After I did show #217 last week, I got an email from today’s guest – CJ Fearnley, Executive Director of the Synergetics Collaborative, a non-for-profit organization that brings people together to build on the work of the late, great Buckminster Fuller. CJ complimented me on the show and we agreed it would be fun to have him come on and talk about Fuller in more depth.
Here are some additional links about Bucky Fuller for extra reading:

Congrats to Jeff and Paul, hosts of the recently re-launched AFL podcast on TPN. It’s cracked the iTunes Australian top rankings! I think this is the highest any TPN podcast has ranked in iTunes, so I’m pretty proud of the boys.
And a special shout-out to Molly Malone who introduced me to the boys in the first place and suggested they would make great hosts for the show.
After many years of research, I have finally cracked the secret to the ultimate hot chocolate.
I took the boys into the city today for “Wicked Sunday” – the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival’s celebration of coffee. And ’twas there, children, that I stumbled upon the magic ingredient – Chocolateriaâ„¢ San Churro. The secret, I have discovered, to the perfect, hot, thick, to-die-for spanish hot chocolate for “churos” is to use the very expensive powder from Chocolateriaâ„¢ San Churro, with milk, and be prepared to stir it on a low heat in a saucepan for about 15 minutes. But, oh! Children! You will not regret this discipline, I assure you. TO DIE FOR.
In other Sunday night news… I just discovered by accident that if I click the scroll wheel on my mouse, Vista shows all of the open windows evenly arrayed across my monitor. h00t!
I still can’t figure out how to get my Google Desktop searches to open in Firefox instead of IE. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling GD today but didn’t help. Goddamn IE!
In other Google frustrations, as my Gmail account is now 96% full, I tried to upgrade to Google Premium tonight, only to find that in order to do that I need to point my domain name MX record over to Google. Obviously cannot do that sir, as I am not the only citizen of TPN to be using it. So I’m scratching my head trying to figure out how I give the nice kids at Google my $50 for one of those 10Gb email accounts. If anyone knows the answer to my dilemma, please pass it on.
Saw this in Swanston Street this morning.
Those wacky Global Geeks have taken my photo, photoshopped some eyebrows even Peter Gallagher would be embarrassed about, and are running a competition for their audience to come up with a caption.
