Words and pictures

MAYDAY magazine has published the poem
Wrong Side of the Road.

MAYDAY magazine

They have also published a series of artworks. one piece includes a tank; the art is not by me.

Meanwhile Geoff Manaugh, on his BLDBLOG, writes about intelligent geotextiles (which are not talking teacloths) that:

"The "perimeter detection ring" examined above, for instance, would instead be used to repel or otherwise blind "intruding" UAVs* and UGVs**; this could be used for everything from keeping a foreign power's drones out of your sovereign airspace to preventing the IRS*** from flying drones over your suburb for property tax purposes."

Tablecloths against taxes!

And that: "What appears to be a garden is a computational geotextile interacting with driverless ground vehicles miles away."

Blankets for road-works!

Being that “In mythological terms, this would be the geotextile as talisman, or terrestrial ring of protection.

Tomato shade solution against illegal aliens!

Go read some poetry at MAYDAY magazine.
