This is going to be a very long hard week. My bosses agreed that I can work as many hours as I can stand, preloading the 80 hour workweek into this week. It’s a good deal, I’ll get to take off most of next week — working only monday before going to the airport and picking up Liz. Mag’s will beat her, coming in on Saturday in Los Angeles. So Bob gets to go up to LA, get his parents, wait a few hours, and then get the young adult who used to be a kid.
So instead of writing longer essays, I’m going to share a few special links with you all. First is a fantastic project, creating a light cube. I want to build one of these. But I’m going to start with a smaller 3×3 version. Take a look at the video’s, it’s an amazing piece of engineering — hardware and software combined.
Next link involves a great illustration about the power of public transportation. Click on the picture, I find it a great illustration. Wish it were easier for me to take public transportation. The problem is 20 – 30 minute one way drive versus 2 hours each way bike / bus / train / walking commute. While I was more tired (with 4 hours commuting and a very early getting up time); I was also healthier. http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2013/11/the-case-against-cars-in-1-utterly-entrancing-gif/281615/
The last link is much more disturbing. Basically it describes how our current system of economic rewards matches the feudal system. Worth reading or at least looking at the pictures.
