Other Ten Percent 10/25/12

Oct 25 2012

You know, I kind of have deja-vu that I said this exact same thing last year basically but it occurs to me that I’ve now been doing Dance Party at the End of the World out here in SF for longer than I did it in NY and the bit is kinda getting too high concept even for me at this point having accreted even more backstory over the years from all the other parties. I think next year I’m going to do this one more time, hopefully with some mutli-city stuff going on, and then move on to other party ideas or something. Also I guess we can talk about the links I round up for you guys that’s the actual reason you’re here. Links!

Showtime: Anna Kulik, Inder Shergill and Petr Novikov, “Stone Spray”
If you want to get super rich be 10 years younger than me and go into material sciences. Bruce Sterling just threw out like half a dozen ways to make millions in chemistry in a 3D printing future.

Orbital Habitat concept had supercomputer, dolphins
Somewhere in the multiverse this has to have actually happened right? Because if so I’m going to figure out how to hop between dimensions RIGHT NOW.

The Jerks Who Bombed the Parthenon
Not sure how this didn’t get a secret history tag because I had NO IDEA this was a thing. Once again my european history knowledge is woefully lacking between “pilgrims” and “we can back to save everybody’s asses in WW1.”

Tom Hanks’ ‘Full House’ Slam Poem of the Day
Anybody else get the feeling that Tom Hanks has suddenly figured out that there’s basically nothing he can do to not be the biggest movie star in the world anymore. I mean everybody who could make an argument for the title has sort of crazied their way out of the running in the last few years so there’s basically nothing Hanks could say that people could latch onto as “hey, a movie star isn’t supposed to act like that!”

Tiny clip-on camera for lifelogging
So going to their kickstarter this is WAY too expensive for what it is but this sure looks exactly like a device we’re all going to own by the end of the decade.

Showtime: 2012 Japan Juggling Festival Championship
Weirdly despite having absolutely no tech art components this video of a dude just juggling is the most logical thing for Bruce Sterling to post. There’s something about the devotion to craft here that makes it a weird kindred spirit to AR stuff. Also, for reference this was at the Japan Juggling Festival so that audience this guy is wowing is made up almost entirely of OTHER JUGGLERS.
