After going 13 months without an update it seems appropriate that our latest addition is an answer to a very timely question: "Why isn't updated more often?" Find out on the Q+A page.

Two new additions to the spacebloom catalog: ainring and wirbylet.

9 September 2006
New spacebloom, fruurberry, added to the catalog. This is a very popular spacebloom as its berries are used to make Meriberi. This triple, cold-boiled drink is created by fusing fruurberries with fluutmad berribons. Be sure to follow the precise mixing ratio 100:25, otherwise you will end up with a sugary slush. The ratio was discovered by Running Cloud and his team in 2257 while searching for Yumsun, the edible 550 SPF sunscreen frequently mentioned in the Satosei Tales. A mistake during a lab test resulted in an unusually flavoured liquid. Ten years later, the sunscreen idea is still a solar myth, while Meriberi is a true legend.

1 September 2006
Kjuip is the latest spacebloom added to the catalog. If you spot a kjuip, collect it and make your very first kjuipinni (see the recipe section). It has been said that any mathematician who tasted kjuipinni should never go hungry. Although not confirmed, it is believed that this, at least on the theoretical level, is possible. The social critic Yin Young Yoo postulated that this is not limited to mathematicians but applies to anyone who appreciates the concept of infinity. Go figure.

Aciluce's crunchy BB wafers are in constant motion. A delightful - and nutritious - breakfast for everyone as long as you avoid the impostor strain released by Healthy Baby Food Corporation. For more info see aciluce's entry on defence + hazards.

Not even a severe case of depressed time shear will stop us from publishing. Despite enormous technical challenges - midsummer dream it was not - we managed to squeeze rulitoon's information through the folds of time. Aciluce and kjuip data is currently being massaged; tired electrons floating through very special mudbaths. Enjoy your info responsibly.

The Q+A section provides a clarification on who invented the mouse along with a not too rosy outlook for the Red Sox after the year 2018.

Spring is here and with it an updated catalog section. Eliledan. Some will enjoy its cynmiklic sweetness and some will seek elildean for its wide-interest library created by an elegance miner, Effin Martix, with a bit of help from Essentences algorithm. We would love to communicate with Effin Matrix as we are dying to know more about its way of finding elegance. Right now all of our capabilities are focused on finding an open channel, one that would allow us to learn what else, beside Dekalog and Ladro di Bambini, made it into Effin's library. Stay tuned. Patience is not a virtue, it does pay off though.

It turns out the starving cloud of fuzzy micro dustballs was negatively charged by some unspecified forces created during the 2004 US presidential election. The day before the Election Day the key reading of lidenyhype was at 655 buros! The lidenyhype has come down to 121 recently (still too high for our comfort) and our connection finally appears to be stable. We are taking advantage of this situation and quickly updating the catalog section with four new spaceblooms: hagopini, orfzic, triiku and xixaxia. Thank you for being patient. More updates will follow shortly.

24 November 2004
Recent updates were sucked away by a starving cloud made of fuzzy micro dustballs that is currently sitting uncomfortably close to our one and only connection to the Moon 2267 timespace. We are diligently working on creating a stronger signal that will escape the incredible forces of this annoying cloud. Please stay tuned.

Also updated: Questions+Answers section and the book section. You can now order Spacebloom : A Field Guide to Cosmic Xflora from, or get it from one of the Vancouver area bookstores. Seattle bookstores are coming in July.

14 April 2004
Nigok (also known as redmonstrule) was added to the catalog section. Last time I talked to Awk Ro, the editor of Spacebloom : A Field Guide to Cosmic Xflora, he mentioned that nigoks and kogins are becoming quite popular now that everyone knows how to make Lipdrool, an ultracool drink with floating pretensioned sour grapes. Lipdrool is quite popular in high schools on the wrong side of the Moon. One sip and you will know why. Indeed, why?
If the conditions are right I will be talking with Awk during the next full moon night. If you have questions for Awk send them in before 4 May.

Finally! -- the pre-eminent source on space agriculture -- is up. Way up and way ahead in the future people eat crispy wafers that just a minute ago were part of an ad hoc telecommunication network (see thoerhul) or sip zippy zip, a drink made from a unique spacebloom of erratic intentions (see zippinia). Although you will not be able to taste any of these inventions for some time (give it another 250 years) you can savor them now through the most delicate sense: your mind. will be updated regularly. Come back often, read about spaceblooms, download a desktop picture, ask a question. And tell everyone whose life depends on the future.

Spacebloom is also a book. A beautiful hand-crafted artifact. All right it is hard to see why something that was printed on a 10,000 imprints-per-hour press should be called hand-crafted. But it is beautiful. In a relative way. See for yourself.

It is also unique. The only book in the whole space-time universe that carries ISBN 0-9730222-0-5 number. There is nothing relative about that.
