Pretty diverse week — industrial design, Google Glass, maps, art, reading material, and of course accordions.
- On the way back from getting coffee, Sergei, Yu, and I were behind a guy for several blocks and Sergei became obsessed with his bag. I got close enough to read the label: Côte et Ciel. It was this bag, which is a cool and unique design (but costs €179.00, alas).
- The Periodic Table of Typefaces includes those that are “popular, influential, and notorious.”
- Google Glass UI Guidelines are an interesting read, and the closest most of us will get to actually seeing Google Glass for a good while, I think.
- You probably already saw this when it made the rounds on the design twittersphere, but Forecast.io is pretty slick. Their blog is interesting too.
- LittleIpsum is a lightweight OSX app for generating filler text.
- Some scientists have generated a map of America based on who people hang out with, using data from Where’s George to track how far money, and by extension, people, travel and defining regions based on those movements.

- There’s some good reading at Svbtle magazine and Medium.
- Turn your volume up and check out this responsive design.
