For many people, love signifies a return to values that are represented by childhood and that seem censored by the dried-up, mechanized, adult kinds of coercions of work and rules and responsibilities and impersonality

Too much and for too long, we seemed to have surrendered personal excellence and community values in the mere accumulation of material things. Our Gross National Product, now, is over $800 billion a year, but that Gross National Product—if we judge the United States of America by that—that Gross National Product counts air pollution and cigarette advertising, and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage. It counts special locks for our doors and the jails for the people who break them. It counts the destruction of the redwood and the loss of our natural wonder in chaotic sprawl. It counts napalm and counts nuclear warheads and armored cars for the police to fight the riots in our cities. It counts Whitman’s rifle and Speck’s knife, and the television programs which glorify violence in order to sell toys to our children. Yet the Gross National Product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages, the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials. It measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning, neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country, it measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile.

I discovered a really insightful talk on plastics by Susan Freinkel (who also wrote the above book on the topic) after which grocery bags will never look the same and I'll drink yogurt with slight unease :) I liked her very objective and optimistic stance.

The talk is part of the seminars on long-term thinking hosted by the Long Now Foundation, which aims to promote long-term thinking. 

Long-term as in 10,000 years long :)

Enjoy.

Vector Lovers is a rare discovery. It's music that you can take wherever you go: be it workplaces, sad places, sunny city parks  or late trams home. ♥

Nachtschichten (A, 2010)

My sample size for stating that austrian documentaries about big cities are great just grew by one. Yesterday I saw Nachtschichten in a local cinema. It follows people and their lives on one snowy Berlin night, painting a wonderful, poetic picture of loneliness, big city and a "love statement to the night".

With Moleskines being almost distastefully expensive and local shop not carrying the Daler-Rowney pads I liked, I started looking around for new home for my sketches. And look what I've found: the Düller Memo Pad with its quirky elongated form & the dots that just make it perfect. I guess all my designs will be optimized for wide-screen now :) Hope the cover won't prove too soft.

An evil company is trying to get rich quick, and has no regard for the harm they're doing along the way. It's not making things of value, it's chasing a gold rush. An evil game company isn't really interested in making games, it's too busy playing a game -- a game with the stock market, usually. It views players as weak-minded cash cows; and it views its developers as expendable, replaceable tools to create the machines that milk those cows.

I don't think any organization or any career succeeds if there isn't a goodly amount of old fashioned love involved. And a deep sense of affection for each other, the people you work with….If you can hold onto that and make your decisions with those things in mind, even when they're hard decisions you have to make, I think it's a big difference.

when you don’t create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. your tastes only narrow & exclude people. so create.

A cheeseburger cannot exist outside of a highly developed, post-agrarian society. It requires a complex interaction between a handful of vendors—in all likelihood, a couple of dozen—and the ability to ship ingredients vast distances while keeping them fresh. The cheeseburger couldn’t have existed until nearly a century ago as, indeed, it did not.
