I really like this desktop (from my favorite source of desktop pictures).
Museum of Play (by Steelopus)
Sometimes I take photos.
This was December 2009.
I love the structural design of the interior of the Strong National Museum of Play. I don’t know if the architects intentionally made it look like a giant version of the steel-tube jungle gyms on which I grew up dislocating knuckles and spreading germs, but that’s what it reminds me of.
You know you’ve set the bar higher than anyone else in your industry when something this beautiful is remembered as a failure. (Taken with Instagram at Rochester, NY)
Current obsession: digging through my Aperture library to find photographs that would make good GelaSkins for my iPhone.
It bothers me that they don’t have any photographers in their roster of “Artists,” so if I find enough of my photos that I think will work, then I think I’ll inquire about becoming an Artist myself.
It’s upside down!
Yes. Yes it is. :-(
Trust me. It’s killing me to have it in this orientation… but it’s what the boss wanted (because the ThinkPad logo is also upside-down).
This thing is sexy. HDMI!
This is precisely why I’m so afraid to order my new iMac. They could drop a new design with a better graphics card and I/O at any moment. Dammit. All I really want is USB 3.0.
SimpleDesktops.com is absolutely fantastic.
Almost every day they offer new simple, elegant, and beautiful computer desktop/wallpaper designs. I recommend subscribing to the RSS so you don’t miss any of them. I’ve made a Desktop Images folder that I save them all into and let my Mac cycle through them on my external display every minute. It’s a slideshow of great design.
Seriously. Go check them out! There are hundreds of great designs!
Get on my wall!
This is one of the sexiest designs of anything that I’ve ever seen.
As a coat rack it’s functional, but it would work perfectly just as a piece of art on your wall.
I want it.
What she said.
So, does anyone have $1,100 I can borrow?
Let me rephrase in a simpler language: WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, my biggest problem with this whole Tumblr Popular Stuff thing isn’t the fact that it exists; it’s the fact that they used a star instead of a heart in the design.
As for the Popular Stuff itself, it is what you make of it. If you impose your own vision of it becoming a popularity contest and a race for hearts, then that’s all you will see in it.
On the other hand, if you see it as a way to find new people and interesting content, then how is it any different than the manner in which Favrd brought most of us together into a solid community?
There is nothing to worry about, until Ashton Kutcher uses Tumblr to punk Oprah and CNN does a story on it… then we can start worrying.
