The Nonsensical is back for another week and we’ve dug around the internet for the best bits – aiming to bring you some delicious brain food for your curious, collaborative minds.

This week we’ve got an amazing development from the NYTimes Labs around how Permeable Publishing systems, like their Membrane, could support new forms of communication, communities, and journalism. On the lighter side of life, Paint isn’t dead and Wired have come up with a list of some pretty cool toys to encourage curiousity for kids (which we are all for!).

*Enjoy*

Thank god

These clever toys will help spark your kids’ curiosity

So these are pretty cool if you want your kids to grow up asking better questions…
