Great article about a great kid - my son Jonathan!
I love hearing about young people that have also taken an early interest, especially those who have applied that interest to accomplish amazing things! I've recently been fortunate enough to meet just...

Video of our the our team's third match at the First Lego League 2011 Toledo Qualifying Tournament. So proud of the kids on this rookie team - they earned a trip to the district tournament with this run, thanks to a nice recovery during this match.

My advice is to dive in head first and go all out. It's an amazing program...kids get a lot out of it - robotics being only part of the equation. This is my first year coaching and my son's first year competing (true for his teammates, too)...but they're already planning ahead for next year!

This is the iconic image of David Rowland's famous 40/4 chair, taken straight from his 1963 patent (US 3,080,194).

Forty of 'em, stacked in 4' of vertical distance. A simple and elegant solution to a problem.

Next time you sit in a lecture hall, library, or any other large space with lots of chairs, look closely at the chairs. Chances are they are based to some extent on Mr. Rowlands's invention... and the expired patent.

What's in a name change? Several branding lessons, to start

Read about a few branding/tm lessons I took away from a recent name change by one of my favorite newspapers.

I love my Kindle, but am disappointed with Amazon's development of the platform. The Fire has me thinking they've decided to "chase the tablet" rather than jump curves and innovate in the space they revolutionized - reading. Where is the integrated social reading experience I thought the device would bring?

That will put a dent in it. Kind of like pictures of "The War on Drugs."

I'm lusting after new office chairs right now. Somehow, I always find myself wanting an authentic Eames Lounge chair. My googling this morning found this gem from 1956 - skip to ~7:55 in the video to see "the reveal" of this icon of modern design.

Still beautiful after all these years.

I was at +Jessica Flynn's office yesterday...they have a couple lounge chairs they picked up on consignment. Jess, were those versions of Eames? They were pretty sweet looking.

I totally see such chairs in your office, Matt. Good call.
