Here's a funny one from my past. The pic was taken sometime in the 1970s. I used to ski at this place almost every winter weekend, and during March Break. I was also a huge Trek fan, back when there was only one Trek, and maybe the cartoon. So here's my childhood attempt to add... Continue Reading →

Star Wars according to a 3 year old. I recently watched the original Star Wars (1977, enhanced edition) for the umpteenth time and was struck by two things--first how groundbreaking it was and, second, how some of the inside sets/scenes seemed to be influenced by Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and to some degree Roddenberry's Star...

Remember Sargon? He was that disembodied consciousness in Star Trek who resided in a glowing orb and decided to enter into Kirk's body. Well, now it looks like our very thoughts can influence a video game... http://technology.sympatico.msn.cbc.ca/Mind+games+headset+lets+brain+control+action+firm+says/News/ContentPosting.aspx?isfa=1&newsitemid=headset-control&feedname=CBC-TECH-SCIENCE&show=False&number=0&showbyline=True&subtitle=&detect=&abc=abc&date=True Call me "old school" if you like.
