Postscripts I
Tourism Infrastructure

In lieu of a set of Prunings, here's the first entry for our new irregular feature, Postscripts.

#1: Vis-à-vis Hu Yang's photodocumentary on Shanghai living, see Michael Wolf's own investigation into density in Hong Kong.

#2: Remember how we were hysterically lamenting over the demise of the ACEMVD's Visual Images Database? Apparently, it wasn't defunct; it was simply being moved to a new server.

#3: And remember Hal the Coyote? He died only a week after his capture just as he was being prepared for release. Cause of death: “heartworm infection and internal bleeding caused by his ingestion of rodent poison,” which were exacerbated by the “stress of captivity and handling during the release.” Poor fella.

#4: The first Edible Estate was in Salina, Kansas. For the second Fritz Haeg chose a site owned by the Foti Family in Los Angeles. And then The New York Times came for a visit.

#5: After reading our post on the Leidenfrost Fountain, phronesisaical reminisced about their trip to Nepal where they encountered water moving uphill.

#6: We asked: Is there a medianeras Flickr Pool? Yes. In fact, there are two: Medianeras and The Unconscious Art of Demolition. So go now and contribute.

  • The location of the photo is from the Meteor Crater visitor centre in Arizona, looking north I think.

  • Sure thing. I took almost the exact same photo, centered more on the mtns in the left of the frame.
