Free "Ships" Game

PlanetInAction.com has released the first version of a fantastic free simulation game which leverages the browser-based Google Earth plugin as the primary graphics engine. The game is called "Ships" and lets you take the helm on ships - barges, cargo ships, container ships, and even a cruise ship (the QM 2). Everything is in 3D, you can drive the ships anywhere in the world, there are sound effects, physical modeling, and realistic visual effects that makes this a wonder to behold.

NextWorld

My TiVo randomly recorded an episode of a series called "NextWorld". That episode was about future cities and it was really interesting to a geek like myself. During the
show the Science Channel ran a spot shown on Geek Pride Day. I thought it idea was clever and cute, but then again I am a gay geek.

NxtUp...Equal Rights

Prop 'Hate' Upheld in California

"Though widely anticipated, the California Supreme Court's decision today to uphold the November ballot measure that banned gay marriage induced anger, tears and vows to intensify the fight for equal rights for same-sex couples to marry.

Those who supported Proposition 8 at the ballot box hailed the ruling as a defense of traditional values."

“Which one is Lichtenstein?”

"A project done by Pinar Demirdag within the Visibility Absent project that Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam launched in January.
The top works in the Stedelijk’s permanent collection have been away and out of sight for some time now. Visibly Absent is organised by the Stedelijk Museum in collaboration with the Rietveld Academy and the Sandberg Institute to explore ways in which a collection can be out of sight and yet a visible and occasionally surprisingly tangible presence in the city. Currently you can see this work in the streets of Amsterdam in the form of the posters and 6 different light boxes at the Centraal Station".
