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.

Colossus by Pat Vale ›

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.
