The Six Main Arcs in Storytelling, as Identified by an A.I. - The Atlantic - Pocket
“This is an active area of research,” Reagan says, “and there are a lot of hard problems yet to be solved. In addition to the plot, structure, and emotional arc, to write great stories, a computer will need to create characters and dialogue that are compelling and meaningful.”

“Random Acts of Flyness” Creator Terence Nance On Making Solange’s When I Get Home Film | Pitchfork
The first jobs I had in film were making music for TV shows, opening theme songs and bumpers. Then I’d compose music for my friends’ short films. Then I would design posters and obviously, I was editing and animating and doing all that stuff. But I didn’t have a business card that said all those things. I was just like, trying to survive.

Trouble with decluttering? Being dependent on stuff is part of being human, Stanford scholar says
So it seems to me that we have to do something about our core way of being. Minimalism, the lifestyle of living with less, and other recent movements that criticize consumerism are an important step in the right direction.

But we need to do more at a global scale to bring about significant change. We need to seek social, economic and political solutions that lessen our headlong drive toward material accumulation.

New label Ifeoma takes a menswear approach to womenswear | Dazed
My mum’s favourite colours were blue and black, but when I think about a grey area, it’s an area you are refusing to acknowledge or a space you don’t understand. It’s something between here and there, neither to be accepted nor ignored. It’s just there. I thought, focusing on that grey makes sense.

Nest Founder: “I Wake Up In Cold Sweats Thinking, What Did We Bring To The World?”
“I think we have to be very cognizant of the unintended consequences, but also acknowledge them and then design them out–make sure that we are ethically designing,” he says. “This is the slowest technology will ever progress ever again in your life. It’s only speeding up. So what are we going to do as designers to bring that element in all the time?”

The Poetry of Headlines - Lingua Franca - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Google’s Richard Gingras: 8 questions that will help define the future of journalism » Nieman Journalism Lab
While technology holds great promise, it’s important to recognize that while technology has value it has no “values.” Technology, in and of itself, is not the solution. Yes, it can provide the means for solutions, but it is up to us to determine how to make it so.

We need to rethink every facet of the journalism model in light of the dramatic changes in the architecture of the news ecosystem. I’m not suggesting that everything must change, but a comprehensive rethinking is a necessary and valuable intellectual process.

“We can’t produce with the money available the kind of hand-crafted stuff I used to do,” he noted patiently. “As the world gets more complicated, as the business models morph, we have to come up with ways to leverage our resources, so we don’t spend all our time doing stuff that doesn’t matter that much.”

“What matters is the words and the pictures,” he continued. “It’s crazy for a designer to end up saying this, but Ithink if nothing else, RSS feeds on the Web taught us that people just want us to give them the content and get out of the way.”

Urge to Own That Clapton Guitar Is Contagious, Scientists Find -
The most important factor seemed to be the degree of “celebrity contagion.” The Yale team found that a sweater owned by a popular celebrity became more valuable to people if they learned it had actually been worn by their idol. But if the sweater had subsequently been cleaned and sterilized, it seemed less valuable to the fans, apparently because the celebrity’s essence had somehow been removed.

“Our results suggest that physical contact with a celebrity boosts the value of an object, so people will pay extra for a guitar that Eric Clapton played, or even held in his hands,” said Paul Bloom, who did the experiments at Yale along with George E. Newman and Gil Diesendruck.

Pitchfork: Poptimist: Poptimist #35
The provisional quality of choices is a hot topic in a world where design and services are highly iterative. Facebook has become something close to a global constant by continually changing and tweaking its service based on the real-time user data it receives-- a giant ongoing experiment in the kind of cybernetics which so fascinated Eno in the 70s. The simultaneous rise of the app as a software delivery system pushes this idea further out into consumer culture. People get used to the software they buy as iterative-- subject to continuous tinkering, upgrades, and improvements. And as that becomes the norm in one area of culture, it changes expectations everywhere else. Again, it's not unfinished-- you expect Facebook, or an app-- to work. But it's unfixed-- you don't expect it to stay the same for long.

New Yorker web editor: The site is “guided by what’s on paper” » Nieman Journalism Lab » Pushing to the Future of Journalism
The most telling change, though, is as much about philosophy as it is about design. On the re-launched site, “we put less of the magazine online than we used to,” Eskin says. It’s a choice that will likely become more common as The New Yorker’s fellow outlets make key decisions about paid content. “Especially now that ‘Information wants to be free’ is no longer an article of faith — we wanted to tell our paying subscribers that they can access everything,” he says. “And to tell our non-paying visitors that there’s a lot that they’re missing.”

[...] Social media, if it’s not already obvious to everyone, is going to continue to change everything — including publishing. And it’s a no-brainer to me that content consumption is going to be intimately if not inextricably linked with your social graph. Combine Flipboard or whatever comes along and improves upon it with the real innovation in recommendation technology that we’ll almost undoubtedly see in the next few years, and I can’t see how the 20th Century concept of a magazine can survive, even if it does look great on a tablet.

