Today’s Readings

Okay, I know this has been around for a little while, but 3D printers still just blow my mind…

I am pretty ignorant when it comes to design. As such, I had never heard of Hillman Curtis, sadly, until reading of his passing. This video is a pretty cool introduction. I want to know more.

The Aurora Borealis, from above the Earth… Sweet…

And speaking of space (or sort of, anyway), here’s one more thing to occupy the free time I used to have!

Publishers love the prospect of “rejuvenation” that the iPad and it’s wanna-be-cousins have brought to their world, but I have heard more and more of these types of conversations… Soon, some day soon, even the publishing world will embrace the idea of the One Web

Ever wanted to help further science while out for a nice leisurely walk or bicycle ride? Me neither, but if you ever do, you can now help document roadkill while you’re out-and-about via the web!

And finally, ever accidentally erased something? Of course. Any chance you had a back-up? Unlikely, but congrats if you did. Ever then discover that the back-up was no good? Oh shit… And ever had all this happen to an animated movie that required some 20-30 people about a year to create? Well, that’s exactly what happened to Toy Story 2… Good thing one of the technical director was a mom!

Happy reading (and watching!),
