James Modern Terrariums is Jeff Schneider, an art director in fashion for over 10 years who left his job to focus on modern industrial design and home decor. Growing up with two parents who were passionate gardeners, Jeff began collecting plants at a young age — the more obscure the better. Recognizing a gap in the market for modern, minimal terrariums, he decided to create terrariums for people who shared his same aesthetic.

All over sartorial Japan (at least in the Classic Italian sub-genre) guys flip their shirt collar to appear more nonchalant. Even the shops display the shirts with the collars flipped.

I’ve seen the videos online of iOS 4.2 running smoothly on an iPhone 3G. Most of these reviews have proclaimed that iOS 4.2 is faster than iOS 4.1. The following benchmarking results challenge this perception. I ran the update through its paces on my 3G, and this is what I found.

I decided to release my 3D reconstruction software, even though nobody will be able to compile it yet. The problem is that it's built on top of the Vrui VR toolkit, version 2.0, which is not released yet. But hopefully in a few days. At that point, it will definitely build on Linux, and probably on Mac OS X if you find a Mac version of the libusb-1.0 library (which I think exists).

- The four ventilation buildings (two in New Jersey and two in New York) house a total of 84 fans, of which 42 are blower units, and 42 are exhaust units. They are capable, at full speed, of completely changing the tunnel air every 90 seconds.
David Gissen briefly explores the architecture of NYC tunnel vents in his book Subnature, opening a window onto the architecture of subterranean weather generation, where unseen machines suck whole atmospheres from the depths of the city. Perhaps we’ll even read someday that New York’s ongoing rash of tornadoes includes a few rogue climate systems belched forth from these vent stacks on the autumnal banks of the Hudson (or perhaps not).

These typographic maps by Axis Maps take locating a destination to a whole new level. Each map accurately shows the location of streets and highways, parks, neighborhoods, coastlines, and other features of each city using only words. To create these impressive maps, every single letter and word was manually placed, taking hundreds of hours to complete each map.
