This image of the USA at night, printed on a silk scarf, is a composite assembled from data acquired by the Suomi NPP satellite in April and October 2012. A brand new creation by Brooklyn based Slowfactory. Also available are New York, London and Paris by night. Lovely!
‘Flying Formation’ is a series of digital photo collages by Shaun Kardinal of birds flying in precise geometric formations.
Ebay announced yesterday that they would be “sunsetting” Svpply. On August 31, it will be no more. They’ve been considerate and provided Svpply users an option to export their data. If you are logged in to Svpply, you can go to your settings page and hit the “Export your account” link at the bottom to get your stuff (if your export fails you might need help from this).
Svpply is being shut down and that sucks. Let’s get together and make a new one. I am backing this Kickstarter.

“Criticism is a privilege that you earn — it shouldn’t be your opening move in an interaction…
The notion that the only way you can critically engage with a person’s ideas is to take a shot at them, is to be openly critical — this is actually nonsense. Some of the most effective ways in which you deal with someone’s idea are to treat them completely at face value, and with an enormous amount of respect. That’s actually a faster way to engage with what they’re getting at than to lob grenades in their direction…
If you’re going to hold someone to what they believe, make sure you accurately represent what they believe.”

Hashtag garden is a sculpture garden that you can hang on your wall. Think air plants, wood and moss. I have one floating over my computer at work and it makes me smile every time I look at it. Each “Hashtag” garden is an original artwork and hand-made in Los Angeles. Also available are @ symbol, LA, NY and PLAY.

“…Tribes thrive when they connect and coordinate and synchronize. They work when they create a cultural connection. But they can’t thrive when they merely embrace (or deny) the reality of the world around them.
As you organize and lead your tribe, then, the opportunity is to be crystal clear about what you stand for, but to give the alert observers within your clan the ability to stick with you and what they believe without having to pretend that the world outside doesn’t actually exist.”
