Millenium People, which is on an Arctic hiatus, but should return after Christmas; a recommended starting point: the data city + jules verne // Serial Consign, Greg Smith (of Vague Terrain) on “digital culture and information design” // Quiet Babylon; as it says, “cyborgs, architects, and our wierd broken future”; recommended for fans of Bruce Sterling // Urban Tick, a research blog coinciding with studies on cycles, rhythms, space, time and technology within the city at CASA // faslanyc, critical commentary on both landscape architecture practice and other commentary on the same (a representative post: Tactics vs. Strategy: What would Juvenille Do?) // dpr-barcelona, mostly pretty pictures, but with enough context to make them informative (for instance: Nicholas Szczepaniak’s gorgeous Blackwater Estuary warning towers) // Inventing Green, Alexis Madrigal on the history of ‘green’ technology (for instance: The Solar Space Race That Never Was) // and, as a brief but entertaining diversion, looks like dune, a tumblr of images which, in aggregate, will remind one of Frank Herbert’s Dune.
