“on many wikis, wikipedia included, a walled garden is a set of pages or articles that link to each other, but do not have any links to or from anything outside the group. this can be a failure of linkage, or it can be an attempt to form a group of articles on essentially the same topic. this should especially be avoided on wikipedia, where one of our core principles is building the web.”

fuzi uv tpk – (via reform)

 

okay, its time to continue building the web.  as previously mentioned, my goal for july was to add to the ayh blogroll.  since august is just around the corner, this seems like a great opportunity to add more links.  and rather than quietly add links, i figured i’d give a quick synopsis in case you’ve never heard of these blogs and need to be enticed a bit.  last time there was a theme of urban, landscape, and engagement.  this time the theme is variety.  no walled gardens today.  here goes:

 

htc experiments:  continuing with last times’ theme of urban, landscape, and social engagement i can’t help but think of htc experiments.  ever since i read about david gissen’s proposal to reconstruct the mound of vendome, i’ve been hooked.

sink then swim:  curated by claudette, sink then swim is an awesome blog covering her everyday life and inspiring art/music/whatever.  i was first introduced to claudette through our mutual friends at rolu, where she wrote a couple great posts.  but enough about rolu, check out sink then swim – here’s a recent favorite post.

many stuff:  good.  graphic.  design.  every time i think of redesigning my portfolio i turn to many stuff.  so many inspiring projects.  and while the topics mostly cover graphic design, charlotte cheetham also posts about art projects in the us and europe.

pale:  i came across pale recently.  its a tumblr pumping out a constant stream of images everyday.  some are pale, others are not.  check it out for yourself.

reform:  “every reform movement has a lunatic fringe.”  so says their slogan.  anyways, it’s also a tumblr.  its also where i found today’s image.

 

the revolution is not a garden party
