LYRICS When the budget was first slashed, I was petrified How to do my job With my new printer denied? Then I ran off a few more They didn't look too wrong The streaks are long But we'll just have to get along So we step back In the library's base Approving fewer, but better programs Without disgrace Should we stop inviting authors?

What is the future of the library? What is a library when 'everywhere is here'? UPDATE- This thesis won the National Corobrik Architectural Thesis Award 2010. I have made the entire Thesis Document available for download here: -UPDATE This architectural animation explores the question of the role of the public library when digital information is everywhere and is everything. What happens to the spaces of books? and how should traditional spaces of information change for a digital world? Even better... in the developing world, how could the library nurture an information society, when people don't have access at home? Could the future of the library be an urban information bar? or a theatre of knowledge? and what does that really mean anyway? This animation is just an introduction to my architectural masters thesis called EVERYWHERE IS HERE: I will be blogging some random stuff at www.everywhereishere2009 Personal Website: All comments and thoughts welcome!

XCode Tutorial: Creating Static Libraries If you're someone who distributes code for iPhone applications, it's better if you secure the code so no one can modify it and redistribute a faulty version. You can cram multiple .m files in the library instead of creating multiple libraries for each m file. You can sorta create your own framework like this, having the h's out of the library and the m's in it.
