A story about a recent experience, and why you should keep going even if doubt creeps in

hey friends, if you're in the SF area (or at a really awesome bookstore that carries lots of magazines), pick up the Sept. issue of 7x7 Magazine.

Our friend Daniel Burka is wearing Fifth&Brannan in his two-page spread, surrounded by some other really cool products.

Worst thing about free @spotify so far? When ads end, but the player doesn't autoplay the next track.

Then you're stuck in post-ad silence and the app doesn't allow you to advance to the next song, so you have to restart the program.

Anyone else experiencing this? Other thoughts re: Spotify so far?

on EG: look great outside the office, too. (+ win a great pair of pants):

I'm encouraging you to blur the lines a bit between dressy and casual.

Why is it when you add any add-ons to Firefox, you have to restart the browser, but Chrome just installs them and they magically work, no restarting necessary? Cmon, Firefox.

web friends / designers / dev peeps, riddle me this:

how important is white space on a website? and why? and how do you use it?

let's hear it.

White space ... is THE space. It's everything that isn't, thereby enunciating or illuminating everything that IS. White space frames text, frames images. It's what you don't see, so that you can focus on what you do see. It's possibly the most critical layout element all designers can manipulate, and one that most people rarely understand.

There are a couple books on my To Buy list, but I can't decide if they'll be better read as physical books or on (iPhone app) Kindle.

Have you bought a digital book recently, and wished you bought a physical copy instead (or vice versa)?

+Leo Babauta when you're on a page and a link takes you to an external site, but doesn't open up in a new window / tab, how do you feel?

Tumblr is an interesting beast. I was around when blogging first gained momentum, and to me it's always been about creating original content.

Then I read comments on people's Tumblr pages saying to the owner "I LOVE your blog OMG!!!", but in reality it's just a clusterfuck of re-posted images and quotes and shit OTHER people created.

What do you think? Do you consider Tumblr a blog?

It's curation vs. creation. While it's true curators don't "create" the content, they do aggregate, organize and publish it. That deserves some credit.
