What are the haps my friends

October 21st, 2013: Janek sent me this early comic translated into Toki Pona, which is amazing. Toki Pona is a constructed language I'd never encountered before (Wikipedia says it has 3 people who are fluent) but I kind of love it: it's designed to be simple but still allow you to express complex thought.

Check it out: there's five names for colours in Toki Pona (describing black, white, yellow, blue, and red - in other words, the CYMK colour space) and you can describe other colours by combining these two colours together like you would paints. Green is a "bluish yellow". This is totally rad!

GUESS WHAT JUST CAME OUT: IT'S MY NEW BOOK!! If you've ever wondered what you'd do if you were stranded in the past, wonder no longer! With HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, you'll reinvent civilization from scratch, no matter what time period you're in. You'll become the single most influential, decisive, and important person ever born. You'll make history...


Here's the trailer!

One year ago today: legend tells of the first fairies to invent magic who accidentally turned all the air in a twenty-kilometer radius to Jell-O pudding. their bodies were found weeks later by the pudding scavengers.
