As we see it, though, there are critical gaps in the disciplines that cities and citizens might naturally call upon to help them grasp this opportunity. As a profession, interaction design has tended to have problems thinking beyond the screen; it lacks any account of large-scale physical, spatial or social environments. Meanwhile, the fields that...

growing up my mom had a trinket in the kitchen hanging up that read "if your mind can conceive it, and your heart can believe it, then you can achieve it." This sign caught my eye on a recent visit and got me thinking so i was trying to have a conversation with a friend and i was trying to explain how i believe if i focus- in my mind i...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KKNnjFpGto This is what a waterdrop dropped onto water looks like when filmed at 10,000 frames-per-second. It behaves similar to a bouncy ball, called the coalescence cascade, in that the droplet dumps about half of its water into the pool of water below, then bounces back up into the air, and repeats until...

Bank of America, Amazon, MasterCard and PayPal are some of the companies that stopped doing business with Wikileaks. While it is quite clear that this follows ‘some’ pressure from the US government I do like to point to a more principal issue here. I believe that it is the right of every person on the planet to have access to all...

Unconsciously building our demise. With money becoming so important, and its uses so often worthless, we care only for our own survival. Dependent on a system that is designed to crash. With money removed from the picture, we'd still have all the tools and resources that exist now. All the means to achieve things, all the people capable of...

Thorium-232 is an isotope with a half-life of 14 billion years. Unexpectedly, he fell in love once with Helium-5, whose half-life lasts around a hundred millionth of a trillionth of a second. It may sound weird but it worked: Helium-5 loved Thorium-232, too. A lot. Well, they were not happily ever after but after all ... Physicist Carlo...

I am constantly in wonder of the idea of time. As a constructed measurement it is a human necessity. We must have a way to universally relate to our placement in everything that has been, is, and will be. But what strikes me most about our current understanding of the universe is that the notion and application of "time" is so...

Okay, let’s move a little. Let’s make some examples and explanation. I’d like to take you deeper in my thoughts.
