he becomes aware of himself only within the world,
and aware of the world only within himself.
Every object, well contemplated, opens up a new organ of perception within us.

Let’s make our drems of a different world, come true!
Your way forward is a journey that only you can discover. The essence of that journey is a gift that can come into the world only through you, your presence, your best future self.
Conversation with Nipun Mehta
Transforming ignorance to inquiry, greed to compassion, and fear to courage. Which suggests curiosity (open mind), compassion (open heart) and courage (open will) as the essence of our inner cultivation work that we need to engage in as change makers and leaders across all levels.
“Sweet Tweet is the first project to come out of Uniform’s research platform, ULAB.
We’ve been exploring the idea of Physical Apps, objects that connect to the internet to perform dedicated tasks, enabling users to access information or services without using a standard interface like a mouse, keyboard or touchscreen.
Sweet Tweet is an extension of this idea. We wanted to create a physical app that connected our studio to our Twitter followers, alerting us all each time we get a new follower. We’d also just made our Philosophy film and there seemed to be a great opportunity to bring it to life. So we created a cuckoo clock that dispenses sweets for our team to eat, each time we get a new follower on Twitter. Now every time we’re followed everyone in the studio shares a very tangible, glanceable and aural notification as our clock toots and tweets a sweet, which makes us all smile.”
I’m reading about 2 books for each of my modules and 4 books a week for my dissertation, October’s a busy month for birthdays and Andrew’s been ill. I still need to sort out my volunteering, and I’ve been busy with Vice-Presidential duties and we’re just found out we’re host the ULAB (Undergraduate Linguistic Association of Britain) conference this year, so we’re trying to get the ball rolling there. So it looks like this blog will be put on hold (What a shame). Oh and I’m working shifts all over the place too.
It’s all good fun though!
