Great Design

A Never-Ending Journey of Discovery

Sociologist-turned-designer David Carson takes a humorous romp through a slide show featuring some of his work along with found images.

As someone who dabbles with design for a living, I found this pretty insightful, but even if you don’t give a toss about the subject (although most people do, even if they pretend not to), Carson is delightfully witty with a marvelous sense of comic timing.

Future Interfaces

In more interesting matters… Behold, the mobile search engine!

This is what I wish the internet search will be able to do with a mobile device in the NEAR future. Touch screen, built in camera, scanner, WiFi, google map (hopefully google earth), google search, image search… all in one device. Like this way, when you can see a building through it, it gives you the image search result right on the spot.
