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!

Time Machine almost wiped out my past

I like Time Machine, it has it’s faults; like not being able to define my own intervals, being kinda slow over the network, creating sparse images on network back up, but actual folder structures over USB, but in general it’s nice, and it’s built in, which I like. I had carbonite for my PCS and was trying the Mozy betas, which I might still use (I’m still paying for it) so that I have offsite recovery, but built in is nice.
