Things I missed in the last week

By Michael Mulvey on March 14, 2014 9:07 AM

Google removes underlined links - I'm saving this post for an upcoming essay on 'authentic digital experiences' (spoiler: having or not having underlines on your links doesn't make your digital experience any more or less authentic).

Amazon Prime price jumping to $99 in the US - I've been a Prime member for a few years now. I'm fine with the $20/year hike. Still a great deal.

A message from 1996:

IDC predicts that by January 1997, up to a fifth of America's top 500 companies boasting Web sites will have either closed them down or frozen their growth. Although more people are expected to peek at the Web this year, many will cancel their subscriptions and go back to watching television.

Neil Young launched a Kickstarter for his Pono Player - As I write this it's at 9,261 backers with more than $3 million dollars. This would be considered a failure for Apple or Samsung, but this is great news for Neil. Niche music, technology, films, etc can exist in this world. Not everything has to be a blockbuster.

Friday Stuff

Links, links, links. Life is a series of links. Shit happened this week. Here's a few things that caught my eye:

Tobias Frere-Jones is suing Jonathan Hoefler (via everywhere). The typography duo that brought you THE typeface of the 2000s—Gotham—is in court. This should remind you never to be envious of a perfect company or perfect marriage. They don't exist.

DENHAM PSYCHO (via Quipsologies). Well-executed (no pun intended) hipster remake of the business card and axe scenes in American Psycho (It's incredible how many guys in San Francisco look exactly like the ones depicted in this video).

Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee with Jay Leno. This episode is great. Most of em are. I'm happy Jerry is back with a new season.

MAMP. It let's you use your Mac as a server for local testing. I'm using it to work on a new Wordpress site. It's been around a while, but it's new to me (Hey, cut me some slack, I'm a designer, not a dev).

One-third of the 8,500 or so taxi drivers in San Francisco ... have ditched driving a registered cab in the last 12 months to drive for a private transportation startup like Uber, Lyft, or Sidecar instead. Woah.

The Bacon Method. Set oven to 400 degrees. Toss in tray of bacon. Set timer for 20 minutes. Then you have perfectly cooked bacon.

If I keep letting all these saved links pile up, my computer will most definitely burst. Some of these have been sitting around a while, sorry if you've seen them already.

The Car Crush - "I believe there is a car crush waiting out there for everyone, and if I'm doing my job then you will find it here." Amen.

X: The Unheard Music - I'm a documentary junkie, I have to carve out some time to check this. via The Loop

Speaking of documentaries, PressPlayPause looks interesting too, and you can decide if you want to download it for free or buy it on iTunes or Amazon. Bold move.

Designers' Friend - Super nerdy portfolio site.

Brackets: From Comp To Code - Badass tool for devs working with PSDs from us nit-picky designers. On that note, Macaw looks cool too.

Small Victories - "Small Victories is a simple way to make a website out of the contents of a Dropbox folder." Interesting.

Videry - Curated Videos for Designers

Uniform Resource Locator Purge

I'm in the process of weeding through all my starred links in Google Reader before the service shuts down next month.

This meaning I'll be posting a lot of links you might have already seen. Or haven't seen.

The thing about great links is they usually have an solid shelf-life.

It's great to see the Daily Exhaust fumes traveling around the tubes*.

*Notice how I don't watermark my images? You know why? These don't belong to me, even (other peoples') quotes I create in Photoshop and the scans I scan myself. These images belong to everyone.

Some Links | 8.20

Busy Monday, just links:

Despite the sorry state of the (print) magazine industry, Dan Frommer thinks its a great time for magazines.

Jason Fried has a piece in the NYTimes Opinions section and over at his company blog he connects the dots on how it happened.

Speaking of print, Graphic-ExchanGE always features some gourmet shit. Why do they insist on not deep-linking to their posts? All I have are their RSS pages. I love you, GE, but I hate you too.

Evan Williams (co-founder of Blogger, Twitter) is up to something new.

The Great Discontent has a profile up of Seth Godin. I'm loving their responsive layout too.

Social Print Studio has a great site and some great projects.

The history of revolutionary interfaces. (via The Loop)

This seems to be the year of video game-related Kickstarter projects. Panetary Annihilation looks incredible.

Steven Heller has what looks to be an awesome new book out on Comics Sketchbooks.

Backlog

Daily Exhaust is not my full-time job. This means many of the links I find daily I stash away in my Instapaper account and either take a while to get posted or sit around too long and go obsolete. Technology links are the most time-sensitive and usually go stale the quickest. Links focused on creativity, innovation and design usual stay fresh -- or get better with age, like wine.

The good news is at this point, I have a whole wine cellar of tasty links and time to start posting them.

Instead of dumping them on this site all at once, I'll be queueing them up to be posted in the coming weeks.

Hot nuggets for today:

NikeMashup.com
- once again, top notch interactive from Nike.

Thinking Machine 4: Play the Game - amazing, it shows you what moves the computer is thinking of by drawing lines over the chess board. Dope!

Rip DVD's with VLC - thanks LifeHacker

The web is dead, says co-founder of Flickr - why so glum? I can understand her point, but I'm not sure I agree with it.

Sitepoint discusses Microsoft Breaking HTML Email Rendering in Outlook 2007 and Campaign Monitor has some reactions here and here. It's de ja vú all over again.
