Nike is looking for an Apparel Computational Designer 1 to join its team at their headquarters in Portland, USA. THE...

The James Brand Damascus Chapter Knife looks literally and figuratively ‘sharp’

The Chapter remains perhaps one of my most favorite knives ever. This is in part because they’re designed by The James Brand, a company that gets that sharp knives don’t need to look aggressive or tactical, and that they can channel a much more dapper aesthetic. Their knives sport a much more classy, urbane design language, and look like something a secret spy like James Bond would carry in his tuxedo (that’s not why the company is called James Brand, but it would make a great story).The Chapter...

Have The Arts Become A Closed-Loop Self-Reinforcing Echo Chamber?

Simon Dancey: “The picture now is of a middle-class sector reinforcing its own values in an echo chamber that compounds the structural inequalities of the UK. This self-endorsing closed shop is never going to shift persisting inequalities and will continue to exclude a large section of our community, its values and potential. This is morally unacceptable, economically stupid and socially disgraceful.”

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Glamorous Exile

Vain, Solzhenitsyn was less vain than most dissidents. He had no political deference, but a metaphysical humility had been beaten into him by what he had undergone. Exile was not a “new beginning” for him. He undertook it with dread, and a somewhat unrealistic idea of how tight a link he could maintain to the culture of the old country. – National Review

There’s Considerable Evidence That Theatre Can Make An Impact In American Justice. Here’s How

“Given that 85 percent of U.S. counties are home to some number of incarcerated individuals, it’s likely that most of our nation’s theatres are close to at least one correctional facility. In those facilities about two thirds of the incarcerated are people of color. As theatres work to diversify their audiences along lines of income and ethnicity, a growing percentage of those attendees will have a personal connection to mass incarceration, opening up new opportunities for relevance to communit...

A Show-and-Tell Video of Kevin Costner's Bad-Ass Custom Toyota Tundra

What's more interesting: To hear the statistics about a particular object, or to hear about how that object fits into someone's life? For engineers it's probably the former, for designers, the latter.Kevin Costner is perhaps more design-minded. He's got a pretty bad-ass customized Toyota Tundra that he uses on his ranch, and when Toyota caught wind of it, they smelled an opportunity for a promotional video. "Toyota asked me if I'd be willing to talk about [the truck]," Costner says. "And I wasn'...

Nut and Bolt Thread Checkers, Both Manufactured and DIY

If you have any kind of workshop, you undoubtedly have a collection of random nuts and bolts. It's incredibly satisfying when you can dip into the stash and locate the exact size you need to complete a project. The second most satisfying is when you bring a nut/bolt of unknown threading to the hardware store, screw them into that gauge they have hanging on the wall, and determine the precise threading so that you can acquire corresponding parts.You can actually buy that yellow thread checker the...

Unsealed Docs: Facebook Created Kids Game That Caused Them To Spend Millions

“Facebook created a system that allowed children to spend tens of millions of dollars through their parents’ credit cards and Paypal accounts on games and other goods without their parents’ knowledge and, despite concerns raised by game developers and solutions suggested by internal analysts, did nothing to fix the issue, according to a trove of documents unsealed from a 2012 class action lawsuit.” – Variety

The chemical elements that make up your smartphone are 'endangered'

The average smartphone is made up of about 30 chemical elements. But at least half of those elements could be in danger because of increasing scarcity. Now, scientists from the University of St Andrews have developed a new, unique periodic table that highlights the “90 natural elements that make up everything.” The table also focuses on the scarcity and vulnerability of elements that we use in our devices like smartphones and televisions. In the European Union alone, more than 10 million smartp...

Google Ethicist: Here’s How Technology Hijacks Your Mind

“Western Culture is built around ideals of individual choice and freedom. Millions of us fiercely defend our right to make “free” choices, while we ignore how those choices are manipulated upstream by menus we didn’t choose in the first place. This is exactly what magicians do. They give people the illusion of free choice while architecting the menu so that they win, no matter what you choose. I can’t emphasize enough how deep this insight is.” – Medium
