These posts follow a simple formula. But, each week delivers different results and I don’t plan themes or focus areas. I take in what comes from suggestions (yes, I’m open to suggestions–thanks Don for sharing the great animation), my collected sources that I still read via RSS, email newsletters, and friends. I obviously don’t share it all. I curate the hell out of all that I take in. I have a few general rules. I try not to go too deep on any one discipline. This means no more than 3 (sometimes 4 if it’s just too good). I want to have a broad mix–not too much pure digital, some commerce, some art. I also try to find something fun (or random) to wrap it up and end on a lighter note. OK, now you know the secrets. Enjoy the result.
