Meanings do evolve. People think evolution is about how things change, but evolution is at least as much about how things stay the same over time. Evolution is really about the tension between stability and change. Semiotics as the study of how meaning evolves offers us scientific hints at the relationship between stability and change

How do I search multiple tags in my tumblr blog

Eg. I want to search my posts that have both the tag ambient and abstract

http://johntropea.tumblr.com/tagged/abstract
http://johntropea.tumblr.com/tagged/ambient

I can do it on tumblr, but I can't limit it to just my blog

Cool gov collaboration to make something work

"...doctors at the Boston Medical Center can now prescribe $5 bike memberships to their low-income patients. Once they print out the Prescribe-A-Bike prescription, the patients can either call the city to register, or walk across the street to the Boston University transportation office and sign up right there. A free helmet and key fob arrive a few days later in the patients’ mail."

Also some investigating on best way to get adoption

"By keeping our supply chain domestic and our production line queued with made-to-order bags, we’re able to respond immediately to market changes, without wasting time or money on large inventories, redundant shipping, or simply guessing wrong about sales"
