Dear Tumblr Addicts: Fake Scientist Will Cure Your Symptoms
Dear Students, Teachers, Janitors:
Fake Scientist here — the author of your favorite fake science blog. If our lab’s calculations are right, most of you have been back in school for a while, experimenting with glue inhalation and testing if Bunsen burners can ignite human hair. You’re probably just finishing your fourth reread of our new 272-page textbook, Fake Science 101. Though it was banned in Houston — because of a supposed “lack of facts” — Fake Science 101 covers everything from earth science to astronomy, complete with handy charts and quizzes to keep you occupied during lectures. But while we know that real science is what keeps most of you up at night, the Internet is what keeps us up — and breaking away can be difficult. Our research is here to help. With Tumblr as our guide, we’ve identified five ways to know you’ve got an Internet addiction problem — and, of course, how to solve it.
Trapped in the Tumblr Closet: Cole Stryker
Net culture book dude Cole Styker today finds himself Trapped in the Tumblr Closet. You may know Cole from his first tome, Epic Win for Anonymous — or his new one, Hacking the Future, which comes out September 13. While firmly ensconced in our closet, Cole freely discusses the joys of anonymity, pseudonymity, and blue fairies.
The Creators of LA: Adam Lisagor
For the last 10 months, self-taught photographer Megan McIsaac has been traveling the West Coast in an RV — a 1977 Toyota “Dolphin” — and gathering portraits of friends and creative types she met along the way. Now settled in Los Angeles, with a Mamiya c330 camera, McIsaac decided to document the community that’s inspired so much of her work: Tumblr. This is part of a series of photographic profiles.
I came across Adam Lisagor and his Sandwich Video production company a few years ago, through mutual creative friends. Adam and his team make videos, mostly for neat tech products ranging from Warby Parker to Groupon and Airbnb. I met up with him in his beautiful studio in the arts district, where I photographed him working on one of his latest commercials.
