There is this thing currently going around tumblr about why dating a writer is good. I think it’s nice that this thing is going around, because I like writers, and lots of us could use more dates. As a writer who has dated people, though — including other writers — I would like to offer some…
On October 1, 1890 the Yosemite National Park was created. One of the first steps to preserve the Yosemite region was taken in 1864 when President Lincoln signed Senate Bill 230, which removed the area from the public domain and granted it to California for “public use, resort, and recreation.”…
It doesn’t take much foresight to anticipate that with the rise of Natural User Interfaces (NUIs) like the iPhone and iPad, UI designers will have a greater responsibility to optimize for orientation-based contexts. As such, it’s quite prescient that today, the folks at Cloud Four demonstrated…

Hard as it may be to believe, we’ve raised $4 million of the $5 million we need to build No Rio’s new home!!!
But we still need another cool million…
We’re moving forward, working closely with New York City’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Department of Design and Construction to build a fantastic new building. DDC will manage construction — they’re already reviewing our architectural and engineering documents, a process that is far more rigorous than we could ever have imagined. Our construction documents should be complete before the year is out.
We could begin construction next summer, but we still need another cool million…
The new ABC No Rio will be spectacular. We’ll have twice as much space for exhibitions, music, performances and other public events. We’re creating spaces especially designed for our projects and programs. The building will be properly sound-proofed and wheelchair accessible.
Our new building will meet the rigorous Passive House energy efficiency standard through a high-performance building envelope with super-insulated walls and a cutting-edge heat-recovery ventilation system. We’ll be significantly more efficient than the state energy code requires. With a green roof, efficient lighting fixtures and controls, triple-paned, low “e-glazed” windows, and low-flow plumbing fixtures the new building will meet the criteria for LEED Silver.
Sustainable design is not just for mind numbing offices and luxury condos. Small grassroots spaces can be the most sustainable.
But… we still need another cool million to make that happen!

Most of last week’s Facebook coverage of focused on Timeline and “real-time apps.” Wasn’t till today that we started to realize just what “real-time apps” actually means: Anything you do, on any app you’ve let connect to Facebook, can be broadcast in realtime.
