Why I Have No Interest In Being Your Friend « Thought Catalog
I don’t want to be friends with you because we hang in different crowds. You go to sports bars and listen to Rob Thomas on your iPhone and have a casual belief in Jesus Christ. I don’t. … I didn’t make the rules, okay? The high school cafeteria did!

Jonathan Ive on Steve Jobs
"And just as Steve loved ideas, and loved making stuff, he treated the process of creativity with a rare and a wonderful reverence. You see, I think he better than anyone understood that while ideas ultimately can be so powerful, they begin as fragile, barely formed thoughts, so easily missed, so easily compromised, so easily just squished."

Not only did Time, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Newsweek stop their production cycles on a dime and revamp with well-thought out and brilliantly-designed special issues, but they also, with covers, photos, and graphic treatments, helped drive the whole worldwide conversation about the "meaning" of Steve Jobs, turning a moment of sorrow into one of inspiration and creativity.

via Frank : Good art is a kind of magic. It does magical...
"Good art is a kind of magic. It does magical things for both artist and audience. We can have long polysyllabic arguments about how to describe the way this magic works, but the plain fact is that good art is magical and precious and cool. It’s hard to try and make good art, and it seems to me wholly reasonable that good artists should be concerned with their work’s cultural reception." — David Foster Wallace

Some curate content with an algorithm, while others use a team of editors. Some have made partnerships with publishers, while some are charging ahead without them. And there are other differences too, in areas like customization, sharing and price. To see how some of the new aggregators stack up, check out our chart below.

CSS: Taking control of the cascade - (37signals)
We’ve been using and refining these techniques since early in the summer and we’re very happy with the results. Our stylesheets are logical and carefully controlled. We find that once they get used to the SCSS syntax new people brought onto the project pick up the mental model of the app styles quickly without the mess of the specificity arms race. We’re also seeing better collaboration between designers and programmers who can more easily parse our logical CSS. JavaScript also benefits from these predictable selectors.

How Steve Jobs handles trolls (WWDC 1997) - garry's posterous
The hardest thing is: how does that fit in to a cohesive, larger vision, that’s going to allow you to sell 8 billion dollars, 10 billion dollars of product a year? And, one of the things I’ve always found is that you’ve got to start with the customer experience and work backwards for the technology”. You can’t start with the technology and try to figure out where you’re going to try to sell it. And I made this mistake probably more than anybody else in this room. And I got the scar tissue to prove it. And I know that it’s the case. <br />
<br />
...<br />
<br />
And as we have tried to come up with a strategy and a vision for Apple, it started with “What incredible benefits can we give to the customer? Where can we take the customer?” Not starting with “Let’s sit down with the engineers and figure out what awesome technology we have and then how are we going to market that?” And I think that’s the right path to take.

Daring Fireball: Resigned
Apple’s products are replete with Apple-like features and details, embedded in Apple-like apps, running on Apple-like devices, which come packaged in Apple-like boxes, are promoted in Apple-like ads, and sold in Apple-like stores. The company is a fractal design. Simplicity, elegance, beauty, cleverness, humility. Directness. Truth. Zoom out enough and you can see that the same things that define Apple’s products apply to Apple as a whole. The company itself is Apple-like. The same thought, care, and painstaking attention to detail that Steve Jobs brought to questions like “How should a computer work?”, “How should a phone work?”, “How should we buy music and apps in the digital age?” he also brought to the most important question: “How should a company that creates such things function?”
