Barbara Felicetti of Ardmore, PA recently drew our attention to this article on the New Scientist website by their CultureLab editor, Kate Austen who was lucky enough to visit the experimental sci-art gallery “Le Laboratoire” in Paris to view these beautiful crocheted cumulus clouds.

“Lit from within and above, the swathes of crocheted white wool hang from the ceiling to just half a metre above the ground, casting familiar shadows on the gallery floor. The fluffy cashmilon wool chosen by the artist, Argentinean architect Ciro Najle, works well for cumulus clouds – the puffy ones that can precede thunder storms, and are precursors to the godfather of clouds, the cumulonimbus” she says.

    Why is this and exactly why is it something that you,
    if you own a company big or small, should take note of it – Giving your web visitors a social experience with the company has had some significant value to their company.
    So what happens if your partner’s friends list includes his or her ex, ultimate crushes and a whole bunch of seemingly perfect people. Considering Google Plus’ applications for work-related use, it is
    interesting to note that Google+ may not rely as heavily on massive user adoption to retain a solid user base.
    You are the parent, you can do anything that you want; however, there is really no
    need to. Not just to the commenter but to other followers and visitors.
    The best way to define the different types of networking is
    to break each one down.
