  • Coffee Project:  I’m excited about the Ride Studio Cafe’s latest coffee project:  Single Origin Saturdays!  Starting next weekend – Saturday, December 29, the Studio will be employing Steven Lim’s Espresso Cart.  The Studio will offer the standard espresso fair – at the moment it’s Madcap – and they’ll also offer a special espresso for Saturday only.  This is an experiment that I’m confident will go well.  Get ready to be overcaffienated on SOS.
  • Clothing Design:  The Fall Five Champion jersey is complete.  I can’t post it until John Bayley picks up this one-off jersey; I don’t want to spoil the surprise.  It’s beautiful.  It’s almost makes me want to complete for champion for the next “five” but that’s not gonna happen.
  • Travel:  Looks like my first trip of the new year will take me to London, Belgium, and maybe France.  Soon after to China for the briefest moment.
  • Time Marker:  This evening the Ride Studio Cafe had it’s employee holiday gathering.  It was really nice to relax with my co-workers.  A rare occurrence.

Post title:  Nietzsche replied, “our writing equipment takes part in the forming of our thoughts.” Under the sway of the machine, writes the German media scholar Friedrich A. Kittler , Nietzsche’s prose “changed from arguments to aphorisms, from thoughts to puns, from rhetoric to telegram style.”
