Whoa
This German art student, Benjamin Harff, decided, for his exam at the Academy of Arts, to do something only slightly ambitious -- to hand-illuminate and bind a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien's Silmarillion. I...

The G+ stream needs to scroll while the sidebars stay static. Or perhaps keep the nav bar static. Even as the Noise:Signal ratio improves there's still A LOT going on and switching circles, hangouts, etc. is wearing out my scroll wheel.

In Gay Talese's famous Esquire profile of Frank Sinatra, he describes the lasting impact of a brief interaction between Sinatra and screenwriter Harlan Ellison. "The whole thing had lasted only about three minutes," Talese wrote of their exchange. "And three minutes after it was over, Frank Sinatra had probably forgotten about it for the rest of his life--as Ellison will probably remember it for the rest of his life: he had had, as hundreds of others before him, at an unexpected moment between darkness and dawn, a scene with Sinatra."
The same could be said of Steve Jobs and those fortunate enough to have experienced their own scene with the recently resigned Apple CEO. Many who have met Jobs describe their encounters, however brief or inconsequential, as magical--life altering, even. A brush with Jobs can be overwhelming: as inspiring as a handshake from Neil Armstrong, as intimidating as a confrontation with Mike Tyson, as intoxicating as a tour from Willy Wonka. "So I just met Steve Jobs," recalled one New Yorker last year. "All I could muster is, 'I love Apple.'"
A similar sentiment poured out across the web this week, as news of Jobs's retirement made the rounds. On Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, Facebook, fans and colleagues alike described some of their most memorable moments with Apple's chief executive and visionary. Below, a collection of the better anecdotes out there, along with some stories sent to us directly, that show just how influential Jobs has been.

The winning bid for the design of the Olympic village in Rio is based on the shape of tropical flowers, and is designed to be replaced with more needed buildings once the games are over.
