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.

I may be a bit late to this one but Framer.js is a really nice-looking prototyping tool.  It acts as a bridge between Photoshop and some generated HTML/Javascript, and allows for rapid interface stuff, including all kinds of animated transitions and events.

The Great Discontent: Frank Chimero is a relatively lengthy interview with the designer and illustrator.  It’s a refreshingly real and intelligent conversation about work, life, and things in between.
When Frank first popped up on the internetosphere I couldn’t stand the thought of him- he struck me as a smug knowitall with a penchant for bookish web typography.  Once I found out he’d taught design, serviced a ton of respectable clients and produced a large body of nice work I bought his book, and then learned he’s got a deep insight into things as well as a decent sense of humor and humility.
Also, he used to make Winamp skins, which earns extra points in my book.
