  1. » #50 - Advice for new managers: pt. 1

    A good couple of essays on being a manager. I find this stuff fascinating, although I’m not a manager.

  2. Readernaut

    Nicely done site for not only logging your reading but keeping notes on it too.

  3. Modern History

    Awesome stuff: “a series of collages assembled exclusively from screen grabs of Youtube videos.” Free printable versions too. Remind me of John Martin paintings. (via Kottke)

  4. Buildings and Food: How to look at billboards

    Brilliant essay from 1960 about how outdoor advertising is entirely wrong. Wish I’d written it. When I rule the world outdoor advertising will be banned. (via Kottke)

    Meeting in turn was slightly marred by non-appearance of client due to their calendaring error. Thanks fate. I will tempt you no more.

    Nice sunny cycle into town for a meeting slightly marred by the smelly heated crowded drain of Shaftesbury Avenue. Too many people.

    Tempting fate. All of the fates. Come ON!

    Swum, breakfasted, five days of a philandering Pepys prepared. To work!
