It's hard for us satellite-using modern-day humans to conceive of, but there was once a time when we had to imagine what our towns and cities looked like from the sky. In fact, there were famous artists who specialized in creating these panoramic views of Earth. For a time, they were stars. Today, it's a lost art.

This marks the intersection of two of my passions. It was a wonderful read, but I should warn you the story isn't a happy ending. Rather it's an admission of defeat and a demonstration that some countries in the world have a ways to go in understanding common resources. The idea that a company could patent something freely shared with them, thus driving the originator of the work out for fear of being sued is a new low for us.

I suspect we will end up soliciting help from those so called 3rd world countries who ignore our patents and claims to the world's common resources. Please keep planting and sharing your seeds, we will need them someday.

Until then free the seeds! Let them be our moral dissenters to the law by doing what seeds do best: ensuring the future for their parents.
Could "open source" join the ranks of food labeling like "organic" and "fair trade"? Revolutionizing American agribusiness from the ground up, one seed at a time.

Why Should We Look At The Clouds More Often? #npr
You don't need to plan a trip to find beauty and perspective. Just look up, says Gavin Pretor-Pinney, and stop for a moment every day to admire the beauty in the sky above and in our everyday lives.
