This definitely belongs to the “I Choose And Personalise My Self-Representations Therefore I Am” category. Can anyone translate that to Latin for me so it sounds more philosophical, please?

where I've been in the world

Yesterday Scott suggested I’d have done well as one of those colonial ladies a hundred or a hundred and fifty years ago who travelled the world in white hats and long skirts, drank gin and tonics in Arabia, India and Kuala Lumpur (I’ve done the latter) and wrote elegant books about their adventures. I’m surprised the idea never occurred to me, actually, because wow, that sounds like a wonderful life.

I want to go to California. And Cuba. And Moscow. And back to Uluru and Tokyo and Rome.

    I just wanted to let you know that I cant write comments from my Mac os9, somehow the “link-hand” wont show on the “comments”.

Looks great, although I personally always preferred imagining the ways and distances I have already covered in my life as strings of light, crossing and intertwining themselves with the strings of other persons, clogging together to bright, shining centers at the focal places of my life … Probably too difficult to make a computer display all these paths, not to speak of my own difficulties in remembering them …

    Oh, what a beautiful image! IndyJunior does something a LITTLE more like that – look at Peter Merholz’s map, for instance, and you’ll see the lines cross each other rather nicely.

    Alina, I have no idea why it doesn’t work in OS 9… Sorry. Perhaps it’s because of the popup window business, which I’m planning to remove anyway.

    Cecilie, you might like blogdsgn.com. There are some links in my Blogs technical category, and this year’s HUIN105 students have been discussing blog design a lot the last week or so.

    Are you open to suggestions?

    If so, take my word for it; Budapest and Krakow are both places you _need_ to visit…

    Seligo et consigno proprias imagines ergo sum… (There is a little Rene in all of us.)

    Fly through the sky
    Got to plan a trip to Leeds in July, a.s.a.p. (off to this conference). Maybe this will motivate me: places…

    On the Road Again
    So, since everyone else is doing it, I thought I’d do the “States I’ve Visited” map. Like most other people, I’ve avoided including states where I’ve only had a layover in the airport. More confusing are those states I don’t…
