Since I know that people seem to enjoy these link entries, here’s a quick roundup of some of my favorite links of the week.
- On Thursday all of Manhattan smelled of maple syrup. I guess at one point it was investigated as a terrorist attack . . . the most delicious terrorist attack in history.
- Stop trying to imagine what it would have been like if Fox News had been there throughout history.
- Squirrels in London are on crack. Enough said.
- Little known fact: Before he got to Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffet spent some time in Slipperynippleberg.
- It was a good week online for Renegade, going live with AfterHoursCity.com and The Color of Mystery (where you can win a Swiss bank account and a shitload of other stuff).
- A while ago I posted about someone throwing a bunch of bouncy balls down a San Francisco street, well it turns out it was a new commercial for Sony.
- Do you know the history of the Nike swoosh and that originally, it only cost $35 for the design?
- Design trends as seen by Murray Moss.
- Redesigning is all well and good, but it’s realigning that makes the real difference.
- Why the new Target ClearRX pill bottle is a great design story.
- Take a look at the design maturity continuum, I think it really speaks to the different levels of design and relates directly to A List Apart’s realignment article.
- Bears play the Lions this weekend in a huge NFC North showdown. But you know that already, right? Since you’re all already reading Da’ Bears Blog?
That’s it for tonight. Happy Halloween. Enjoy yourself. Trick or treat responsibly.
For anyone interested, and if you’ve made it this far I’ll assume you are, I am dressing up as a semi-colon for Halloween.
I am a geek.
