    Description: News for grown-ups — a source of controversy — humor/satire site + discussion board.
    Comments: "There are a number of people who have opinions that don't quite fit the norm. Because of this, they aren't welcome many places. This is where they exercise their right to speak, where the dreams of tomorrow take flight today."  That sounds serious enough as I began reading the "mission statement."  But as I continue, and finish reading the next paragrah, I'm thinking "they didn't really say that, did they?" and feeling a little twinge in my neck, I keep reading.  "Aah... they were kidding" are my thoughts now and I'm thinking that was a well written twist — I tell myself "that must be the humor that Em mentioned" and giggle, heading back to the "front page."  I'm thinking about how I edited the description that Em submitted — when I see phrases that begin with things like "the web's premier..." in a site description, I get a little skeptical right off the bat and as I'm thinking about this, I see that an editor of one the entries refers to the site as "the most controversial... on the Internet."  Yikes!  Here's two of the editors (from a pretty long list) that have already gone for what I call the "big promo" and all I've done so far is read the submitted description and one entry.  It's dawns on me that the people in this community are rather enthusiastic — who cares about the big promo, anyway (hehe)?  I like enthusiastic people who get together via sites like today's pick.  Being highly controversial is something they're striving for and that does make for some interesting reading.  There's a certain tongue-in-cheek tone to many of the stories, but I think there's tons of intelligent points being made through it all — plenty of good discussions (and polls) going on and I like the way that posts are organized into "diaries."  The "Adequacy Shop" is a real gas, too — check the "meta page" for the special stuff like that.  "News for Grown-ups" — okay — I'll buy that...
     
  • michael jang : photographer 10/17/01 
    Description: a pleasant surprise to most viewers of photographic websites (Flash)
    Comments: Michael Jang is obviously a professional, but his site seems more a showcase of his outstanding photography than it is a vehicle for promoting his business.  Sure — his "professional resume" with its impressive list of clients and celebrity photo subjects is a little on the business side of things, but since the extraordinairy content (and amount of it), beyond those shots he's taken professionally, is the prominent magic of the site and there are no sales pitches, list of services, etc., I'll consider it primarily non-commercial so you don't miss out on the magic.  I really like the photos and textual content of his piece about Cuba, and the gallery includes some interesting categories — cowboy, south, picnic, heroes, toxic, punk, premiere, jazz, and mix. Great photos and artistic presentation — this guy is good and his collaboration with artist/designer Jason Zada and several others has produced a real winner...

    Description: installations exploring experimental interaction with images, reactive electromechanical sculpture, high resolution digital prints, and screen-based interactive software
    Comments: Today's pick features the work of Casey Reas, a recent Masters graduate of the MIT Media Laboratory, Aesthetics & Computation Group.  His major was Media Arts and Sciences and his work is highly academic on one hand, while simply visually pleasing on the other hand.  His installations have been exhibited at a number of places, both offline and online — some of his most recent stuff is currently featured at singlecell, which just happens to have been a daily pick back in July.  Simple machines, living organisms, biological systems, synthetic neural systems, behavior, and movement are the types of things that Casey looks into rather deeply — great colorful graphics, showing interesting variations in form and space are what I see, pure and simple.  Art and science seem perfectly combined in Casey's unique studies of media...  Newstoday®]
