RSA Animate

RSA Animate - Crises of Capitalism

In this short RSA Animate, radical sociologist David Harvey asks if it is time to look beyond capitalism, towards a new social order that would allow us to live within a system that could be responsible, just and humane.

I really like these new animated videos by RSA.

Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce has collaborated with the cartoonist Andrew Park of Cognitive Media to animate talks given at RSA.

Kubideh Kitchen


My kind of place!

Kubideh Kitchen is an Iranian take away that serves kubideh in freshly baked barbari bread with onion, mint, and basil. Developed in collaboration with members of the Pittsburgh Iranian community, the sandwich is packaged in a custom-designed wrapper that includes interviews with Iranians both in Pittsburgh and Iran on subjects ranging from Iranian food and Persian poetry to the current political turmoil!
