Finding Omo

One of the lovelier advertisements I've seen in recent years, is this Italian aquarama for the Ariston Aqualtis clothes-washer.

Music Vangelis: "Ask the Mountains" from the album Voices. Lyrics/Vocal: Stina Nordenstam

I finished reading Damien Broderick's novel Transcension, which is an alternate take on the social-technological singularity written about by the likes of Stross, Vinge and Egan. Australian Broderick has also written a non-fictional account, published as The Spike. Stross's tiddlywiki account of the nerdly rapture posits everyone being uploaded into their pocket calculators, and presumably disappearing into a breastpocket vortex.
