We Finally Meet!

On my visit to the NSU / Motorcycle Museum in Hermany.
The last room of the tour housed about 20 different race bikes, one being this beaute!

I'm much more excited then I look.

The Hand Made Future of Capitalism

4 Reasons Why The Future of Capitalism is Home Grown, Small Scale, and Independent.


"Making fewer things of higher quality and utility is important. Reusing and sharing really good stuff is valued. The entire notion of brand is upended in indie capitalism, superseded by the community surrounding the creation of a product or service. Authenticity is the “brand” in many cases."

FastCoDesign recently published an article on the coming boom of locally hand crafted goods, and the roll they'll play in our future economy. Click the image above to view the full article. It's short, sweet, and a good source of inspiration to get out there and create something.


...or get out there and buy something, that's big, square, and has garage doors.

 This makes me want a shared space even more! I just want to make stuff on a lathe so I can throw it at you guys and when you get mad, I'll say "But look how sweet it looks, stop being so mad."

SNOWJET

Say hello to the Snowjet. My answer -for now- to Tim's winter vehicle theme challenge. Here we've got ourselves an oversized speedboat for frozen lakes. Refer to the small door on the belly for man-size comparison. The wings on the skis are for keeping the feet on the ground at over 200 mph while the massive fuselage wing levels out any bumps that would otherwise jostle the Grey Poupon being served on-board. Day runs to the Northwest Territory are made downright enjoyable in the well appointed cabin, and passengers appreciate the smooth power and confidant whine of the modified Honeywell AGT1500. The only thing louder than the engine in this thing is the paint.
