Like every journal/blog on the ‘net, some days, this one is about not much of anything. Other days, I post new artwork, various inspirations, exhibit invites, photos, web clippings, links and even VIDEO! My artwork currently relies heavily on handmade paper, oil stick, etc. Photos are not retouched, unless noted.
Photos and artwork are available for viewing @ galleries or you can check out my work at flickr or even more work (either art videos or really really silly video at my youtube site. ) I’m always up to something new it seems, and I keep a list of art related websites here. If you’re looking for my writings on web2.0 stuff, drop me a line. Please pardon the dust. I’m in between designs. I’m not sure when I’ll get updated.

Mirror blogging at ee and blogger
So, this is truly a test to see if I can mirror blog/auto post to 2 blogs at the same time (long reason for why I want to do this, which has nothing to do with spam—truly)
and a nice detail of the inprocess (getting very close to being finished though) Lucene (who is a tree nymph)

10weeks to a Web2.0 You Social Media Training Program
Well, it's official. The 10Weeks to a Web2.0 You Social Media Training Program kicks off today. Right now, this is just for library staff, but we are collecting up all of the training tools, presentations, etc. to create a website which anyone can use. I'm co-teaching blogging and then image editing (the fun stuff, right?) I thought about switching out blogging for moviemaking, too, but geez, I have enough going on, you know? For those of you attending the kickoff, there is food!
Join S.T.E.P. and WAG for the launch party of a new training series:
10 WEEKS TO A 2.0 YOU: SOCIAL MEDIA AND WEB 2.0 SKILLS TRAINING COURSE
On Wednesday, April 7, at 3:00 in the Administration conference room,
you can enjoy refreshments, get an overview of the program, and meet the instructors.
You've heard about Web 2.0 - you may even be using some of these applications in your personal computing time. But do you know…
…how to use Web 2.0 applications to increase your productivity and efficiency at work?
…how the UGA Libraries are already using some of this technology and you can get involved?
It is becoming increasingly important to know how to use these applications effectively and creatively in the work environment. To help you become more proficient, WAG and S.T.E.P. are offering a 10-session course about several of the most prominent uses of Web 2.0.
You can come to as many or as few of the sessions as you wish. However, participants who complete eight of the ten workshops will receive a certificate of completion of the program and will be entered in a prize drawing.
The sessions by week, are:
Be Productive with Google Documents
Sharing Your Message Online: Blogging & Tweeting
Get Updated with RSS
Flash, Bam, Alakazam!: Photos in a 2.0 World
You Oughta Be in Pictures: Digital film-making
The Web for Bookworms
Get Organized with 2.0 Tools
Where Did I See That Again?: Bookmarking tools
Don't Let That Wiki Be Tricky: Editing wikis
Podcasting: Discovering and Creating Podcasts
This training course will help you develop techniques for becoming a more productive and technology-savvy employee, so talk to your supervisor today about becoming a new, improved 2.0 You.
Semantic web, linked data, open data, virtual authority
For those that don't about this project, the general purpose is to provide NYT controlled vocabulary and RDF (under creative commons) for use across the web.
Very semantic webby… with one result the ability to pull together data from different sites, which meets a certain criteria (about the same person, etc.) In the example application, links to Wikipedia articles about a person are also cross referenced to NYT articles about the same person.
As Andy mentioned DBpedia is the shining example (which is a project to semanticize Wikipedia)
For those interested (and who don't already have these in their bookmarks or reader):

Also, this is an interesting site:
