Stitch.

1. A place for ideaposts. Idea posts are for things I’d like to do or see someone else do. Email me or reblog if it makes you think of something related, or already done, or that you’re about to do with me.

2. A concoction of things that I like and a few things that I make. I'm especially into anything that helps me imagine ways to connect youth from different cultures in artistic, ridiculous, hilarious, serious exchanges.

3. Inspired by students & teachers I've worked with through projects like these: Inside/Out: Multimedia exchange between students in California and China. The Small World Project: Ongoing workshop series of online youth collaborations piloted in Hong Kong.

Some of my stuff: Videos on vimeo. Images on flickr.

Always eager to say hi back, allegro at gmail.

By photographing bacteria colonies confronted with challenges such as antibiotics or limited food, Tel-Aviv University professor Eshel Ben-Jacob hopes to unravel their adaptation secrets. Swirl-like vortex and branching shapes, for instance, result from the delicate balance between density requirements and nutritional needs. seed

Clearly, the only place to be on Friday is at the first GECS open-air film screening event featuring silent comedy films (keaton! chaplin!) with a score of live music by students & staff & other lovelies.
Guaranteed cold temperatures, hot chocolate and an even-hotter fire to lounge near. 6-9pm, Dec. 18. Projection on the side of the Zamboni shack at the ice rink.
With a population density of 8 people / square mile, that leaves a lot of extra space for coolness like this. Join us!

From Dave, for Dave. It’s comforting to know that this kind of gorgeousness is floating through space.
Check-in question of the day: What would you launch into space, and why?

Yikes, and also wow! The old wood stove in the corner is neat, too.
Once we have the space, support and materials up here, building new stuff out of recycled other stuff is an inevitable and tasty and good project.
