Get out the vote on November 4th, 2014

The Voting Information Project is offering free apps and tools that provide polling place locations and ballot information for the 2014 election across a range of technology platforms. The project provides official election information to voters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and voters can find answers to common questions such as “Where is my polling location?” and “What’s on my ballot?” through the convenience of their phone or by searching the web.

The only way a set of resources will be effective is if they make it into the right hands, so if you’re eligible to vote in the US Midterm Elections, take advantage of these tools and share them with your readers.

Simon Bike Riding

My son and I decided to make a “super BMX action sport video” together. He cruised around on his bike, pretending to be Matt Hoffman while I followed him on my skateboard with the camera.

Here’s the resulting video; shaky, out of focus, and rough editing – but so, so so much fun!
