The elegant art of not giving a shit

Giving a shit does not necessarily mean you’re doing anything useful, but it makes it seem like you are.

Neues Autodesign: Das Leben, vom Tode her gedacht

Die neuen Autos sind anders. Sie werden, wie vieles zur Zeit, vom Tod her gedacht: Nicht vom möglichen Glück kündet ihre Formensprache, sondern von der Gefahr des Unfalls, des Scheiterns, vom worst case scenario. Der Mini Roadster soll Spaß machen, ja, aber für den Fall, dass er sich überschlägt, hat er zwei verchromte Überrollbügel in Habachtstellung hinter den Kopfstützen stehen; absurde, ständig präsente Skulpturen der Angst. Chromglänzende Mahnungen: Ich mag das Offene, das Abenteuer, sagt das angsthöckerbewehrte Cabrio. Aber nur, solange ich mir keine blutige Nase hole.

Via Neues Autodesign: Das Leben, vom Tode her gedacht, in dem es nur vordergründig um das Automobildesign geht.

Once Upon – today and tomorrow
“Once Upon” are three important contemporary web sites, recreated with technology and spirit of late 1997, according to the memories of Olia Lialina & Dragan Espenschied. They created a 1997 version of Google+, YouTube and facebook, all optimized for Netscape Navigator 4.03, running under Windows 95. Of course you can view them with a browser that still supports HTML Frames. I really love this little detail: the transfer speed of the server is limited to 8 kB/s («dial-up» speed).
