Today we took the kids to the San Francisco Exploratorium. They had cleverly arranged very long lines at the ticket counter, so we bought a membership to avoid having to stand for a long time. (That’ll show them!)

The Exploratorium is a really cool space, with some terrific signage and lighting. The science thingys are pretty interesting, too.

I found the film of a brain dissection pretty mesmerizing.

I’d love to be able to create spaces that are this interesting, and this all-engrossing, in conferences about the future. The Exploratorium is a bit like Disneyland: it manages to create a pretty self-contained, engaging universe, one in which you want to explore and learn, not be distracted by your e-mail.
