My Card or Yours?

I’ve had some instances lately where have been asked to write down my address here for others. I was thinking about having some personal cards made up with the address here, but kept putting this off because of the expense. A lot of times, it’s very handy to have preprinted cards to give to your acquaintances when you see them (in real life, that is) so that they have something with your URL on it, and it also serves as a good spot to make some small notes on the back for them like a reminder of a party, or maybe another site that you had been discussing. I found a site called ooPrint that offers 100 FREE business cards, where all you pay is the shipping. I’ve used a place similar to this in the past. One big twist is the “web 2.0” designs that they have that are geared toward bloggers. These designs are listed in their online catalog as “blogger business card”, and there are four designs with varying colors and icons. What I really like about these is that they feature a slick-looking tag cloud at the bottom. Not only that, but you customize the words that make up the tag cloud, so your cards are fully customized to what your blog is about.

The site is easily navigated, and as you fill in the information for the cards, you immediately see a mini proof of how the cards will look. Besides the specials on business cards, they have a host of other printed solutions to choose from, including custom wine labels and neat-looking invitations.

Waking to Dream

So when we first see Neo at home, we see an absolute slew of research: newspaper clippings, several computers whirring and tumbling through archived data, all looking for Morpheus, and we see Neo having fallen asleep at the helm.

Morpheus: in Greek mythology, the god of dreams. More specifically, ultra-realistic dreams.

One of the pervading ideas in the first Matrix movie was the idea that sometimes, you cannot discern what is truly dream and what is truly reality. Knowing the penchant of the directors to pull from many different religions, you’ll find that this has a lot to do with part of the Worldview of Buddhism. Dreams are not always empty, which is why we talk about our dreams, Study them, interpret them, thrive on them. Wakefulness is only half of our lives, remember….

It’s absolutely important to be productive and organized sometimes, and at other times, you have to decompress, and let things happen organically. It’s the Yen and Yang, the circle of life, the crests and troughs of consciousness.
