NEW Blog Post: Living at a Time of Post Natural Ecologies.

When technologies converge from rapidly fermenting disciplines like biology, information science and nanotech, the results become hard to predict. Singularities can emerge that create outcomes we cannot always anticipate. Rachel Armstrong explores this phenomenon in today’s essay, a look at emerging meta-technologies that are themselves life-like in their workings. The prospects for new forms of design in our living spaces, including future spacecraft environments, are profound, as ongoing work in various venues shows. - See more at: http://earth2hub.com/blog/living_at_a_time_of_post_natural_ecologies

+Brian Federal thanks Brian, and thanks Earth 2 Hub - i managed to get it on my tablet in the end - have already access on the lap-top but it's nice to be able to tune in anywhere! Thanks for your response :-) I love these ideas on how to grow houses - like the 'hoves' I wrote about in 1972, in my story Journey to Blissland - in which a Hove was a cross between a hive and a dome, like a bender but covered in turf and grass, seen from the air as little mounds of earth.  I was probably most inspired by the Middle Earth hobbit homes described by J R R Tolkein in 'The Lord of the Rings (which I read first, in 1968) and subsequently 'The Hobbit'. More recently they've been dubbed Wofati - but these are more angular, complete eco-systems with drainage, self perpetuating in energy and water collection and maintaining a healthy dry atmosphere, plus having the possibility of a greenhouse-style growroom. 
In the story I wrote the Blisslanders lived in their hoves, pure and simply, but gathered in communal structures and all their growing was done outside, in a subtle, companion planting manner that was less obvious as, based on nature's forestry principle, and permaculture,  it was apparently haphasard - but in fact carefully designed, so that species could help, protect, nourish and screen one another, and make use of different cycles of foliage, flowering, and fruiting, in order to best manage the available hours and intensity of sunlight and the temperature and humidity of the seasons. Growing a house is not just a building, or aesthetic architecture, it's holistic integrated architecture, growing a lifestyle!
One thing I would like to do on Flipboard, as I'm new to flipping content from eg Earth 2 Hub or other articles, is to be ableto delete comment or content from my magazines.  Due to the new tablet and problems with the text entry setting, I had some duplicated pages and some errors that I wanted to rectify, but I think that was more a case of geting used to the tablet than Flipboard per se.

On This Day: Stephen Hawking was born on 8 January 1942 - Happy Birthday!

Stephen William Hawking is an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge. Among his significant scientific works have been a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. Hawking was the first to set forth a cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. He is a vocal supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.
