Off to "The Game" I go, the ironically pretentious name for the Harvard/Yale football game. (Ironic because people tell me it's a poor specimen of football.)
It's down in New Haven this year, where the prospect of 5 Kelvin weather is offset by the existence of real seats. (Unlike the little red brick school up here, whose stadium has hard concrete ledges packed twice deep with people.) Man I hate football. Wish I had that sports gene so I wasn't such a stick-in-the-mud.
Which game system would you ask Santa for - for business trips: the PSP or the DS?
Art, Books, and Thoughtful Design
Visited Douglas Coupland's website recently?
MIT Media Lab Prof. John Maeda has a delightful blog about the role of simplicity in good design.
MASS MoCA has new exhibits (in their fantastic art-gallery-in-a-former-factory in the Berkshires.)
Graphic design: the book jackets of Alvin Lustig.
Mad props to Prof. B for telling me that some scientist made colorful bubbles!
Well, off I go to the tundra of New Haven, clothed eight layers deep, with a scowl.
