It’s not news, but in America, not all mass shootings are equal.
All the LulzSec team are getting locked up – but not the real criminals. What a waste all round.

I’ve seen Rahul Mehrota speak several times. I most recently saw him at What Design Can Do in Amsterdam – where he described his architecture as a tool to resist the pressure of capital. He used several examples but the one that stuck in my mind was the idea of greening the exteriors of corporate buildings – instead of using nets to stop rioters, use a blanket of plants – but also a system that enables eye contact between gardeners and the board. A useful check for both sides of the coin. Also see his Elephant/Human Housing project.
