Links

Below, I’ve posted a number of interesting links that I hope you will enjoy.  If you have a website you’d like me to link to here,  let me know!  As time goes on, this list will grow, so make sure and check back now and then to discover what tasty new nougats have been left behind.

 

Personal

Beyond Monochrome – The personal photography website of my good friend Walker Pickering.  On top of having a Master’s of Fine Arts and teaching as a Photography Professor, this guy also has some amazing raw talent.  You should definitely check out his work, it’s fantastic.

Justin’s Electrical Engineering Blog – My old blog, basically a journal of my final year of college where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering.  Lots of robotics/electronics stuff on there for those who are interested in that kind of thing.  It also eventually launched this current effort, so there’s that I guess.

Justin’s Facebook Page – In case you missed the neat little icons up there, here’s a link to my Facebook page.  I want to be your friend!  Please don’t spam me.

Justin’s Twitter – See above.

Dropbox – Awesome online cloud storage service.  Integrates right into your desktop, and also has mobile apps so that your files are always with you wherever you go.  Make sure and use me as a referral and we’ll both get extra space when you sign up.  Win-win!

 

Writing

Duotrope’s Digest – If you are serious about writing and submitting to literary magazines, both online and in print, then this is the only site you will ever need.  Tons of publications are listed with them, including submission statistics such as waiting time and percentage of acceptances/rejections.  Good stuff!

Submishmash – Lots of publications are going to an online submission system, and I’ve found that many, many of them are using this service.  It’s actually pretty nice, as it shows you where you are in the process and allows you tools to manage your submissions.

NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month.  Can you write 50,000 words in one month?  I attempted this for the first time in 2010, and failed spectacularly.  However, the following year in 2011, I won!  If you’ve always wanted to write a novel but just couldn’t find the motivation, this may be just the thing for you.

 

Fun

Penny Arcade – Probably the premiere web comic on the internet.  Content can be pretty raw, but they consistently get a laugh out of me.  Updates three times a week, and mostly focused on gaming and technology.

The Perry Bible Fellowship – Not what it sounds like.  It’s also a web comic (I like web comics, okay?).  I don’t even know how to describe this one.  It’s offbeat, dark, sometimes downright macabre, but the punchline always delivers.  Often times gut-bustingly so.  The style is as varied as the content, ranging from simplistic stick figures to beautifully crafted works of art.  Definitely check this one out.

Ted’s Caving Page – How about a scary story?  Ted the Caver is one of my favorite internet stories.  It starts off slow, but pulls you in quickly and then holds you all the way until the terrifying climax.  Have fun.  You can thank me later tonight when you find yourself unable to fall asleep.

The Dionaea House – Another scary story online, but this one is much more expansive.  It’s a great experience as it is (and quite frightening to boot).  However, the end of this one isn’t really the end.  Don’t stop once you finish the initial story.  Follow the links, do some investigating.  You’ll find that the Dionaea House goes much farther than you think.
