A Daily Dose of Architecture: Book and Exhibition Review: Making and Provocations
In the foreground of the photo above is one of the interactive tables sprinkled about the museum. Here visitors can use the pens they picked up at the entrance to "interact" with the exhibition and the museum's collection. Visitors take the pen and click the "+" on the back of it with a matching "+" by the piece they want the pen to remember for later. The problem at Provocations is that the interactive "+"s are limited to signs, like the one below, that lay out the plan of the exhibition but are found in only a few places around the exhibition. Therefore, one cannot click the pen when looking at a model or a photograph; it can only be done after finding the layout sign and then orienting oneself to the appropriate number.

Music acts are coming to Marriott hotels to attract millennials - LA Times
Several small hotel brands, including Aloft, have turned their lobbies into small concert venues for local and lesser-known musical acts. Marriott International, one of the world’s biggest hotel companies, is taking this idea a step further by partnering with Universal Music Group, the world’s largest music company, to arrange performances in hotel lobbies by established and emerging musicians.

Nelson's Weblog: culture / cooper-hewitt-the-pen
"Aaron's mystical belief in the power of integer IDs is justified. The ID is the bolt that connects the museum’s curation expertise to the rest of the world."

Exception Monitoring and Response - GitHub Engineering
Why didn't you use an existing open source project and when will you open source Haystack?

Haystack has existed in some form or another since ~2009. I don't recall what the ecosystem was like then, but it wasn't what it is today. When we started working on updating Haystack in early 2012, we were focused on improving on our existing application. Over the years we've made a lot of changes to Haystack, many changes tied to other internal applications and the way we work, to get what you see today. The value of Haystack comes from the deep integration into our systems so it would be difficult to open-source, but we hope you can apply similar patterns to your infrastructure for better monitoring, alerting, and debugging.
