The Scuttlefish: About Life in and on the Seas

[ in their own words ] The Scuttlefish is a project by Brian Lam and friends, celebrating the lovely, terrifying, powerful, mysterious, soothing, angry, calm, merciless, and awe inspiring sea. It has nothing much to do about technology. Except when it is a submarine.

      The Scuttlefish is designed to evoke the kind of vibe you’d feel after a nice long day at the beach. Or a difficult night at sea. It’s not about animals, or sports or eco, or science, or travel or food or culture, but all of those things and perhaps a bit of lore. Because besides our own human drama, there’s no deeper well of stories, and no more mysterious and rich a frontier than the ocean.
     The Scuttlefish is a partner site of The Atlantic and originally reported stories appear on TheAtlantic.com at times.

DETAIL daily: an art and design blog

Architecture through the ages.
      Aesthetics and construction: the interplay between design and technology demonstrated by outstanding examples of architecture
      DETAIL daily has been reporting on high-quality architecture from around the world, questioning designs and getting below the surface for the past 50 years.
     DETAIL daily does not simply parade ambitious architecture in the form of glossy photos, but instead examines backgrounds under the recurring themes of “aesthetics and construction”, and reveals constructional contexts and relationships between structures, their origins, and spaces created.

The American Poetry Review

American Poetry Review is dedicated to reaching a worldwide audience with a diverse array of the best contemporary poetry and literary prose. APR also aims to expand the audience interested in poetry and literature, and to provide authors, especially poets, with a far-reaching forum in which to present their work.
     American Poetry Review was founded by Stephen Berg in 1972 in Philadelphia. By developing efficient, inexpensive production methods and a distribution network that combined newsstands, bookstores, and subscriptions, it became the most widely circulated poetry magazine in the U.S. within the first five years of publication.
     In the 1970’s, APR established a reputation for publishing a broad range of material: interviews, literary essays and essays on social issues, translations, fiction, reviews, and poetry by the most distinguished authors, by writers working in new forms of contemporary literature, by younger poets now at the center of American poetry, and by writers from other cultures.
      APR has continued uninterrupted publication of American Poetry Review since 1972, and has included the work of over 1,500 writers, among whom there are nine Nobel Prize laureates and thirty-three Pulitzer Prize winners.
