We're filling up the world with technology and devices, but we've lost sight of an important question: What is this stuff for? What value does it add to our lives? So asks author John Thackara in his new book, In the Bubble: Designing for a Complex World. These are tough questions for the pushers of technology to answer. Our economic system is centered on technology, so it would be no small matter if "tech" ceased to be an end-in-itself in our daily lives. Technology is not going to go away, but the time to discuss the end it will serve is before we deploy it, not after. We need to ask what purpose will be served by the broadband communications, smart materials, wearable computing, and connected appliances that we're unleashing upon the world. We need to ask what impact all this stuff will have on our daily lives. Who will look after it, and how?In the Bubble is about a world based less on stuff and more on people. Thackara describes a transformation that is taking place now -- not in a remote science fiction future; it's not about, as he puts it, "the schlock of the new" but about radical innovation already emerging in daily life. We are regaining respect for what people can do that technology can't. In the Bubble describes services designed to help people carry out daily activities in new ways. Many of these services involve technology -- ranging from body implants to wide-bodied jets. But objects and systems play a supporting role in a people-centered world. The design focus is on services, not things. And new principles -- above all, lightness -- inform the way these services are designed and used. At the heart of In the Bubble is a belief, informed by a wealth of real-world examples, that ethics and responsibility can inform design decisions without impeding social and technical innovation.

Luxurious, soothing, moisturizing olive oil-based soaps made at home easily and economically. There are only three essential ingredients required to create these soaps: water, olive oil, and caustic soda. Olive oil is the primary ingredient enjoying the highest rating as its properties are well known throughout the world. Olive oil is the most beneficial oil to your health, and in cosmetics it has been used since ancient times for its virtues for glowing hair and skin. Rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins it has the added benefit of being available virtually everywhere. Once these three key ingredients are in place, there are a number of wonderful extra ingredients that will customize and create a personal soap. These ingredients include beeswax, cocoa butter, clay, kaolin, seaweed, goats milk and egg yolks, and others. Some ingredients will give the soap hardness (beeswax) or softness (honey) or more foam (cocoa butter) for greater cleansing ability. Since using soap is such a sensory experience, there is a comprehensive section on essential oils which create that air of perpetual breeze of a good soap. A comprehensive section on these essential oils, their history and therapeutic uses provide all the information needed to create the perfect scent. The recipes feature essential oils of the highest purity which are added to the soap right before it is placed in molds. Easy step-by-step preparation techniques produce luxurious soaps such as: Sandalwood Soap, Kiwi Soap, Chocolate Soap, Wheat Germ Soap, Green Tea Soap, Cedar Soap, Echinacea Soap, Lavender Soap, Marshmallow Soap, Lemon Soap, Rose Hip Soap, Marigold Soap, Coconut Soap, Vanilla Soap, Seaweed Soap, Oat Soap, Clay Soap, Mung Bean Soap, After Eight Soap, Beach Sand Soap. This fascinating history of soap and its ingredients with therapeutic recommendations is informative and fun to read. The comprehensive recipes with preparation, utensil and ingredient tips guide the reader to create better-than-store-bought quality soaps made at home.
