This street art is absolutely stunning. A Young artist has turned Jerusalem’s market into gallery of famous faces by spray painting murals on the shutters of the stores. I hope it’s still all there or even more complete next time I’m in Jerusalem!
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.
- Creativity is a Gift by Shawn Blanc
- HP slaps dress code on R&D geeks: Bin that T‑shirt, put on this tie on The Register
- Toronto at Night by Guillermo Ramos
I was going to save this for Sunday’s edition of The Week in Links, but I thought it was far too cool for that and deserved it’s own post. Line drawing has always been something I enjoyed, and Colossus by Pat Vale is a stunning example. Spend a few minutes of your time watching it this evening, be inspired.
There’s not a lot to add to these other than wow.
