As a follower of your blog for the past four years, I have to say that your new name is very fitting for the topics you cover.

Your explanation of why you dropped anthonynotes.com makes a lot of sense. This isn't a slice of life blog anymore, it's more of a topic blog.

Those Moments I Wish I Had Asked for Advice or Help – Chris Thilk

Digital Identities & Digital Citizenship: Houston, We Have a Problem | the theoryblog
Your post here has clarified some issues I've had in my creative life for the past few years. I've found the quantity of my creative output decreasing more and more lately. I consume way too much, and create way too little. Whenever I have a new project and I create a new online account on, Twitter, Medium, or a Facebook Page, I get more concerned about how that profile looks. In other words, the identity that it portrays. Which is completely silly, because I'm not doing the very thing that needs to be done--create content.

And then once this identity (or brand) is established, I'll absorb myself in consuming. Today's online services are designed such that we consume and consume, and there is no stop to consuming. On Facebook, there is an endless scroll--"Sure! I'll click and read more."

Liking content makes it way to easy to simply click a button instead of leaving a comment. These services put people in a box and confine them to view more and bring more ad dollars.

So back to how your post clarified some issues in my creative life. I've absorbed myself into these screens/boxes way too much, and not enough in the real space of simply creating.

(on a side-note, I discovered your blog by visiting Jon Udell's tool that collects together recent annotations made to a webpage on Hypothesis. Your post, "Six Key Selves of Networked Publics" had a bunch of recent annotations.)

QR Codes May or May Not Comeback, But the Idea Persists – Chris Thilk
I'd love--LOVE--to see Walgreens use QR codes on their receipts for the sweepstakes. Entering a 12-digit number into my browser to take survey is just ridiculous. With a QR code, it could take the user directly to a custom URL with the 12-digit number pre-entered.

Once You Start Fragmenting Content It Never Ends – Chris Thilk
I often wonder the same thoughts about my blogs. I started off with spudart.org in 2001. At work we started to dip our toes more into digital publishing and ebooks, so I started my own blog about digital publishing. My third blog is a baseball blog. And then a 4th is for christian topics. Perhaps I should keep all these topics on one site, my original one on spudart.org.

I do the same thing with my Twitter accounts, only worse. At one point I had about 12 active Twitter accounts (with dozens more that I rarely used).

Taking Notes Is a Two-Step Process – Chris Thilk
With notetaking, I'm a mixed bag. Sometimes I'll hand-write. Sometimes typing.

It's impressive that you type in your hand-written notes after a meeting. I try to have a separate area for action items while I'm taking notes, so those are captured at the moment. But how you write your action items afterwards allows for more digestion and time peculating time for creativity to come forth.

By doing these monthly comment round-ups, I've found a new routine. Once I post the monthly links, I click through on each link to see if the author of the blog post replied to my comment. In some cases, I miss a response from the author, so manually checking each link catches that oversight.

Loved and Hated, Old and New, Chicago’s Main Library Still Exudes Controversy | The Chicago Architecture Blog
Other design entries for the library included having the library built around the CTA station, so people could enter the library directly from the train. That would be so much better than having to go up the myriad of escalators just to get to the stacks.

Here's a hot tip. Enter the library on the backside of the west side of the building. There is an entry door there! And you get immediate access to the elevators! They recently changed the elevator policy where you can use those elevators from the first floor to any floor in the building.

Your guide to Taste of Chicago 2017 - Chicago Tribune
This listing is really nice. I'd like to see the Taste of Chicago release a menu of all the restaurant with the ticket prices for each food item. Right now I go to the Taste and scout out all the prices manually walking up and down the row. I'm less likely to go to the Taste every year, because I don't really want to spend the time manually scouting the prices. Would the Chicago Tribune be able to post the ticket prices for each food item? That would be a tremendous help. I imagine it would help encourage more people to come. Or at least the really crazy-detailed people like me.

Two Things Local Chicagoans Do That Tourists Don't Do - Chicago Elevated
Oh wow, what a great question. The things I'm thinking about are things Chicagoans AND tourists don't do. Well, at least most Chicagoans. I really enjoy picking one street in Chicago and walking it for miles. Or on the counter of that, start walking in one direction, and then you just follow the street lights. If you get to a red light, then you go left or right. The idea is continual walking non-stop. Although, both of these ideas aren't really Chicago-specific. You could do this in any town.

Let's see, chicago-specific ideas.
1) Walk around the second floor of the Walgreens inside the Wrigley Building. Awesome views!
2) Wander around the looming shelves and stacks at One Stop Comics in Oak Park.
3) Visit the insane fireworks display at Winnemac Park

Oh wait. I have one thing that Chicagoans do that tourists don't: go to Movies in the Park.
Or go to concerts at Millennium Park. Do tourists do the concerts there? I don't think they do. Although they would have to, right? It's right there in tourist-central.

jackson pollock postmodern paintings artist statement - ARTIST JOURNAL
Here's a promo by a certain art museum.
https://www.spudart.org/screenshot-2017-05-30-10-19-53/

I'm not certain that Jackson Pollock would have wanted his paintings to be used as a backdrop as part of a 20% off Memorial Day sale for an art museum.

At least yours uses paint directly on the surface that matches the paint in Pollock's painting.

This promo puts a 80% opacity hard-edged white square overlapping Pollock's painting. Almost to say, "yeah, this painting didn't really work with MY design, so i put this white square over the painting.

Starting up a one-line diary - Spudart
I've been doing a one-line diary since 2008. Before I picked up the one-line diary again this month, my most recent entries were from September last year--eight months ago!

My wife is part of the inspiration for me to continue the one-line diary. She recently started a tinybean journal. I really haven't explored tinybean too much yet, but on first glance it looks like a place to share quick memories. My one-line diary is like that! Only I keep it private to myself. With tinybean you can share your memories with a select group of people. Perhaps some of my one-line entries will make it into tinybean entries. :)

The Chicago Real Estate Local: One "Tasty" condo development coming to Oak Park (and a look at condo sales)
The houses in Oak Park are affordable? Perhaps compared to the hot areas in the city. Relative to other suburbs, Oak Park's homes are expensive and have VERY high taxes. I'm currently looking for a home in Oak Park, but I had to rule out Oak Park due to the high prices. Instead I'm looking in Elmhurst and Brookfield where the homes are more affordable and taxes more reasonable.

If people think Oak Park's homes are affordable, that's cool. I just didn't see it that way as I'm looking.
