Atomic Linky

Next generation design tool Atomic has officially launched.
“Design has become an essential function inside every modern software business, and is destined to become a major software category. Atomic has over 30,000 beta users and many thousands more reviewing their designs, and we’ve only just begun.
The world’s most recognisable brands are using Atomic to create interactive prototypes without ever touching a line of code. It’s powerful, insanely fast and even runs in the browser, so there’s nothing to install and available everywhere. We’re determined to make prototyping more available to designers, and design more available to everyone.”
My friend Grant is one of the original gangsters of Atomic, and I am insanely happy for him.
Here’s the overview video:

I wrote a big article about the racism embedded in Lovecraft’s famous story “The Call of Cthulhu”, and whether you can extract it when you do your follow up Cthulhu thing. (Everybody’s doing follow-up Cthulhu things at the moment. Lovecraft = so hot right now.)

Peanuts – strip out the last panel and all you get is the despair.

The Grauniad has a great interview with wonderful cartoonist Kate Beaton

How did I not know about this December 2014 video by NASA interns, “All About That Space”?

New Ta-Nehisi Coates epic act of journalism to rend your heart and challenge your understanding: The Black family in the age of mass incarceration. Intimately personal to the experience of Black America, but given the way the USA tends to export its cultural discourse, crucial reading all over the place.

Can rice actually save your wet phone?

Why do we admire mobsters? It’s a bit once-over-lightly, but this is something I wonder myself every time I bounce off “The Sopranos”.

And finally, ads for cocaine paraphenalia from the 70s. These seem so strange now, our perception of that drug has changed so much over the years.

    Regarding cocaine, there’s a good book called “The Candy Machine” (http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Candy-Machine-Cocaine-World/dp/0141034467) that details its explosion in popularity and changing perceptions about it over time. The depressing teal deer is “white people drugs good, other-colours-people drugs bad” but I’d thoroughly recommend actually reading the whole thing.
