I just saw The Social Network, so once again, my love/hate relationship with Facebook is on my mind (or more accurately, my modicum-of-interest/hate relationship with Facebook).
As an aside, The Social Network is a great movie. May or may not be entirely accurate, but if you’re an Aaron Sorkin fan (and who doesn’t love the West Wing), you’ll love it. The story it tell does give some insight into how Facebook got off the ground, with some caveats that the tale is told from a certain point of view. Not an entirely one-sided point of view, but all the facts may not be on display.
A Chasing After Wind is not just a short story collection; another story surrounds the telling of these stories. These contemporary stories walk the border between science fiction and fantasy, where moments of humor emerge from tragedies. Is this struggle in vain, a chasing after wind? Or does everyone deserve a second chance?
I am a web designer and developer with a passion for web standards, accessibility, usability, and information architecture. My toolbox includes hand-coding XHTML and CSS, Drupal, ColdFusion, and all things Adobe.
When my head is not in the web, I enjoy walks with my wife and dog through our lovely neighborhood (walks with our cat proved counterproductive), time with friends, traveling, reading, movies, fantasy and science fiction, Blu-Ray, a nice meal now and then, and all things iPhone.
If I were a flavor of ice cream, trust me, it would not be IE6.
