But these days you can capture a scent like a photograph, feel renderings in the palm of your hand, and see web browsers projected onto the sidewalk. So why not taste your type? The sensible, informative Times font is newly appropriated as the most important meal of the day: breakfast. Times was created (supervised by Stanley Morison and drawn by Victor Lardent) in 1931 for the newspaper The Times and for decades every morning this font was being gulped down by the eyes of the British families while eating fat fried eggs with the pig strips. Courier New morphs into the more casual sandwich: Courier was designed by Howard 'Bud’ Kettler in 1955 and it soon became a standard font used throughout the typewriter industry. The “soft, bold, and smooth letters” of Gothic 821 Condensed are perhaps best embodied by a cup of coffee. [h/t Designboom]
Game about Squares www.entrepreneur How To Make A GIF Without Photoshop Create An Intimate Map Of Your Life, Using Just Your Email Inbox We rarely think twice when sending an email, or adding a few CCs just for good measure. But these small interactions add up, and when deconstructed en masse, will reveal more about you than you might ever expect. Immersion is an interactive network data visualization created at MIT Media Lab’s Macro Connections group by Deepak Jagdish, Daniel Smilkov and Cesar Hidalgo. All you do is give the site access to your Gmail account. It promises to look only at the email headers: From, To, CC, and timestamp fields within your email history. And through the wonders of data mining, it will build an extremely accurate web of your personal relationships. “We are basically counting each multi-personal email as an expression of a connection between the people involved in that email,” Hidalgo tells me. Interestingly enough, Immersion started as a quest to redesign the email inbox. My last week. “Certainly, we would like to evoke feelings of reflection,” Hidalgo explains. My last month. Try it here.

Mom, I Have Two Boyfriends: How I Discovered I Was Polyamorous at 27 I used to be poly, for about 5-6 years in my early 20s, until I realized that there's a physics problem involved. Love requires time and energy. Time and energy are finite. Thus, there is only so much love one can actually give, long term, without eventually becoming drained & exhausted. If each person gets half your time and energy, you have two half-assed relationships. Granted, these were all emotional relationships and not merely superficial ones. Flagged Hi there! I've been non-monogamous for nearly 10 years, and openly poly for the past 5. The novely isn't a major component, but it can be nice to have. For me, I'm able to date a lot and long term (or short term) because I make my own hours, and I'm a poly blogger and activist. Yeah, that's what I have a hard time wrapping my head around.

A Typeface Where Every Letter Is An Optical Illusion A good illusion is a few different things all at once. Depending on how you look at it, you could say it’s a work of art, a puzzle, or a piece of graphic design (Or an old woman! Or a young woman! Or a candlestick!) The typeface was created by Jacques Le Bailly, a Dutch type designer who works under the pseudonym Baron von Fonthausen (apparently not your typical stuffy aristocrat but rather one of those eccentric noblemen you occasionally read about who were into building secret passageways and joining science cults and stuff like that). At first, Le Bailly tried to base all his letters on a single shape--the rounded rectangle--but he found the results unsatisfactory. Some letters were easy to construct, others were far more complex. As the project developed, Le Bailly spent more time ensuring that the final product would be a cohesive, coherent typeface, rather than simply a collection of loosely related illusions.
