The DS106 Daily Create has done it’s thing non-stop, every day since January 8, 2012 thanks to a dedicated crew of open and class participants in DS106 plus people who work behind the scenes to keep it populated. How many other web things have had a continuous 6+ year run? With no budget? While tech […]
It’s been a while since I blogged a breakdown on the making of a DS106 Daily Create. I was lagging a bit on energy this afternoon, and that’s when I see if I can publish a Daily Create response in less than an hour. TDC2027 was a fun one: #tdc2027 Shatner A Song: William Shatner, […]

Long ago, long before the web, as a Geology student, I was on a trip to Los Angeles. On the return drive along I-10 I saw this billboard that read: Barry’s Bail Bonds: We’ll get You Out… Even if it Takes Us 20 Years! Why does this memory stay in my little brain some 30 […]
It was just a simple daily create. Well today’s could be simple (take a photo of a cloud) but the prompt was to play with the idea of the Judy Collins song Both Sides Now.
Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
and feather canyons everywhere, I've looked at clouds that way.
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone.
So many things I would have done but clouds got in my way.
I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
from up and down, and still somehow
it's cloud illusions I recall.
I really don't know clouds at all.
Clouds as beauty to gawk at clouds as things which block the light and make you cold. What is […]
Some of the best experiences doing the DS106 Daily Create are taking on one that you think is maybe not all that special, interesting, and falling into a magic shiny rabbit hole… in the act of just letting the mind fly open and also stumbling across the unexpected trigger. I’m responsible for today’s one– I […]
There’s a lot to like about the DS106 Daily Create. There is also a lot of them, today’s was number 1493; this has gone on for 1493 days since January 8, 2012 without missing a beat. Four years. The best part is the unexpected range of responses, epecially when they seem so… simple. Maybe even […]
A big hat tip to Mariana Funes for cleverly taking an idea for a DS106 Daily Create into the next level of interestingness. The one for TDC 1384 is called just “Removed”: US photographer Eric Pickersgill created “Removed” a series of powerful black and white photos. Inspired by this, your prompt for today comes from […]
