Steampunk, best described by what its NOT


I know I’ve posted a lot today, but there is so much awesomeness on the internets today that I can’t help it.  Besides, I’m frustrated with work.

Check out this amazing list of things that ARE NOT Steampunk.  If you don’t know what steampunk is, start here before you start googling.  I’d hate for you to mistake the epic-ness of the genuine article for some crap with a gear glued on it.  Thank you Xeraposa for posting this first and for helping to stop the madness.

Lessons from a Recovering Postdoc – Benchfly


Hi. My name’s Belle. And I’m a recovering postdoc.

Maybe you think it will never happen to you. You were a successful graduate student. You got along with your dissertation adviser and your committee members. Your project progressed, and when it was stalled, you had something else to work on. You worked, you published, you defended, and you moved to the postdoc position of your dreams.

Then one day–maybe three, six, nine months later–you wake up to find that the dream is a distant memory. You are tired, angry, bitter, depressed… You have turned into the disgruntledoc that you swore you’d never become.

Something to keep in mind this winter…  Thank you Benchfly

Every time I visit ThinkGeek I find myself saying “That is awesome!”. From the ‘all-edges brownie pan’ to working laser projected keyboards ThinkGeek has everything for the Nerd in your life.

What stories flow…?


 

I saw this photo of the day on NatGeo and it blew my mind.  I couldn’t ever stand it as a desktop background, but the sight of it immediately flooded my mind with creative story ideas.  The little splashes of orange and purple and red just leap out from the dull background.  Who is that old man?  Can he really ride a motorcycle?  What is in the bottle he is offering you?  Thoughts of maniacal prophets that speak change into your life and then disappear into the night now haunt  my thoughts.


Terrifying Biomimetic Robots


There’s a series of amazing REAL robots revealed in this article from WIRED.  Salamanders that swim and walk, Quadrapeds that can pick up and throw cinder blocks (not kidding).  Not to mention the (not terribly useful but cool looking) Queen of Blades contraption show above.  Go check it out, we need to be prepared for the impending robot uprising…


Shard Seeker on the ‘Archive’ Blog


sn-largeststructure

Back in January I started posting bite sized pieces of a short story entitled ‘Shard Seeker’.  I just uploaded the compiled story to my other Blog for your reading pleasure:

A shard seeker on the frontier of space is haunted by her past and hounded by her employer.  Will her wits and skills be enough to strike a deal that will put her back into space and onto the trail of what was lost?

Read ‘The Shard Seeker’ and find out.
