Years ago my modular thinking programmer brain caused me to propose a LEGO building interoperability standard to Jon Palmer. After a great discussion with some great people the LEGO "Moonbase" standard was born.
Now my brain has done it again with the "8x8x8 Cube" Modular Construction standard. I've started a Flickr group for pictures and discussion: http://www.flickr.com/groups/2580208@N20/

I'm not making this up.

1) Trees share resources over fungus networks based on who needs it most
2) Dying trees move their legacy resources back into the community
when they pass on.

In response to my students who wanted to know why the need to learn about the emergence of the public sphere in early modern European print culture, I created this 13 minute video about why knowing the history of the public sphere matters in the Internet age.

Story
Introduction
Paul B. Hartzog, one of the coiners of the word "panarchy," is an independent scholar and hacker, who has taught at the University of Michigan's School of Information. Recipient of an NSF IGERT to study complex systems, he has a Masters in Globalization and Environmental Politics from the University of Utah, and a Masters in Political Theory from the University of Michigan.  His work on panarchy hybridizes political philosophy / economy, network culture, complex systems, and critical social theory. Paul was a cofounder of The Future Forward Institute and The Forward Foundation, think-tanks dedicated to developing both theory and tools. His work history includes Howard Rheingold, Stanford University, the University of Michigan, and The Institute for the Future. He lives in Asheville, NC, with his wife and two sons.
