I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

The Week in Links

This weeks edi­tion con­tin­ues the evol­u­tion of the The Week in Links. Rather than present­ing a list of links of vary­ing length I decided it was time to start adding a little com­ment­ary and inject­ing some more of my interests and per­son­al­ity into the column. It is after all my per­son­al blog that it appears in.
This week cov­ers some tech­no­logy news, some views on Art and Cre­ativ­ity, Le Tour de France, how dress­ing could affect our approach to work and an incred­ible video that I highly recom­mend you watch with your Sunday morn­ing cof­fee or even­ing glass of wine.

  • The story of Win­dows 10 from inside Microsoft – It’s been a big week for com­put­ing with the arrival of Win­dows 10. I’ve long been a Mac user, and will be for a long time to come, but I have to say this release of Win­dows has me intrigued. I’m inter­ested to see how it does and wheth­er it can bring any trac­tion in the mobile space.
  • Approv­al & Art by Dav­id duCh­emin – I really iden­ti­fied with this when I read it, in par­tic­u­lar this short paragraph:

    The prob­lem is that safety, in many ways, is tox­ic to art. We get addicted to it. We cling to it and ven­ture out less and less. We risk less. We repeat what “works” and avoid what doesn’t. But if what works is what holds us back, it becomes a kind of sab­ot­age to keep doing it.

  • Tak­ing on the Tour de France – With the end of Le Tour last week, this VSCO Journ­al is timed nicely. Rather than your usu­al pho­to­graph­ic essay look­ing at Le Tour with a focus on the Pelo­ton this one has a more inter­est­ing take look­ing at those who are watch­ing as well.
