Michael Dyrland’s Hazmat Surfing Photo Series imagines what life might be like twenty or twenty-five years into the future, when our waters become so poisoned that we might only enter them in full biohazard gear. Yikes.
I just spent an eternity clicking through the insanely big archive of Duvet Cover Designs over Society 6. Below are some of the ones that made m look and that I would totally put on my bed or use in my kids room. Anyone know how they hold up after a few cycles in the washing machine?
I could have made some serious use of Google’s Translate App when I traveled to Asia a little over a year ago. Impressive!
This is an astounding behind-the-scenes video about the technologies running the NYC subway system. While I knew that the system is *old* I didn’t realize the infrastructure has never really updated and still is run with 1930 equipment.

Last week this little family adopted a rescue cat from an ASPCA shelter in Manhattan. While we are still trying to figure out a name (most difficult process in history) the cat is super happy and so are my kids. And I have discovered pet accessories. What a huge market! Can we talk about this felted cat bed. Made me smile.

The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of Earth and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment. ‘Overview’ is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect and features important commentary on the wider implications of this understanding for our society and our relationship to the environment.
