The world needs more poetic humans like Tom Lawton. He is the creator of Uplift, a solar-powered sculpture designed to soothe the soul that’s made from waste fishing nets.
What a fascinating glimpse into a different world: Greenland, the remote territory, rich in minerals and pure water, shows the world how to live during quarantine.
HELP: Dear dev savvy humans, how do I turn off autoplay on this video? I looked at the code but it’s not obvious to me.
A retro-style receiver that plays radio stations from 18 cities around the world. FUN!
What’s the most powerful tool that nobody knows about?
Twitter advanced search.
Here’s a fun way to use it:
1) Pick your favorite person to follow.
2) Search their most popular tweets.
3) Scroll until you get bored.
Then, do it again. It’s the most fun you’ll have on Twitter.

Whoa! Why didn’t I discover iNaturalist sooner? It’s an app that helps you identify the plants and animals around you by connecting with a community of over a million scientists and naturalists. By recording and sharing your observations, you’ll create research quality data for scientists working to better understand and protect nature. iNaturalist is a joint initiative by the California Academy of Sciences and the National Geographic Society.
I would love to meet the humans behind Sounds of the Forest. They are collecting the sounds of woodlands and forests from all around the world, creating a growing soundmap bringing together aural tones and textures from the world’s woodlands.
The sounds form an open source library, to be used by anyone to listen to and create from. Selected artists will be responding to the sounds that are gathered, creating music, audio, artwork or something else incredible, to be presented at Timber Festival 2021.
This is pure and lovely. So much YES!
Yes, to this shirt and message. (I can vote for the first time in this election, since living in the USA!)
