The Tiny House movement is one that really interests me, especially given a few of the other videos I have shared over the years. The idea of utilizing even the smallest of spaces effectively and in some cases making it ultra-livable plays at my minimalist heart strings. Hank’s journey takes an architecture degree and uses it to create a mobile living space inside a old school bus. This video is a discussion of the project as a whole, but there is a lot of great information about the project and the subsequent cross-country trip—in addition to images and deeper discussions—on Hank’s website.
Did the Internet community peak at bookmarks? Asked in a different and perhaps more complete way: just as technologies like RSS and email in their purest forms are hard to beat even as technology marches forward, what better technology exists to keep track of information on the ever-expanding Internet than bookmarks? Taken a step further, what better way to share the bookmarked information than a site of your own? As such, I‘ve been reading, which is why I write now.
Working in and having a passion for libraries, I am struck by the fact that the way bookmarks work in the physical world is not directly analogous to bookmarks in the digital world. Bookmarks in the digital world are instead like dog-eared pages or highlighted passages; if you think of the Internet as a single tome, that is. In any case, anything that moves you to deface a book should probably be shared or become immortalized in some other way than just a reference for a future version of yourself.
