I just launched my new project on Kickstarter. If you share my feelings about developing local food systems, using crowdfunding to shape communities, or, even better, you live in West Town, Chicago and you want a grocery store at 2036 W Division St. then I hope you will back this project.
Plenty is a neighborhood tailored, locally focused grocery and deli. Catering to health conscious residents and those with underrepresented diets; and supporting regional farmers, urban food projects and small batch producers.
Pitchfork/Flatstock 2010 Recap - Ready for 2011
As we start pulling out our neon short-shorts, bandanas, sunglasses & fanny packs, and begin to cover our Northern white bodies in SPF 50 in preparation for the 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival / Flatstock #30, taking place this weekend (there are still tickets left, maybe), we'd like to take a look back at last year's festival and share some, of the really hard work we put into entertaining the world. So, without further self-adoration we present Flatstock, 2010 a video by The Post Family.
Mark Brickey from Hero Design Studio & the family festival team take you around Flatstock #26 at Pitchfork Music Festival 2010. Along the way we check in with some of the world class "designers" in the gig poster scene to find out who's tracing, and who's makin' a buck off bootleg merchandise. We talk with some of the long-timers -- the great gig poster makers who've been around even before Arcade Fire needed posters, as well as a newcomer. Most of all we have some fuckin' fun.Read More
Apple Knowledge Navigator
A video that was made for Apple when John Sculley was CEO. An early Siri prototype. It blows my mind how far we've come and how un-Apple this video is.

This one is for Alex.
Make your own record
"In an effort to boldly 3D print where no man or woman has 3D printed before, I've created a technique for converting digital audio files into 3D printable 33rpm records and printed some functional prototypes over the weekend. These records play on regular turntables, with regular needles, at regular speeds, just like any vinyl record."

Hands down the best digital article in a newspaper I have ever seen. A beautiful sad story told in a way that really truly embodies what technology can do. Bravo, New York Times.
