The idea of probono work and charity work has been itching at my brain for some time now (as shown in my last update). I've already done some small charitable projects, but I think it's time to do something HUGE! I've had an acquaintance talk to me a few times about the idea of seeking government grants to do humanitarian projects and I'm starting to cave. If any of you have good ideas, please send them to me -- rollins.jackson@gmail.com

I've been on a community service kick lately. Not because it's been ordered by the sate (come on now), but because I feel I've gained a lot from the information I have gained from others and now I would like to share information for the benefit of everyone else.

I'm currently helping out with the Libertang.com website by helping them with their CMS, CCK (content creation kit), and potentially their CSS. I got in with them because one of the founders is a friend of mine who I got to know online over Counter-Strike (go figure) during high school.

One of my current probono projects is similar to google docs, but more directed at education. It will allow one or more persons to enter in question/answer related material and condense it to a flash card environment. This will hopefully play a role in helping the user memorize terms or quiz themselves on the related subject. I'll be sure to post when it's in beta.

I was writing an email to a client when I noticed my email signature was in the wrong spot. I selected it, then copied it. Next I went to paste it in the correct spot, but pasted what had previously been in the clipboard. Apparently I haven't obtained the skills to press "ctrl" and "c" simultaneously. Anyway, the text that was pasted was:

EventDispatcher.prototype.addEventListener = function(type, listener) {    
//"target":EventDispatcher.prototype.addEventListener.callee    
this._listeners.push({"type":type, "listener":listener, "target":this});
}

Let's face it, when you go to paste seemingly harmless text and are repremanded via a slap of code to the face, you need to come to grips with the fact that you may have become so nerdy that there is no chance of ever becoming a normal human being, ever again. Embrace it, this is not a bad thing. You have attained a level of geek majesty that some only dream of and if the stars aline, maybe we'll see eachother at a nearby Startrek convention..

I was looking around a logos today and found a cool little site that picks a usually nifty logo every day to link on their site. I thought this was pretty cool so I decided to give them some SEO++ by linking them on my site. Check them out at http://logooftheday.com/
