Creative Review: How to Have a Good Idea

"Instead of sitting at your computer, and looking at books, go...and sit there. The way to get an interesting idea is to go to the source. Stay there until you have thought of something interesting about [it]. Then, listen to that idea and it will design itself." - Bob Gill #

Bret Victor - Inventing on Principle on Vimeo

Last week I finally watched this presentation by Bret Victor. Although he's not a very engaging presenter, his content is impeccable.

A Victim Treats His Mugger Right : NPR

"Hey, wait a minute. You forgot something. If you're going to be robbing people for the rest of the night, you might as well take my coat to keep you warm." I'd like to think I'd do the same in Diaz's position. #

Calvin and Hobbes, October 11, 2009

With Fall upon us and Winter just around the corner, I'm always saddened to have the weather get uncomfortably cool. Every year it feels like warm weather doesn't last long enough. #

2009.08.05 ‘Take Back the Beep’ Campaign

David Pogue has nailed it. I can't tell you how frustrating all voicemail introductions (or company-mandated instructions) are. I obviously want to leave a message. I know the routine. Just give me the beep back. #

2009.05.08 BBC - Monster Wave Gives up its Secrets

A super slow-motion video of a fabulous wave. Although I've always wanted to surf well enough to ride a wave like that, I liked the shot at about 11 seconds in to be just as cool. #

2009.01.26 Read This Post. Do Not Pass Go. Do Not Collect $200

A few facts about some of your favorite (at least, my favorite) games. I love Neatorama's investigatory articles on stuff like this. Mainly just foodforthought, and interesting trivial knowledge. #

2007.10.16 A List Apart: Articles: Findings From the Web Design Survey

Really interesting to me - both as a web guy as well as a number cruncher. #