Internet Founder Tim Berners-Lee Details 4 Concerns About Future of Mobile Web (Nokia World 2010)
[...] The last point also involved a project in which Berners-Lee is involved: providing Web access to the 80% of the world that doesn't go online. He works on this issue through the foundation at, which examines the challenges in this area. Surprisingly, lack of signal with which to log onto the Web is not the main thing holding back the spread of the Web. 80% of the world has access to the Web, but, for some reason, chooses not to use it.

The cost of data is partially to blame in many cases for this, and for those who cannot afford data plans through their carriers, they're limited to SMS for sharing information. But SMS is very constraining, says Berners-Lee. What's needed instead are better, more low-cost data plans for mobile phones. [...]

It's Time to Prepare for the End of the Web as We Know It - Advertising Age - Steve Rubel
Mobile devices, by their nature, force users to become more mission-oriented. As more internet consumption shifts to gadgets, it's increasingly becoming an app world and we just live in it. Innovation, fun, simplicity and single-purpose utility will rule while grandiose design and complexity will fall by the wayside.

It won't be enough just to build branded mobile applications that repurpose content across all of the different platforms. That's like newspapers taking the print experience and replicating it on the web as they tried back in the 1990s. Rather, we will need to rethink, remix and repackage information for an entirely different modality than platforms of yore.

What the Beatles Reveal About Fame - Newsweek
If Malcolm Gladwell is right, it was the 1,200 live gigs at strip clubs in Hamburg, Germany, that made the Beatles great. But as Doggett proves, it was the particularly corrosive nature of fame that not only broke them up, but made it impossible for them to be in the same room. They never seriously considered getting the band back together, despite offers that hovered at about $1 billion.

Apple’s iPad, General Motors, and the shrinking middle of the consumer market : The New Yorker
This doesn’t mean that companies are going to abandon the idea of being all things to all people. If you’re already in the middle of the market, it’s hard to shift focus—as G.M. has discovered. And the allure of a big market share is often hard to resist, even if it doesn’t translate into profits. According to one estimate, Nokia has nearly twenty times Apple’s market share, but the iPhone alone makes almost as much money as all Nokia’s phones combined. But making money by selling moderately good products that are moderately expensive isn’t going to get any easier, which suggests a slight rewrite of the old Highland ballad. You take the high road, and I’ll take the low road, and we’ll both be in Scotland afore the guy in the middle.

Bruce Mau's northern exposure - The Globe and Mail
“Bruce is really good at articulating a profound definition of design so that it becomes a method of problem-solving,” says Warren Berger, whose new book, Glimmer , focuses on the transforming nature of Mr. Mau's thinking. “He's got the designer's way of turning everything on its head and challenging all the old assumptions.

“Designers are also good at empathic research, at figuring out what people need, which is what Bruce will do in Sudbury. They're also skilled at visualizing the future in front of people, in rallying momentum by making people excited about the potential of what could be.

“And they understand what to do to bring about change – it's important not to do it all at once, but to do prototypes and build failure into the process. To solve big problems and make big changes, you do it gradually, you don't do it overnight.”

Pitchfork: Grime / Dubstep
"At the moment I'm into clashing two or more musical clichés but from contrasting styles, for instance playing a classic deep house stab over a jungle sounding pad and putting them on a beat that's got some dancehall in there," he says. "The tunes I'm most proud of are the mongrels bred from lots of different styles. There's bound to be some car crashes along the way but hopefully I'll be able to spot them and stop them being inflicted on people.

"I'm exploring as many influences as possible, trying not to get too comfortable with a particular arrangement style or set of sounds. I was listening almost exclusively to jungle and d'n'b until dubstep came along so I'm new to a lot of the influences that are going in my tunes. I'll binge for a few days on a few artists who I've recently discovered, write a couple of tunes vibing off them and quickly move on."

Bokardo: Writing Microcopy
I remember the first time I realized how much even the smallest copy can matter in an interface. It was on an e-commerce project at UIE for which I had created a checkout form that asked for billing information. I had coded up a system to notify me when an error occurred (even if people can overcome the error it was very helpful to know when one occurred). I kept getting notifications of billing address errors…it turns out that transactions were failing because the address people were entering didn’t match the one on their credit card.

The weird science of stock photography. - By Seth Stevenson - Slate Magazine
While it's fun to ponder which future trends Getty's seers are banking on, it can also be illuminating to learn which sorts of images have been most attractive to their clients in the recent past. Getty's Web site gets more than 3 million unique users each month, all scouring it for purchasable content. Getty gave me lists of the most popular search terms on their database for 2006, 2007, and the first half of 2008. Only three entries showed up in the top 10 on all three lists: business, people, and woman. (Woman climbed from eighth to fifth to first, which Waggoner attributes to the increasing global presence of women in the workplace and thus the increasing global demand for photos and video depicting women in the workplace.)
