September 17th: Weekly Design Links

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”― Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Summer is fading fast and the spiced pumpkin is happening early. It’s the home stretch run of 2019–which is a crazy thought. Before we know it, we’ll be in the thick of Thanksgiving, the holiday rush and New Years. I’m getting ahead of myself. There’s still a lot of work to do before then. Check out these links and then get back to it.
