Spectacular food packaging decays with its contents
Swedish design studio Tomorrow Machine believes that the relationship between food and packaging should be symbiotic, with containers surviving only as long as their contents. In a vividly colored series entitled “This Too Shall Pass,” the company showcases three items, each of which looks more like an ornament than a household product.

Yes please more of this thank you!

Reclaiming Our (Real) Lives From Social Media →

thinkupapp:

Nick Bilton captures the heart of what motivates us to build ThinkUp:

Now, it’s all social media all the time. At the end of the day, what do I have to show for it? Am I more enriched as a human being after a couple of hours spent on Facebook? More fulfilled from Pinterest? A deeper person from Instagram?

This is a critical question to ask, and frankly one that many of the people who create these social networks aren’t asking often enough. Of course, many will say “So how could the answer be even *more* technology?”

The answer is that the problem isn’t technological in nature: It’s social. It’s simply a matter of being thoughtful and mindful about the way we spend our time, and the way we interact with each other. These are themes that transcend technologies and fads.

It’s really gratifying to see this idea getting mainstream coverage, and we hope this becomes a fundamental part of the way people talk about new technologies and the industry that creates them. And of course, we hope you’ll give ThinkUp a try and see if it doesn’t help you feel better about all the time you’re spending on these networks.

Really dig what thinkupapp seems to be about. And extra brownie points for disclosing their funding structure: http://blog.thinkup.com/post/64323671907/thank-you-to-everyone-whos-invested-in-our-success That is amazing in and of itself.
And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

Trevor Paglen - They Watch the Moon (2010)

"This photograph depicts a classified ‘listening station’ deep in the forests of West Virginia.

The station is located at the center of the National Radio Quiet Zone, a region of approximately 34,000 square kilometers in West Virginia and parts of Maryland.

Within the Quiet Zone, radio transmissions are severely restricted: omnidirectional and high-powered transmissions (such as wireless internet devices and FM radio stations) are not permitted.

The listening station, which forms part of the global ECHELON system, was designed in part to take advantage of a phenomenon called moonbounce.

Moonbounce involves capturing communications and telemetry signals from around the world as they escape into space, hit the moon, and are reflected back towards Earth.

The photograph is a long exposure under the full moon light.”
