Awesome. Reminds me of Larry Kagan’s work.

“Carousels are effective at being able to tell people in Marketing/Senior Management that their latest idea is on the Home Page.

Use them to put content that users will ignore on your Home Page.

Or, if you prefer, don’t use them. Ever.”


Should I Use A Carousel?

Great explanation of why not to use carousels presented as a carousel (and hence, very frustrating). It surprises me that more people don’t know there is tons of data out there about what works and what doesn’t on websites. Or that they can test themselves. Web != print…

(and to all you drivers who stop at rotaries, yield != stop.)

There’s more art on the Internet than in every gallery and museum on Earth. But many of these beautiful objects are trapped. They’re trapped inside of devices like our phones, our tablets, our TVs, our laptops — devices designed for distraction, living between texts, tweets, football games and emails from work. So we’re making a new way to bring art from the Internet into your home.

Electric Objects - A Computer Made For Art

This is pretty awesome. I’d like to see a software component so I could do this with my old stuff.

Semi-related, I’d like to see some android builds that were made for similar purposes. $50 trade-in on a phone isn’t worth it if I could have used my phone to control my lights/nest/wemo etc. A new controller to do the same thing would cost more than $50, and the phone would be a better tool from a tech perspective.

I have 3 old phones mounted throughout my house for this purpose, but I haven’t created a custom build for them…

Make the secret a lot more trouble than the trick seems worth. You will be fooled by a trick if it involves more time, money and practice than you (or any other sane onlooker) would be willing to invest.

Aleister Crowley defined magick[sic] as “the Science and Art of causing change to occur in conformity with Will.” Also accepted by many is the related definition purported by ceremonial magician Dion Fortune, who declared that “Magic is the art and science of changing consciousness according to the Will”.[28]

Clever marketing from a stock photo site. The meaning of words is probably not the first thing one thinks of in relation to stock photos – until you start searching for them.
