Buckminster Fuller, the man

Came across this today.

The first time I heard of Buckminster Fuller was reading I think the Mars Trilogy, and it’s use of BuckyTubes and Bucky Balls

I had no idea he’s the genius behind the geodesic dome, which is freakin’ cool. I’ll have to research the Dymaxion Chronofile filing system, maybe I can keep conference files that way? :)

From wired, “Turns out, Fuller (who was born in 1895 and died 25 years ago July 1)was so far ahead of his time that we’re just now catching up to some ofhis ideas — off-the-grid housing, two-way TV, mass customization.

I can only someday we can make full use of all of his cool way out ideas!

    Our family is building a web site on "round living" to be released towards the end of July. Bucky was a very interesting guy. He wasn’t alone in the concept of round living. There are many forms of round houses and it took years before the gurus
