Off The Page – David Hepworth on magazines and beyond: InPublishing
"I always think that in this day and age you should never announce what you're going to do. You should simply do it, in whatever form your budget allows you to. If it works, you'll be able to graduate to a more expensive format later. Nobody ever waited to do anything on the web."

How London’s Silicon Roundabout really got started — European technology news
Four years ago developer Matt Biddulph jokingly coined ‘Silicon Roundabout’ as a description of East London’s small but growing startup scene — now it’s become the de facto term for the area around Old Street. Here he recounts how a moment of mirth turned into a meme.

Russell Davies: If you're a planner, prepare to unleash your creative streak | Advertising news | Campaign
"Personally, for instance, I'm convinced that the most potent and fecund creative unit of the next 20 years is going to be a team of a designer and a strategist. That's who businesses will want solving their problems. Could you do that? Can you talk about affordances and desire paths and say "canonical" a lot?"

stamen design | About Stamen
"At Stamen’s core is a commitment to extending our understanding through research projects. Our client work is full of opportunity for invention and discovery, and suggests inspirations beyond the immediate task at hand. Stamen’s close engagement with technology leads us to explore numerous research projects, which have a way of finding applications in the real world. We are neither a research and development lab, nor a straight up design firm. Stamen is something in between and among and around these things: a place where work is valued, where good ideas can come from anywhere, and results are paramount."

Creatives are precious... and that’s the problem | Opinion | New Media Age
" If we want to create provocative, challenging and culturally relevant digital work, we need to smash the hen-house and go free-range. We need to embrace the un-team and the un-process. We need to borrow from the places where real innovation is occurring: the world of hack-days, collaboration, open-sourcing, ring-fenced R&D time and incubators. Clinging to outdated idea-farming methods just because they’re reliable and predictable is a surefire route to extinction. "

russell davies: what would clay do?
Very good post from the planner Russell Davies. He's right about this “The discipline here was that the invitation says that it’s going to be fun even if two dozen of you show up,” and he's right about this "we're not pretending to be working too hard" lots of small companies pretend to work too hard. And he's right about this "we're not willing to do all that disruption/us-versus-the-dinosaurs talk".

And to think I thought it was all cute tactics.

In other words, were new choices created not only about the product, service or experience but about the business goal itself? Did a product become a sevice?"
