Recommended app: MindNode

My hunt for useful study related iPad apps continues. I just came across a nice tool I’d like to recommend:

MindNode is an application developed for Mac OS X, iPad and iPhone, and is an easy and intuitive program for drawing mindmaps from brainstorming sessions. It’s a clean and clutter-free interface that quickly organizes ideas for review and sharing. I’ve been using this to organize my current group project, and I’m confident I’ll use it consistently in the future.

Impressions from Copenhagen

At the end of the second introductory course in landscape architecture, we went to Copenhagen for a few days to study some of the finest examples of urban planning with our own eyes. A trip which did many things to me personally – viewing both historic sites and new innovative planning in public spaces and city streets. Being in a group where everyone has a common field of interest really inspires, and it does so while confirming that your field of vision really has altered since the start of the studies; you experience places differently, you see them with greater depth, you notice tons of details you didn’t before. To me, this alone is reason enough to study a profession such as landscape architecture. Combine this with the increased knowledge of society, psychology, economy, law, biology, ecology and not to mention the artistic skills – I can’t think of a better subject to devote future years to.

  • We need to talk about water
    They say that the future wars and conflicts will be about water. Battles will be fought over a valuable and vital resource due to the decreasing levels of it. Despite our dependency of it, we seem to take it for granted. Is the ubiquity of water causing us to manage it so callously?

    FN sier at menneske aktiviteter som å bygge ut på verdifull areal kan utrydde opp mot 1 million arter. Betyr dette at vi nordmenn må gi opp hyttedrømmen?
