lego1 thumb 550xauto 84712 500x323 Lego model of ISS created while onboard the real thing

Lego bricks are beloved all the world over — now they have made it into orbit as part of a joint NASA-Lego educational project. The model of the International Space Station (ISS) was created while in orbit as a way of engaging children as to what it is like living and working in zero gravity.

I’d wager that it doesn’t come back from orbit in one piece.

LEGO Friends Olivias Worksh thumb 550xauto 79171 Lego sets just for sexists

Lego sent its team back out to scrutinize girls, starting in 2007. Lego confirmed that girls favor role-play, but they also love to build–just not the same way as boys. Whereas boys tend to be "linear"–building rapidly, even against the clock, to finish a kit so it looks just like what’s on the box–girls prefer "stops along the way," and to begin storytelling and rearranging.

Then there are the lady figures. Twenty-nine mini-doll figures will be introduced in 2012, all 5 millimeters taller and curvier than the standard dwarf minifig. There are five main characters. Like American Girl Dolls, which are sold with their own book-length biographies, these five come with names and backstories. The key difference between girls and the ladyfig and boys and the minifig was that many more girls projected themselves onto the ladyfig–she became an avatar. Boys tend to play with minifigs in the third person. "The girls needed a figure they could identify with, that looks like them," says Rosario Costa, a Lego design director. The Lego team knew they were on to something when girls told them, "I want to shrink down and be there."

The Lego Friends team is aware of the paradox at the heart of its work: To break down old stereotypes about how girls play, it risks reinforcing others.

really? girls wouldn’t play with regular ol’ legos with spaceships, trains, tanks, helicoptors, bears, et al? I find that highly unlikely.

Yesterday, I lost my day job. I was fired for some rather dubious reasons, but it boiled down to the fact that someone on the board of directors didn’t like the fact that I had a job, so they lobbied to correct that situation, and thus I find myself wondering how I’m going to make my next mortgage payment, or how I’m going to buy my next beer (answer, no beer until I’m back in the work force).

That being said, now that I’m temporarily unemployed, I’m going to devote much more time to the various websites that I have created and just let coast, including www.internet-d.com www.movieties.com and www.myconfinedspace.com My first task to to create a new “landing page” for mcs. This also means TIMELY posts on internet-d and movieties, so please feel free to visit those sites.

Another thing this means? I’m going to be in the MCS chatroom MUCH more, and I’m going to need people to talk to, so feel free to swing on by. This is going to be a full time gig for a while, so starting 8:30am EST until
