The Welikia Project goes beyond Mannahatta to encompass the entire city, discover its original ecology and compare it what we have today.

My miniscule contribution to the US GDP is now rendered moot until Friday, at least.

Awesome, today's Trurl post.

Hope tomorrow's is as good.

little known fact: these days, due to being both a 'migration trap' and the only place for escaped pets to go, central park is one of the top ten bird-watching sites on the planet. I have seen swans, peacocks, hummingbirds, cockatoos, hawks, and screech owls (which are damn cute btw), and a bunch of others, all in the same day...and i'm not really a bird-watcher...it's hard not to notice...

mek: "Eric Sanderson's TED talk on Mannahatta."

That's one of my favorite TED talks, ever.

Trurl, thanks for this. :)
