» Curio City

Which is also known on the tubes as CurioCity.org.

Here you'll find the flotsam and jetsam from the collisions between my interests and the Internet, a bit of cosmic debris, and the small, crunchy bits that collect in the gutters of my mind. If you like what you find, you may also like the longer original works at Hidden City. On the other hand, if you are interested in the person behind this collection, you can find out more than you need to know here, or find my on seemingly numberless services as mkhall. And if you are the person who likes to do such things, you can leave me a message at 786/664-7070.

Amtrak is giving 24 people a ‘writer’s residency’ on its trains | The Verge

Nön-pröfit

This certainly makes me reconsider my love of cheap RTA furniture and those tasty, tasty meatballs. Why is Ikea a Non-profit?

Bardabunga

I love Iceland. I love volcanoes. Ergo, I love these photos of Iceland’s Bardabunga volcano erupting.

Now this is a rug that would tie the room together! The rolling planchette coffee table is a bonus.

Six Spaces

This is from 2007, but I think it is still a valid definition of the types of social media environments. Can anyone think of something which doesn’t fit into any of these categories?

Every Monday I’ll be sending out a list of the previous week’s Brainfeed entries. It should appear first thing each Monday morning, but your mileage may vary; best laid plans, and all that.

Lighthouse HQ

The US Federal government is selling off obsolete lighthouses. Should one not attract a buyer, they will give it away to someone willing to maintain it for historic purposes.
