We watched (and perhaps talked) to the...

Life is about experiencing. There is no one in your life more central as a character than yourself. Therefore, I decided that experiential protagonism is the way forward. What is it? To me it is the essense of life as a living, breathing human being. Every day we interact, learn, teach, experience. From these experiences we grow. Central to this...

Human beings versus machines, or machines as instruments of human designs? The answers to these two questions would have been obvious years ago: Human beings, of course, machines are instruments of human design! But now days when we speak so much of progress, science and technology as if progress, science and technology were in themselves...

Combine a dimly lit room with Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Flickr.com, and an array of other comfort-rot activities, and you get a recipe for the dissolve of interest of most other things in life. Namely, my job as an industrial designer in the field of visual merchandising. I've been spending the past year partaking in the subtle manipulation of the...

In the next post, I will examine possible vaccines and counterpoints that could be built into the architecture, as well as possible constructive uses that could help all of us...
