Wednesday linkfest

Here are this week’s links:

  • Behind the scenes at Pixar – it’s not all fun and games.  Intensity works both ways.
  • What to do when they mix up your talk – Great story of things going wrong at a tech conference – they posted the wrong title and description, so to the audience, he was giving the wrong talk. Talk about tough.
  • Slow news movement? – From the article it seems Gilmour hasn’t read Amusing ourselves to death, which argued for a kind of slow news, or at least news as divorced from entertainment centric advertising fodder pretending to be news.  Sadly it’s good thoughtful blog posts like this one that won’t be on the top or digg or twitter trends any time soon.
  • Innovation on the highways – The French Intersection – It’s hard to sort out the original announcements, but this blog post explains how The Diverging diamond design improves safety and reduces traffic. If it works, it’s pretty darn clever.

    Thanks for the link. It was touch-and-go on the wrong topic talk, but it worked out OK.


    P.S. I’m a he, not a she. :)

      Whoops – not sure why I assumed gender, really had no reason to guess either way as I didn’t read the byline. Fixed now. Sorry!
