» Pollinate new ideas
When we were young, we learned new things every day: that letters turned into words, the world had many countries, numbers had meaning, people had feelings, and limbs could break.
As we got older, sometimes we thought we’d learned all these was to know, or at least all we needed to know. But this is never true, and one of the best ways to learn new concepts is through each other.
Recently, I’ve encountered these new ideas:
» At Melville House, they are publishing select books with accompanying electronic “Illuminations,” supplemental material that complements and enhances the book content
» Lucy and Jorge Orta are producing stunning photographic posters of Amazon life, each linked to a specific meter-square plot of the tropical forest. Poster holders obtain a certificate of moral ownership, committing them to protect that poster/plot in perpetuity and arrange for its inheritance by another willing conservator when they pass on
