The impetus

Welcome to the new Black Rectangle. 

I've had the thought of "Black Rectangle" kicking around in my head for some time now. The original idea started almost as a joke as few years ago.  I kept thinking about how every new phone or device could really be boiled down to a black rectangle. Some may be larger or function faster, but everyone was looking at the same black rectangles over and over.

Through these Black Rectangles we experience a new part of living. We are connected to people we may never otherwise know about. We read, laugh, argue, and stay (mis)informed. 

This site is designed to be a collection of thoughts - some of them my own, others found or contributed. Its a creative project and something of a catch all for various ideas. A black rectangle: a clean slate.

One piece

There is one particular piece of writing that I found truly inspiring and is the kind of content I am shooting for on this site. Its called "Number Sign Wife Her If"  and it is exactly what this site is going for. It was inspired by a cheesy trending hashtag, but Mxrk (aka, "Mark") took that and turned it inside out and made something hilarious and wonderful.

I can't promise I'll be even half that great, but I had to start somewhere. 

I hope you enjoy the site and tell others about it.
