Things that caught my eye this week:
- Read Write Web, Two Years with the iPad: Was It Worth It? Totally agree with him that the iPad is a place to consume, rather than create, content. I don’t know how people take notes on the thing; tweeting is about all I can handle on it.
- Slaw, Innovation via Google and Historypin. Historypin, described here as “a not-for-profit archives sharing project. Think Pinterest with an overarching archives purpose,” sounds pretty cool.
- Seth’s Blog, The mathematical impossibility of universal delight.
As for finding a homogeneous audience, good luck with that. The one thing that’s true of all people is that they are different from one another. What delights one enrages the other.
I struggle with this a little with my work Twitter account. In shying away from controversial subjects, I fear I may bore people. The line between being professional and being a real person with real opinions in an online environment is sometimes a difficult one to toe.
- Ms. JD, The Healthy Lawyer: Green Your Skincare Regimen. I definitely do not use 15-25 skincare products a day – way too lazy.
- Since it’s St. Patrick’s Day: these go to 11, The Eight Kinds of Drunkenness, per a book from 1592. Only 8?
Enjoy the rest of the day! It’s all kinds of humid here; feels more like the 17th of July.
When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure ’tis like a morn in spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter you can hear the angels sing,
When Irish hearts are happy all the world seems bright and gay,
And When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure, they steal your heart away.
