This week I visited an Amazon distribution facility with The New York Infrastructure Observatory. Expect a full report soon, and holler at me if you want to come on a similar tour in the future.

I also received the parts for the new bed I designed, and am looking forward to putting it together tomorrow. I'm about tapped out on side projects at the moment; it'll be good to have one wrap up.

The hype/fear about Chinese control over the rare earth
metals market was massively overblown.

Love, Spencer.

ps - Thank you to everyone - especially my friends at Gin Lane, Undercurrent, Brilliant Bicycles and on twitter - who referred me to everything here.

We should be closer friends. Coffee's on me.
