Some blogs I’m loving for their loose, associative wanderings through their worlds:
- Jan Chipchase – Future Perfect
- I wound up at a crazy oil industry conference in England last January and sat with this great designer from Nokia who seemed totally fun and interesting. Months later I stumbled across this blog and started reading it, and only later put together that it was the same guy. He lives in Japan and travels a lot and posts thoughts and pictures from wherever he and his mind have wandered. See for example “Inherent Properties Communicating Costs.”
- I have no idea what this is or where I found it, but it makes me happy every day.
- Particularly, the blog all dog-eared pages entries, which are what they say they are. The rest is great, too. (Mike is an acquaintance.)
- One of many tumblelogs (in fact, the one pictured on the Wikipedia page for the term), which are a whole trend of this type on their own (with, of course, Twitter and friends fitting right beside). But this is my favorite and the only one I bother to read.
- During a cut-down-on-distractions campaign, I mass-unsubscribed from feeds and left swissmiss behind, but kept missing it and checking in on it. One day I came back to it and thought, “why did I ever cut this?” and have been happy ever since. (Her Flickr photos are great, too — the “ waiting for/in the elevator” set is art from the everyday that I love every time.)
I feel like the blogity is speeding up somehow, moving on from realism to a more efficient form of whatever it is we’ve been doing. And I’m liking that.
