Hey, over here!

Man overboard!

I’ve packed my bags and moved everything here to my new blog on Tumblr: http://jruck.us.

I’ll post more on the logistics of moving an 8-year-old blog and all its content and comments from WordPress to Tumblr soon, which is actually a little harder than it sounds given Tumblr’s API limitations.

But in the meantime, help me in bidding farewell to the sometimes-buggy-but-usually-loveable WordPress site that first introduced me to the joys of blogging and building websites: Centripetal Notion.

Anyway enough of that, subscribe to my new feed already, or just follow me on Tumblr if that’s your thing.

Catch you on the flip side.

Vanishing Point

Pretty much the coolest thing ever today.

Every once and a while, you see something that so exactly represents the current state of artistic expression in its given genre, it almost renders itself obsolete. That’s kinda how I feel about this.

Thanks to everyone who is subscribed to Centripetal Notion. Traffic and activity has been higher in the last several months than ever before, yet at the same time I have never posted less often.

That’s not going to change for now. When I started this blog, it was my single channel for sharing ideas with friends and stumbling visitors. But now I do this on other sites as well, including the various social networks.

I won’t stop posting here though, not anytime soon. But what ends up here nowadays are only the things I feel really passionate about sharing. Before I’d often post 2 or 3 times a day, now it’s generally 2 or 3 times a month.

I hope you’ll welcome this in an age of information overload, and appreciate that I’m only sending stuff your way I either think is genuinely important, and/or you won’t find anywhere else.

For a higher volume of miscellaneous artsy/sciencey/techy/sexy stuff like what used to come through here, feel free follow me on Twitter:

Also, you might be interested in my personal blog, where I post about what I’m up to of a more professional nature: web/info design, citizen journalism, etc.:

I’m working on a redesign of this site. Nothing major, and it’s not finished, but already I like the change.

Hope this finds all of you well. I leave you with a kickass space picture and some badass music, as is only fair. If nothing else, this site will always have space pictures and music.
