This is the most impressive business car I’ve ever seen - it’s mine. It took me 25 years to design this.

My ninjas, please. Dude needs take a deep breath or something.

Western Style Philanthropy


Michele Fugiel poses some great questions about the private quality of "western" style philanthropy.

Why do we separate how money is injected to non-profits and profits from a role that quite often elsewhere is closely associated with the priorities of the government?

Foundation resources are money that would otherwise be added to federal and state treasuries, money otherwise taxed and used for public benefit. For this reason alone, the public should know more about how foundations are managed. (mitpress looks into "deep diversity")

Is there room for change? Big ups to Pierre and Pam Omidyar for "unleashing human potential" (among the other most generous 49 philanthropists) and Jeff Skoll for initiating Social Edge.

Could an Amazon share algorithms with a Pandora? An Amazon branched with a Pandora couldn’t happen because Amazon is Amazon, however to think that there couldn’t be an Panazon is ridiculous. How can market data be shared to promote social entrepreneurialism?


Knowing how the art business revolves one could go out on another limb and wonder why types of "museums" are the beginning and end recipients of "arts benefaction"… who’s in the middle you ask? Thousands if not millions of well-trained artists who do not know that they are artists…..

When given a theoretical $100 billion and asked how hea€™d spend it, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales offers the profound a€" and controversial a€" idea of distributing funds widely and letting people decide what they need on their own, even if ita€™s another Jack Daniels. via

EPOC by Emotiv


The worlda€™s first thought-controlled computer game could be launched by the end of the year.

A new headset being developed by an Australian company may soon replace joysticks and Wii handles.

The EPOC headset has 16 sensors which measure electrical activity in the brain, allowing players to push and pull objects on a screen just by thinking.

Despite scepticism among some experts, EmotivAA -AA the Sydney-based company behind the headsetAA -AA claims it has carried out pre-release tests which show that the electroencephalography process works.

Emotiv co-founders Allan Snyder, a neuroscientist and former Cambridge University research fellow, and Tan Le are confident the technology can take gaming from the Wii to the next stage.

Tan Le said: a€This is the tip of the iceberg. There will be a convergence of gesture-based technology and the brain as a new interfaceAA -AA the Holy Grail is the mind.a€™

The theory behind the headset was predicted by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata at the video games industrya€™s annual E3 conference.

He said: a€As soon as we think something in our brain, it will appear within a video game. Youa€™ll probably need to wear a kind of hat or helmet or something.a€™

Dairy Jewelery


Milk Pearls? Really? I can see it now - this will be replacing ‘ice’ around ninjas’ necks soon enough:

‘yo yo, check out my milk, my ninja…’

French design collective Duende have used a technique that can transform human or animal milk into plastic by solidifying the casein content. The ‘Perle de lait’ range of jewelry will be on display as part of their collection of objects exploring the relationship of food between mother and child at La Cuisine. This takes the concept of bespoke jewelry to whole new level.

Mystery on Fifth Avenue


THINGS are not as they seem in the 14th-floor apartment on upper Fifth Avenue. At first blush the family that occupies it looks to be very much of a type. The father, Steven B. Klinsky, 52, runs a private equity company; the mother, Maureen Sherry, 44, left her job as a managing director for Bear Stearns to raise their four young children (two boys and two girls); and the dog, LuLu, is a soulful Lab mix rescued from a pound in Louisiana.

They are living in a typical habitat for the sort of New Yorkers they appear to be: an enormous a€™20s-era co-op with Central Park views (once part of a triplex built for the philanthropist Marjorie Merriweather Post), gutted to its steel beams and refitted with luxurious flourishes like 16th-century Belgian mantelpieces and custom furniture made from exotic woods with unpronounceable names.

But some of that furniture and some of those walls conceal secrets a€" messages, games and treasures a€" that make up a Rube Goldberg maze of systems and contraptions conceived by a young architectural designer named Eric Clough, whose ideas about space and domestic living derive more from Buckminster Fuller than Peter Marino.

The apartment even comes with its own book, part of which is a fictional narrative that recalls a€oeThe Da Vinci Codea€A (without the funky religion or buckets of blood) and a€oeFrom the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler,a€A the childrena€™s classic by E. L. Konigsburg about a brother and a sister who run away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and discover a€" and solve a€" a mystery surrounding a Renaissance sculpture. It has its own soundtrack, too, with contributions by Kate Fenner, a young Canadian singer and songwriter with a lusty, alternative, Joni Mitchell-ish sound, with whom Mr. Clough fell in love during the project. via
