  • Oh, sweet! I used to subscribe to Popular Mechanics, primarily for the projects in the back, but now I see they're available online. Now, to find a chop saw…
  • When photo cakes and Photoshop collide, the results are nothing short of delicious. *cackles*

  • via Preoccupations: via Kim (Google Reader) — http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/radio4/2009/06/good_radio_club.html: "why social listening? It's where radio's going. No one doubts that the singular and intimate experience of listening to the radio – voices and sounds from far away – will persist. But the collision of radio and the Internet is producing a kind of hybrid: personal and collective at the same time. Listeners will spend part of their time in the old radio bubble, alone with the voices they love, and part of it in this new social space, where they share those voices with others and contribute to a conversation about them. We want to test ways of organising social listening. … We're looking for ways to bring the conversation about Radio 4 programmes back into the programmes themselves."
  • Morgan Stanley’s European media analysts asked Matthew Robson, one of the bank’s interns, to describe his friends’ media habits. His report proved to be “one of the clearest & most thought-provoking insights we have seen. So we published it,” said Edward Hill-Wood, head of the team. The response was enormous. “We’ve had dozens & dozens of fund managers, & several CEOs, e-mailing & calling all day" … five or six times more feedback than the team’s usual reports. However, he made no claims for its statistical rigour."
  • Techniques to lessen handwaving freakoutery, anyone?
  • Wow. Jimmy Carter is amazing. He's leaving the Southern Baptists after sixty years because he's tired of religion being used to subjugate women and justify gender-related violence. AND he's in this cool group called The Elders with people like Desmond Tutu, Muhammad Yunus, former president of Ireland Mary Robinson and women's rights advocate Graca Machel. They've got gender equality as part of their campaign (should be a given, but yay!). The guy just doesn't quit.
  • The ever-lovely Kim writes, "A friend of mine recently asked if there were any book lists out there that she could look at to try and finding some more good stuff to read. I scoffed a little inside before answering, not because it’s a bad question, but because there are just so many lists to choose from." This post has a lot of great choices.
