Want To Create A Viral Brand Name? Beware The Literalist.

    This is the most overlooked, counterintuitive truth in naming – the difference between the way an internal naming committee will evaluate a potential brand name and the way a target audience will receive it. Every viral name is a provocation: Slack, Virgin, lululemon, Target, Yahoo, Caterpillar, Hotwire, Bluetooth, Google,  Oracle. To qualify as a provocation, a name must contain what most people would call “negative messages” for the goods and services the name is to represent.Fortunately, ...

16th Century Bookwheels, the E-Readers of the Renaissance, Get Brought to Life by 21st Century Designers

Most of us, through our computers or our even our phones, have access to more books than we could ever read in one lifetime. That certainly wouldn't have been the case in, say, the middle ages, when books — assuming you belonged to the elite who could read them in the first place — were rare and precious objects. Both books and literacy became more common during the Renaissance, though acquaintance with both could still be considered the sign of a potentially serious scholar. And for the...

Philip K. Dick: "If You Find This World Bad, You Should See Some of the Others"

In September 1977 at the 4eme Festival de la Science Fiction in Metz, France, surrealist author Philip K. Dick delivered an astounding address with the title, "If You Find This World Bad, You Should See Some of the Others." He wasn't joking. The speech spanned the themes that define Dick's work and also his life: visionary experiences, déjà vu, the simulation hypothesis, and the nature of reality. Far fucking out. Here are a few choice bits: The subject of this speech is a topic which...

‘Republicans for Biden’ are Gun Owners’ Enemies Inside the Gates

The bookish parade of paycheck patriots

When I was still hosting an overnight radio show, a woman called in at zero-dark-thirty to brag she had just purchased her 26th anti-Bill Clinton book. “Didn’t the first 25 convince you Slick Willie is unfit for office?” I asked. “Or has it become a thing, like collecting Beanie Babies or Franklin Mint Harlequin plates?” I continued with my characteristic searing wit. “You can never have too much truth,” she said, putting me in my place. I mean, not even a talk radio savant can argue with that. ...

Why Should We Read Melville’s Moby-Dick? A TED-Ed Animation Makes the Case

Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick is a major 19th epic and a “Great American Novel” that routinely appears on best-of-all-time lists next to Homer and Dante. This grand literary judgment descends from early 20th century critics who rescued the novel from obscurity after decades of scorn and neglect. When the book first appeared in 1851, no one knew what to make of Melville’s cosmic whaling revenge tale. Reviews were highly mixed, sales dismal, the book flopped. This Moby-Dick revival happened ...

Tommy Armour gets Spicy with 303 Milled Series Putters

The original Tommy Armour (winner of the 1927 U.S. Open, 1930 PGA Championship and 1931 Open Championship among other titles) may or may not have been the stereotypical “dour Scot.” But if he was, he would be dismayed to discover how the new Tommy Armour milled putters got their names. (More on that later.) Rest assured, however, that the “Silver Scot” would have approved of the product itself. PEPPERS and WHATNOT New from Tommy Armour, the 303 Milled Series Putter comes in four head shapes,...
