Found on Facebook – episode 2

Every once in a while people post interesting stuff on Facebook, instead of just the inane time-sucking games and narcissism that usually goes on there.

Speaking of narcissism, here’s a picture of me that Lee Sargent drew for my birthday yesterday.

Everybody wants to play Clue Jr. with Jeff Caddick

That’s the only present I got yesterday that I wanted to share with everyone. (The Pringles are MINE.)

The caption from that was a take-off on his “No one wants to play with…” series which is very cool. Head over and give him some love. (And thanks again, Lee.)

I was also pointed to this very cool research being done by Microsoft. They’re taking a Kindle and a beam splitter and making steps toward a Star Trek-like Holodeck. They’re calling it the Holodesk.

That would be a fun research project. Here’s a little more detail if you’re interested.

Then there’s this:

I don’t even want to know how much time that took to put together.

Finally, we come to a bizarrely favorite thing from my childhood: The Battle of the Network Stars. A friend pointed to this article. I can’t say that I remember this particular moment, but it is a great story, and I certainly remember the show.

You just gotta love the ’70s. There is absolutely no way you could pull something like this off these days. The stars wouldn’t have it, the networks wouldn’t have it, and the lawyers probably wouldn’t have it either.

Back in the day, though, this is what passed for reality TV, and it is still pure gold, in my opinion. Way better than today’s elimination-based reality series. Who wouldn’t love to see Sheldon (The Big Bang Theory) beat Jim Caviezel (Person of Interest) in a race? That would just be awesome.
