Some Of Our Favorite Links

 

  1. This link is getting a bit dated. But we love Carmel, Indiana (pronounced like the candy wouldn't you know). In 2012 it was voted America's best place to live! Read how rich white people select a city full of rich white people as where they'd like most to live.
  2. Some favorite places to unwind and think are 4Chan, Found Magazine, Life Hacker, CllickHole......
  3. Arfie's pick of the show. This is the grand daddy of all of the West Highland clubs founded by old Colonel Malcolm of Poltalloch himself. Somewhat elitist in its membership - one needs nominated and seconded by a club member. Anyone that can help Arfie get in should send us an email.
  4. So Tasmania now has a renowned (at least by some) museum. The Museum of New and Old Art (MONA). It is on our list to visit. Check it out MONA here.
  5. Olia Lianlina was a pioneering NetArt creator. She still is one of the greatest. Her website is filled with wonderful NetArt. Check out Teleportacia here. Read Lianlina's essay Turing Complete User. It is a thought provoking discussion on the role and definition of a computer 'user'.
  6. One of Miami's most exhuberant places is the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). Located of Biscayne Ave in Museum Park this beautiful place always as something going on. The prices are cheap ($12-$16) and admission is free the second Saturday of each month. If you live here go and go often. If you are visiting, it will be a highlight of your trip. Checkout their current programs at PAMM.
  7. The the big city galleries have some great shows going this Winter/Spring.
