May your 2012 …


The blog hasn’t been updated for sometime… as its blogger has been ‘on leave’ (from typing;p). But this is the first day of 2012, so she comes back temporarily. Here is one blog post for the readers….
May you find the food yummier, the air cleaner, the environment less abused, the cost much cheaper, the neighborhood safer, the bed cozier, and your home homier than ever.

Caffeine is my shepherd

Not Psalm 23
Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
It maketh me wakeful through the day
It leadeth me beyond the snoozy land
It restoreth my psyche:

[Lim’s crap generator] Artist and Words

When I was 16 almost 17, I read Homi Bhabba for the first time. I couldn’t understand him but I thought it was cool to borrow his terms, such as ‘hybridization, mimicry, pseudo-scientific’. Being so young, I read books I couldn’t understand just so I could use some ‘new’ words. I remember using difficult words of Bhabba, Derrida, and alike in my undergrad and early grad years to sound smart and to impress my lecturers (I used Bhabba’s type of neologisms in Theory and Philosophy of Architecture to get A, …

Lim’s end of semester rambling

warning: this is my rambling, written in rambling mode by a rambling mind. so it should be read as the rambling ;p
This is the end of semester. Meaning it’s a typically busiest time of the semester. Tons of files wait for your fingers to touch and caress. Heaps of papers need grading. And some unnecessary piles to be confiscated! I enjoy everything about it, except one thing: meeting! More meetings being held these days. I sometime wonder why people have to have meetings. I think meetings are the most dull …

Lotta updates… but first, new quotes

Lots of updates since my last posting: J had his successful concert with students at Indian Oasis Elementary School of the Tohono O’odham Nation (it was awesome);  my 2nd phase of the Ford funded field research will soon begin; my collaborative research (with computer science dept) on Blogtracker (Analyzing Social Media for Cultural Modeling) just got grant (yay!); with these two projects up and running I decided to create the Participatory Media Lab at ASU (the website isn’t launched yet, but here is the link); I was in Germany for 3.5 …

Hello there,
I know I know, my bad…. don’t remind me that it’s been ages since my last entry. Oh well, my last three months have been quite a journey — literally! Yes, 58 days out of town (out of country), traveling in more than 20 cities, mostly in Europe, and then came back to Tempe just to find myself staring at the piles of things to be done (and it doesn’t help that after a week I still am a lazy bone!).
Traveling is, as always, a great experience and this …

Do you think living in Phoenix Metropolitan is perfect? Hell no…. Don’t you have many complaints about your life? Do you feel like to complain?
Why not cry out rather than swallow what worries us Phoenix Metropolitan-dwellers? Why not contribute your frustration with professors, students, administrators, legislators, traffic jam, taxes etc. towards a powerful and pleasurable public complaint?

Bad me, I haven’t really spent much time and energy to really blog. So what I’ve been doing so far is writing/creating some quotes (as my FB status)…. I can imagine some people get it, some don’t. It’s OK, these are not ‘mainstream’ quotes. Just remember those who laugh last usually don’t really get the jokes, hehehe.

This is one of some lines I used in my Global Minds Speaker Series’ talk yesterday evening — it’s about cyberactivism etc….
“I found Facebook very educational. Once a friend turns it on, I go to the other room and read a book.” (Lim, 2009, hehehe).*
* inspired by Marx.
