Although QR codes (also called matrix or 2D codes) have never really taken off here in the U.S., this will be fun to try out at SXSW: QR Codes @ SXSW.

Wired: A Look Back at the Dotcom Boom and Bust

Fri, 26 Feb 2010 07:40:53 -0700

Wired magazine has a great piece in the March 2010 issue on the dotcoom boom and bust, complete with illustrations, statistics, and quotes as if they were rendered by browsers from the period. Memorable if you lived and worked through it all. It doesn't do it justice like the print version, but here's the online version.

Brick Lamp by HC Wang

Wed, 17 Feb 2010 09:29:11 -0700

Brick Lamp by HC Wang. "You can prop the Brick Lamp up on any of its four sides to cast a gentle glow across a wall or table. It's not a super-bright task lamp, but instead the kind of subtle hint of light you want on your desk--all coming from a super-modern aluminum lamp that matches your everything-Mac desk." This would be a better fit for my workspace than the red lamp in the corner, which casts similar lighting.

Wed, 17 Feb 2010 09:15:12 -0700

This is brilliant and overdue thinking: Product packaging that allows for opening, testing, and repackaging.

It's proof that Microsoft realizes it's lagging far behind in OS innovation and is taking dramatic measures to correct its course.
