Update: What I’m Doing 2
To clarify, the pain/rejection mostly comes from sensory input that involves rapid changes of subject, such as browsing the front page of Google News (the worst), looking at a Facebook wall, or pretty much anything that involves my eyes darting to and from lots of different things. (but that could be as simple as trying to find a rubber-band in a crowded drawer, or trying to choose food on a menu.) It’s like my mind just wants to focus, and not do wanderous things.
(Note: If you have any advice on this, please drop me a line here: [nevermind, all better]. As far as I can tell, it seems that maybe nothing is known – at least online – about what this condition might be, or how to treat it… but I’m open to suggestions. For now, I’m keeping that sector of my head mostly rested, and preparing to blow $3,000 I don’t have, at a brain-center.)
Also, in other “what I’m doing” news:
- There’s no longer any timeframe for the Alphaila article I’ve been working on, mentioned in the last “what I’m doing” post. I realized there’s a better angle I can pitch it from – stoked – but that means work… and I’m going to let a few smaller projects slip in before it’s done.
- I’m trying to develop a technique for videographers/photographers to use projectors for lighting. Basically, using a laptop, you can project Photoshop itself onto your scene, and literally paint the exact lighting you want. To illustrate, you shine your laptop screen onto something like a couch, maximize Photoshop, so no interface is visible, and paint various colors onto the couch, to get extremely precise lighting. For a decent number of setups, it works well, but the workflow has some annoyances I’m trying to resolve.
