This small stick is a 2 terabyte SSD!

Remember just around a decade back when 32GB pen drives were all the rage? I remember owning one from Transcend, and it was the size of my thumb. It was a gift I got myself before going to college, and for the longest time, had all my college work stored on it until I had enough money to chip in for an external hard drive (these were the Bittorent days).The Fledging Shell is slightly larger than that 32GB pen drive I owned back in the day. It also happens to have a storage capacity of 2 whole te...

The Ortwo ‘singlehandedly’ changes how we crush pepper!

From the minds that brought you the Nutella Spatula, the Levoons, and the Levoop (which is a part of our Black Friday Gift List) comes the new innovative way to crush your peppercorns!

These Argentine Arts Workers Have Been Spending A Year Fighting Sexism In Their Industry — Have They Made Progress?

“Calling themselves Nosotras Proponemos (nP), meaning ‘we propose,’ the group [of 100 women] published a manifesto-like list of 37 demands, asking that women receive equal representation in exhibitions, collections, and leadership positions in Argentina’s arts sector. One year later, nP is celebrating the significant changes their activism has made in Argentina’s art world” — even as much work remains to be done.

“The judges in the front row were ready to revel in wretchedness, line by line and verse by verse, as the contestants, more than 30 Columbia University students in a lecture hall on the campus, read their poems aloud.” (In case you’ve forgotten, Kilmer is the man who perpetrated “I think that I shall never see / A poem lovely as a tree.” He is memorialized with a rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike.)

Did Britpop Lead To Brexit?

What Britpop originally was – a way of reclaiming an identity for gaudy, magpieish British music from the grey blanket of grunge, then slapped on the cover of   – was not what it became. Of course it wasn’t: the essence of every pop movement is altered by exposure, when it becomes about its consumers’ interpretations rather than its creators’ intentions. Punk went from art school kids seeking to shock to blokes with mohicans drinking cider outside shopping centres. Britpop went from something ar...

In recent years desktop CNC milling's barrier to entry has been lowered, thanks to a rash of Chinese-made machines that can be had for a seeming bargain. But as ShopBot Tools founder Ted Hall points out in "All Desktop CNCs Are Not Created Equal," CNC mills are like many other power tools: You get what you pay for.

Claim: Arts Degrees Promise “Unrealistic” Job Prospects

“Arts and media does stand out as the area where there is greatest mismatch between the numbers of students taking the courses and the employment prospects at the end. There is a point up to which courses that engage learners have value, but ultimately there have to be viable prospects at the end.”

Why Silicon Valley Tech Giants Are Drawn To China’s Future

China’s rise as a tech powerhouse has dovetailed with Silicon Valley’s growing, and often vividly expressed, distrust toward democracy itself. Always steeped in libertarian pique—not long ago, technologists expressed hope for floating ad-hoc nation-states or, as Larry Page put it, referencing Burning Man, “some safe places where we can try out some new things”— Silicon Valley now toys with Californian secessionism and Singapore-style authoritarian technocracy. That new horizon, that place of rau...

How Music Choice Resets A Silent Movie

When it comes to silent film, accompanists have infinite choices. Even in the early days of cinema, accompanists could improvise, select pieces from their own libraries, follow suggestions from cue sheets, or use the scores that came with some big-budget pictures, or any combination of these. Today, some accompanists try to recreate the sound of early cinema in their own performances, while others revel in using music that has been created since then.
