created at: 04/29/2012

Danish design firm Monstrum, founded by Ole B. Nielsen and Christian Jensen, has dedicated itself to creating safe, stimulating, and beautifully designed playgrounds for children. They say, "playground design should be a reflection of the world surrounding us. We see the world as a place full of colour...Why only play on a monky frame and a sandbox, when you can play in a moon crater or a submarine or a giant spider or an enormous snail or a Trojans horse or a rocket or an ant or a princess castle.

created at: 04/26/2012

There's a current micro-meme that's found its way all over Facebook and the blogosphere, in which there appears a relatively generic alphabetical list of somewhat less-than-dominant foods with the title, "The 100 Foods You Should Eat Before You Die."

In the words of Time magazine's Josh Ozersky, the list "looks like it took about six minutes to think up. You could have created the whole thing while listening to 'Aqualung.' It’s simply a bunch of unconnected foods, listed alphabetically, without any kind of qualifier.… read more
