As the summer heat rises in our hemisphere it seems that the river of content online dries up to a slow trickle. I wonder if that means I should expect more from our friends Down Under during these months?
Here are a few things that caught my attention:
- Mars on Google Maps – Google has a jump on helping you find the nearest Starbucks when Elon Musk settles the first Martian village.
- Computer History Museum video – An interview with key people that created the iPhone 10 years ago including Scott Forstall. Fascinating interview and a laid back interview by Markoff.
- US River Basins map – A colorful illustration of the various river basins of the US. Gorgeous and educational.
- Interview with Maciej Cegłowski – The Verge interviews Pinboard’s Cegłowski. Main takeaway, as things grow or switch focus it will inevitably alienate some subset of its users. Finding those niches could earn you a nice living.
