Post-California —

This is post-California trip, but I’m kind of still in California, so maybe I should say that statements made within this entry are forward-looking and are not meant to be predictions or assurances of future Jason locations. This weekend was all about the ANSI Gallery showing on Saturday the 12th, and to that level it […]

My Delicious Slaves —

One of the constant refrains of past consideration of what great things computers will do for us is the “smart agent”, a mythical delightful artificial intelligence that will cater to our every whim. In fact, this is the central thesis of Hyperland, one of those surreal film projects where you no longer have to wonder […]
