“We build experiences by manipulating their shadows”

“An important part of my design process now happens in the browser, and it has been extremely difficult to make myself work this way. However, as a result, I feel much closer to the ephemeral, flexible, multi-dimensional nature of the things I make. Designing for the Web is like visualizing a tesseract.

“Adventure may hurt you, but monotony will kill you”

Update (03/31/2016): Yöeme notes in the comments that he posted this quote and suddenly showed up everywhere else. Saw this in my Twitter feed, apparently being sold locally. I really just wanted to keep this nice little quote on my blog. Turns out it’s a project by Florida-based 48 Savvy Sailors.

Even while he was already crying, he was still goaded to dance. Needless to say, it already caused a Net Rage and it revived initiatives to permanently censure the long-notorious Revillame, who had smears on his name after the MTB incident and the Wowowee […]

WWIC

“…people in the newspaper industry saw the web as a newspaper. People in TV saw the web as TV, and people in book publishing saw it as a weird kind of potential book. But the web is not just some kind of magic all-absorbing meta-medium. It’s its own thing. And like other media it has a question that it answers better than any other.
