So excited about the launch of this new multimedia ebook by Peter Krogh. Really inspired to digitize my own family history now. (Sigh... Wish I'd done so before all my grandparents had passed on.) #CameraScans #SaveFamilyPhotos #DAMUseful

NYTimes: Against ‘Sustainability’: "Perhaps this revised language will allow us to see the planet not as a video-game landscape, programmed by God, that we’ve been dropped into and can either preserve or destroy, but as a bustling world of colleagues, both human and nonhuman, animate and inanimate, over whom we have influence, but who also influence us."

A great first day at ASEAN Women's Private Sector Tourism Forum with inspiring speakers and >100 women leaders from the region. I'm excited to see the potential of the networking and policy changing power we have in this room.

Sacks at ease. "...one can feel that one’s work is done, and one may, in good conscience, rest."

"The power to deliver excellence is now beyond the capacity of any one individual or a single discipline team, and the need to collaborate with others who excel in different areas is paramount for success.

"But collaboration is not as easy as it sounds. Humility, trust and generosity are required to accept feedback on your half-finished work, explain its intentions in ways that others can comprehend, understand why feedback is important, honor others’ concerns and value their expertise as much as your own. Egos need to be left at the door – the age of the rock star designer is fading fast."
Yes, absolutely.
Thank you, Fred Deakin.

I was introduced to Blendle at SXSW and was fascinated by this micropayment-financed and typography-forward model. Intriguing: if a reader doesn't think the story they paid for was worth it, they can get a refund. Bravery, it has transpired, that pays.

A caring but carefully blunt take on why selective amnesia on context is good for the design process. Its's always about the user, not the creator's constraints, duh.

I think his 'fair trade' point is a really good one. As an author, knowing who your readers are, and having their permission to contact them: that's SUCH an under-valued resource. The likes of Amazon don't have to own that relationship. It's a priceless commodity.

Revolutionary wonk indeed.
"Paperight’s new licence could be revolutionary … It’s wonky – in the nerdy, civil service sense of the word – but it might just work."
