This weeks version of Link Drop Contextd has a lot more videos than usual. There’s nothing to point to why this is the case. There’s also the obligatory nods to street art and politics with technology as things that interest me. The tone of a lot of blogs these days feels like people are in survival mode but also very interested in what’s next. That’s still an open question but it doesn’t hurt to keep your eyes on what people aren’t just saying but the action behind it. And that inevitably that leads to the question of will it make money? While that’s hard to judge there’s other costs involved. If you don’t do anything are you hurting yourself more?

Brendan Dawes on the craft of making
I saw this ten minute talk a couple weeks ago at White Rabbit. I don’t know Brendan at all, but much to my surprise he had a lot of good things to say about Daylife’s api. But that’s not why I think people should watch this – his creative process about putting together random pieces as an experiment are quite fascinating. He takes three different ideas to combine them for a completely unexpected experience that otherwise would not have existed.

I kind of forgot about Death Cab for Cutie but was like hmm, this video is quite compelling. And it’s animated which I don’t think would have had the same impact otherwise.

MoMA Prefers Its Boring Unmolested Ads and Poster Boy & Aakash Nihalani Remix the MoMA Collection
This was such a great idea in so many ways. Considering that MoMA could use a bit of spark they really closed down an option to be creative. If an art institution isn’t willing to be creative or new, what industry is going to be?

If you’ve just moved to a new city and perhaps the locals speak a different language, how do you find and keep track of places you like to hang at?

The interesting stat from this is that most of the increase is not from people that read the paper version of the magazine. If that happens those stats would go through the roof.
