There’s nothing quite as cheerful as the opening theme to The Mary Tyler Moore Show:
Watching this and listening to the music makes me so nostalgic for a time when we were more innocent. However that refrain, “you’re gonna make it after all,” reassures us, after all these years, that there are still brighter days ahead.
The attribute of life is what makes something smart. And yet, so many lifeless concepts and gadgets are given the name “smart.”
“Smart” might be the biggest marketing scam of our time.
Design Technology specialist and Biomimicry pioneer Prashant Dhawan ponders the validity of the “Smart City” in the video below:
Are Smart Cities Smart?
Let’s dance on broken mirrors
In search of the invisible
Moving to phosphorescent sound
Around floating shards of light
In a slow motion confetti collision
From a traveling globe
Reflecting flames of glass
Flashes of movement from radiant spirits
Through the spinning optical twilight
The night is endlessly bright.
