Game: Feminist Art Genres

I love art. But my preference is for modern, abstract art. I’m not as big a fan of classical art. Mainly because it is an artistic manifestation of the patriarchy. It might not be as crude as Playboy, but the lens of the male gaze pervades. This art wasn’t made for me, because this art […]

What Does a Good Media Experience Look Like?

One of the things I wanted to do more of this year is explore photography. Sometimes I worry that creating a photo editing app and writing a book chapter about creating image filters sucked some of the joy from photography for me. I wanted to do more with my pictures for their own sake, rather than […]

Show & Hide: Free on the iOS App Store

I released Show & Hide nearly a year ago now and it’s now free on the app store. It’s not set the world alight, and I haven’t made the progress I wanted to on releasing the Android version (still in beta), but it’s got a few nice comments, and I’ve seen some beautiful photos. Here’s one of […]

Project: The Ultimate Selfie

The first time I came to Seattle and hung out at Glowforge I had no idea what I would make. It was somewhat revelatory to me to discover that making things wasn’t actually terrifying, and Dan and I made my Show & Hide necklace together (now my favourite accessory, as it represents so many things […]

Launching: Show & Hide

I launched a thing. You can buy it for your iThing. Please upvote it on ProductHunt. What is the thing? It’s an image processing app. It allows you to make cool, partially colored images. It’s called Show & Hide. The longer and more personal story is: this has been a long term side project for me, and […]

Lasers and Practical Skills

I first “met” Dan a year ago, right after GHC last year. He reached out to me because of the stuff I’d been writing about men and male allies. We became twitter friends, and so I got to read a preview of his book – which is great, because I’d realized that Dan was someone I […]

Berlin, March 2015

[slickr-flickr search=”sets” set=”72157651971644737″ align=”center”] I went back to Berlin to… tie up loose ends, I guess you could say. Mostly I worked and caught up with friends but I did have time for a little touristing in one of my favourite cities. Stayed at the Movenpick which was nice, and after discovering it was a twin […]

Oredev: Deconstructing Her

her

My notes from Chris Noessel‘s talk “Deconstructing Her” at Oredev. Movie is about a lovelorn fellow going through painful divorce at the same time he decides to upgrade his computer. Begins a relationship with the AI. Begins professionally, gets romantic. Try to consummate through a surrogate (awkward!) Eventually self-rapture to a new plane of existence. It’s […]

Romania, Nov-Dec 2014

[slickr-flickr search=”sets” set=”72157649871201681″ align=”center”] I went to Romania to Cluj, to speak at iOSNext. Being footloose and fancy free, I decided to stay on for a while after and see Bucharest, and try out AirBnB [referral link]. In Cluj, we stayed at the Golden Tulip hotel which was pretty nice. I arrived late and was […]

Copenhagen and Malmo

[slickr-flickr search=”sets” set=”72157646984090244″ align=”center”] Copenhagen It’s always nice to return to a city I liked a second time, once I’ve been somewhere twice I’m sure I’ll end up there again. Copenhagen was one of my first solo trips, that was just to see the city and not for work or some activity of some sort. […]
