Gaining Momentum

with 8 comments


Another Lost Project – The Quantitative and Qualitative Measuring Devices – are gaining a little momentum. A few of these Good Fast Cheap Triangles will be offered for ‘uesr testing’ soon. More drawings and devices to come.

As an update. Julian writes more intelligently about the conversations around these devices and drawings. His fine articulation can be found here http://www.nearfuturelaboratory.com/2009/05/18/measuring-the-immeasurable/

A home in Utah

leave a comment »



Thanks to Jim and Shawn for the spectacular images of the Birdhouses now hanging in Utah, somewhere near Panguitch. Raphael http://grignani.org/ started a Flickr Group http://www.flickr.com/groups/1075724@N23/ where some of the images and locations of the Bird Houses are now found. A new batch of houses will be out soon, which means an new list. So if you fancy one, and have a good spot in mind. Drop me a line.
