Books lined up on a shelf

Weekend Reading, March 16, 2013

Below are some links to stuff I found interesting this week:

A fun 2-minute video that, if you like dogs, will put a smile on your face.  What happens when engineers own dogs?

Urban Sketchers shared with us the travel hobby of industrial designer Mike Daikubara, who sketches the hotel rooms he stays in while traveling. His sketches are well done, and his process is documented.  Even if you don’t draw this would be a fun project with a camera.  Do you do something like this to document your travels?

Brain Pickings alerts us to a collection of 100 images sent into orbit on the Echostar XVI satellite.There is a quote from the book that provides some of artist Trevor Paglen’s thoughts on the future fate of life on earth.  If you like thinking about the future – 4 billion years into the future – and our place in the universe, you’ll enjoy this piece.

Did something above spark an interest or thought? If so, I’d love to hear from you.

Have a great weekend!
