Marketplace of Ideas

Happy March Equinox, 2005. On the season page, find links to related events of the day. Most important is the World Wide Panorama project, with the theme of Marketplace. After the introduction on this page, find links to my QTVR panorama and QuickTime audio entries to the event, and an alternative Java applet version.


The sound wave says, "From the Frank Stanton Studios in Los Angeles, this is Marketplace". The program is on public television, which is a marketplace of ideas.

The sound is from the public radio web site: http://marketplace.publicradio.org. See also: http://www.pri.org/PublicSite/listeners/programs/pop_up/marketplace.html, http://minnesota.publicradio.org/, and http://www.americanpublicmedia.org/. Frankly, I haven't figured out who does what where in these interlinked organizations.

The background images are from an Mandala Sand Painting event. The Tibetan Buddhist monks promote compassion for all beings. They also have things to sell, perhaps a modern form of the ancient begging bowl. Vibrations come on the airwaves, which are free and yet the most basic form of market place. See their pages at http://www.mysticalartsoftibet.org and http://www.drepung.org/.


Marketplace of ideas: page 309 of The Lady and the Monk, Four Seasons in Kyoto by Pico Iyer, Alfred A. Knopf, NY 1991"... even a business man or a journalist had something to gain from a night in a monastery, and a taste of stillness. One had to learn how not to spend time, "

About the panorama

Be prepared to hear the sound of the wave above and the monks chanting. Turn it off if you please.

See a resizable Full-Screen (1MB page) version of this panorama (500KB page) or a smalller alternative Java applet version.
