Tweenbots!: What would you do if a cute little anthropomorphized robot asked you for help finding its way across a busy New York City Park?

Over the course of the following months... the Tweenbots were successful in rolling from their start point to their far-away destination assisted only by strangers... Never once was a Tweenbot lost or damaged. Often, people would ignore the instructions to aim the Tweenbot in the “right” direction, if that direction meant sending the robot into a perilous situation. One man turned the robot back in the direction from which it had just come, saying out loud to the Tweenbot, "You can’t go that way, it’s toward the road.”


Amazing photographs from Danish photographer Peter Funch. From Boing Boing: "(He) stakes New York City street corners out for two weeks at a time, taking pictures of passersby from the very same spot. He then uses Photoshop to composite the results into single images."


Also from Boing Boing, a collection of found quotes on the internet.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
