The Gross-Food Movement

It doesn’t get more heroic than the Bacone. Created for a competition at a recent San Francisco installment of Bacon Camp (“an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment about bacon”), the Bacone is a food-engineering feat: a crisp cone of deep-fried bacon filled with scrambled eggs, cheese, and hash browns, topped with a layer of country gravy, and crowned with a biscuit. Kind of like a breakfast ice cream cone without the sugar high.

A Life Well Wasted Episode 3

Robert Ashley wonders why he spends his free time playing videogames, asks random people on the street about it, talks to a researcher whose work attempts to harness the brain power wasted on gaming, gets to know an eccentric, forward-thinking game designer who lives sustainably with his family of four on $14,000 a year, and gets a first-hand account of what it’s like to work on terrible games (and what it’s like to get terrible reviews) from an anonymous game developer.
