CSS Zen Garden

Jutta showed me the latest wheeze she found while looking for CSS Zen Garden.

This shows you how to construct css grids in twenty eight mini lessons, each of which shows you how to water plants or poison weeds in a gridded graphic garden.


Dream incubation

I woke up recently and read that advertisers have begun invading our sleep in an attempt to place their products in our dreams.

Does dream engineering really work? After reading the article I remained sceptical, if only because I can remember the fears raised about subliminal advertising, which turned out to have almost no effect whatsoever.

Educational Opportunities in a Fictitious Country

Marinetta is the capital city of Rosario, a fictitious island situated in the Mediterranean Sea. It is also the title of an ongoing educational multimedia project that began in June 2002 and is intended to last for a minimum of five years.

Rosario has been created with a detailed geography, history, and local economy. It has a native language, which is (not coincidentally) identical to the reformed version of Esperanto known as Ido.

The goal of the project is to develop an immersive on-line environment that will permit different kinds of learning to take place simultaneously, while permitting one strand to interfere creatively with another.
