A pep talk to the MAKERS out there. It’s from Nike but I like the message a lot.
“Suppose my auto-repair man devised questions for an intelligence test. Or suppose a carpenter did, or a farmer, or, indeed, almost anyone but an academician. By every one of those tests, I’d prove myself a moron, and I’d be a moron, too. In a world where I could not use my academic training and my verbal talents but had to do something intricate or hard, working with my hands, I would do poorly. My intelligence, then, is not absolute but is a function of the society I live in and of the fact that a small subsection of that society has managed to foist itself on the rest as an arbiter of such matters.
||Isaac Asimov, from What is Intelligence, Anyway?
A story of a remarkable artist from The Blinking City.
Mr. Prina has been an architect for over 50 years but his model building is a work of art and fantasy. Building flying models from paper and balsa wood since he was very young shows his amazing and artistic genius.
Many look like images from Leonardo DaVinci’s workshop and are beautiful to look at, much less to see fly.
Have a look at the article and watch the short video of this remarkable Maker of dreams.
