John’s Dragon

May 7, 2010

A lovely new stat dragon (first two here and here) by the fantastic John Kovaleski, another of my cohorts at Goddard. John is the kind of person you want on your life team: hilarious, kind, talented, hardworking, humble, and just the right amount of weird. Creator of the adorable “Bo Nanas” cartoon, he’s also working on a wonderful illustration installation project, “Used Books Unbound,” that involves drawing cleverly on the pages of books.  It’s an honor to share this little green beast from John’s formidable brain!

And speaking of stat dragons, my original post (with the fabulous Bruce) is featured in this month’s issue of the Zen Peacemaker’s (ZP) online newsletter, Bearing Witness! (Sidebar, under “Resources For Mindful Technology Use.”) The May edition focuses on socially engaged Buddhism online, with some familiar topics (the digital divide; Twitter in Iran; Wisdom 2.0 — the book and the conference, where I tried to raise some economic issues) and some I’d never heard of (Second-Life demonstrations for Tibet; Burmese protest marches organized via Facebook). Ari Pliskin, ZP tech master and architect of these monthly newsletters, was a lovely houseguest here at the Fools last weekend when we both attended the Wisdom 2.0 Summit.  An opportunity to get to know the good-hearted man behind the media. :)

Have a good weekend, everybody!  More excitement in store for Monday.

    I love John- and his Dragon. Does it look as if it is running out of steam? Can we ask if this is reflective of the last packet of the semester at Goddard? Anywhooo….great work, John, AND great description of John of FB, Katie!!!

    Wow, Dana, I think your analysis of me through the dragon is frighteningly spot on.

    Fssssssssssssss (sound of steam escaping)
