Nowhere Farm is a place I’ve had pictures of in my mind for a long time, from the stories that have been shared by Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist of Over The Rhine. I’ve always pictured a beautiful piece of ground with flat land, black earth and a calming quiet that we’re in need of all too often.

Last year attended The 99% Conference in NYC and one of the keynote speakers was Robert Hammond who (along with Joshua David) spearheaded the project. Rober
This evening I had the best cab driver ever, leaving the SXSW Interactive festival. Driving through the streets of Austin, he asked if we had ever heard the story behind the many moonlight towers that light up the city. What follows is HIS account of how the moonlight towers came into being, with links I found that have a more detailed account of the story and the history associated with them. Austin was home to the
