SO I have a new blog now, and it is called Smallcano! It will be much of the same as was here, except probably more awesomeness.

Anyway, update your links/bookmarks accordingly if you like. And follow me on Twitter!

I've been studying a lot lately, so not too much going on, well, anywhere.

That Secret That You Know

Sorry about the not posting, it's not so much I'm busy as that I'm swamped. Anyway, I've been working on ianhenrysmith.com doing a lot of work on the blog section of the site. Here's a blog that I have to produce for my 'Writing on Science and Society' class, a lot of the layout is very similar what the new site will be like.

I have a Twitter now and would be happy to follow you; I like Twitter much more than Facebook/MySpace probably for the sole fact that Shaq is hilarious.

Women of Kibera

One of my more favorite street artists, JR, just completely blew me away with his latest project. From Wooster Collective:
"Today, after more than a year of planning, 2000 square meters of rooftops have been covered with photos of the eyes and faces of the women of Kibera. The material used is water resistant so that the photo itself will protect the fragile houses in the heavy rain season. The train that passes on this line through Kibera at least twice a day has also been covered with eyes from the women that live below it. With the eyes on the train, the bottom half of the their faces have be pasted on corrugated sheets on the slope that leads down from the tracks to the rooftops. The idea being that for the split second the train passes, their eyes will match their smiles and their faces will be complete."

Kibera is one of the largest slums in the world, and it's filled with marginalized, forgotten people. I love JR's idea, and his execution is profound:

Some unrelated notes:
  • I've been working on the Wordpress layout for the 'blog' section of ianhenrysmith.com, but it still needs much love.

  • School and life in general have sidetracked my discretionary projects, but I think that's okay.

  • I replaced my default icons with ones from Wall-E, and they are very fun.

The Pipeline

  1. Sorry I've neglected to post, well, anything in the last two weeks.
  2. I have lots of things in the works, including:
    • Posters!
    • An actual website (Ianhenrysmith.com)
    • Pie Charts, and more visual aids for navigating life
    • A clothing line (okay, that one was a lie)
  3. This blog has some big plans regarding said domain (goodbye Blogspot, hello Wordpress), although said plans will take a buncha time.
  4. There are a bunch of great albums out/coming soon; they include:
    • Dear Science, by TV on the Radio
    • Blood Bank, by Bon Iver
    • Merriweather Post Pavilion, by Animal Collective
    • Noble Beast, by Andrew Bird
  5. I am totally digging Dallas Clayton's poems/illustrations, so:

I Feel Like I'm Everywhere

I've just finished primary work on my website! It took a big chunk o' time but it's now here, and I'm even half-satisfied with it. I've only seen it in Firefox 3.0 and Internet Explorer 8, I shudder to think what my baby would look like in an old browser. Probably like the surface of Europa.

Anyway, besides being a platform for my Ponzi Schemes, it is a place you should check out.
