Ahhh, longest 15 minutes of fame, ever!

Question is, is 15 minutes of fame among the nerd community a good thing or a bad thing?

"Look, it's the beerquad nerd! NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERD!"

I think I'm in the right place now...

Black Rock Arts Foundation Offices, adjoined to the Burning Man offices. I'm basically in the "Grand Central Station" for hippies in S.F.

I'm turning trash in to art. Garbage in, Garden out.

Judging from your websight, you might be interested in contributing.

More details at 11...

"Ora di Latina" in an expression common in Italy (and has like expressions in other Latin countries) where the hour given is an ambitious estimate that isn't to be trusted.

For example, the Italian train schedule is in "ora di Latina."

And Mussolini was famous for getting them to run on time.

Maybe I should take into consideration other time zones more often, but why 11:00 (3:00 my time)?

It's a bullshit saying news teasers do so you'll watch the 11 o'clock news.

It's a cliche.

Does it make it a cliche even if I have never heard the saying? Something to thing about I suppose.
