Martha Stewart, still blogging
Steady posting from her Ominmedia since 2007 in decidedly old school digs. I'd love to know the process behind it as her voice is present but she certainly can't be blogging!

Everything Paul Carroll made in 2022
I absolutely love all of this… Things made in Blender! Experiments that might have gathered dust! The delight and joy in the process! Chill sharing! Delightful and inspiring.
Making an interactive blog map
Or any sort of diagram for that matter. Tom Critchlow shares an option that uses Figma, SVGs and CSS. I had no idea this was possible — this opens up so many doors!

I wish my computer cursor was this lively
Figma has tight animations to show off new features. Dig. And yay for hanging punctuation among oodles of other improvements.

John Gruber on Wavelength
His post describes a new app for group chat, built on privacy and fortified with (deep breath) A.I. So good he’s on board and makes a compelling case as to why.
Chris Ware shares his day and process
Oh this video is gooooood. “A book itself is sort of the perfect metaphor for a human being. It’s got a front and a back. It’s got a spine, and it’s bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.”

Doug Wilson catalogs his library
From the shelving, organization, labelling and cataloging — an inspiration for anyone who appreciates everything in its right place, and accessible to share.
Naz Hamid’s personal website
For a long time this domain linked to other online homes for Naz. During the pandemic it started to evolve. Now it is a new destination unto itself. Thoughtful details abound.

What Aegir made in 2022
So many lovely expressions of form, experiments, mediums, and results. (Including the food, which sometimes is the most I can make in a day.)

It’s a bright spot on the internet.

Ansel Adams Lego concept
Reddit user LobsterThermidor calls this “The Landscape Photographer”. I’d dig seeing a Lego series like this, with artists in their element/studio over recreating just their works.
The Funny Pages in Modern Times
David Friedman missed the funny pages. So he used ChatGPT to work through coding up a tool to select and deliver the dailies through a page generated by RSS feeds. One of the best uses of AI I’ve seen yet.

Akin to his Cloud Gate (”Bean”) in Chicago, the as yet to be named blob is quite lovely and I hope to see it in NYC.

A new model: Private equity and employee ownership
Saw this on Sunday Morning and it was heartwarming. I’d fathom there’s an untold side of the story where the private equity firm is making oodles, but to see employees get some benefit is wonderful.
Jason Forrest’s career chart
Followed the path to Jason’s site from the Eames quotes and I can get lost for days on his personal site. The career chart on his about / contact page offers a snapshot of his work and passions—a lovely bit of visualization.

Bottles of Veuve Clicquot
Justin Duke made a deal with his partner “to celebrate things we’re particularly proud of with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot.” And then he documents each moment. I really love this idea. (Plus also? There’s an RSS feed.)

Remove backgrounds in macOS
I knew this was a part of iOS but didn’t realize it was a contextual menu away on the Mac. Thanks Christian Heilmann!
