This past summer, Zenph Sound Innovations had a problem. Zenph is a North Carolina-based company specializing in computer-generated “re-performances” of classic recordings with astounding results. But Zenph’s latest project — “The Spanish Masters,” featuring renowned cellist Zuill Bailey and soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian accompanying recreations of century-old piano-playing — was coming in over budget. That’s when Zenph’s management took a cue from the project’s setting, Manifold Recording Studio, which was designed with both old-school live performance and new-school open-source philosophy in mind. Manifold co-owner Michael Tiemann suggested that Zenph go the crowd-funding route to raise the money needed. “I proposed that we offset the costs by holding a recording salon,” Tiemann says.

an interactive game exploring what sustainability means and how it relates to our homes
Welcome to Talk to Me, an exhibit at MoMA July 24–November 7, 2011 Whether openly and actively or in subtle, subliminal ways, things talk to us. Tangible and intangible, and at all scales—from the spoon to the city, the government, and the Web, and from buildings to communities, social networks, systems, and artificial worlds—things communicate. They do not all speak up: some use text, diagrams, visual interfaces, or even scent and temperature: others just keep us company in eloquent silence. Talk to Me
By Meghan Keneally Updated: 23:22 GMT, 17 December 2011 It is a tool the older generation never needed - relying on a good old fashioned knock on the door. But as the digital generation becomes ever more insular, now a string of social networks are seeking to help us reconnect with our neighbours. Websites like Nextdoor.com, EveryBlock.com and HeyNeighbor.com hope to bring neighbors together by allowing them to knock on each others virtual doors and be less of a bother than if they were to do so physically. Help a neighbor out: Nextdoor.com only allows people who truly live in the neighborhood to participate by limiting access Social networking sites go local and hope to allow users to 'virtually' knock on each other's doors
SEEK: Sustainable Everyday Enabling Kit SEEK focuses on a selected number of framework projects and considers with particular attention the design tools that have been used or that are currently in use. On this basis, and considering different clusters of similar programs and projects, it generates some dedicated sets of design tools that we will call: enabling kits. The enabling kits, therefore, are sets of design tools conceived to stimulate and facilitate co-design processes and larger social conversations. Sustainable Everyday Explorations

New Computer Game Simulates Challenges of Global Warming A British company has developed a new computer game that allows players to save the planet from the effects of global warming — at least in a simulated setting. “Fate of the World,” produced by the gaming company Red Redemption, places players at the head of a global environmental organization — a “UN with teeth” — charged with saving the world over the next 200 years in the face of rising temperatures, diminishing resources, disappearing ecosystems, and growing population.

Generating Power from Sidewalks | CleanTechnica Clean Power Published on January 10th, 2012 | by Zachary Shahan That little green slab creates electricity.
England | London | Generating interest in wind power When Donnachadh McCarthy decided he wanted to generate his own electricity using a wind turbine, he almost fell at the first hurdle. The planning application was initially refused after a neighbour objected - over what turned out to be an unnecessary concern. "She said it was going to kill her cat," he said, "Which it wasn't. "She also thought it was going to be 2.4m which is almost double the size." Mr McCarthy reassured the neighbour that it would not harm any pets or wildlife and asked Southwark Council officers to change their minds.
Generating Power From Waste - Recycling Expert Author: James Murray-White - Updated: 28 November 2013| Comment Dealing with the huge amount of waste being thrown into landfill sites on a daily basis and exploring the growing need to find new solutions to the massive consumption of power and energy in the western world, are two areas scientists are examining right now. With the first problem, coping with waste, educating the public to use less and recycle more is the first part of the solution, but that still leaves the problem of what to do with the waste we already have?
