It’s about that time for another edition of my links roundup. (Just as a friendly reminder, it’s easy to subscribe to my links with the Sidenotes RSS feed.) Anyway, it was another busy week, hence the serious slowdown in posts. I’ve been averaging just about three a week, which isn’t terrible, but I think I can do better. Anyway, that’s enough blabbering, here’s what you’ve all been waiting for:
- Mark Boulton writes everything you could want to know about Gill Sans, the typeface the BBC and Church of England amongst others.
- An amazing Notorious B.I.G. video done entirely with the typeface Baskerville Old Face. There’s something incredibly poetic about seeing a man known for his words celebrated in type.
- Andy Hume discusses the similarities and differences between typography on the web and in print.
- Part of the Signal vs. Noise Small Biz 101 series (1, 2), Ryan Carson lets the world know most successful entrepreneurs’ dirty little secret: “They didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know if they were going to be successful when they started.”
- Particletree covers the boring bits of starting a business (accounting, bookkeeping, incorporating, oh my!).
- Airbag Industries makes some big time 2006 predictions. (“Having written an app for everything already, Google will unveil an API to their cafeteria allowing bloggers to choose what employees will eat at lunchtime Ã¢â‚¬â€ Lutefisk will go ranked number 1 for 47 weeks straight.”)
- New York Times Consumed columnist Rob Walker discusses CafePress and the idea of “Mass-Produced Individuality”.
- Stylus Magazine’s lists their top 50 singles and it includes my guilty pleasure Robyn – Be mine.
- In geek related news, Microsoft announced it will use Firefox’s little orange RSS symbol in it’s own products.
That’s it for today. GO BEARS! Have a great weekend.
