  • LOLCAT Teh Exhibishun is a group art show purporting to explore the world of lolcats. There appears to be nary an actual lolcat in sight, and I’d argue that the pieces on show are fairly far removed from the participatory and derivative culture of lolcats, but there are some convergent and clever commonalities as well. BBC covered the opening of the exhibition. As an added bonus: Dare designer extraordinaire James Warfield has a piece in the collection! The exhibitions run until February 15, 2013.

  • Aaron Swartz, Coder and Activist, Dead at 26. When I first heard about this last week, my immediate impulse was to share this tragic news with the first person I could grab. But in our house, no one else knew who Aaron was. While I didn’t know Aaron personally, he is someone who I’ve known of for years, who’s blog I’ve read, who’s products I’ve used, someone who’s passion I’ve admired. Aaron’s passing is, indeed, a sad moment for the Web.
