I especially enjoy cartoons set on the street because the street is a common denominator, the basic turf of life where nothing is hidden and everyone passes by. - John Callahan

Where our stuff comes from 

If we want to be more sustainable and truly understand the battle for resources that drives much of our global politics then it is vital that we understand where things come from. Too often we are left in the dark only seeing the end product and having no regard for the amount of work and disruption this one item has caused to countless lives and environments thousands of miles away.

A building that will last 100,000 years 

How do you build a structure of that permanence. Most of what we build is destroyed or catabolyzed in much shorter time spans. This building for storing nuclear waste brings about a new temporal relationship between man and nature. It is a challenge for the ages, quite literally. It will take over 100 years to actually build the facility so no one working on it now will probably be alive to see it completed. It is called Onkalo, or cavity in Finnish. This project is explored in Michael Madsen’s film, ‘Into Eternity’.

Recording DVDs

Remember when there was DVD+R and DVD-R? Those days were confusing, no one knew which burner their computer had. Macs were usually DVD-R. PCs were all over the place and a lucky few had dual burners.

If you can’t explain it simply, then you don’t understand it well enough. -Einstein
