GREETINGS FROM THE PHILLIPS OF NEBRASKA – JANUARY, 1958

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

At long last you are to have a report from the Curtis Phillips family! We wish for each of you the very best in this coming year. We really mean that invitation on the map we designed and are sending: “Won’t you come visit us?” We love company! We’ve had a lot during this first year here and it’s made our move easier, because we’ve seen folks from home often, and new neighbors here have made us feel welcome.

Retro Space: 21st Century Arcade Done Right Lately, I’ve been pitching a lot of people on what they think a modern arcade cabinet should look like. This is an interesting take, but I’d like to see someone pull of an IKEA style cabinet.

Santa Monica hacker drinkup

Friday, August 1st, 2008

I was with a group of random conference attendees eating lunch at LayerOne, when we realized we were all from Santa Monica—it was fairly obvious for how much we were complaining about the temperature in Pasadena. We decided to start meeting up in Santa Monica on the only schedule that ever works: every single week. I pick a bar and post our 8PM Wednesday meetup to Upcoming every week (add me). We don’t do any serious business, besides challenge coin jousting, but it’s nice to have good friends and likeminds get together. We’ve met for 11 straight weeks. It’s good a recluse like me has a regular event like this; at least I know I’ll make it out for one night a week. Next week is Black Hat/Defcon, so we’re taking the week off.
