Tweet knowledge

Twitter is inane. It’s hopeless. But it can also be fascinating. Just look at what I learned on Twitter today:

  1. You can make a jacket with turn signals so you can signal your turns while biking. This requires something called a LilyPad Arduino, which is “a microcontroller board designed for wearables and e-textiles.” Way cool. Perhaps I need to learn to sew.
  2. Does Moby Dick have something to say about the BP oil spill? That’s what Randy Kennedy suggests in The Ahab Parallax: ‘Moby Dick’ and the Spill. I’m reading Moby Dick right now and I hadn’t noticed any parallels, but now I’ll be on the lookout.
  3. You can make Butter Chicken at home! Butter chicken is my favorite Indian food. Sooo good. I plan to try this recipe this weekend.
  4. Finally, this NYC townhouse is incredibly cool — two of the exterior walls are garage doors. You have to see it to understand how awesome this place is. (via boing boing)

All very random, I know, but interesting, yes?
