In spirit, these five questions were really going to be about Pinterest, but I realize not everyone’s down with Pinterest. So I rewrote them to be about the Internet in general, but if you want to answer them about Pinterest specifically, that would swell.

  2. How has a photograph you saw on the Web influenced the way you shot a photograph of your own?
  3. What’s a cool trick you learned on the Web that has made your life easier?
  4. What’s the most useless thing you’ve ever seen on the Web?
  5. What’s a totally silly but endlessly amusing thing you’ve discovered on the Web?

Sorry for the website issues. My server is having load issues, mostly because hackers have found backdoors in some of the websites I haven’t been as careful about security updates with. I’ve already closed several of the vulnerabilities and deleted many offending directories and files, but it’s going to be a long process getting things back to smooth operation. I apologize for the hassle, but hope you’ll stick around. :)

  1. What did you last stick a sticker on?
  2. What did you last put a lid on?
  3. What did you last wrap in foil?
  4. What did you last unscrew a screw out of?
  5. What did you last hold together with tape?
