With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility: Are Social Media Anti-Social?

Well written. On my side, I don’t think it makes me less social. I use WP, FB, and everything else as a means to facilitate the popularity of my blog. When a social situation in “real life” pops up, no way am I going to say, “Sorry, I have to talk to all these other people I haven’t met, I don’t have time for you, here, now.” By the by, FB is also very useful for event planning and homework help. ; )

Fabian Oefner – Where Science and Art Meet

  • Xacto knife or other precision cutting tool
  • Cutting surface
  • Light wire, found here
  • Light bulb

IQ lamps were first invented by Holger Strom in 1973, and they’re great for all sorts of special events and for softening the atmosphere of any room. Strom was a designer by trade and came up with this lamp in his own free time after being inspired by another lamp requested by a client.
