1. This has been making the rounds lately, but I like it. Sadly, that last one isn’t currently true. (Click for larger.)
2. It would have been the 57th birthday of Steve Jobs today. Here he is on creativity:
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people…The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.
