The iPhone in the keyboard is actually not a bad idea. Especially if it could be fully integrated for sync, working and tracking. It could also replace the silly Apple Magic Trackpad. It would require to be an Apple designed keyboard though and not a stupid sausage looking PC keyboard. Via designboom

I love, love, love my Magic Trackpad (battery sucker that it is) but can think of a whole host of additional ways this integration could work. From customized game info (Starcraft 2 players, any ideas?) to almost any widget that currently uses the dashboard, to a simple number pad, this could do an amazing number of very cool things.

But yeah, less PC keyboard, and more chicklets please.

Naturally, they don’t make a left-handed version. I’d buy if they did.


I’ve striven my whole life not to define myself by my autoimmune disease.  But when it’s kicked me in the ass over and again for nearly two decades, it’s kind of hard to ignore it.  It took me forever to grasp that acceptance is the most essential part of healing.  So I’m finally putting it all out there.  Am I scared?  Yes.  But I hope that this venture will help those who live every day in constant battle with their own bodies.  Like me. 

Really. It’s not.

Auto-immune diseases blow.


We’ve had a lot of long blog posts, and a lot of smart comments, but I find I’m most comfortable talking about what transmedia is or should be in more casual, conversational situations.

We’ve seen a lot of quality back-and-forth on Twitter… but at the same time, the need to tag all of the people you’re talking to combined with that famous 140-character limit makes it hard to be conversational and substantive. And it’s not likely we’re going to get all of the people who want a say in this to all sit down in a bar to hash it out, as much fun as that would be.

So I’m proposing we have an online chat on it (probably on IRC). Let’s all get together and air our points of view, and discuss gritty topics like authorial intent and how to measure a single story.
