oblique strategies

...or ways to get unstuck. Originally a deck of cards created by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt, and subtitled, "over one hundred worthwhile dilemmas," Oblique Strategies is now a creative utility for OS X. (And a free download, at that!) Click on the button below a brushed metal window and you are offered a word, a phrase, a question, a sentence. Perhaps helpful? Perhaps not? I'm reminded of the Magic 8-Ball, though in some incarnations Oblique Strategies are more about art than about oracle.

Thanks to BoingBoing for another great link.

(This is my first post from the new computer - I've been moving files since yesterday, and now I'm almost all in one place.)
