Logos
I had forgotten some of these - so that says something, I think. But looking at recent history the logos go together with the opening ceremonies, and are only part of the story. Also, I agree with one of the commenters on the article that says that the Beijing logo is underrated - it mixed ancient calligraphy with modern trends and was quite well done and creative.
AIGA just published a fantastic rundown of all Olympic logos, as graded by Milton Glaser. Glaser is a legend, having created some of the…

I just love Deadpool...that's it...
Perhaps this could be considered a victory lap for Deadpool outgrossing Batman V Superman in the domestic box office despite having one-fourth of the production budget. Marvel is currently putting out a Spider-Man and Deadpool team-up series, and the issue on stands now — Spider-Man/Deadpool #6 — pokes

Colors
It is a truism and a  that as a guy I am not that attuned to color - "Looks like to blue to me" when my wife is trying to decide between shades or, well, blue. To her there is a world of difference between shades of aqua. I am more concerned if this is blue or green...it kinda looks blue to me.

You know how some people are cursed with perfect pitch? Others are supertasters. Me? When it comes to food if it doesn't run faster than me it is fuel for the body. This morning I was actually toying with the idea of putting coffee in my cereal, instead of milk - I did enjoy the imagined screams of disgust from wife and kids - but I figured it might be more efficient?

Having said all this I do like the names of the pantone colors - they are evocative, even if for the life of me I cannot (without cheating and looking at the chart) figure out what color "fallen rock" should be other than, well, brown?

+Ralph Uy and +Adam Campbell - who can probably translate pantone to hex...

There's some interesting ideas here - especially good for those of a creative bend...but also quite healthy for those not-so-creative and who sit in front of their computers all day - go outside! Look at something!

OMG - this brought a tear (of joy) to my eye - it's as if I wrote it m'self! Simply beautiful. It's even spelled "realise' and "analysing" right! :)

tl;dr (but really you should read the whole thing):

This:
"America has a deeply confused understanding of liberalism, neo-liberalism, conservatism and progressivism. Thanks to the outsize influence of US politics on global discourse, this confusion is slowly infecting other countries. It’s a dangerous disease because it prevents the articulation of a consistent framework for analysing policy, which leaves the voter in thrall to sloganeering, issue-baiting and crude policies formulated along only vague ideological grounds."

And this:
"It is important to stress that all of these streams in the history of ideas and politics have made invaluable contributions to human progress. That’s one reason why democracies almost always operate at the centre of politics. None of these -isms are outright wrong or evil. Arguably the more extreme arms of each paradigm are a little on the silly side, but that’s an argument for another time."

And OMG this:
"What we need now is to get these concepts straight. When progressives can call universal freedom of speech neoliberal, when immigration control is considered conservative in a country built by migrants, when people think classical liberalism advocates for government being limited to a certain portion of GDP, and when the party of neoliberals doesn’t realise that there are very strong theoretical and empirical reasons to believe a single-payer health care system is the most economically efficient way to deliver health insurance, you know your politics is suffering for lack of conceptual clarity."
America has a deeply confused understanding of liberalism, neo-liberalism, conservatism and progressivism. Thanks to the outsize influence of US politics on global discourse, this confusion is slow…

Mobile
A couple of slides had me laughing...especially "A drone is a smartphone that flies" and when talking about cars "Driverless cars = Horseless carriages."

The universality of the smartphone is fascinating to me. As a low-phone user who has only two types of callers, my wife and opinion poll/telemarketers, I do find it fascinating that for my teen son the phone is everything - his TV, his communication device, his game machine. I just found out that he does not write down his homework - he walks into class and takes a picture of what the teacher put on the board.

Somebody, somewhere has got to dust off Clockwork Orange (the book, not the movie) and re-write it with some of these new trends. Burgess (and everyone else) did not predict the capacity to film/photograph everything. The more horrendous violent scenes in Orange, if imagined today, would most certainly include the filming of it - and then the bragging online about it etc.

Of course it is likely the next generation or two will find it amusing that we actually carried little bricks around. I am not convinced, yet, that we will embed computers in ourselves, at least not until it is more like a tattoo. What I think will happen is that the Internet of Things will supplant even mobile devices. I think we will have some sort of fob or something that will allow us to access (and be accessed by) all devices around us - a la Minority report. Why would I carry a phone when I can just speak up and a phone-enabled car/toaster/public toilet seat will make the call for me?

Anyway, I wish I had the whole live presentation as well.

Science!
Good to see that some real research is being done out there!

+Adam Campbell and +Ralph Uy. I +Nicola Smith might not be against reviewing this work for publication either...
Students at the University of Leicester have been using simple calculations to explain the feasibility of the powers behind of some of the most prominent comic book superheroes known around the world.

Moral courage
Really interesting work done here. It tells the "stories of people who are standing up when others want them to sit down. Whether they are confronting a bully, challenging their culture, or simply seeking truth, the agents of moral courage refuse to fail."

These are my heroes, for sure.

Perfection
It is fun when we find someone whose work is in, for lack of better term, our lineage. If that person is a matter of the craft then we are the ones hoping to join their lineage. If that person is younger (in the craft) then we can welcome into the fold.

In this sort piece the artist talks about at as basically "mark-making" - nothing else. Music, I suppose, would be sound-making and John Cage would probably agree. You could easily pare down the other arts, I think, to similar "makings".

Excuses
I mean really, is this any different, or better, than the reasoning we give for invasion of other countries? At least this had the slight added benefit of involving done sort of literary sleuthing.

Moon Knight
I want Netflix to do a series with him! C'mon Netflix you can do it! Unbalanced is basically Netflix's call-name...

Leo has the heart of a troll....in his hand....with a fork in it to test if its done yet.
Introduction
“There is no one today who does not see the uselessness and injustice of collecting taxes from the toiling masses to enrich idle officials; or the senselessness of inflicting punishments on weak or depraved persons in the shape of transportation from one place to another, or of imprisonment in a fortress where, living in security and indolence, they only become weaker and more depraved; or the worse than useless and injustice, the positive insanity and barbarity of preparations for war and of wars, causing devastation and ruin, and having no kind of justification.” (Leo Tolstoy)

I am a compulsive Epicurean (not a hedonist). I have not felt, loved, and played enough, nor experienced enough saudades. I have not answered all my emails from friends and family, and might not be able to. I am looking forward to telling my grandchildren all the stories my grandparents told me about their grandparents.
