Autopublished from RSS Original article

Weekly curated resources for designers — thinkers and makers.

“Look around us.

  • The people who ruined the internet
    “As the public begins to believe Google isn’t as useful anymore, what happens to the cottage industry of search engine optimization experts who struck content oil and smeared it all over the web?”
  • The other side of money
    “It dawned on my black-and-white mind that our stability was not as stable as I thought. When I arrived on the other side of money, I could not do the thing I had planned: to just make art and be happy.”
