avisos parroquiales

Well, as I've said... I collected several links lately, but I simply don't have time to comment on them. So, I'll just put 'em here with no particular order:

Designers of today is an initiative to engage young designers into charitable work by developing much needed projects on their free time. With that same idea, there's also Design for the world. I think that it is a good way for young graduates to get involved in real projects, and do something useful.

If you believe that your desk is full of gadgets: phone, palm, iPod, webcam, computer, etc, etc... just look at this futuristic office by Eero Saarinen for Harley Earl. (check out the cars too) After that, If you want to redecorate your office with elegant Barcelona Chairs for small clients, you can get this Mini Mies Chair.

To celebrate 8o years of design at Philips a new book will be launched in October as reported by Design Addict. I couldn't find any info on their website about the "Cathedral Radio", but it's quite interesting to read about their design philosophy and approach.

Very odd is the centenial light bulb... (via) A light bulb that has been lit, non stop since 1901. No, it is not a General Electric or Philips bulb. So, no need to rush to buy one of those at the nearest Oxxo. You can watch (or stare) at the web cam... and if you are lucky enough, perhaps you will see it burn out (someday).

A while ago, one of the first internet spam chain letter campaigns was about a vote for the "new 7 wonders" well, it's back again... but now with some millionaires backing up the idea. However, I am not quite happy with all nominees. For example Jorn Utzon's opera house may be nice, but I don't know if it's actually as spectacular as the Great wall of China... which by the way, it is true that it can be seen from space. Check out the high resolution pictures from NASA. Speaking of wich, you can also see that most parts of Mexico are actually greener than many regions of the USA... so, they are the ones sleeping under a cactus and living in a desert. I wonder if the new USA/Mexico "shame" border wall is going to be visible from outer space too.

Now, if you want to see the real Gray's anatomy... you can read the book online.

Last but not least, test your eye sight... and try to spot the designer at albinoblacksheep.
