everything is full of radiation

We have contaminated the atmosphere with trace amounts of radioactivity with detonations of atom bombs starting in 1945 and that contamination risks our ability to build sensors to detect this same, small amount of radiation.

All steel made since the detonation of the first atom bomb in 1945 has contained tiny amounts of radioactivity. This is because the atmosphere now contains trace amounts of radioactivity. The steelmaking process involves the use of large amounts of air, which transfers the radioactivity to the steel. Instruments and equipment used for measuring radioactivity must be free from extra background radiation, so post-1945 “new” steel cannot be used for these purposes. Instead, pre-1945 “clean” steel is used.

I had the need to use one of these today. Unfortunately any of the online versions don’t have the satisfaction inherent in using one of these analog computers.

Help! I need help.

Help Remedies_ simple healthcare products for headaches, bodyaches, allergies, sleep issues, cuts and blisters.jpg

Help Remedies has released their new products, which they briefly previewed to the PSFK NY conference this spring. Help continues on it’s goal to simplify everyday health needs, with clear, well designed, no nonsense packaging. It is refreshing to see medicine described thusly:

Each package of “help I have a headache” contains 16 oblong pills. Each oblong pill contains 500mgs acetaminophen. We use acetaminophen because it’s an excellent treatment for headaches and it’s delicate on stomachs. We use as large a dose of acetaminophen as we can, and the fewest possible fillers, coatings, and dyes.

We haven’t used “extra strength” to describe our headache pills even though they do have lots of acetaminophen. That’s because if everybody always used “extra strength” to describe headache pills then “extra strength,” wouldn’t really mean anything anymore. And we don’t want the things that we say to mean nothing.

Walking home the other day I decided to play Mariolife, a real life GPS game on my iPhone. Playing in this case, is walking around in the real world gathering up virtual coins and mushrooms and rescuing princesses. In my quest to gather up coins I found myself walking on streets I had never walked, at least with any kind of noticing, and running into bits of street art I had not yet seen as well. My real life adventure was being guided by the placement of coins that existed only on the screen of my iPhone. So in spending a couple of hours wandering around collecting virtual coins and real street art (in photos) I realized that there was something really special about the collision of very different real world expereinces that was happening here.
