Inviting the bell ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
http://bit.ly/1hOGCQa

May the sound of this bell penetrate deeply into the cosmos.
In even the darkest spots, may living beings hear it clearly
so their suffering will cease,
understanding arise in their hearts,
and they can transcend the path of anxiety and sorrow.

Namo Shakyamunaye Buddha.

Thich Nhat Hanh

from the book "Stepping into Freedom: An Introduction to Buddhist Monastic Training"

The idea is to build  a bar inside a library. A library that holds books on how to build, rebuild, and maintain a civilization. The 3,000 volume library is called the Manual for Civilization. The books are a backdrop to conversations that take place in this salon facilitated by aged alcohol and tea. Members of this salon (which is open to the public) can keep a bottle of drink, or a canister of tea, on a shelf, and the drink will be brought down and served on your behalf. The other half of this space is a small museum of parts of the 10,000-year clock which is being built to tick inside a mountain in western Texas. This one-of-a-kind hangout place is called the Interval, and it is being built right next to Greens restaurant in Fort Mason, San Francisco. The Interval is project by the Long Now Foundation (I am a board member) to foster long-term thinking. I have a liter of Puer tea on hold when it is done. I hope to meet you there one evening. If you'd like to join as a member, sign up below. BTW, the drink keep (inspired by the Japanese local bar) is a great idea for those who don't live in San Francisco, but occasionally visit.

The coming battery boom will need better software, sensors & data

Before we get drowned in cheap batteries, we’ll need better software to monitor and manage them, both optimizing their batteries use and keeping them safe.

I often feel like the battery life of my electronics doesn't hold up to the tech they power.
