  • Scientists Are Concerned About Cancer in Animals
    new nasty, virulent forms of cancer are being discovered in wild animals, that are the result of heavy carcinogenic environmental contamination. are human beings really the top of the evolutionary chain?

  • Isolator
    my new favorite app. when you need to concentrate on something your doing in a particular application (like writing a blog post in Safari or designing something out in photoshop) just hit the command keys for this app and it hides all your other app windows and the dock and presents your current working window on a black background. hit it again to return the windows. should be built into Mac OS X.
  • Minimal Mac
    one my new favorite blogs. tons of tips on reducing the visual clutter on your desktop (both the virtual and analog ones). less is more.

  • ZumoDrive – Hybrid Cloud storage for all your documents and media
    pretty bad-ass personal cloud file storage. check out the demo. amazing piece of software. this is how google's G-drive should work once it finally arrives.
  • The Crisis of Credit Visualized
    "The goal of giving form to a complex situation like the credit crisis is to quickly supply the essence of the situation to those unfamiliar and uninitiated. This project was completed as part of my thesis work in the Media Design Program, a graduate studio at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California." – incredible animated presentation to explain those big scary words we've all heard recently: sub-prime mortgage, collateralized debt obligations, credit default swaps, etc….
