I love you! Thank you so much for this blog. Seriously. It's a beautiful, wonderful needle in the giant haystack that is my feed reader... and every time I come across it, it gets higher up my list. You should get more comments.

These videos and things tell us such amazing things about humanity and our view of technology as a culture. :)
