A good day for the internet
I've been on the verge of writing an "I'm bored with the internet" post for a while now. Sometimes blogging is fun. Sometimes it's like a millstone round your neck. Feeling obliged to come up with something new when it feels like the same old stuff swillling around the interweb. But I never write the grumpy post because I know it always passes and it did today when the internet came alive again. It was all "wow" and no "meh".
- Craig of Flip Flop Flying who is swanning about South America in a rather louche way, went to Brazil's Museum of Naive Art which looks amazing. Before that he went to the Oscar Neimeyer designed Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói which is beautiful beyond words.
- Peter Ashley of Unmitigated England who is interesting at all times peaked with a visit to the sound mirrors in Kent. These are fascinating things - precursors to radar as I learnt in The Radar Museum. Firmly in the beautifully ugly category.
- Wil of Ghost School got to see Johnny Ball speaking at his work. How cool is that? Being Wil he drew it rather than describing it in words and it looks brilliant.
- Helen of Comfortable Disorientation, who had stopped blogging for a wee while is back. She's had a baby, and is writing about motherhood in a way that doesn't make you want to shoot yourself. I so recognise this and this and can't wait to see what she says next.
So all in all, I feel a bit bad for badmouthing the internet. It's come up trumps today.
