Alex Bogusky left his post at one of the hippest ad agencies last year. What to do, what to do? Well, he's gotten busy, and in a most interesting way. Instead of working with the past power system to create more consumerism, he moved to the Fearless Cottage and is exploring COMMON with a brand and mission that is community designed, community [...]
Google may be accused of trying to own the internet, but with the thinking that went into ArtProject, I forgive them. Explore some of the world's finest museum collections.

Had my first Tesla siting recently. Not surprisingly it was on the 101 going south through Marin County, California...lots of green there. And you can take that any way you want!

Web 3.0 from Kate Ray on Vimeo. Call it what you will : the social web, linked data, the semantic web, Kate Ray offers up a lucid 14 minute video on Web 3.0 featuring some of the brilliant minds (including Tim Berners Lee) who spend lots of brain cells and plenty of time linking us together in ways we are only beginning to fathom.
Huge fan of Maria Popova's brainpickings. Saw this video of Paola Antonelli, MoMA’s curator of Architecture and Design over there. Paola's work heralds the coming world of design and its direction. This vid gives us a glimpse into her thought process, and the humanizing of technology. Brilliant.

Tina Roth Eisenberg is a smart, creative cookie. She runs a design firm in NYC, and edits a wonderful blog called Swiss Miss. She also came up with a brilliant solution for those ubiquitous and annoying little necessities called name tags...only she calls them icebreaker tags. All I can say is: why didn't I think of this?
