The Three Most Wonderful Things I Have Seen This Week

Unless you exist in a primitive society that is not ruled by blogs, surely you are aware of my rise in recent months to prominence as Contributing Editor of Laughing Squid. As a member of the ruling elite of the blogosphere, I see things. Some of them are wonderful and I’d like to share them with you.

The Long Now is Building a 10,000 Year Clock in Texas Mountain–This is kind of a big deal. The Long Now Foundation, the future-positive group made up of various luminaries including Sir Brian Eno, is building a clock that will keep time for 10,000 years.

Plus Pool, a Proposal for a Public Pool Floating in a New York City River–A brilliant solution for New York’s sweltering summers. Let’s hope the Kickstarter raises more than 10 grand.

Dear Photograph, Then and Now Photos of Old Snapshots–There’s something wonderfully eery about taking an old snapshot back to its original context and taking a photo of it. Also it’s dammned hard to explain in writing. Go look at it.
