The Society for Linian Studies is presented what promises to be a wonderful exhibition: "The Cognomi Theory of the Antarctic Interior
The Velaslavasay Panorama proudly welcomes an extraordinary exhibition and presentation from The Society for Linian Studies - The Cognomi Theory of the Antarctic Interior, which unearths the history of Linian Scholarship.
More than 300 years ago, a man thought lost at sea re-appeared in Italy with accounts of a civilization inhabiting the interior sea of an undiscovered southern continent. Giuseppe Cognomi composed numerous volumes on this advanced and isolated culture - which he called The Linians - and the singular environment they inhabited at the bottom of the world. Though widely disregarded by the scientific community, the tradition of Linian scholarship has been kept alive through the years by a devoted few. The Society for Linian Studies is the first organized attempt to preserve Cognomi's legacy and progress his research.
Saturday, April 11, 2009 marks the opening of The Cognomi Theory of the Antarctic Interior, an exhibit examining the fascinating but largely forgotten origins and history of Linian scholarship. The public is invited to explore the Linian Sea through a series of enlightening dioramas based on Cognomi's original drawings, and to learn about notable Linian scholars of the past along the way. The evening debut of the exhibit features a lecture from Lyman Emery, the world's leading Linian Scholar and Director of The Society for Linian Studies.
Crafted through the tireless efforts of The Society for Linian Studies, The Cognomi Theory of the Antarctic Interior will remain on view through August 16th of 2009 during our regular open hours - Friday, Saturday, Sunday 12-6pm. This is the première exhibit to be held in the recently refurbished ancillary salon of The Velaslavasay Panorama, a room which shall serve hence as host for a wide array of pleasing temporal presentations. In fitting complement to our current 360-degree arctic panorama Effulgence of the North and in this, the International Polar Year, The Cognomi Theory of the Antarctic Interior adds a southern dimension to our elucid investigations into polar regions and distant landscapes.

It’s the end of an era, sort of: Fraunhofer IIS, the developers of the MP3 audio compression format, announced that they are ceasing their licensing program. In a blog post, spokesman Matthias Rose says that it’s had a good 20-year run and is obsolete. But it’s also true that the decoding patents expired last year, […]
Freddy deBoer writes that he’s been telling the same joke for years about Silicon Valley’s only product, which might be universalized as “At last, a way to verb with nouns on the internet!” But the social-media techopoly is stable, now, and so the venture capitalists have moved on to the three terrible trends that will […]
As the old saying goes, “You should sit in meditation for 30 minutes every day. Unless you are too busy, in which case you should meditate for an hour.” Since most of us have an endless list of things to do and people to see, carving out quiet time can feel impossible, especially when most […]
