A Few Things I Missed on Vacation

The internet never sleeps…

Cameron Koczon wrote a brain-expanding article on some thoughts about Orbital Content he shared at Greenville Grok. “We are on the cusp of a complete overhaul of the way in which we interact with online content, and I think you should be a hell of a lot more excited than you currently are.” Indeed.

Speaking of Grok, Matthew got around to articulating his thoughts on the event. 

How are my tax dollars spent? Well, whitehouse.gov launched Your Federal Taxpayer Receipt to help me find out. All partisan politics aside, after spending the weekend in Washington DC, especially a few of the Smithsonian museums, I’m happy to be a tax payer.

The latest Pictory showcase Handmade: A Collaboration between Etsy & Pictory on the Art of Craftsmanship and the accompanying editorial design from Magera Moon is lovely.

Music duo Karmin have made a YouTube name for themselves doing clever covers, but this take on Chris Brown’s Look At Me Now slays. Can a white girl out-busta Busta Rhymes? Apparently so. Such great flow.

A million acres of Texas burned wild and, as with most things happening in the world, Alan Taylor is curating an amazing collection of images. This one is especially ominous. 

Frank Chimero continues to write some of my favorite things with Designer’s Poison, “the dispositions and mistakes of [our] field…things that hurt all of us.” I, like Naz, particularly enjoyed the section on villainizing criticism.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled interneting.
