Forecasting the Future?

philipdickmnp.jpg

Many scenarios dictate how people could act or may think, and people use these data sets to forecast the future.

Forecasting is the process of estimation in unknown situations. An art or a science?

Have you ever tried to predict the weather (wisdom of clouds theory)?
Presently there is a lot research circling around how shopping, search and publishing are going to play out under the producer driven present economy.
Some approach forecasting from the standpoint that all things are random and as a result we can’t predict randomness, so forecasting is not possible. Or like Disney, the future is a thing of the past, so why try to imitate the real future?
With most efforts leading towards understanding where earthquakes and tsunamis will hit next, it looks like manerisms rule in the meantime..

He who speaks about the future lies, even when he tells the truth. via

Oxygen Solar

Solar power, which some hold out as a promising form of alternative energy, may have just become a lot more practical.

A researcher at MIT has developed a catalyst that he says can generate oxygen from a glass of water by splitting water molecules. His colleagues say that one simple step could lead to an efficient a€" and cheap a€" method of storing energy from the sun. consumeraffairs

Ninja Homes: House L

pott_house_l-5.jpg

Located in Glienicke - a German municipality located north or Berlin - House L is a sustainable [read : minimum impact], site-integrated home for a family of four, designed by AMNP‘s ADLS 08.10.2007 : Pott Architects.

The house literally folds up out of the landscape - constructed at the top of a hill, House L is embedded in the hillside and looks back out over the sloping forest terrain. Beyond the views it frames down the slope, this connection to the terrain also allowed the house to have a minimum impact on the existing site. The surrounding landscape was preserved as much as possible, creating a building that now seems to exist as a part of the local forest, instead of appearing as an outside insertion upon the land.

The objective was a house designed sensitively enough to harmonize with its natural surroundings, leaving intact the mature trees and the whole forest-like atmosphere of the setting. The building was to feel wide open to the changing natural seasons and the sunlight, drawing them close to the family’s everyday home life [via Pott Architects].

While I’ve been unable to find plans/sections of the house, the rooms seem to be organized so that the public space - kitchen, dining + living rooms - are all within a large, bright, open space that looks out over the landscape, while the more private spaces - bed + bath rooms - are ‘buried’ within the hillside.
