01-29-02 The benefits of Compute Against Cancer are twofold. Researchers affiliated with participant organizations gain access to a massive computing platform, empowering vital cancer research. And cancer organizations receive additional funding without reaching into their supporters' pocketbooks. Launched in July 2000, Compute Against Cancer is the first philanthropic computing effort spanning research in cancer prevention, treatment, cure, and support. Cancer researchers affiliated with many different organizations and areas of cancer study are accelerating discovery with access to unprecedented computing power.

01-28-02 TechTV Labs has given high marks to Plextor for creating CD recorders that are not only fast, but also reliable and compatible with the widest range of authoring software. Plextor's new PlexWriter 40/12/40A ($209) offers the fastest disk-recording abilities we have ever seen, but the availability of blank media capable of supporting the "fastest recorder ever" may initially limit its potential. The four-minute burn: A record shattered Until now, the fastest recorders we have tested couldn't fill a standard 74-minute CD in less than four minutes. The 24X burners we've seen came closest. TDK demonstrated a 32X recorder at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that should break the four-minute mark, but we have yet to get one into our Labs.

Plextor decided to bypass 32X speed and move straight to 40X, a decision that requires reformulated blank media guaranteed to function at extreme recording speeds. A year ago, 16X recorders were king and we had no problems recording at full speed using 12X rated media (or lower). At 40X recording speeds, blank media becomes a serious issue.

01-23-02 www.customatix.com
When I was a kid, I used to wear Zips. They came in the coolest of colors with all sorts of designs. Nowadays, I can't find anything close to their supremacy. So when I checked out www.customatix.com <http://www.customatix.com/>, I was ecstatic to see that I could design my own shoes and have them shipped to my doorstep. So I went to work. I created the most obnoxious pair of tennis shoes possible, with pink and navy blue lining. You can influence the design on practically every inch of your shoe, from adding a devil on the tongue to having silver shoelaces. I wonder if gangs will catch on to this. Pretty soon kids will have to wear specific shoes to school that aren't "gang-related."
When the shoes arrived, everyone was pretty much speechless because they were so ridiculous. But they are mine, designed by me, just for me. The cost wasn't too bad, $85, considering most Nike and Adidas shoes sell for the same amount on the market today. Nike has even tried to get in on the act with custom id shoes. The problem is, Nike doesn't want their logo seen on pink and navy blue shoes, so the choices are much more restricted. I think my next pair is going to be green and red.
You know, they always say you can judge someone by the shoes they are wearing.

Making a New Year's Resolution

It's hard not to get the resolution urge on New Year's Eve. There's that sense of renewal, of rebirth, and the guilty awareness that you ate your own weight in chocolate during the holidays. Sure, last year's resolutions didn't make it past the fifth of January, but hey, this year's going to be different, right?

First Chips and Dips

Hands down, the best week of 2001. Thick with quality sites top to bottom, this week probably set more bookmarks than any other week in recent memory. It led off with the then just-underway 1000 Journals Project, an idea that now makes for fascinating browsing. Also featured on this glorious week -- Song Fight!, the place for amateur songsmiths to make their case; Pseudo Dictionary, a language lover's dream; and On the Rail, a behind the scenes look at the food-service biz. The shining star of this week was Taquitos.net, an extensive news and reviews site for every type of chip imaginable. This crunch-tastic site was assuredly one of 2001's best. Speaking of which...

They tell you where to go, what to do, and why you should do it. And despite their ubiquity, the signs that make up a good part of the American landscape are usually met with no more than a passing glance. Aiming his camera straight at good old-fashioned signage of all shapes and sizes, Philip Chmiel provides a glimpse into the underappreciated art of signs. From gaudy neon relics of the '50s to the garish paintings of today, signs surround us. By browsing through this intriguing collection of photos, you might just learn a little bit about good sign design.

D. Gorton

is from the Delta of Mississippi, have a son who is a Marine Lt. and LAV commander at Firebase Rhino, and another son who is with the 82nd Airborne (1/504th) at Fort Bragg, and am married to a college professor
He has been invovled wit serveral album covers including Patty Loveless. "The picture of Patty Loveless was made this past spring near Stone, Kentucky. Sony Music had called me because Patty was putting together music that sprang from her "roots" as a child of a coal miner in eastern Kentucky. Rather than a slick presentation, of her music or her image, they wanted the work to actually reflect the land where Patty had grown up. They called me because that's what I do." D. Gorton said. "Most of my work portrays people against the background of an ordinary life, but in an extraordinary moment. That's the power of still photography: to isolate that moment so that it stands for more than just one person's experience." Said D. Gorton. He is also interested in the loss of population in the middle of America; the small towns and farms that have disappeared. "It is from the countryside that so much of the brilliance of American culture was formed. The great writers, thinkers, musicians, and even captains of industry were nurtured by the love and values of the American countryside." And it shows in his work! Beautiful crafted pictures from around the country. At first glance you can hear the music, stare at it for awhile and you will be ready to jump in. See the site!

Forget what you've heard about pearls starting as a grain of sand in an oyster -- this site delivers the real dirt on pearls. It's more likely that a stray food particle will cause a mollusk to create those lustrous gems. People can artificially start this process in mollusks, which is how cultured pearls are created. While many societies from ancient times to the modern day have adored pearls, some prefer the mollusk shell's mother of pearl. No matter what your preference, this pearl of a site will shed new light on these glossy jewels.

A More Perfect Union

Through historic photos, first-person accounts, music, and text, this Smithsonian site immerses you in the world of Japanese-Americans from late 19th-century immigration through the injustices of World War II and beyond. The harsh conditions in the internment camps and the artwork created by internees are carefully documented. The sections on the 100th/442nd segregated military units are especially heart-wrenching -- these battalions suffered huge losses, yet were some of the most decorated U.S. military units ever. The final sections on postwar justice and Japanese-Americans today are an inspiring triumph over a dark era in American history.

American Roots Music

PBS consistently produces outstanding companion web sites to accompany its TV programs, and this thoughtful exploration into the roots of American music continues in that tradition. Interviews with roots music pioneers -- Bela Fleck, Buddy Guy, Willie Nelson, and B.B. King, to name a few -- provide insight into how roots music started in America. Eternal Songs offers detailed descriptions of key songs that reflect the American experience, while The Songs & The Artists section lists the songs heard on the TV series and gives biographical information on the musicians who've been essential in the development of the genre.

Dream Catcher

Have you ever had a dream so intricate and intense you couldn't believe your own twisted mind? Have you jolted awake from a night of "mental gymnastics" and thought, What the...? Well, here's your chance to make a public spectacle of your most private thoughts. While there's a blog for just about every self-absorbed topic, this is one where self-absorption works. Why? Think of it's as fantasy quid pro quo -- collective unconscious therapy. You spill your intimate details while you crawl into the heads and dream journals of others. In the process, you'll find that other folks are just as whacked in the head as you.
