Massive Change : the future of global design

    there's this show up at the Vancouver Art Gallery called massive change that i sooo wanna see. the girl has gone a couple few times now and raves about it.

    "Massive Change:The Future of Global Design is an exhibition that will change the way you think about design just as contemporary design is changing the way we live in the world." (from the gallery site.)

    as i understand it, it's about the design of the world. not the world of design. unfortunately, it's not coming here to SF.

    apparently, amazon still owns the patent to impulse shopping

    Judge's Ruling Spares 1-Click: "theodp writes "Agreeing with Amazon’s characterization of its 1-Click feature as a feature of an electronic product ordering system and not an electronic fund transfer or transaction system, a Judge has tossed out a $50M lawsuit that threatened Amazon's 1-Click patent. But outside of Court, Amazon touts its patent-pending Amazon Honor System as a way for Web sites to use 1-Click shopping technology for voluntary payment transactions - most notably for 9-11 donations and campaign contributions - that do not involve consumer goods or Amazon-specified prices, which the Judge argues are essential 1-Click ingredients.""

    the best tv moment i’ve ever seen

    available for download from here (as well as other places on the web):

    "Jon Stewart goes on Crossfire, one of our vapid political “debate” shows and asks them, plainly, to stop hurting America, to leave the side of the politicians and the corporations and start working for the people. "(nod.)

    my favourite moment is one that didn't actually get many laughs. "i always thought in a democracy, and again i don't really know because i've only lived here, that in a democracy ..." hilarity.
