There's this bloke, ex-architecture student Nick Blair, standing on the roof of a lift-slab warehouse somewhere in the US dropping named eggs on to the pavement below. Named eggs?

There is also a report on a German design competition for taps. There is that Berlitz ad with a German coastguard responding to a Mayday call from an sinking English ship: 'Vat are you sinking about?' he asks the desperate English mariners. There is a report on how a Canadian company is researching whale flippers in the cause of better fan blades. And there is the recent Mark Newson show at New York's Gagosian gallery and this Tuesday's instant hagiography from the BBC's Alan Yentob.

I think this all started on Everything I Think About , but some of it was on Core 77 , the 'Industrial Design Supersite', where there was also an ace sofa by Phillip Grass. And now I've lost Blair, him on the roof. But it doesn't matter because this stream of consciousness across a clutch of blogs and sites is one of the things which you can do only on the web. Dive in.
