How to Bond

BY CHANTHAL MUIJRERS
@ VOL 30 ON JUN 13, 2016

There's a broad upcoming sense that in our daily, busy life making a true connection with another person is not that easy. We feed ourselves with a spectacular variety of social activities that are maybe not that social at all, when we take a closer look. Chanthal Muijrers' approach is refreshingly motivating, combining her clients talents and social skills to empower them.

Hvordan påvirker nye forskrifter og miljøkrav valg av ny bolig og rehabilitering av gammel

BY BENGT G MICHALSEN
@ VOL 7 ON MAR 31, 2016

Bengt Michalsen driver arkitekt og byggerma som har spesialisert seg på lavenergi- og passivhus. I kveld kaster han lys over nye krav til energieektivitet i alle bygg og håper på den måten å formidle en forståelse for at alle som skal bygge og renovere ikke bare må engasjere en snekker uten videre, men gjøre en kyndig vurdering av hva de skal planlegge FØR de har gjort det, eller før de har kommet for langt.

Big Bird Gets Boing Boinged

That presentation by Mike Dickison we posted about yesterday? Well, it appears that A LOT of you like it, to the tune of almost 18,000 views already, and counting. We won't take all -- or even any -- credit for that though, as it's quite evident that a mention by Cory Doctorow on Boing Boing is really what led the charge, and for that we of course thank Cory for helping to spread the word about Mike's great presentation.
