Pacific Tides
My name is Thomas Sturm and I'm a programmer, photographer and writer.

Now go outside and look at the sky.

Let's start this on the right foot

Here we go! Pacific Tides is finally online...

As a first entry, here is some Good Stuff: A couple of days ago I stumbled over the whole Amazon wish list thing. Well, I kinda knew that wish lists exist, but I never realized that you can search for other people's wish lists. And Jon Carroll here in our local paper pointed out that you can find public libraries in there.

Indeed. Not just libraries. You can find the wish lists of hundreds of primary schools all over the US in there. Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this? I don't think so.

Thanks to the antisocial and greedy politicians populating congress nowadays, it's not worth waiting for change from the top, I'm afraid. So until a better time, check out if you can find a local school's wish list.

One school here in the Bay Area is the Steffan Manor School, a primary school that lost their library to a fire a while ago. There wish list is more than 500 books long. For $25 you can buy them 6 or 7 books with free shipping.

It will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside...
