Over the last few weeks, at odd hours, I was thinking of a few things that I couldn’t quite categorize into a blog post, but wanted to get out of my head. SO I think 2010 will be the year that I begin a subcategory of Miscellaneous called Math.Random(). These will probably contain design-related thoughts, questions and micro-rants, as well as images of products, signage and brands that I felt were worth mentioning, but not weighty enough to merit their own post. Get a Tumblr, I’m sure you’re saying. And, you’re probably right. I have a Posterous (now defunct) account as well as a FFFFound (also defunct) and Dropular (yep, defunct as well) account, but I just can’t see myself committing enough time to using them regularly. I’m sure, others find them useful, but to me, it’s just one more thing. Y’know? Anyway, on with it.
Now I did fairly decent at math in high school and college. Senior year of PNHS, I dropped out of calculus to start a TV show for my activity period, rather than carry the ones and distribute irrational numbers. Since then, I keep wondering what sort of amazing magic I could’ve learned had I actually sat through Pete Jarrod’s lectures. In my mind, calculus could teach me to build coral castles and geodesic domes.Thanks for the link, Zé.
