Pubit? Really?

Wow! Maybe my mind is in the gutter this morning, but when I received an email from Barnes & Noble today announcing a new self-publishing service for their Nook device, I had to do a triple take on the name. I mean, seriously? Pubit?! No matter how hard I try I can’t pronouce the name in which it was intended. It’s like the iPad naming, but worse. Did no one over in BN world bring this up? Is it just me?!

Screen Printing on the Cheap

Minneapolis-based author Andy McInnis and his team are in the process of finishing up a book about how to start screen-printing in a snap and on the cheap. As many of you know, I am a bit of a DIY printer myself, so I’m pretty stoked to see if there’s anything I can glean off of it. It’s sure to be a great resource for anyone interested in the art!

Also, be sure to check out this video that he made about an ingenious way to clean a screen. Wish I had car wash nearby… Great stuff!

Found this great video produced by The Office of Charles Eames for Herman Miller showcasing the production of the classic Shell Chair from start to finish. The music itself is worth the watch, quintessential Eames. Nice!

The Dynamic Duo

While I was drooling over the iPad at Apple’s site. I stumbled on this great video created by Jesse Rosten, that features two of the awesomest inventions ever combined, the iPad and… Velcro. Cool!

The Wilderness Downtown

Arcade Fire and writer/director Chris Milk teamed up with a huge collection of 2-D/3-D artists, filmmakers and coders to create The Wilderness Downtown. All coded in HTML5, this site is an incredibly rich and beautiful experience.

It’s recommended that, for the best experience, you use Chrome, but seeing as though Google was involved in the project, I can see why. However, I found that Firefox handled the experience a tad better.

Also, watch out Flash, this is proof that you’ve got some real competition.
