I think that settles it and we can forget our last hopes about being saved / invaded by aliens. We can also kiss good bye any hope to see them: they are not hiding, they are just not here and we simply have nothing, that might attract them.

Having thiroghly read the Google's guidelines on Material Design, I was kind of surprised that the updated G+ app actually doesn't reflect the perfect example of what I've just been staring at.

This is another great reference book, this time on canned food labels designed and used from 1877 all the way throughout Meiji, Taisho and Showa periods on canned food for domestic consumption as well as for export.

The book's small format IMHO doesn't do justice to the great design works and I really wish the book would be much larger. The dust jacket with it's faux tin-coated glitter is a prime example of a truly creative approach to book covers. Showa inspired illustrations reinforce this.

Twenty-volume folios will never make a revolution. It’s the little pocket pamphlets that are to be feared.
— Voltaire

One of the more interesting reference book on books, namely on self published underground zines in this case. First edition, limited run. A very interesting hot glue binding. Acquired on my last trip to Tokyo in some hipster popup store in Shinjuku.

“I’m scared of our government and I’m disgusted by what little Silicon Valley has done to fight it” - Michael Arrington

Valley today represents typical nouveau riche attitude - they already have  learned to properly use cutlery and not to spit on the streets, but still have not realised, that with the great power comes a very great responsibility. It is really sad to see them talking about national security, but in fact all they do is cowardly hiding behind the whole "treason" reasons scared of the slightest push from the government. "Enabler" has never been a positive term, but these guys are taking it to the new low.
