nothing hotter than a girl who just says what she wants, or just sticks it in her own ass from time to time.

Why Feedback Rarely Does What It’s Meant To

quote [ Telling people what we think of their performance doesn’t help them thrive and excel, and telling people how we think they should improve actually hinders learning. ]

That one could have gone without the explanatory tail and the business-y tone, but it illustrates that an easy way to loose people is to correct them.

The Norwegian Sweater Detective - The Craftsmanship Initiative

quote [ To LaFleur, Sundbø’s combined skills made her a unique researcher. “A Ph.D. could have gone to the Setesdal valley and interviewed 15 people about their pattern designs, but it wouldn’t have been the same,” she says. “She brings this innate technical knowledge to her academic pursuits. She’s a real ambassador for the importance of textiles in people’s lives.” ]

No sweat– this article on sweater knitting history touches interesting topics.

Cause of Death: Selfie

quote [ The fact remains that, right or wrong, our culture encourages extreme selfies. Acquiring a large social media following can be downright lucrative. Meanwhile, companies like Red Bull seem to promote risky selfies, making it that much more appealing to folks looking for sponsorship or more followers. ]

Got a little carried away on searching for song puns on this…

Blogging is most certainly not dead

quote [ It looks like a lot, but I kept each description short so you can either scan through quickly or take your time & explore everything. ]

Just some linkroll of not-dead-blogs as a newsletter. There's also a post on it.

The art of DJing: Jeff Mills

quote [ After so many years you learn how to pace it. I don't sweat, hardly ever. Because I've conditioned myself to not sweat so much. When it's very hot, very humid, I move less. Because I've been in many cases where it's just a disaster, I can't touch the mixer because it's soaking wet, with humidity dripping down, I can't grip the line levels and stuff. Sweat dripping, the headphones and the whole thing just becomes a mess. So over time I can't control that. ]

Talking about DJing is often as obnoxious as discussing Espresso machines but this interview somehow transports the relaxed craftsmanship of a veteran. Ok, a bit obnoxious maybe.

Also: no vinyl, interestingly.

Food in 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea | In Literature

quote [ Here is a preserve of sea-cucumber, which a Malay would declare to be unrivalled in the world; here is a cream, of which the milk has been furnished by the cetacea ]

Sorry, triggered by the shoutbox, here's the fitting quote for … milking lobsters and the like.

Covers biology –and– technology. Pretty rad, eh?

Or … is this animal cruelty?
