Volcanoes and Northern Lights

I’ve been to Iceland, but missed the Northern Lights. And this photo from artist James Appleton makes me want to go more.

What a beautiful network infographic!

Just loaded LinkedIn Maps and really love picking apart all the different clusters and nodes. It’s pretty much a self-interested information geek’s dream. The biggest thing I learned about myself is that I’m connected to lots of people individually and then have a few very dense works.

In the vein of those pieces of tech, apps, and big think pieces out there aimed at getting me to reflect on my thoughts and behavior, I find this mirror into professional connections very interesting.

Check it out for yourself.

There’s a time for dreaming and a time for wacky

Architecture gets a bad rap. Most of the time, people just glaze over when I talk about buildings or what I love about space: no I didn’t put on my monotone voice. In modern US of A, we’ve lost any kind of real conversation, no, care about our environment. Green- tree-loving side or inspirational-makes-you-gasp-walking-down-the-street side or otherwise.

Bam! in Italy recently won a competition on Venice – which as a sidenote, is a very dear city to my heart – and it’s slight sinking problem! Love it or hate it; dreamy, ungrounded, even flippant it’s certainly a discussion.  What do you think?

Goddard and Typeface!

Goddard was a huge part of my college film-viewing history. There is something about the uncomfortable pause, the visual storytelling and those amazing settings that give his films a taunting quality. The arrival of a site that marries type and Goddard.
