Lessig: Institutional Corruption

The reason we’re not getting the copyright reforms we deserve, the environmental policies we need or the public healthcare option most Americans want is the same: Institutional Corruption.

Bus Shelter Made From Recycled Buses

Christopher Fennell

“Sculptor Christopher Fennell created a bus shelter in Atlanta from three decommissioned school busses. Exterior slices of a ‘62,’72, and ‘77 buses were joined together and the seating is from an old city bus. Interesting mix of creative reuse of materials and their context.” (via PSFK)
