Pretty Spooky Coincidence

So... in my blog post for Wednesday, June 12, I brought up the topic of vertical farming, and mentioned Dr Dixon Despommier of Columbia University. While driving to work last night, I was listening to the PBS Newshour, and there was a featured story about vertical farming in Singapore, complete with an appearance by Dr Despommier:


Watch Singapore Looks Skyward to Take Farming in New Directions on PBS. See more from PBS NewsHour.

Pretty spooky, eh? Sometimes I give myself the creeps. Now I want to find out more about vertical farming in Singapore, so I'm putting out a call to the go-to guy on all Singaporean matters, Mr Simon Ooh. If the way to call Batman is to use the bat signal, they way to call Mr Ooh would be to use a durian signal... anybody got a big spotlight and a durian-shaped stencil? Postscript: Mr Ooh's birthday was a couple of days ago... happy birthday!
