    Bottling Wine in Italy

    September 9th, 2010

    Last week 10 (101) people bottled 17,620 (1.7 x104) bottles of wine at a small family run vineyard in Montalcino, Italy.  A large truck contains the bottle machine and travels from vineyard to vineyard in the area.  The wines were removed from the casks and put into bottles to make room for the new wine.  The grapes will be harvested the end of September for this years wine.

    One Million Pennies

    September 3rd, 2010

    The Eames Office is collecting 106 pennies, 106 = 1,000,000 (0ne million) = .01 (a penny) x 1,000,000 = $10,000 (104).  As part of the Eames Office exhibition Powers of Ten: A Rough Sketch for a Proposed Exhibition on Scale, we started with 0.2 x 106 = 200,000 pennies and hope to reach our goal of 106 pennies by 10/10/10.

    Contribute your pennies at the Eames Office.  We will be donating our pennies to the TreePeople.
