my son turned me onto a blog written by a young student at Cambridge
Alice and Kev is the name of this blog and i’ve been completely blown away by it. if the following is of interest to you, i say read away and learn dear reader – experience, read and learn….
This is an experiment in playing a homeless family in The Sims 3. I created two Sims, moved them in to a place made to look like an abandoned park, removed all of their remaining money, and then attempted to help them survive without taking any job promotions or easy cash routes. It’s based on the old ‘poverty challenge’ idea from The Sims 2, but it turned out to be a lot more interesting with The Sims 3’s living neighborhood features.
I have attempted to tell my experiences with the minimum of embellishment. Everything I describe in here is something that happened in the game. What’s more, a surprising amount of the interesting things in this story were generated by just letting go and watching the Sims’ free will and personality traits take over.

it’s about connecting data not files and about deriving meaning from content and then making connections where there have been none before
it’s about sharing your data across networks of sites that share a basic id to you and pull the data you allow to have all your favorite applications together
it’s about taking the subject and type of content of a page you are on and and using data openness and followers recommendations to make your experience smarter
A series of cataclysmic volcanic eruptions gave the planet its polar ice caps, and kicked the ancient climate into a freeze-thaw cycle of ice ages that persists to this day, according to a new theory….
….Steven Cather of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology and a team of researchers now think they know why. They argue that a series of massive volcanic eruptions spanning nearly all of present-day Mexico, as well as parts of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Idaho launched vast amounts of ash into the atmosphere.
