The yurt compound of William Coperthwaite on the Blue Hill Peninsula of Maine.
No one alive has done more to promote yurts than Bill Coperthwaite. Coming across the style in a 1962 National Geographic article, he recognized in the yurt a construction method so simple and durable, that almost anyone, regardless of skill or budget, could build their own home. He’s spent the last 4 decades living off-grid, lecturing, selling plans, and leading hundreds of yurt building workshops around the globe.
Read more on Bill’s life and philosophy in his book: A Handmade Life.

Obduction by Cyan Inc.
An all-new, immersive adventure game from the award-winning creators of Myst and Riven.
I’m sure it is of no surprise to you, dear reader, but Cyan launched their Obduction Kickstarter yesterday morning! I’ve been lucky enough to help them out behind the scenes over the past couple of months, and I can’t even begin to say how exciting it is to watch this project as it moves forward.
It may not be Myst, but- like this blog- it is from, inspired by, and relevant to the Ages of Myst. Lend a hand if you can. :)
