The Bauhaus not only impacted design and architecture on an international level, but also revolutionized the way design schools conceptualize education as a means of imparting an integrated design approach where form follows function.
This is a great interview of David Carr, the well-known columnist at the New York Times where he publishes "The Media Equation" on the future of Media and Journalism. It was suggested to me by Serge van Oudenhove: thanks!
Carr was a speaker at a recent SxSWi pannel named the Curators and the Curated and he comes back in this interview on his "yes, but" about curation: yes, he believes content curators have an important role to play, quoting Maria Popova who was at that same pannel, but also pointing out the importance of attribution and credits, a "form of compensation" in the sometimes too free-for-all Web.
But his interview takes a step back looking at the future of publishing, including the business model challenges in the digital age.
He gives interesting persepctives making it a great read.
As co-founder and GM of BioWare, I’m very proud of the ME3 team; I personally believe Mass Effect 3 is the best work we’ve yet created. So, it’s incredibly painful to receive feedback from our core fans that the game’s endings were not up to their expectations. Our first instinct is to defend our work and point to the high ratings offered by critics – but out of respect to our fans, we need to accept the criticism and feedback with humility.
A good response from BioWare to the controversy surrounding the Mass Effect ending.
Through extensive observational research, I’ve discovered what works and doesn’t work for my daughter, so I’m going to shamelessly generalize my findings to all children and propose four essential guidelines for developers who work on iPad apps for children...
A no nonsense approach ...

"Fact #1: You don't need to be a content producer to market with content. Fact #2: Not all curators work in museums and have elbow patches."
Interesting analysis on the role curation can play in a content marketing strategy, coming from... a content creator.
Sharon Hurley Hall is a professional copywriter & blogger who wrote this as a guest post on Unbounce's blog (and you can find her on Scoop.it here). While she makes a living creating content, she rightly shows how curation makes sense in a Marketing Strategy (which to me doesn't mean creation doesn't or that the two should be opposed when they actually complete one another as - I think - we both agreed in the comments).
'Sustainable' is the new green. In a world where there is sustainable agriculture (farming that is adjusted to the local ecosystem), sustainable architecture (minimizing environmental impacts of new building) and even sustainable banking (socially responsible investments), we now have sustainable art, or art dealing with environmental issues.
"Today, let’s take a little detour [from the release of Titanic 3D] and talk about their other Most Successful Film of All Time, Avatar. Or perhaps more accurately, its two upcoming sequels, theme park, novel, comic book, TV and animated spin-offs. Sounds like there might be an awful lot of Avatar coming our way over the next five years or so."
