You take the word interactive. I’m pretty sure I was grown-up before I first heard that term. Maybe it had something to do with a kids’ tv show -- you sent for a plastic sheet to stick on your tv screen, and then maybe there were crayons involved, perhaps to achieve a primitive form of color tv? An early first attempt at interactivity? Does that ring a bell with anyone?
When I learned what upcycling is, I realized a new word isn’t really needed at all. In the real estate world the process has been known for some time as adaptive re-use. If you've ever seen Union Station in Washington D.C., it's a fine example.
What I did the other day was simply effect the adaptive re-use of organic gluten-free yuppie corn flakes.
