Some things popping up and absorbing my attention this week.
- Mushrooms + human hair = oil spill cleanup
- Customizing big flying spaces. What will the future archeologists say? The economics and ecologics of such endeavours stagger me.
- Wow. Ashley dreams of flying,by putting all that space on the OUTSIDE.
- An old friend from Peterborough, Andy Quan, comes back on my radar with a new book of poems edited by another old friend, John Barton, with whom I was a associate editor of ARC magazine in the early 1990s. I love the web.
- Good media (page 1, page 2) from a recent Open Space event at WOSU in Columbus Ohio run by my friend Tuesday Ryan-Hart.
- Garret Lisi’s theory of everything and some useful discussion.
- “At the root of the music industry’s transformation is a rediscovery, or a renewed appreciation, of the communal origins of music-making and listening. As MP3 players and online video have grown in popularity, so has an appreciation that music isn’t just something that goes on between your ears.” Yes. And. The answer is to write songs about your place.
- The story of stuff and Regenerosity. Two from Pollard.
- Viv’s looking at facilitation too.
- My favourite web radio station at the moment: Groove Salad. Try it with mushrooms!
PS…somehow my annual December 6 post got saved to a drafts folder. I’ve republished it below.
