#R2BC Thursday’s #GoodNews – Want Moore

Some stunning stories today, so it’s a little difficult to pick a favourite.

One thing that has definitely made me smile, though not something I’d usually list, is a look at the teams for the 6 Nations. The reason for the nod? Well for once, with the competition starting this week, there is a a review of the Women’s teams and it is displayed prominently of the BBC Sport’s Front Page. So I doff my virtual cap to the folks at BBC Sport.

The other big surprise has been the US Communications Regulator, the FCC, coming out in an article with Wired in support of Net Neutrality. Net Neutrality has been a thorny subject, especially in the US, but with the FCC to class the internet as a Utility and ISPs as providers the Net can hopefully remain a place for free thought and incredible innovation.

If pushed to pick an absolute favourite today it would likely be the announcement that works, including some unseen works, by seminal 20th Century Sculptor Henry Moore will go on show in London. I’ve always loved Moore’s work, not least for the reason that it’s art designed to be touched, to be engaged with, and to appeal to all our senses. Where classic works so often sit out of reach Moore’s art was intended to open people’s eyes and bring art into their everyday lives. Living in Sheffield and seeing the same goals espoused by the Ruskin Collection it’s hard not to smile. Definitely worth a look if you get the chance.
