I saw this article in my newsfeed today, and it surprised me to find that Italian typewriter designer Ettore Sottsass had designed houses too, with over 20 homes in his portfolio. I figured this would be an article that Ton Sison would dig, so I went to his blog (i dream lo-tech) to post it for him to read, and guess what I found…Yup, we’ve lost one of the great early Typosphere blogs, apparently some time ago, and we didn’t even notice. What happened? I dunno. I hope Ton’s ok, maybe off on some important adventure, I hope. It’s one thing to have a Typosphere blog fall off the update list because of inactivity, but to have it completely vanish is a great loss. I do miss Ton’s content and conversations, and I do hope we hear from him soon..
The New Hampshire Primaries closed tonight, and I’m a really happy guy. I don’t normally wear my politics in the blog, and I’m not going to do so in any really annoying way, but here’s a sneak peek at my dream election:
Yeah, if the NH Primaries are any kind of indication of what we’ll see in the general election, It’s gonna be one of those once-in-a-lifetime political shows where instead of a choice between 2 evils you just can’t care about, you get all the absurd entertainment of a completely ridiculous clown getting beat like a gong by a guy who actually has a good chance at making this country a better, fairer place to live.
Which is which? Well, I’m sure you can figure it out.
