Great Australian piece on marriage. Very well done all the way through to the end.
iOS 5 brought us the ability to use the “up” volume button on an iPhone to take a picture but I just read in lifehacker that you can use the iPhone’s earbud remote volume control to do the same thing. This will allow the propping up of the iPhone and hands-free tripping of the shutter button, essentially a cable release.
I don’t use those earbuds (can’t fit in my ears) but I think I might start carrying them now.
I first posted about Susan Kare here: Making the Macintosh Project but I’ve known about her since the mid-1980′s because both her icon and font designs were the “face” of the original Macintosh and stayed with us for close to ten years.
Fantastic series of landscape photographs.

Juan Rayos has made a wonderful introduction to Spain’s national art museum in Madrid. Both the video and background music are excellent. Beautifully produced. Watch full screen, very well worth it. Chock full of visual ideas and visual design beauty.
This video introduces Museo Reina Sofía, a expanded museum with various sites and locations (Sabatini Building, Nouvel Building, Palacio de Cristal and Palacio de Velázquez), experiences and audiences. Along with this idea of campus, the collection, exhibitions and public programs are shown as a new form of mediation between the audience and the Museum’s program.
PS: Now I know where Picasso’s Guernica ended up.

Ilya Marritz has an amazing story on All Things Considered: NYC Taxi Medallions Fetch ‘Unbelievable’ Returns.
In New York City one needs a “medallion” (permit) to drive a taxi. There are only 13,237 taxi medallions in New York and have been since the 1930s. Listen to the story, it’s incredible.
