Leonardo da Vinci
by Walter Isaacson. I don’t ready many biographies, but I enjoyed this. The book is detailed without becoming boring (of course the subject matter helps a lot), and I really like the way Isaacson structured the book as a balance between a straightforward chronology and sections that focus on different themes or aspects of Leonardo’s work or personality that spanned across his life. Also appreciated that Isaacson clearly calls out places where he’s providing his own opinion and summaries of larger debates about aspects of Leonardo’s life. One thing that stuck with me were the number of things that Leonardo discovered apparently before any other published accounts, but never published himself: detailed description of the nature of friction, all of human anatomy, a correct explanation of how the valve leading from the heart to the aorta works. Had he published these things, he would have been recognized as a scientific genius in or shortly after his time — in some way it’s just through a series of happy accidents that we happen to have his notebooks, which is the only way we know the extent of his development of these different fields. A nice reminder to myself — without publishing, it’s a though you never did it. Interesting book; plus it has lots of pictures.

Resilient Web Design book
I wrote this book to highlight some of the approaches to web design that have proven to be resilient. I didn’t do this purely out of historical interest (although I am fascinated by the already rich history of our young industry). In learning from the past, I believe we can better prepare for the future.
