Another Site Worth a Bookmark

I’m very busy this week, garage door to paint and other stuff to do. But, there are a few of you who visit everyday. These quick blogs are for you.

Yesterday I came upon this site: http://www.ted.com. I had watched a  video on newspaper design and noted it originated with TED.com. The video was excellent, recalling The London Free Press redesign efforts of year’s past.

I googled TED.com. I watched a few of the videos and I must note that these videos played almost totally free of the hesitations. This is quite unlike the on-line videos done by my local newspaper, The London Free Press, part of the Sun Media/Quebecor Media empire. Often I simply move on rather than endure the halting video and choppy sound.

A quick viewing of a few of the other videos on the TED.com site, left me thinking that I disagreed with some of what was said but still I was left thinking. That’s good. I’m going to learn more about old TED.

The video of Jacek Utko discussing his lively, engaging designs done for European papers is worth a view, if you have the time. It only lasts six minutes. Could good design save newspapers — at least for now? Jacek Utko thinks so.

Pay close attention when, at the two minute mark, he talks about his revelation, his moment of inspiration, brought about by a viewing of the Cirque du Soleil in London, UK. Utko realized that the Canadians took a creaking, rundown, boring form of entertainment and took it to the highest possible level of performance art. He decided to do the same thing with creaking, rundown, boring newspapers.

The time is now for newspapers to take their creaky, boring Internet designs and attack them with the creativity that Utko brought to his newspaper redesigns. As Utko says, “Give power to designers.”

I'm going to have to learn the names of these flowers. I just call this 'pink'.

All lilies do not like to bloom at the same time.

Another new lily bloom has appeared. See all my lilies that have bloomed, as of today, here.

All lilies do not bloom at the same time. Some are early bloomers and others are late. This keeps a continuous stream of new blooms appearing for weeks.

The Internet is just so cool. I ordered five more different lilies from Horner Lilies in Thorndale over the Internet. I got the confirmation of my order by e-mail this morning. I didn’t have to burn even a litre of gas. The Internet is green.

(This is not an ad. I just like Horner Lilies.)
