September 2nd, 2008 by isaac · 8 Comments

I’m am beginning to work on a essay for a conversation on technology and worship sponsored by Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary. Below you can read my initial attempt at working through some of the literature. Part 1 Why not start with Karl Barth? In his essay, “Church and Culture” (in Theology and Church, London: SCM, […]

Ahh, Space to Write

October 11th, 2007 by Jason · 2 Comments

It’s been ages (in blogging terms anyway) since writing anything here. Several reasons: didn’t have much to say, moved into a new house, summer is short enough in Seattle without spending it inside, etc. But the big reason is that the blog had just started to feel cluttered and old. The theme it was running […]

Theology Lectures on the Super-Info Highway

June 12th, 2007 by Jason · 1 Comment

A few months ago I somehow overcame my aversion to running and started jogging a few times a week. Since I listen to music pretty much constantly during the day while working I’m not that interested in listening to more music while running so I’ve taken to listening to theology lectures/discussions while running. It works […]

“Divine Strake”: the military claims divinity? sicut deus

January 19th, 2007 by isaac · 3 Comments

I switched on the radio on my way to pick up my wife from work yesterday. And I half-listened to a report of a community in Nevada protesting a possible test conducted by the The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (funded by the US Department of Defense). It was a good story—quite interesting and informative. But […]

what’s this blog about?

February 21st, 2006 by Jason · 1 Comment

Via verbum ipsum I came across this word cloud generator and thought it was geeky and cool enough to warrant a post. My favorite part is the small “yeah” in the bottom middle. Who knew our Californian accent came through so strong? That “bush” was so big was a bit of a mystery at first […]

Going to Europe!

August 21st, 2005 by Jason · 2 Comments

In just a couple weeks Nance and I will be heading off to Europe for three weeks. Being a geek I decided to see if I could find a google maps implementation which would allow me to plot our trip on a map. I found Gmaps Pedometer which allows you to plot a map of […]

noobie web programming

April 9th, 2004 by Jason · Comments Off on noobie web programming

A good high scool friend, anthony , asked what would be the best way to get his feet wet in the web programming arena. I’ve been asked a couple times, so here’s my little “intro” guide:

power point fluff

March 25th, 2004 by Jason · Comments Off on power point fluff

I have been spared power point fluff for the most part during my life. In college I only had a few teachers who used it (and it was mildly helpful in those classes since the teacher talked a mile a minute). However, having experienced several corporate power point presentations now, I can understand why so […]

The nuances of JOIN

August 1st, 2003 by Jason · Comments Off on The nuances of JOIN

Gerg and I were banging our heads one day because our application had become extremely slow. We had added a bunch of test data (100,000+ rows) and now our list page was taking 30 seconds to load. So we began trying to re-formulate our query in all the possible ways to find out what part […]
