More Media

Democracy Now!

I'm blogging a lot about Bucky Fuller in the news these days, reviewing the articles I've run across in the New Yorker, New York Times, Herald Tribune and like that.

Amy Goodman did a piece on Fuller today, timed with this show opening at the Whitney Museum in NYC in a couple days (through September), and making a bigger media splash than the retrospective @ Noguchi Garden Museum last year.

Hunter Lovins, Jaime Snyder (Fuller's grandson), and John Todd were her three luminaries. Thanks to Wanderer David Tver for the heads up on this one.

I like the quote from Bucky himself they dropped in, something about how increasing world literacy moves us past a tipping point, to where we have a different more democratic relationship to one another, needn't feel subordinate to political leaders, much as we continue appreciating strong leadership, found in many walks of life.

I've been drumming up some interest among the math teachers I hope, via the Math Forum's math-teach and geometry.pre-college.
