Nice short video on an opening/book signing in Norwich, UK (funny)(british) about Mr Bingo’s Hate Mail project.

Oliver Reichenstein (of Information Architects) doing an entertaining and interesting talk on a pertinent modern topic- too much information.

Will information technology affect our minds the same way the environment was affected by our analogue technology? Designers hold a key position in dealing with ever increasing data pollution. We are mostly focussed on speeding things up, on making sharing easier, faster, more accessible. But speed, usability, accessibility are not the main issue anymore. The main issues are not technological, they are structural, processual. What we lack is clarity, correctness, depth, time. Are the counter-techniques we can employ to turn data into information, information into knowledge, knowledge into wisdom?

omfgco:

Never stop dancing, y’all.

We have these brief lives, and our only real choice is how we will fill them. Your attention is precious. Don’t squander it. Don’t throw it away. Don’t let companies and products steal it from you. Don’t let advertisers trick you into lusting after things you don’t need. Don’t let the media convince you to covet the lives of celebrities. Own your attention — it’s all you really have.

—Good advice from Jonathan Harris (via swissmiss).
