The Chicago design list is a master Facebook list of 147 design agencies and  organizations based in Chicago. 

» Follow this list on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lists/10156657904360534

» See a listing of exactly who is included: http://www.mattmaldre.com/2016/03/23/chicago-design-facebook/

I combed through Facebook to find all the design agencies and design organizations in Chicago that have a Facebook Page. Also included are Chicago advertising agencies, employment agencies, marketing agencies, and school design programs.

Find any missing from this list? Please let me know in the comments either here on Google Plus, or on my mattmaldre.com blog post. Thank you.

Interesting! I thought AMP was only for mobile, but it looks like in the screenshot on this blog post, that AMP pages will appear at the top of desktop search results too.

While walking along the Chicago Riverwalk with my wife, the river had just been dyed green hours earlier for the annual St. Patrick's Day festival. The river has a surreal green glow that could be seen in the metal under the bridge. Knowing that HDR photos bring out the the slightest bit of color, I knew that the green under the bridge would be captured. What I didn't foresee was the purple tones in the background. The intense green forces the background into a purple tones with the blues from the sky. The Wendella boat roaides can be seen in the left background.

This massive double-leaf, double-deck bridge is constructed with a split down the middle between the two directions of traffic. Walking under the bridge, you can definitely see bright light shining between these two sections. Especially cool here is how that light is a purple light. You can also see how the light falls onto the river.

With the longer exposures of an HDR photo shot at f22, the river gets a smooth ice-like look.

Meaning of the word "digital" is returning back to its original 1342 use

Just what does "digital" mean? Take a look at the etymology of digital; and how today's computers are returning back to the original meaning.
