"Spotting kids learning at their own pace is like catching a glimpse of Bigfoot. We all know about Bigfoot but beyond a few grainy photos, few can claim they have actually seen it in the wild.
Education innovation is not about dumping truckloads of tablets into classrooms or doing the exact same things we have always done, just with a shinier set of tools. It’s about the the hard work of changing instructional practice and radically improving student experience. It’s about coaxing Bigfoot to come out.”  — Alex Hernandez

In this week’s issue, Burkhard Bilger writes about the ongoing effort to explore what may be the deepest cave in the world, located in Mexico—“a kind of Everest expedition turned upside down”: http://nyr.kr/1iNcr8B
In this video, the cavers scale slippery walls, swim through frigid water, and make camp in a cloud forest, as Bilger narrates: http://nyr.kr/1eAO5n2

This is the scariest stuff I can imagine.

In an effort to prepare for a world after peak oil, design student Mark Colliass has invented a bike accessory that can only be described as Peak Hipster. His clever contraption transforms a fixie into a rolling factory capable of cranking out arty, limited-edition lampshades that would make killer Etsy listings.
The project makes manufacturing as easy as, well, riding a bike. A bespoke rotational casting machine attaches to a bicycle’s handlebars. A small shot of liquid resin is poured into a rubber mold and it is inserted into the rig. As the rider pedals, the front wheel rotates the mold, sloshing the plastic around the cavity. A chemical transformation begins, and 40 minutes later the rider can remove a fully formed lampshade.
