  1. Steve Jobs: ‘Computer Science Is A Liberal Art’ : NPR

    Everyone should be able to harness technology, Jobs told Fresh Air’s Terry Gross in 1996. In memory of Apple’s co-founder and former CEO, we listen back to excerpts of their conversation. "Our goal was to bring a liberal arts perspective … to what had traditionally been a very geeky technology," he said.

    Slides here: http://www.webdirections.org/resources/mark-boulton-designing-grid-systems/#slides

    Grid sys tems have been used in print design, archi tec ture and inte rior design for gen­er a tions. Now, on the web, the same rules of grid sys tem com po si tion and usage no longer apply. Content is viewed in many ways; from RSS feeds to email. Content is viewed on many devices; from mobile phones to lap tops. Users can manip u late the browser, they can remove con tent, resize the can vas, resize the type faces. A designer is no longer in con trol of this pre sen ta tion. So where do grid sys tems fit in to all that?

He’s worked in Sydney, London and Manchester as an Art Director for clients such as the BBC, T-Mobile, British Airways, and Toyota. Mark now runs his own design studio, Mark Boulton Design.

  4. Anthony Bourdain’s Sharp Knives

    http://www.onpointradio.org/2010/06/chef-anthony-bourdains-sharp-knives

    Ten years ago, professional chef and sharp-edged raconteur Anthony Bourdain took out his literary boning knife and went to work on the hidden world of the professional kitchen.

    His bestselling “Kitchen Confidential” told wild stories – way out of school – of sex, drugs and scary hygiene in the realm of the tony restaurant and haute cuisine.

    Then Bourdain went big. Book after book, and a big TV show – “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” — that took his wicked wit and eye all over the world.

    Now he’s looking back. Still tough.
