After I recommended My Struggle to a friend, she texted, “What if a woman wrote it?” I wrote back, “or an American?” and I began to wonder what would happen if the literary sensation were written not by the handsome Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgaard but by Carla Olivia Krauss...

Emily Brontë beats her dog, and why it's kind of awesome.

Using clear, non-judgmental illustrations, this Japanese poster explains straight, gay, bisexual, and asexual identities to young children.

"It wasn’t until 2014 that Google truly achieved a simple home page, even simpler than what it looked like when it first launched. It took 15 years in the making of a company to achieve this level of simplicity, and certainly not because of lack of will or talent. "
 
Design Is...
One of the best design articles I've ever read.

I found this post thanks to +Bradley Horowitz and +Bernd Rubel. I can honestly say it's one of the best articles on design I've ever read. In fact, I may make it mandatory reading for all my future potential clients. lol!

The author, +Irene Au (former head of Design for +Google) explains the importance, power, and pillars of design in a way that will make sense to anyone. If you're a CEO, you need to read this more than anyone else. 

She also gives some powerful examples of how design and #branding  go hand-in-hand (one of my favorite subjects). 

Seriously, stop reading me ramble about how good this thing is and just go read it! You'll thank me!

Our next poet laureate: that guy you accidentally read once while looking for James Wright.

'“I’m very honored and flattered to be picked, but also somewhat confused,” Mr. Wright said in a softly accented voice.'

You and me both, friend.

Mr. Wright’s work fuses the legacy of European modernism with mystical evocations of the landscape of the American South.

Tuesday morning, I logged into a chat room full of refugees of the since shuttered PUAHate forum once frequented by University of California-Santa Barbara shooter Elliott Rodger. And I stayed there, silently watching them, for 8 hours. Here's what I learned.

Surprisingly sad take on Peggy. 
As Mad Men 's most important character turned 30 this week, she's become the poster girl for making difficult life choices.

we will consume our mysteries"
