Pretty soon Pakman joined them a few times, and got hooked. So that the family could play together, Pakman set up his own server, hosting a private community for the three of them. Slowly, his children’s friends began to join, and three years later, there are more than 100 kids and parents from around his neighborhood who log on to Pakman’s server. — Why parents are raising their kids on Minecraft | The Verge

You’re looking into Florida Polytechnic University’s new library. Light, bright, beautiful curves and… there’s not a single book on its shelves? Nope, you read that right. The 11,000 square-foot, $60 million, Santiago Calatrava-designed building doesn’t have a single paper book anywhere within it. Sure, it’s a beautiful space for working and reading—it’s just that everything is digital. (via You Won’t Be Able to Find a Book in This Beautiful New Library)
Their goal was to create a field guide to contemporary American recreation—a lasting document and photographic record of how we spend our vacations. Their findings, while light-hearted, offer a broad look at a summer in the American West, which, as evidenced by Granado’s photographs, is driven by a connection to the land, and, as expected, one’s camera. — American Recreation: A Field Study - The New Yorker
Thoughts on Penn State in Ireland #pennstate
I’m struck by the pure genius of this Penn State football game in Ireland. The way that they’re using marketing for the World Campus along with the Nittany Lions football team is just brilliant. In a lot of ways you think you’re watching a game for the Penn State World Campus Nittany Lions — I don’t think I’ve seen a commercial for the University in general.
Pair it all with a very string alumni…
