I'm moving this blog, and other materials, under my domain john-norris.net.
All the content will be available under that domain (not under radio.weblogs.com) in the next couple of weeks. I'll keep this blog and gallery intact under the "old-site" tab.
Sorry for any broken links this will cause.
Stay tuned for more Containers of Information!

Virtual Medical Informatics?
I've been spending a bit of time checking out the virtual world, Second Life and its possibilities for Medical Informatics. I think there is a lot that virtual worlds can bring to the practice of healthcare, things that go beyond the typical 2d environment. I'm starting to form some opinions of my own, but at this point I am mostly still exploring. (You can get another side of the story from Colin Fahrion someone in the know and whose opinion I very much respect and is my cousin!)
If you are interested, and would like to keep up with my travels in Second Life, I am using Snapzilla and putting up my SL Healthcare Tourist postcards there. Snapzilla is still very much beta. I can't seem to fix the text formatting at the moment.
I'm "Knoh Oh" in world. Feel free to IM me in-world.

You just gotta love this ol' gag!
I'll need to give that one a go myself sometime!

Pots for Creative Juices:
Lots of great ideas over at designboom's Ceramics for Breakfast competition. While many have that slipcasted/industrial design look, there is no reason one couldn't use them as a jumping off point for throwing or handbuilding.
Alice Mara's Hanging People Breakfast Bowl, would lift my spirits in the morning.

Vintage Pottery Vids on YouTube
Shoji Hamada Throws a few in B&W to some nice music. His hands and the pot. Meditative.
Michael Cardew Throws a few while talking about pots. B&W .

Just noticed you all coming in from AVWrites.
Feel free to snoop arond here, lots of free stuff.
However, I know most of you are here for my hPDA templates.
So have at them...most are covered by one sort of Creative Commons license or another.
Surfaces of Braille-
Ingrid Iilligren is doing some interesting surfaces. Her pots are covered in Braille- giving them decoration, texture, and direct meaning. I really like the larger plug style pieces such as Finding Home. Visually interesting, tactilely complex...and to those who can read it, directly meaningful.
This is an area that I have noted is ripe for exploration.
Thanks again to Ceramics Monthly.
