5 Things on Friday #11

James Whatley

Items of note for the week ending Friday March 16th, 2012

  1. Gaming
    Quite literally one of the most mind-blowing Star Wars / video games stories I have ever read. It’s not a long one, nor is it that hard to understand. The guy behind it is an evil genius and yet, when the wheels come off, you do kind of feel sorry for both him and the ecosystem he created. Immense.
    .
  2. Moebius. R.I.P.
    Gifted. Influential. Ever-present but still quiet (and relatively unknown in the non-geek world), his work will be sorely missed but his legacy lives on – in ways that even he couldn’t possibly imagine. Read this amazing write up and learn something about the future-gazers of yesterday.
    .
  3. The Curator’s Code
    I don’t know why, but this article speaks to me. Perhaps it’s the multiple different sources that I pull on to put this kind of post together; perhaps it’s the amount of effort that goes into linking an article thoroughly and correctly; or perhaps it’s just nice to know that news-breakers (or should it be news-connectors) are getting the citations they deserve. Especially when you see it happen right in front of you.
    .
  4. TEDxObserver
    Seems late writing this one up (as it occurred on a Saturday and the cut-off date for this lot is Friday), however it was still one of the best things I’ve been to this year. Big up to Robbie for sorting me a ticket (I still owe you £60 chap) and you may as well check out his post on it too. Mine will follow at some point (when the workload slows up anyway).
    .
  5. Venice
    The most romantic city in the world. A long weekend [Friday through Monday] away begins and I am happy.
    Truly happy.

 

Bonuses:
Marek Pawloski asked me what I thought about Marvel comics using augmented reality, so I told him; Ewan Macloed asked me what I thought of Homeless Hotspots, I told him too; and if someone asked me what book I want on my kindle next, I’d say this one.
