Jacob Li Hopkins: Glitch Artist

Not long ago, Danny Allen posted over at Gizmodo about a new artform called “glitch art.” My three year old son Jacob Li got a Leapster2 for Christmas, and his favorite function on the device is the “learn to draw” option. Somehow, he’s learned how to save his art pieces, and I’ve peeked over his shoulders before, and some of the stuff is actually pretty good. Unfortunately, none of the stuff that he’s drawn that looks like things you or I might find recognizable has been saved. I downloaded all the save files from the device a few minutes ago, and while nothing here looks like a daisy or a sun or puppy (the three things he’s learned to draw), I think he does have a promising career ahead in abstract...

A Quick Camera Test

This is a ridiculously short video of me and my son, and I know it looks silly sandwiched between my bumpers, but I’ve got the new video platform more or less configured, and I wanted to know what it looked like on the site as a published file. I’ll have more details about the platform in an announcement video some time tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy! Grab the MP4 link...

Family Pictures

I’ll be real honest, there’s a lot of things I could be talking about on the blog tonight. Instead, after finishing a quick little project for Podango this evening, I’m going to head to bed an hour or two early, and leave you with some pictures of me, my boys, and my wife. (My wife took most of these,...

Of Babies and Podcasts

A couple bits of interesting information. I finished an interview with Bill Grady of You Are The Guest Podcast. It was a delightful experience, and I recommend it to anyone. We talked about the state of New Media, what it’s future may hold, and discussed several of the top presidential candidates and how technically savvy their campaigns were. The show should probably air Sunday or Monday, depending on editing time. Bill also agreed to join the show Monday morning, to guest co-host with me during Art’s medical leave. Definitely not something you want to miss. My wife went to the doctor this afternoon for another of her pre-natal visits. They estimate the baby could be up to nine pounds now, and that she gained another six pounds over the previous week. She is under very strict orders not to do any heavy lifting – something that will be quite hard for her to refrain from – but baby Jacob’s health is in dire jeopardy if she ignores the doctor’s order (again, according to the doctor), so I assume she’ll be abiding by that. I really am expecting this to happen any day now. In other news, my new apartment is secured, so I don’t have to worry about Powell Properties Tyler‘s idiocy anymore. I have a super secret copy of the legal response that Google filed to Viacom. Pending a small investigation as to whether I can legally post it, I’ll have it up on the site. Look forward to that. Until then, deuce!...

Jacob Li Hopkins: More Baby Pictures

In my continuing effort to inform the entire world that I have a son on the way, here are even more pictures of my unborn child… this time, an entire gallery of them. In this collection you can actually see his face, and his profile. I did a little bit of Photoshop work on them once I got them home, so they’re a bit easier to understand what you’re looking at....
