Pat's Wish-List & Gift-Giving Ideas

Here are a few things that I've been thinking about getting. If you're thinking of getting me a present, but are not sure what sort of things I'd like, this is a great place to start. :-)

Many of these are things I haven't gotten arrount to buying for myself, yet. Sometimes just due to time, often because of cost. If you want to contribute funds towards part of one of these and earmark funds for that purpose, that's perfectly fine with me. (I like to think of money as "the universal gift certificate." :-) )

Books

Syd Mead

Syd Mead is a fantastic futurist and designer. He designed the sets for movies such as BladeRunner, TRON, and 2010: Oddessey 2. This is great food for the imagination! There are examples of the artwork on his website.

Buckminster Fuller

(Bucky gets his own section. ;^) )

Membership in the Buckminster Fuller Institute $30 and up.
I can't believe I don't actually have this already! And they've got a challenge grant for their "Spaceship Earth Online" special project, so each dollar is actually worth 2 to them. As another point of cost-effectiveness, a membership with them would give me 10% off all purchases, so a $30 or more membership would save me $72 and $12, respectively on the below video sets.

More to come, I'm sure... :-)
