A Trace in the Sand
by Ruth Malan
What's a Trace?
My Trace is a playground for developing ideas, for exploring architecture and the role of architects. It is a journal of discovery, and traces my active reflection. I've been journaling "out loud" here for over eight years. To get a sense of the span, calibre and contribution of this body of work, there's a selection of traces linked here. When reading a trace in isolation, it may feel like you've been dropped into a thought fray unprepared for the action that is already in progress. It's okay. You're smart, and my Trace assumes that. You'll get your bearing quickly. Just give it a chance.
"Oh Cool" is so Cool!
For the most part, it is just the same, always the same, handful of people who make me feel I am not entirely invisible in the twitter-verse:
With that in mind:
Thanks for the pointer and the mention! These gestures of inclusion are so gratifying!
Do look in on Simon Brown -- I have mentioned his work in software architecture and architectural sketching over the years, but it is worth a reminder to go check out his tweet stream, book-in-progress and website, etc.
JP de Vooght is one of the few who have been twitter-kind to me in the past, so he likely needs no introduction to those who read here. But in case you're just getting acquainted, he shares our interest in architecture and sustainability and his tweet stream is a wonderful resource!
Thanks also to Rachel Davies!
But... cough cough... I seem to have caught the attention of all the Chuck Norrises... What did I say/do??? ...
Is there like some secret Tom Robbins/Elmer reference that is like a code? Just a bot swarm? What?
