Bucky and Randy

With the Whitney exhibition on show, Bucky Fuller has again caught people's attention recently. A friend asked me, "What's so great about Fuller? Almost everything he invented failed." I didn't think too much and said, "maybe a positive attitude?" 

Now reading "The Last Lecture" book, i think i actually got a point - one's legacy can we way beyond materiality. Randy Pausch and Bucky Fuller had the same optimistic anticipatory attitudes. They are both dreamers, and both really tried to achieve their dreams. Randy never gave up. He said, "the brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want it badly enough. They're there to stop the other people." So as Bucky, not even after Dymaxion car crashing, Dymaxion houses leaking...

- "What time does the park close?"
- "It is open until 8 p.m."
