Bruce Schneier: "The unrelenting horizonlessness of the Covid world"

23 de setembre[ —]
At CNN, Boing Boing pal and security researcher Bruce Schneier and Harvard media professor Nick Couldry write about acedia, "a malady that apparently plagued many Medieval monks.

The Burrito Pop seems silly at first, but it's actually a good idea

23 de setembre[ —]
A burrito's foil and paper wrapper is a joke. It tears easily and the burrito's filling spills out. The Burrito Pop solves this problem.

Synth-maker Moog's published a new book, Patch & Tweak with Moog, that aims to explain analog synths with detailed charts, glossaries and explanations of what each…

Gallery of jazz album lettering

Designer Reagan Ray isolated the lettering from various jazz album covers for a bunch of artists and made an online gallery of little cards. I love the variety and colors. But the most influential designer was probably Reid Miles, who created over 500 album covers for Blue Note Records. He pioneered the use of creatively-arranged type…

A US presidential election to-do list

23 de setembre[ —]
I am well aware that this is a vast generalization but, in my daily goings on, I encounter four types of democratic leaning voters: Despondent:  Those who feel nothing they do matters.
