Morning Linakge (Mar 12)


A par­tic­u­lar­ly nice ver­sion of the battery/electric ped­al bike. Charges on the flat as well as down hill. Also nice look­ing, I would­n’t be embar­rassed to ride this to town.

I had the International Scout II for a while. I’d pay (some­thing) to have one of these now. The International Wagonmaster. Alas I was too late.

Rendering from Luca Bar. One of the guys who does those neat‑o con­cept pic­tures that the bike mags use to illus­trate their rumor filled, we have noth­ing sub­stan­tial to report, pre­views of the next year’s bikes. This Moto Morini Corsaro Veloce is a fine exam­ple. Spend time look­ing under the projects tab.


Science and Technology

Plant galls. Um, er, not real­ly vil­lain­ous but then again, at the very least alien. Many excel­lent images to give night­mares to the gar­den­ers in the audience.

Organism pro­duced bio­fu­el. A real step for­ward by Nippon and Hitachi using a sin­gle celled organ­ism that lives in ponds. Uh huh, Jet A fuel from pond scum.



What the world eats in a week. This is what glut­tony and par­si­mo­ny look like. In a cou­ple of cas­es the ratio of pack­aged vs. fresh food will sur­prise you. Also the vari­abil­i­ty in the costs. From the book “Hungry Planet” As much as I find the food inter­est­ing, the fam­i­lies are com­pelling ele­ment that keeps you looking.

Fuller ver­sions from Time. Part I and Part II fam­i­lies and their gro­ceries. Part III: mar­kets and cooking.

What did you have for break­fast? The first meal of the day, with­out tableware.


Art, Images, and Design

Ballpoint pen, pen­cil, water­col­or. Huge, grue­some, Grimm fairy­tale, del­i­cate, and detailed all at once. Your myths and night­mares are served up by Caitlin Hackett.

Sick. Gotta love the gen­tle wood­land crea­tures. Grickle. (Music — but that’s the point.)

Paperwar, Papierkrieg. Starting with a cou­ple of paper air­planes and end­ing with, well, I won’t spoil the sur­prise. A broth­er and sis­ter engage in an arms race in fold­ed paper. I know almost noth­ing about the cre­ators except that one of them is named Mattias and he wants to go to film school. (Yelling)

Wondering what is going to hap­pen next. (SFW)

and that ends this week’s thrill ride
