Path (my company!)
Most of the Time
American history around the time of the Revolution, figuring out how to marry top-down task-based information architecture processes with bottom-up document-based ones, finding a good dentist in
San Francisco Oakland
the user experience (interaction design, information architecture, user
research, etc.), cognitive science, ice cream, films and film theory,
girls, commuter bicycling, coffee, travel, theoretical physics for laypeople,
single malt scotch, fresh salmon nigiri, hanging out, comics formalism,
applied complexity theory, Krispy Kreme donuts.
to see where I wander.

Caleb John Clark has posted "Space Available", a photo essay of San Francisco after the Web boom. It's a pleasant rumination on the state of this city, told with much affection by a former resident.

too bad caleb didn't mention what all of those buildings under construction mean: see-through years are ahead.
see-throughs are vacant buildings that you can see through. the term was coined in houston's 1980s oil boom (and bust).
also of note, for those of us who grew up in silicon valley: there is a general rule of thumb that any company that builds new offices is bound to have a major downfall soon after. it happened (long ago) to apple, borland, novell, and a few other now-dead companies. here we can now add organic, macromedia, listen.com, modem media, et al.
funny how some things never change.
