Reason Why Gays Smoke So Much Comments Off
You know, I always thought the reason so many gay men smoked was the same reason so many heterosexual females smoked. Turns out I was both right and wrong, in that both groups smoke for a similar reason, but not the one I was thinking of.
Digg vs. Slashdot (or, traffic vs. influence) Comments Off
There’s been lots of talk on the web lately about Digg being the new Slashdot. Two months ago, a Digg reader noted that according to Alexa, Digg’s traffic was catching up to that of Slashdot, even though Slashdot has been around for several years and Digg

Welkom Steven! Comments Off
Not only do we get one of the world’s bryght-est Drupal guys, the Bryght team gets the incomparable benefit of another culture and language. Awesome! Really looking forward to working directly with Steven and hanging with him in the Bryght office and
How to DJ your first set without knowing how Comments Off
I was asked to DJ a one-hour set, though I had no previous DJ experience. I didn’t know how to beatmatch, transition smoothly, use Ableton or Traktor, and neither do you. You just have to be comfortable with being a laptop DJ.
Maxwell’s Demon Comments Off
The analogy came to me while trying to write a bio for the Bryght Team page. I described myself as a stand-in for Maxwell’s demon, and since this particular demon has not as far as I know made an appearance on Buffy, I feel obligated to explain.

Style Profiles – Kris Krug, One Cool Geek Comments Off
What stands out about him is that he shatters the stereotype about Vancouver people, and about geeks fixated on the nerd box: heâ€™s extroverted and friendly to strangers, making even a banal elevator ride into a party. Not one to leave anyone out, his co
Vancouver Sculpture Biennale (Contest/Community) Comments Off
Vancouver is now home to a fine art sculpture biennale featuring top artists from around the world. The pieces will be up for 2 years (biennale), and what makes this display unique is that they are all public access, all the time (most biennales are a mix of gallery-bound and public land installations).
This is great news for those of us who like to shoot… We’re talking about world-class art in one of the most beautiful settings in the world, and we’re encouraged to take photos (instead of surrendering our gear to security). That said, I task you with finding the interesting angles, interesting light, framing the pieces or finding a beautiful detail.
Take your dog for a walk, make a date out of it, bring your glass (camera) and have some fun. Tour them all or focus on one or two. Post your photos with the tag ‘vancouverbiennale’ and collaborate with us. We’ll be trolling around with an eye out for the most interesting photos – and some prizes in hand.
Submit your shots to this group and we’d love to post your images up on the website with a photo credit (either add a creative commons license or we’ll email you with a request). The BURNKIT team donated the site design and we’d love to have as many excellent photos up as possible (and I’m excited to see your brilliance in action).
Enough chatter – get out there, experience some fine art and bring your camera.
PostScript- More on prizes and prize frequency in the discussion forum. (At the moment we’ve got free passes to the Vancouver Art Gallery, and it looks like we’ll be getting other interesting prizes too.) Also, look for us in 24 Hours newspaper, we’re going to publish selected photos w/credits… But we know it’s not just about the prizes either
