Will this have a “net” effect? (Election ’08)

by David Colarusso - August 28th, 2008

So if you’re curious what’s been taking up my free time, here’s the answer–communityCOUNTS, both dot com and dot us. Dot com is my turnkey solution for small media outlets, and dot US is my attempt to change the way we interact with the presidential candidates. You’ll remember dot US from this great NPR interview. Now I’m trying to build up interest with the video below. Please, share it with your friends.

How to Navigate by the Sun

by David Colarusso - August 13th, 2008

For those of you interested in such things, “Yes” I will be finishing the relativity series. It’s just that the animation will take a little time, and I’ve had other priorities. Until then, however, enjoy this latest Explainer.

Now you can find out where you are even if you don’t have GPS. Learn how to find south along with your latitude and longitude using only a few household items. I should note, that in using the home-made quadrant cited, the precision of your findings will be rather low. Don’t worry, you’ll be within a few hundred miles. ;)

On Education is now Tilts at Windmills

by David Colarusso - August 11th, 2008

This September I will be attending Boston University full-time as a law student, and I expect this will effect the focus of my blogging. So I’ve decide to go with a more general name, settling on “Tilts at Windmills.” It seems to me this could have been the blog’s title all along. Of course, this means a URL change too. No longer am I blogging at “/edblog” from here out, it’s just “/blog”.

“Why law school?” you may ask. The short answer, “I think I can do more with the law.” Only time will tell if I’m right about that.

So be on the lookout for some wicked-cool legal postings, but don’t worry, I won’t forget my roots. I have a mile-long list of would-be Tabletop Explainer episodes, one of which should be produced this week. Unfortunately, it’s not the next in the relativity series. It’s a how to I plan on entering in a video competition. Heck, I have to pay for law school somehow.
