“Designer James Addison has been testing the puzzle-solving abilities of Royal Mail with cryptic clues and games written on envelopes. Every single one was delivered to the right destination.”
“Yellow and white areas on the cyclist and bike show regions that have the highest drag. The cyclist himself accounts for 72 per cent of the drag force, with his legs generating most of that. The frame and forks account for 5.7 per cent, and the gearing 5.2 per cent. Water bottles are lumpy and generate 4.5 per cent of the drag. External cabling makes up 3.8 per cent, which makes a strong argument for tucking it inside the frame. As for the ribbons streaming behind, the white lines indicate high-velocity airflow and the pink-blue lines indicate slow-moving regions.”
“No one is entitled to nonconsensual ‘free’ labor from artists, or anyone else for that matter. This should not be a controversial proclamation in 2014. The fact that it is greeted with self-righteous indignation from Silicon Valley’s true believers indicates a retrograde, sociopathic mindset that masks itself in self-serving rhetoric of “innovation” and “disruption”. Punching someone in the face and breaking their nose is also “disruptive” and “innovative,” but probably not something we want to incentivise and scale.”
If you access this site via jimmyfromshinagawa.com, (and as long as I have managed to get the domain mapping right!) you’ll notice a new layout and design. It’s WordPress based, and in my opinion, has a more modern look and feel. I like playing with new things. I use IFTTT to automatically post anything from here to the original blogger site and so that will continue, although with no additional formatting.
