Screen grab of Yahoo’s search result (#9) for “Nikolas”

Having a eponymous website means that both my first & last name are combined to create the name for my website. The other day I decided to see where my first name (Nikolas) and my last name (Schiller) showed up in the search results of the three major search engines Google, MSN and Yahoo. The results are somewhat surprising.

As you’ll see below, “Nikolas” was ranked #8, #9, and #11 and “Schiller” is #31, #114, and #106 on Google, MSN, and Yahoo, respectively.

That Kid with the Maps [from Gwadzilla]

After meeting Joel last year and reading his blog periodically, I’ve been waiting to finally run into him while riding my bike. Last Friday, I was going to Staples to pick up some ink for my printer and there was Joel standing on the corner of 19th & M Streets with his camera, a six pack of coke, and a box of pizza. I look forward to the next time he spots me!

Screen Grab from Curbed LA

It looks like my ‘oil slick’ overlay of downtown Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Interchange Series are getting some exposure.

Some day I’d like to have the entire series printed and hung in Los Angeles and maybe include a gilded bicycle [ha!]. I wonder why there isn’t a Curbed DC yet?



Solitary Protest Recap

I originaly posted this to the DC IMC

a quick recap of my morning protest

At the corner of E st & 20th, as cars came out of the E St tunnel, there is a stop light. As cars waited for the green light, they were greeted by me decked out in a neon orange jumpsuit with a large sign saying “NO BLOOD FOR OIL.” Thousands of cars passed by me from 7am to 9:30am, many honked their horns, some shook their head in disbelief, some said “Thank You,” one lady gave me a granola bar, and most just gave a good thumbs up. It was a solitary protest, but a good one nonetheless. The cliche, “the power of one” holds true and dear to me. Today is the International Day of Action, and I think I was able to turn a few heads and non-violently, silently, and boldly give my message to thousands.
