panties & bluetooth

2006-11-30 21:10:57.464305+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Two nipped from elsewhere:

Over at Pursed Lips, Debra pointed out that in this photocollage of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and what they carry, the only guy smiling is the one with a pair of his wife's panties in a bag. Here's the article that goes with it, and over at Eros Blog's (acknowledged) poach of the link they found a direct link to the photo. However, I think the statement of the picture is much more powerful in the context of the rest of the pictures.

And Violet Blue pointed out a Bluetooth enabled vibrator that responds to SMS messages. Since I like to be in a range where I can actually see and respond to my lover, and since SMS messages are so freakin' expensive and unreliable, I'm not an immediate fan, but if they offer up how to interface to it with another Bluetooth device...

And one I saw this morning that I've been pondering: Violet Blue rants about various things associated with being a "geek girl", and I can't do justice to it in a summary, but in the process she defends Xeni (of BoingBoing fame). I have to admit that while I don't question Violet Blue's hacker cred, though I might push back a little on "geek" 'cause I don't see her slinging much code, I've always seen Xeni as sort of a Jon Katz hanger-on to the scene, and this includes exposure to the "BoingBoing" magazine long before the net presence. Comments? Discussion? Someone willing to set me straight?

I only peripherally know the two women in question (which is to say I can count the number of their blog posts I've read on one hand), but I would say that while what I know of their creds (which, in all fairness, is mostly what I read in Violet's rant you linked to above) don't exactly match my personal definition of "geek", neither do I associate geekiness quite as closely with coding as it sounds like you do.
