Rather than write something long right now, I thought I'd go through the stats (from mybloglog) and give some feedback to google queries that have come their way to Vacuum.
Nancy Osborn, Nano Osborn, sometimes the searches come in as Osborne. Here's the obituary. Memorial service today (Saturday). The Ann Arbor News printed the obit, but in the spirit of the infinitely broken MLive, the full text of it is nowhere to be found in a Google search. Hello? Grrr. For a fond memory, see this story from the Detroit News a few years back: "Going native: Hardy Midwest plants make Michigan gardens havens for birds and butterflies".
The Noguchi filing system. After writing about it, I'm starting to use it. It turns out that if you shelve a lot of very thin file folders in a regular bookshelf, they start to fall over unpleasantly if they aren't packed in neatly with books. Note to self: bookends. There's lots of commercial-grade furniture aimed at medical and dental offices that use open shelf filing. A nice page from Oregon State details a lot of filing alternatives under the topic of Records Management. (My new filing technique is unstoppable - includes video game - in stores now.)
Ann Arbor commute. If you can, take the bus, though it works best if you work downtown or at the University. My bus route is a literary landmark.
pocketmod. A clever way of folding a piece of paper so that it gives you a preprinted schedule, blank grid, or other "mods". The folding technique turns out to be from an Army field manual on reading maps, which gives additional instructions on how to glue your folded map flat on a page.
Mark Lombardi. This late artist drew elaborate pencil drawings of conspiracies and financial crime, using soaring graphite arcs to connect the perpetrators. Robert Hobbs curated a traveling show through the pierogi 2000 gallery; here is their mark lombardi @ pierogi 2000 page with links to where the show has been. Get the book Mark Lombardi: Global Networks from your local library, or read "Obsessive-Generous: Toward a Diagram of Mark Lombardi" (thanks Brian for that link).
vacuum bags cross reference. Can't help you on this one.
that didn't end up short.
