Hansaplast ad

It’s another clever ad. This one really digs into the geist of the moment, so feel special because the robot office workers who replace you won’t get it.

12 months of Helens agree

Nobel Intent: A year in the life of an active volcano:
A series of images from the Mt. St. Helens volcano, which is undergoing massive change turns into a point about the function of governmental science, and how best to promote science and the useful arts while getting the intellectual property back to the financial backers (taxpayers) as quickly as possible. Have I mentioned Ars is fantastic?
Especially since I finally have a link to give when I mention Ooblick and people look at me funny. Growing up at a science museum gives one certain unfounded assumptions about shared experiences and childhood playthings.

My feet hurt.

Today was very nice. I went places. I took pictures!

ABG (I wanted to get photos of the amazing train exhibit, but the volunteer people were down on the idea. It really is worth seeing before it disappears.)

Anti-smoking propaganda

Originally uploaded by Mr. Photocapy.

Where does the smoke go? Only the person smoking is unconcerned.

This considerate smoking agitprop from Japan is pretty great, and leads to a similarly great website that has results about smoking manners.

EDIT: I ripped the site of all the posters and, because I love you, I made an archive for you to download.

Flickr: Why File Sharing Is Bad

Flickr groups (for those of you who have not got religion yet) are an online photo album to which anyone in the group can contribute. Of all the parts of Flickr it is the most wasted (partly because the features need work, partly because it is hard to find new groups, partly because they tend to be drastically over or under moderated.) The most popular groups are naturally the most prosaic since there are more photos which fit into it, but there are smaller groups which have interesting ideas. Why File Sharing is Bad was an idea I liked a whole lot, but unfortunately appears to have died.
