Niche Writer or Pigeonholed Scribe?
Posted September 8th, 2009 @ 2:17 pm EST

I'm dumbfounded by my colleagues who boast of specialties in their bios, like being a sexpert dating columnist or know-it-all on all-things-tall, which make them levitate on a page, namely above me. I've had a fear, an unfounded one, about being pigeonhol...   »

I've chased this story for years. Whenever I would bring up algae biofuel with an editor, they'd cock their head to the side and give me an are-you-off-your-rocker glance. "Algae makes oil?" Indeed, it does. I'm thrilled that I could finally write about i...   »
