Today I’m going to copy the things magazine style of blogging and link presentation. Michael McDonough’s Top Ten Things They Didn’t Teach Me at Design School offers some sage advice. // Another step in the right direction, a judge allows the testimony of a doctor with years of research into prenatal pain in unborn children. Mayhap soon this abominable practice will be outlawed. // The Defective Yeti needs to rearrange his office because of women. I can understand his predicament. // This article on how difficulties in recognizing ones own incompetence can lead to inflated self-assessments looks interesting enough to read. // The Fishbowl gives us the rules of argument. Take note, they’re good. // Like Murphies laws, Wiio’s laws of Communication describe in pessimistic detail certain truths about society.

That red of white motif is striking. // Orbit 1 has a really cool cityscape on display with an ethereal quality that lends itself to an empty and disconnected feeling. // Mike Golding has a nice shot of The London Eye, a ferris wheel like structure that stands 135 meters high. nice. // Food 4 Eyes luxuriates in verduous saturation. // Deceptive Media’s composition of a trash collector is poignant and well done in black and white.
Personally, I like this Way. It works for me, but I’ve also heard some people complain (on other blogs) about a lack of whitespace preventing easy reading. Hmmm. I am also getting into this style, but it raises the question as to whether I’m running two blogs, or a blog and a link dump. Oh well.
I’ve long wanted to implement a link log similar to anil’s or dive into mark’s, but a little bit of laziness and a lot of other work has prevented me. I finally started using the kottke method because it didn’t require any infrastructure changes and it has grown on me.
