Eric Standley is vibing on some divine inspiration with his impossibly intricate stained-glass windows made entirely from cut paper. They seem way more mystical and mandala-like than they are institutional.
I just hung out at the Baltimore Free Farm, an ambitious and multi-faceted permaculture farm in the middle of Baltimore City. Most exciting is their plans to have a sustainable prawn-farming facility, where shrimp will consume compost and vegetable waste and provide fertilizers for the farm with their own waste and a healthy and delicious protein source for people.

Mary H.K. Choi just had an article in Wired about how we all secretly aspire to be pirates, and that freelancers are a form of modern day pirates. For me, I guess it depends on whether or not you are playing by your own rules or by someone else’s (like a client).
