  1. Malcolm Gladwell - The Ecology of Success

    Now, Malcolm Gladwell is taking on success itself, in a new book called “Outliers.” He’s looking at how society and culture determine who we are, and in particular, what accounts for super-success — for the outsized success of superstars.

    It’s not what you may think, he says. Not genes or bootstrap grit. There’s a whole ecology to it, he says. Time Magazine calls his new book “a frontal assault on the great American myth of the self-made man.”

    This hour, On Point: Malcolm Gladwell, on the ecology of success.

  2. Brian Greene | Icarus at the Edge of Time

    Recorded 9/23/2008 - Recognized for his groundbreaking discoveries in superstring theory, Brian Greene is also well- known as the host of the Public Broadcasting Service's NOVA series based on his book, The Elegant Universe. A professor of mathematics and physics at Columbia University, where he researches string theory and quantum gravity, Greene's goal is to make complex scientific principles accessible to general audiences. Visually stunning, with full-color images from the Hubble Space Telescope, Icarus at the Edge of Time is a futuristic retelling of the fable of Icarus: instead of the sun, a black hole.

  3. Branding for Designers - an Interview with Lea Alcantara

    Another podcast episode from my "Re-Design Series". {Don't worry, I'll venture-out onto the webernets for more content soon…}

    During the interview, Lea talked about CONSISTENCY, and how this is is the most important aspect of branding.

    After doing some self-examination, I feel that consistency is one area I need to improve going-forward, both in presentation and site content.
